450bhp Nissan GTR not only crushes the Corvette C6 ZO6 but even the Mighty Bugatti Veyron

If you want to go very fast in a straight line, then only Exotic Supercars like the Bugatti Veyron will get the job done. If you actually want arguably the FASTEST PRODUCTION CAR IN THE WORLD on a
track, then the Nissan GTR is just about the best car out there. This $70,000 car can crush cars that literally cost more than 20 times as much on the track as was demonstrated at a little Track called the Nuerburg Ring.

If people wanted an ICONIC car, then a Porsche Cayman is a FAR better car than a Corvette. It's a way bigger chick magnet too.

This $70,000 car can crush cars that literally cost more than 20 times as much on the track as was demonstrated at a little Track called the Nuerburg Ring.
The GTR was originally produced by the Prince motor car company in Japan which was bought out in the mid 60s by Datsun. It was called the Skyline 2000 GT and was an interesting car. As I recollect it had a 2.0 ltr SOHC engine with two solex carbs and a non synchro five speed -- for racing. I remember going up against those cars in autocrosses in Tokyo with a modified Ford powered Sunbeam Tiger. So much for reminiscence.
