Expert Quotes:

However, esoteric displays such as graphs showing brake-and-accelerator-pedal movements would be useful to those who in-car-video their lapping sessions.
Car and Driver

The GT-R also features a trick multifunction performance monitor that offers 11 different informational displays.

There's even a big stop watch on the screen controlled by a button on the steering wheel.

The GT-R features a leather-adorned cabin for four, PlayStation-inspired multifunction display, nav system, Bose audio, heated seats, and Bluetooth.

Two of the car's most highly touted features baffle me, though. One is the endlessly configurable instrument display, called-up via the nav screen.
The Truth About Cars

Keeping in mind that the 2013 Nissan GT-R is first and foremost a high-performance vehicle, and not necessarily a luxury coupe, it's quite well stocked with comfort features and gadgets.

There are two models offered for 2013: the GT-R Premium and the Black Edition. Black paint and black-tipped RAYS 20-inch wheels, plus a carbon-fiber spoiler are what distinguish the Black Edition on the outside, along with red-and-black Recaro seats and dark interior trim.

Leather seats are included in all models, though; so is a hard-drive-based navigation system with stealth-fighter-style 3D flyover mapping, and an 11-speaker Bose sound system with a USB port. Bluetooth phone connectivity and streaming audio are also part of the system.

The GT-R's videogame-style performance gauges are pretty much a feature in themselves. Tap the screen, and the GT-R reveals a set of digital gauges that let drivers record how they're performing, whether it's grip, acceleration, or elapsed times. It's customizable, too, and Nissan even hired designers who worked on Sony's Gran Turismo game to help render the interface. If it sounds gimmicky, it's not--it's an apt piece of tech for a car so Corvette-fryingly capable.

The only option otherwise on the 2013 GT-R is a Cold Weather Package, which wraps a special coolant mix with Dunlop all-season tires.

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.
