  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. american cars sux, as always. sorry fat guys.
  3. 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) 
  4. lets take another look and see why ? its japanese !! and its much more refined!
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Only reason that mustang lost was because it has shit traction! 
  8. Only if z06 could come in AWD
  9. Mustang sound so nice, I don't care if it's slower
  11. 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. 
  12. I feel bad for american cars guess I gotta stick with imports
  13. Waiting for all of the butthurts to complain about the GT-R having AWD.
  14. Just look at them in comparison at the line.. The Mustang looks so big and out of place compared especially to the vetted which is smaller, lower, lighter. Vette and get closer to a super car proportions
  15. Drag Race! 2012 Nissan GT-R vs 2011 Chevy Corvette Z06 vs 2011 Shelby GT500
  16. and i know that the shelby was going to lose becase it has a 2 wheel drive and the gt-r and the corvette have 4-wheel drive
  17. I love most sporty cars, for some reason or another, no matter where they are from. but when it comes to performance to price , the GTR is the best purchase IMO. And AWD can be driven anywhere anytime. You dont see many mustangs or vettes out during the winter, or even when its raining for that matter! bad engineering. you get what you pay for! =D
  18. Mustang is the best value out of them. The vette is the worst. You can never go wrong with a gtr
  19. Just something I seen.
  20. oops i thought they were talking about a diffrent corvette that corvette has rear -wheel drive just like the shelby but if you put the gtr wheel's on a shelby that car whould be the champ/the beast
  21. Top mustang can't even touch a zo6 lol almost got the gtr tho
  22. the gt-r has stickey tires but not faster than the corvette or the Shelby. the Nissan gt-r has a top speed of 197 mph and the corvette has a top speed of about 208 mph and the Shelby has a speed of 202 mph all though the corvette and the Shelby don't have 0-60 time like the gt-r and that's why the Nissan gt-r won the race
  23. Lol, GTR needs AWD and twin turbos to just barely beat an old ass pushrod v8..silly Imports, the only way to make your shitboxes fast is to put an LSX in them
  24. why did the gtr win? fast automatic transmission + all wheel drive + quarter mile
