They asked if I would like to go to Japan to drive the 2015 Nissan GT-R. They said I would get to drive the new NISMO edition on a race track. What could I say beyond, “Ummm, of course I will go! The bosses at Nissan believed that the GT-R wasn’t R enough, so the development of a new NISMO version began. The result is a 600 horsepower monster that is more race car than it is a road car. Of course it is a road car, but the newest version of Godzilla is also the most vicious. I had exactly four laps including a warm up and cool down lap to experience the beast, just enough to know that it is more car than I am used to and that I NEED to have a full day of lapping to fully explore its capabilities!
