The Car Connection's Take

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Nissan GT-R is a racing video game for the road with twin-turbo power, immense grip, and everyday usability. As much a track star as it is a comfortable daily driver, the 2018 Audi R8 is one of the most balanced and flexible supercars ever made.
