Video: Properly Racing A Nissan GT-R


The Nissan GT-R is many amazing things, there’s no doubting that. It’s an absolute monster on the race track, and as a street car it’s feared by all. Granted, it’s driven mostly by technology, right? There’s no manual gearbox; it has a computer and navigation system that was designed by Kazunori Yamauchi, the inventor of Gran Turismo.

With all-wheel drive and 545 horsepower in the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition, it’s certainly no slouch on a day-to-day basis. But as I said, it has insane computer systems that control everything. In fact, it takes a real professional to even drive it sideways. To extract its full potential, however, it really only takes a person in the driver’s seat to pull the gearstick back to D and let it rip.

So you’d think it’s basically just a super car that drives itself, even when in a racing situation, correct? Well, I would happen to agree with you in most cases. However, the boys over at That Racing Channel have decided to take this claim head-on and show you just how difficult it can be to drive the Godzilla.
