- 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!
- 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
- ZR1 would rip the little gtr ricer.
- 2009 Nurburgring times
2009 GTR 7:26
2012 zo6 7:22
- american cars sux, as always. sorry fat guys.
- In the real world:
1st the Vette
2nd the Mustang
3rd my hotwheels toy car
4th my lacrosse ball
5th the GTR
- Waiting for all of the butthurts to complain about the GT-R having AWD.
- lets take another look and see why ?
its japanese !! and its much more refined!
- 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.
- 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
- its not evn a zr1 and at top end it still would of beat the gtr
- 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.
- I don't care what people say, I love the sound and potential of the LS7. :D
- GTR beat all american muscle cars !!
- 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.
- 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)
- Sadly this is no longer true though, the corvette and the mustang are still
under 6 figures but the Nissan GTR is now 6 figures
- SHITTTY ASS MUSTANGS HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
- I feel bad for american cars guess I gotta stick with imports
- Cheap V-8. "Chevy with full carbon fiber/full plastic interior Further
reduces weight." Still can't catch up
- Damn you all of you are liars!!
the corvett z06 is complete qutre mile in 11.8 sec yes of course is very
is complet 1/4 in 11.8
but the slr maclren is the very fast than z06 of course the slr is 617 vhp
v8 amg engine not complete 1/4 in 11.8
the slr is very faster
- what are you mucle car fan? hey you fool!! the 2 cars is FUCKIN V8 THE gtr
IS JUST V6 and stil they can not catch up so what else you what ? even you
modified the 2 v8 cars but once they modified the GTR atlest stage 2 ITS
over!!!!!!!!!!!!!! even Bugatti
- Best belive that zo6 was cuming hard a strong
- Love the ignorant hicks on this page. Stop arguing semantics and just deal
with the fact you lost.
- Too much Godzilla for those shitty american cars
