Few of you asked about an update, so here it is. I finally get a chance to track the car. Ran a best of 11.3@120 with no launch control and just a 93octane tune. I'll start modding soon... e85 and supporting mods should net low 10s.

Love this car soooooo much more than the ZL1. Much more of what I was looking for.

Forgot those...

First picked her up


Few easy mods (tint and matte black wheels)


Color is kind of odd. It's called Titanium Gray. Less than 120 made. It sort of changes from a gray to a bronze color.

Hmm. I actually agree that a manual GTR would be a nice option, but have you ever driven a GTR? The tranny isn't like any auto I've ever been in. Very "raw" feel to it. Hard to explain, but you should give it a shot if you get a chance

Thanks. I did a TON of searching before I found one. It's so much better than the typical colors you see all the time (black, silver and blue). Titanium is also rumored to be the fastest color

Very nice car and yes they are wicked fast. Most important thing is that the owner has that absolute joy feeling every time they get in their car and it sounds like the GTR does this for you. Doesn't really matter what a persons drives as long as they love it. We'll be looking for some action shots/videos from your track days.

Thanks, man. I seriously stop and look back every single time I park it. I think owners who look back at their ride after parking absolutely made the right purchase be it a GTR or a Kia.

I have a GoPro that I'll stick on at my next few runs. I'm also planning to get a "surprise" launch control of the wife in the near future. She hasn't experienced that yet and something about a sub 3 second launch makes people smile or scream

I just went to the local Nissan dealer to check out their GTR's. I would love to get one but too much $$. They have six on the show room floor.

Lol. My ZL1 was a bolt action. I just get tired of rowing gears and am actually happy the GTR is something in between a manual and an auto. I just like "fast", and because of technology, fast is now auto (especially DCT cars). Nobody is out shifting my computer....

That's a black edition '14 in the front and a beautiful white '15 behind it. Can't see the others. Yes, new, they are a little ridiculous on price. I go through cars entirely too often to justify buying something that new and taking a huge hit. I'd rather someone else take the loss
