Yes, the Nissan GT-R is a supercar with a very reasonable price tag, but if you’re focused on the economic value alone you’re missing the point of this car. Very smart people have been locked away underground, helping to provide the newest GT-R with some of the most advanced technology available. As a result, the 2013 GT-R is back with even more power, an improved transmission, and reworked suspension- along with the same old incredible rush factor. Check it out.
Nissan GT-R Trims and Feature Highlights
The GT-R is a world class performance car that carries a rare starting price under $100,000. If you don’t see the value here, keep in mind that many exotic alternatives are being shopped around for two to three times as much, or more. In that respect, GT-R really is a bargain supercar. What makes it so special? A twin turbo V6 engine carrying 545 horsepower is a good place to start; once inside drivers are given a video game atmosphere that allows for total control of the driving experience.
For 2013, Nissan offers the GT-R in Premium and Black Editions, the latter gaining black 20 inch alloy wheels, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, leather Recaro seats, and a specialized red & black interior scheme. Standards on both trims include the aforementioned twin turbo V6, 20 inch alloys fitted with performance tires, all-wheel drive, Nissan/Brembo brakes, lightweight aluminum & carbon fiber parts, paddle shifters, an electronically controlled suspension, and a navigation/data center in which the rearview monitor is the least impressive thing about it. If you ever do get tired of listening to engine revs, you’ve got control of an 11 speaker Bose sound system. Standard Bluetooth allows for a hands-on driving experience- and you’ll need both hands to experience GT-R.

Nissan GT-R Performance
Numbers alone usually don’t provide excitement. The GT-R is an exception. Nissan manages to stuff 545 horsepower and 463 lb.-ft. of torque into a 3.8 liter twin-turbocharged V6. You’ll be able to take GT-R’s 3,800 pound frame from a complete standstill to 60 MPH in around three seconds, courtesy of a dual clutch 6-speed transmission and all-wheel drive setup. Drivers can switch between Normal, R-Mode (for maximized performance), and Save (for long distance treks) modes depending on the circumstances, and paddle shifters provide lightning quick manual gear shifts (good for the track).
Nissan GT-R Fuel Economy
Compared to similar super cars, the MPG numbers of 16/23/19 (city/highway/combined) are a downright bargain. Keep in mind that you’ll be pumping premium fuel through GT-R’s veins.
Nissan GT-R Interior Highlights
Some exotic cars put all their effort under the hood, making for an interior experience reminiscent of a space shuttle launch- a lot of power and switches, and not much else. Thankfully the GT-R isn’t your typical supercar. Nissan provides good comfort and plenty of tech to play with, and everything from launch control to the Gran Turismo (yes, the video game) inspired data center is laid out in an easy to access manner. The 7 inch data/nav screen allows drivers to access a variety of information, from G force measurement to gear efficiency to the all-important lap times. Going for the Black Edition also gets you Recaro racing seats up front.
Backseats aren’t just a novelty, though 26.4 inches of legroom isn’t a great fit for adult legs. The trunk offers a usable 8.8 cubic feet of storage space.
Nissan GT-R Safety
2013 standards include 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, hill start assist, stability control, rearview monitor, and 2-row side curtain airbags. The Nissan/Brembo brakes provide excellent stopping time (sub 100 feet), which, along with an all-wheel drive system, makes for a solid and safe set of shoes.
Nissan GT-R Summary
To simply say that this is the best performance car under $100,000 would be selling it short by quite a bit. Regardless of price, the Nissan GT-R is one of the world’s greatest supercars, and pound for pound will provide the most boom for your buck. The best way to sell this car is to tell you to get behind the wheel and drive it home. Which you are welcome to do via CarWoo!
