Loading Comparison...


The Nissan GT-R is one of the fastest production cars in the world, while still being easy to drive around town. This makes it phenomenal, and unusual. It performs like a brute but isn’t one. It used to be, but over the years Nissan engineers have refined its manners and sharpened its performance by improving steering, handling and ride. The acceleration is blistering and cornering brilliant.

The GT-R might be seen as a composite, combining ideas and directions in form, function and spirit to become part supercar, part daily driver coupe, and part tuner car. For example it has a back seat that can fit two kids. Only the Porsche 911 Turbo also has a back seat, but it’s smaller. The GT-R has roomy front seats and useful trunk space as well. And it gets almost 20 mpg.

Under the long hood there is a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 making 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque, mated to a dual-clutch transmission and amazing all-wheel-drive system. It’s the key to the cornering, through grip and wide sticky tires.

In the GT-R, you can sling yourself to 60 miles per hour in a mere 2.7 seconds, and find yourself at 100 mph in another blink. It competes with upmarket cars like the Porsche 911 Turbo, Corvette Z06, Jaguar F-Type, Viper, and a number of Mercedes-Benz AMG and BMW M models. You could add supercars like the Ferrari 458 and new Acura NSX. But in terms of performance-per dollar, at a cost of just over $100k, the GT-R is a good value. Although nothing like the Corvette, still the hands-down winner in that category.

For 2016 there is a new model, the 45th Anniversary Gold Edition, painted in a retro color called Silica Brass. Less than 30 of these models will be sold in the United States. Taken away in 2016 is the Track Edition, a stripped model with no rear seat and 20-inch black alloy wheels. Hard-core drivers and track-day enthusiasts will miss it.


The Nissan GT-R ($101,770) comes in Black Edition ($111,510), 45th Anniversary Gold Edition, and GT-R NISMO ($149,990) versions.

The NISMO features aerodynamic bits from racing, including a rear spoiler, tapered rear bumper, and carbon-fiber pieces for the front end, and a tweaked engine making 600 hp, and black six-spoke wheels like the real racecar. Inside, there’s Alcantara trim and Recaro seats with carbon-fiber backs. And there’s a telemetry system that enables track-day drivers to download their performance.

The Black Edition has Recaro seats with a black-and red-interior.

Standard equipment in every GT-R includes Bluetooth, Bose audio, and 3D navigation.


The GT-R is probably the least distinctive of cars in its category. The Corvette, Porsche, Viper, Jaguar, NSX, even the Nissan 370Z all have an iconic shape. The GT-R looks like a generic powerful Japanese sports car, or even a kit car. Its jagged profile, especially where the roofline chops into the rear end, is intriguing but not iconic.

That’s not to say there’s no drama in the details. It flaunts fat fender flares, deep air scoops, and a humongous rear wing. But the unimaginative round taillights blow it.


Nissan has cut interior corners to keep the price down. Without the optional Premium interior package, the cabin looks inexpensive. With it, the level of luxury is about like an Infiniti.

The driver’s position and point of view is cockpit-like. The instrument panel is angled toward his or her seat, which is heavily bolstered and rather upright.

We wouldn’t call the GT-R loud inside, we would say it has a lot of aural mechanical charm, which might become less charming on a long road trip. When you change gears you can hear the clutch and transaxle, although it’s sometimes muffled by wind noise.

Driving Impressions

The GT-R has a top speed of 196 mph and can outperform supercars costing twice as much. Or it can cruise around town to do errands.

It has three modes, to suit your moods and/or the road: Normal, Comfort and Race. They are pretty much true to their names. Comfort makes the car totally tractable with a nice ride around town. Race does its rigid quick job on the track, the only place you need it. Normal is a bit sporty, less relaxed than Comfort. These modes change the algorithms for throttle response, suspension firmness, transmission shift points and speed, along with the dynamic control traction and stability system.

Cruising along in docile Comfort and sixth gear, you can hear the whistle of the turbos and soft whine of the four exhausts. The GT-R doesn’t scream like a Ferrari or roar like a V8 Shelby GT500; the Nissan V6 note is distinctive, like a deep whine through a long tube.

The all-wheel-drive system delivers fantastic grip and cornering. It goes from rear-wheel drive to 50/50 front/rear, depending on speed, lateral acceleration, steering angles, tire slip, road surface and yaw rate. The suspension uses Bilstein dampers built for the GT-R to go with its springs and rigid chassis.

The massive Brembo brakes, six-piston in front and four- in rear, are firm, fadeless and fearless. The paddle-shifting transmission changes gears smartly even in Comfort mode, although because the paddles are mounted on the steering column and not the wheel itself, it’s not easy to shift in a corner when the wheel is turned.

Driving the GT-R on the track can be video game-like, with that eye-popping acceleration and grip that won’t quit. Until it does quit, when the rear slides out from you with too much power all at once. But the stability control saves you, and the balance is excellent. The weight distribution is good because the transaxle is mounted at the rear.

It’s an awesome thing to wind the GT-R into a long sweeper at 100 mph or more and be almost relaxed as it just hangs in there, no worries, it can do more. Now imagine the Nismo GT-R with another 55 horsepower.


The Nissan GT-R is almost a supercar, with nondescript styling, not counting its wings, flares and fat tires. It has neck-snapping acceleration, neck-stretching cornering, and neck-flopping braking. Its simple interior helps keep the cost down. It’s mechanically distinctive, if not visually so. It’s not like the Corvette, Viper, or others. Its twin-turbo V6 engine is race bred, with a rich history of wins.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
