Auto Trader verdict:
The upstart Nissan GT-R has finally grown up. But don’t worry, it’s not quite ready for its pipe and slippers just yet. While it’s a more rounded performer in almost every respect now, as a consequence, it has lost some of the raw race quality that its legend was founded on. Toning down that edginess in favour of a more comfortable ride, enhanced refinement and significantly improved interior quality may not sit well with purists, but there’s no doubting the changes have transformed the GT-R into a more coherent everyday supercar. Make no mistake though, more cultured it may be, but the GT-R remains a hooligan at heart, retaining a level of blistering performance and handling that singles it out as a point-to-point weapon the equal of anything currently on sale in the UK today.
