'Furious' GT-R NISMO | Cars
The production version of the GT-R debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor show and since then it has taken the world by storm.
What they have produced with the R35 is incredible, almost out of this world. Everything designed to be perfect and harmonious in every way. But let’s not forget, this is no ordinary supercar, this was produced to make cars like the Ferrari 458 look like a Fiat Panda in comparison.
People are quick to speak about the latest Lamborghini, or the hottest Aston, but the GT-R is capable of tying them in knots. Now we even have the hybrid McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Ferrari La Ferrari and surely, you’re thinking, there’s no way in hell that a car with just one motor could possibly keep up with that lot. Hmm. I reckon it could. That’s what people don’t realise about the GT-R. They don’t realise just how good it is.
It’s a car that is built in a hermetically sealed factory and has tyres full of nitrogen because normal air is too unpredictable! It uses an engine that’s built by one man and is mounted out of kilter to the transmission so that when you accelerate and the torque causes it to rock backwards, all is in perfect harmony.
The experience of driving a GT-R is epic and an experience you are likely never to forget!

Really great time driving the Nissan GT-R! It was amazing to drive, very easy changing up and down through the gears, the instructor was great. A really helpful guy who put you at ease and told you everything you needed to know about the car.Ben
£10 a lap on the day, used it before my escort experience. Very quick acceleration and very easy to drive with the paddle shifts. First time driving an automatic but got the hang of it straight away thanks to the very helpful instructor, the only thing is the breifing is just going through all car spec, would be nicer to hear about safety instead of a sales pitch, this didn’t have a negative effect on the day, brilliant experience and will return again for a third dayNathan brickwood
I was meant to drive the GT 500 but it broke down that morning so my girls said drive the furious one, This was the most amazing car to drive I have never driven with paddles before but I loved it so much I had an extra 3 Laps, Barry was such a great instructor, I’m an so in loveColleen
Brilliant Day, will go again!! Great staff who make you feel welcome and have the same enthusiasm you do for cars. They are extremely knowledgeable and the instructors are full qualified race instructors and professional race drivers themselves who are experienced are reading a customer's ability and will encourage you to push yourself and the car when safe and able. The cars are dreams on wheels and if you pick the newer faster cars you will probably drive faster than ever before unless you have previously done track days or race days. I have before but still have never experienced speed like the Nissan GTR and others were giddy after exiting the Toyota supra. The mustang Gt500 was my dream car and it didn't disappoint. While slightly slower than the newest cars and it is restricted at the top end to understandabley protect the car from overzealous drivers I was aloud to drive it like a race car and throw it in to corners, shift gears at will and was left with a feeling of thorough satisfaction at the end of my drive. The Ariel Atom high speed passenger lap left me breathless. Thankfully It feels like they care more about your experience and satisfaction than ultimately protecting the cars as they only restrict the older cars at top end (some to top gear) and aslong as you are safe ish you can really let loose on the straights and on the long curve. You can add extra laps and extra cars and get in car videos and external pictures which you can view at the end but with no obligation to buy. Nice clean relatively inexpensive Burger and tea van on site with good standard selection of burgers, sausage, bacon egg in buns but only mushrooms sold separately for vegetarians. No obvious restrictions on pack lunches or own drinks. Basic portaloos but they were clean and not smelly. The Gt40 is for super enthusiasts only. While being an amasing old car to look at and hear, it is extremely restricted and difficult to drive, so left me underwelmed (others said the same) but I was aloud to drive another car (the Nissan Gtr, OMG) which more than made up for it. I only mention this so others who might not be so lucky to drive multiple cars at other tracks don't pin their hopes on this car alone. You must dream of this car to make it worth picking it to drive. Also the video system is temperamental and I didn't get all of my atom video and most of my gtr drive, but I didn't check properly at the venue thru my own lack of time. Take time to fully check videos before you purchase them. The photos were all good. You will get one very good photo for sure.Adam
