Expert Quotes:

In brake testing, we've recorded a best 60-0 mph stopping distance of 98 feet, a very short distance indeed.

Just as with nearly any other low-production, high-price supercar, there are no actual crash-test ratings for the 2013 Nissan GT-R.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have smashed a GT-R, thankfully, but that leaves us all to wonder about the GT-R's safety.

Feature-wise, you'll find side airbags and curtain airbags, while all-wheel drive and stability control will help guard against any temptation from the GT-R's massive output. While you'd be foolish to turn these systems off on the street, these highly evolved traction and stability controls can be deactivated out on the track.

A RearView Monitor is now standard on all models--which is a good thing, as in past models we've found that the GT-R's thick rear pillars can get in the way of outward visibility.

Conclusion

There are still no crash tests to go on in judging the GT-R's safety; but it's no slouch in features.

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.
