The Nissan GT-R has been through many updates and this new version is the best yet. It looks better than its predecessors and packs more performance too. It retains its ability to take on rivals like the Porsche 911 and Audi R8 and even can take on the likes of Maserati, Lamborghini and Ferrari. That too at a much lower price point. Sadly, it still doesn’t look sexy. And neither it sounds good. Bob Rupani has already driven the new Nissan GT-R on the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamp. Read our detailed first drive review here.
