In the GT-R's small niche, the driving experience, 0-60 times, and the numbers mean everything.
So does the driving experience itself.
If you consider price, the two rivals, most directly, are the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the Porsche 911 Turbo.
The 911 Turbo beats both in price with its 480-hp turbo flat six and top speed of 200 mph, but not necessarily its speed.
The ZR1's supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 launches it to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, and to a top speed of 205 mph, all for a price about $20,000 higher than the GT-R—with two fewer seats.
Above that, there's not much else but the million-dollar Bugatti Veyron.
