Top end with 4.10 gears will be reached in 6th gear instead of 5th. A C6 with gears can reach a top speed of more than 186 MPH depending on the engine modification.

And if anyone dares not agree us they are automatically insecure. Can we agree? And I agree they are just cars and we should agree on all of them and enjoy all of them. After all who needs opinions when we can all just agree?
I will agree that you have issues.

So let me get this straight. If someone on this forum does not like the GTR he/she is automatically insecure? He/she must agree with you. He/she must like it and not have a opinion. If their opinion is not one you agree with they must therfore be insecure.

And after you make a statement that you have owned all of the cars someone cannot poke a little fun at that claim?

These are your words. """Hell, I've owned em all, MB, BMW, and came damn close to a 911 turbo last week. But you know what? I bought the GTR instead."""


Sir, you need to lighten up a bit.

You guys making the comparison about the rear end, take a look at this.

Outstanding post.

So the Vette has the Cobalt steering wheel, but the Nissan has the entire rear end.

There is always some one faster. Buddy has one that did the half mile race and did a 204MPH..1322 RWHP.

Why not? Get him to go with you to the local drag strip or road course - depending on what kind of "faster" you guys are debating.

If neither is available there is always the deserted stretch of freeway at 2 AM.

At some point someone will come along and say it looks better in person then in pictures. I have seen that a thousand times stated about the GTR. That would be like showing someone a picture of your wife or girlfriend and saying but she looks better in person.
Think the new GTR and the C7 side views have a lot in common.

Nissan called the GTR a supercar and while it may be performance wise I think styling wise they missed the boat. I just expected something more exotic looking. Of course I guess that could be said about the ZR1 but again...a step up from a Z06 and from a cost standpoint developmentally it made sense for GM. Not that it matters now

I agree. And honestly, the 370z is better looking. But if someone gave me a GTR, no way I would turn it down! But it doesn't look like a 90,000 dollar car to me.

You better hope that he doesnt ever realize that with a tune and intake, he can get close to 600 at the wheels!

My buddies GTR gets 592 to the wheels and runs 11.2 @ 5800' elevation.
