The 2010 Nissan GT-R—or any of the previous model-year GT-Rs—hasn’t been crash-tested, and it almost seems a blasphemy to even contemplate the tests. Both GT-R versions now come with seat side airbags and roof-mounted curtain bags, and you can shut off the traction and stability control for track-time fun.

“Standard safety features on the 2009 Nissan GT-R include massive Brembo brakes with antilock capability, stability control and traction control,” Edmunds reports, adding “front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags are standard on GT-R Premiums but unavailable on the base model.” Likely, this is to accommodate owners who will only use their cars on the track.

The GT-R comes with a comprehensive stability control system, and it can be shut off for track driving. However, it's unobtrusive, and there's no penalty to keep it on, reports the Los Angeles Times. “You can turn off stability control, but it's plain the car's dynamics have been developed with the system ciphering away in the background. Which is to say, the car's faster around a racetrack with stability control on.”

Conclusion

Plenty of safety equipment comes with the 2010 Nissan GT-R, though there aren't any crash tests to go on.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
