The Nissan GT-R is an already stunningly amazing, awesomely fantastic machine but that hasn’t stopped engineers from cranking things up. The 2015 NISMO verson packs a 600-horsepower wallop along with 481 lb-ft of torque. Other enhancements include retuned springs and custom-developed Bilstein dampers. It also rides on exclusive Dunlop tires that grip the road like a bear’s claws digging into the torso of a small child. The body shell is also more rigid. Proving its performance prowess the GT-R NISMO just circled Germany’s legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven minutes and nine seconds.

    The “bear claw…..” comment under the GT-R Nismo heading must certainly be one on the most ignorant things ever printed in moto-journalism. It is beyond me to believe that the writer could not come up with a better educated analogy than that.

    LOL. I thought it was helarious.

  • T.J.

    Why are you angry? It wasn’t meant to be taken seriously, the editor threw in a perfect reference. I now understand that the grip is insane, while getting a little chuckle in the prosess. Lighten up car fans can be so testy some times.
