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!?

Peter,

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 ...

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
