I have seen many. They definitely aren't selling for looks. The GTR is in the same styling league as the current camaro imo. They do launch wonderfully though.

list sucks. missing the record Zonda R lap at 6:47.

Also, the GT-R you mention is with 550 hp, in the number ten spot. Look down the list till you find the 460hp version. Much closer in speed to what the M3/4 may be.


If i recall the 2012 GT-R makes 530hp. So maybe thats the 2012 Spec-V with 550?


basically no matter what the GT-R is a BOAT. Im just not a fan of it. Yes its a fun car and would i turn one down, probably not. But I wouldn't take it over the driving experience a M car has along with the interior materials BMW has stepped their game up with.

The M is just a much better place to be while driving.

0-60 in under 3 seconds and corners faster than any other road car ever made(im not suggesting every type of corner). and for all under 100 grand, i wouldnt expect them to

doesnt matter. it has 4 wheels and a motor. still holds the record, and for instance, the two radicals at the top of the list are just as much road cars as the Zonda R is......and the 2013 has 545. the 2012 had 530. So I still dont know where they got that 550 figure.

How can you call the GT-R a boat when it beat the Aventador that is much more powerful and weighs 16 kg less?

the zonda r isnt a road car, thats not debatable. have you ever seen the video for it? i think they have a top gear episode for it. the numbers it puts down for braking and other stats is insanely impressive. hp numbers vary but thats only because the gt-r is the only car that gets better every year.

r32, r33, r34, then r35. Look at that size difference. Id take any of the first three any day. But the r35 is a Boat comparatively.

I'd love, love, love to own an R33 or even an R34. If somebody gave me an R35, I'd sell it!
