Our Verdict

Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R is not a cheap car, but it’s better value for money than cars that are seemingly as fast

Why isn't Nissan employing this guy!, it's a real head turner now, ok, it's not perfect as a road car, but if it looked like Tommy Kaira's who'd care?

This looks rather nice and Tommy Kaira's being doing this for some years now I especially liked his R32 limited edition.

Sorry - but it's a bit naff in my eyes - I prefer my standard-looking car ...

Ah yes - always wanted a car in "Wet Carbon". I'm surprised Lady GaGa hasn't appeared in wet carbon , or did I miss something ?

38Carssofar,but this makes the current car look like a Mk1, it virtually makes the current car look dated already!, if you like it takes the Scharzsenager look and smooths it out a bit!?

To me - it looks like they've glued a giant-sized tea tray to the underside - there's too much plastic to;

a/ trip over when entering and exiting the car and

b/ ground out on our wonderful speed humps ...
