Motor Trend Shootout

First off I have to give a HUGE hat tip to Motor Trend for putting this comparison together and secondly, thank you, thank you, thank you for enlisting the help of Randy Pobst as the test driver. Pobst’s is not only an amazing driver, but his descriptions of these amazing machines is also dead-on balls accurate. Pitted against each other are the 2012 Nissan GT-R, 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the 2011 Shelby GT500. The goal was to bring together three big horsepower performance cars that cost under $100,000 and have them go head to head in a full-on preformance battle. The Shelby Mustang is the cheapest at $55,330. It comes stock with 550 hp, a live rear axle and a traditional 6-speed manual gearbox. Then there’s the $98,000 Corvette Z06 with the performance package. It’s got 505 hp, is the lightest of the bunch at 3,200 lbs. and takes the most talent to drive quickly. Last but not least is the just under $92,000 Nissan GT-R. It’s all-wheel-drive, has an amazing double-clutch automatic gearbox and is also the easiest to drive. The video is about 20 minutes long and is completely worth watching in its entirety. Mr. Pobst does a great job, and gives us some true honest opinions on three off the coolest cars in the sub-100k market today. Click through for the video.
