Whether you see the Nissan GT-R as a high-performance sports car, a supercar, or a street-going race car (it fits all of these descriptions, really), this is a car that has only a few rivals anywhere near its price point.
The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is only slightly slower in a straight line, but it offers a Z07 package that adds such performance equipment as carbon ceramic brakes, and the price starts below that of the GT-R.
The current Porsche 911 Turbo S can also accelerate to 60 mph in as little as 2.7 seconds; its ride comfort and drivability are also a bit better.
Pricing for the Porsche is a bit higher, though.
Audi's R8 is another V-10 masterpiece, but it's missing its hallmark cues this time: its sideblades and its marvelous gated manual shifter.
The Acura NSX bristles with hybrid technology and a low-slung shape; it's complex, but drives with a hard-won mechanical fluidity.
