  1. I'm seeing a lot of ignorant comments on this video... I whole lot of them... It's sad you guys can't appreciate all three of these cars, because you think the car you like the most defines you in some way, and if anyone insults it? They're insulting you... A real petrol head will give merit to all these cars. I'm not the biggest fan of the GT-R, and I hate its fanbase as much as Adolf Hitler hated the Jews. But I'm not going to try and take away its iconic legacy it's made for itself. Same goes for the Z06, and GT500! It's okay to have preference! One man likes ass, another likes titties. Some like Chips Ahoy, some like Oreos. But at the end of the damned day, they all get the job *DONE* in the same way! So take your ignorant fanboy comments, and do a self prostate exam with them! I speak for every *REAL* car enthusiast world wide! Because trust me! They're all thinking the same thing too! Either appreciate great cars! Or shut the fuck up, and get the *FUCK* out!
  2. Let's be realistic. Who da fuk races red light to red light anyway ? Most races are at highway speeds. And the ZO6 destroys the GayTR on the highway. Just a fact. Deal with you foreign cock suckers. Don't come crying to Americans to fight your war for you next time you're attacked faggot's
  3. In the real world: 1st the Vette 2nd the Mustang 3rd my hotwheels toy car 4th my lacrosse ball 5th the GTR
  4. Gtr's for fags, put a z06 up against a gtr. Throw that shit out and put that zr1 on there, nissan must pay these places a shitload to not include the Zr1!!!!
  5. Waiting for all of the butthurts to complain about the GT-R having AWD.
  6. Mustang is the best value out of them. The vette is the worst. You can never go wrong with a gtr
  7. ZR1 would rip the little gtr ricer. 
  8. Wow you guys are the most ignorant fools thinking that American cars suck and imports are the fastest cars in the world well guess what your wrong...... American coupe pony cars such as camaros mustangs and challengers may be heavy but do have aerodynamics and are faster than a Honda civic, evo, or any other car.... Way faster yeah sure the gtr is fast but that's because it's awd and without it it would be slow maybe reach 0-60 in 4 seconds or less and just to finish it all the very fast Hennessey venom gt is an American car and is the second fastest car now...... I do not see an import topping 271 mph MURICA!!!!! (BTW feel free to correct me because I do not know that much of cars but know something) 
  9. Can't wait for the R36 GTR. 600hp, 250+ pounds lighter, 0-60 in probably 2.3-2.5 seconds. Top speed probably 220mph. 
  10. MT can do nothing in a drag race between GTR and Z06 LOL 
  11. american cars sux, as always. sorry fat guys.
  12. real races arn't from stop to go. there always moving. this test doesn't prove nothing. put them on the trac already for a real result 
  13. 2009 Nurburgring times 2009 GTR 7:26 2012 zo6 7:22
  14. i heard it beat the supersnake? but i dont really know. anyone know for sure?
  15. I think the corvette would beat the gtr in a 30 roll most days of the week. They are all nice cars and I like them all but the gt500 is the one I could live with the most driving on the street and for half the price of a gtr and with a reflash and more tuning would make a gtr driver shiver with his 300 dollar sports glasses any day.
  16. lets take another look and see why ? its japanese !! and its much more refined!
  17. What's that GTR cheaper than the Z06? But still wins Superior engineering bitches
  18. Man that GT500 was cool. Weren't the Super Snakes supposed to have a crap load of power? Corvette was cool too I have a lot of respect for them since I actually was able to ride in one and its kinda scary when the driver floors it and you get slammed into thr back of your seat. However that Nissan does impress me a lot. V8's are awesome but its very impressive what those engineers can do with the smaller engines. Don't hate me though haha I like imports AND muscle but maybe next time they should put a bright shiny Viper in there as well.
  19. god damn GT-R's are so fast
  20. its not evn a zr1 and at top end it still would of beat the gtr
  21. Hellcat 700 hp 275 skinny tires no good A lot hp for those rear tires.... the vette z06 505 hp but the Wide 325 rear tires and the weight make the car faster. 
  22. Love the ignorant hicks on this page. Stop arguing semantics and just deal with the fact you lost.
  24. If the GTR was the fastest car in the world and beat everything else (IRL, that's not unrealistic lol) people would still find numerous reasons to hate it and defend their favorite loser car. It always happens every time a GTR races something. Why is it that hard to just accept that Nissan put a lot of effort into the GTR and made an engineering marvel? I understand, we all have our favorite cars. The mustang and corvette aren't bad cars, and I also like them along with the GTR. However, making lame excuses like "The mustang is still is cooler" isn't helping your argument and just makes you sound ignorant. Oh, and by the way for my fellow Americans, just because a car is domestically made does NOT make you patriotic or a better person because you drive/love it. Imports aren't evil, and I have personally seen astonishingly better quality out of them. 
  25. Id still take the Z06 or the GT500 over the GTR anyday. Takes more skill to drive the Z06 and GT500, and its more fun.
