The 2009 Nissan GT-R is powered by a 480-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 430 lb-ft of torque from 3,200 to 5,200 rpm while meeting ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) standards. The VR38 engine is mated with a new paddle-shift GR6 sequential 6-speed dual clutch rear transaxle combined with an electronically-controlled ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system that is rear biased but can vary the torque split from 100 percent rear to 50/50 front/rear depending on speed, lateral acceleration, steering angle, tire slip, road surface and yaw rate. A sophisticated 4-wheel independent suspension system includes a Bilstein DampTronic driver-adjustable shock system with three settings: Normal, Comfort and R. Racing-style Brembo mono-block six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers are combined with 15-inch full-floating cross-drilled two-piece rotors. Lightweight forged 20-inch wheels are shod with either nitrogen-filled Bridgestone high-performance summer run-flat tires or high-performance Dunlop all-season tires.

Release the Beast by Hokie from VA. on 10/24/2009. Trim: 2009 Nissan GT-R Premium Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Useful?
Pros: To truly appreciate this car, you must take it to the track. After several sessions at our local 2.5 mi. road course, the car out performs the Z06, M3, 911S, and Viper. Brakes are incredible, especially for a 3900# vehicle. All wheel drive, with the trans. case and tranny in the rear is the real deal as balance is fantastic. Best performance for the money, hands down.
Cons: Would have liked the option of a manual transmission. Could have had a bit more aggressive sound.
Overall review: I set out to buy a Z06 but after due diligence, this was a smart buy. Engineering masterpiece.
