Published: Dec 25, 2012
Description: The Vette is one of the few cars that can handle serious horsepower at the crank, which is why they're so popular with tuning firms that specialize in performance upgrades. But the GT-R is also c...

Wider? I've seen cars with 10.5 inch tires do 200mph in 4 seconds..... They make close to 3000hp. Look them up, 10.5 outlaw. They will embarress ANY gtr.
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
Yes, maybe a little wider, but they are pretty wide stock. Just not wide enough for 2,000 horses.
Blaise Harned Dec 25, 2012
For the articles name page you can see the corvette. I think with 2k horse they should put some wider tires on it ;)
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
Just to let you guys know, this is a Z06. I noticed you put the base coupe on the last page instead, but this is in fact a Z06.
Description: We're unfortunately in the dark about the Nissan GT-R. From the result of the very tight race, it's clear the Japanese supercar killer must have been putting out at least four figures, other...

All your information is wrong. The corvette won this whole event. It did not lose to this GTR or any other car there. This car DOES NOT have 2000 hp. It has around 1600 with the six speed and around 1400 with the power glide. This car also has a shot of nitrous. The GTR has around 1500 hp as well.
Shannon Sims Dec 26, 2012
I'm speechless.
Zeus Mocha Dec 26, 2012
Stock? Haha anyways hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.
Serge Pankratov Dec 25, 2012
That GTR was no where close to stock. No matter how u put it, a car with 2000 hp with shitty tires will outrun a 650hp car anyday in a straight line. But wither way, that was a sweet race with 2 of my fav cars :) finally
William Downs Dec 25, 2012
That gtr was far from stock
Trent Griffin Dec 25, 2012
So the Vette gotta have 600hp more, racing wheels , parachute etc... To barely best a stock looking GT -R? Outstanding Nissan!
Mike Puno Dec 25, 2012
@Colby don't forget "and a Happy New Year" C'mon man. Complete it!!!!
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
And I was also supplying some background info for the race. Ok, so the Corvette lost by .100 of a second. Definitely a driver's race, the Corvette itself is nearly unbeatable in the right circumstances with the right driver. Merry Christmas.
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
It's not glorifying if Im just telling the truth but thanks anyways. I know what they are capable of and others have no clue, they need to be educated sometimes. And also over 70% of Vette drivers can't get the most out of their cars.
Pablo Herasme Dec 25, 2012
Ok lets not get into a war, its holiday season; enjoy and relax
Mike Puno Dec 25, 2012
In any case, Happy Holidays people. Love thy cars equally!
Lou Guerrero Dec 25, 2012
Big horsepower in Texas.
Mike Puno Dec 25, 2012
@Bruder not hating on the Vette, just Colby's compulsive need of over glorifying the car. ON. EVERY. SINGLE. GM. ARTICLE.
Mike Puno Dec 25, 2012
@Bruder It's only for this race.
Dylan Bruder Dec 25, 2012
@matt no figures were givien for this race on the gtr were left in the unknown for it the AMS they were talking about in the beginning was just to reference that they can hold big power I thought they meant it was that car at first too
Dylan Bruder Dec 25, 2012
@mike I believe the vette won it had a higher trap speed going through its hard to tell at the angle though odd race
Mike Puno Dec 25, 2012
@Colby no matter how much you want to Monday morning quarterback it, the Corvette STILL LOST. Get over it. I don't like the GTR much, but kid, relax on the Corvette trolling.
Antonio Falsetti Dec 25, 2012
Lmao plastic fantastic.
Matt Piccolo Dec 25, 2012
Gtr did pretty damn good considering it didn't have near the same power!
Ernest Grace Dec 25, 2012
GT-R!
Timothy Hooker Dec 25, 2012
I would settle for a GTR keychain.
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
The Corvette was the fastest car at the competition and the GTR was the closest in performance, thus explaining why they were paired. Close race though, it came down to inches. Both are fantastic cars. I'm impressed that the GTR did that well.
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
I have some more info on this race: Right before the green flag, the Corvette gave the GTR a slight jump because of the horsepower difference. It was only fair. Watch and you will notice that the GTR accelerates first.
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
This came down to a driver race. It could've gone either way. But that Corvette is definitely the faster car.
Matt Piccolo Dec 25, 2012
Damn, thats not a bad present
Ben Norton Dec 25, 2012
You got an actual skyline for Christmas? I got clothes and a camera bag.
Stefan Shand Dec 25, 2012
I just got an gtr r33 for my christmas present :) merry christmas guys
Aaron Crisp Dec 25, 2012
Merry Christmas guys!!!
Jimmy Case Dec 25, 2012
That GTR is modded too unknown. The stock zr1 smokes the GTR.
Ryan Patrick Clauson Dec 25, 2012
The thing is with all that power an torque you can barely get traction. The corvette was on the high way and barely got on the throttle and smoked the tires in another video The GTR is just unstoppable though, it's power band and traction is the best
Zeus Mocha Dec 25, 2012
Two of my favorites. Wish there were more specs but nice race overall though.
Nodnarb Ydil Dec 25, 2012
That wasn't much of a drag race
Josh Andrews Dec 25, 2012
Even with 2000hp the GTR is still unbeatable
Simeon Prasad Jan 13, 2013
Love this car! Lamobos, ferraris etc might look more beastly but the fact that this can kill all those make it unique. IMO this looks perfect
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Dec 26, 2012
I'll be the third one. I don't find anything appealing about the GTR!
Zaire Wilkins Dec 25, 2012
then it must be both you
Kyle McCullough Dec 25, 2012
No it's not just him.
Pablo Herasme Dec 25, 2012
Well thats just you
Wyatt Gordon Dec 25, 2012
Pablo, it looks ugly and bloated from any angle
Pablo Herasme Dec 25, 2012
That has to be like the worst camera angle. Makes the car look massive and bloated
Zaire Wilkins Dec 25, 2012
i hope the R36 look good as this or better
Matt Piccolo Dec 25, 2012
Beautiful
Jacob Lerklint Dec 25, 2012
Mine too
Zaire Wilkins Dec 25, 2012
my all wheel drive dream
Zaire Wilkins Dec 25, 2012
who dosent have more than one hole these days
Timothy Hooker Dec 25, 2012
women three holes...gtr four holes...therefore GTR>women
Freddie Ibarra Dec 25, 2012
Beast!
Matt Piccolo Dec 25, 2012
Dat ass!!! 😛
Simeon Prasad Jan 13, 2013
Id take the gtr over this plastic shit. Great car, but still has an ugly american interior
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Dec 26, 2012
Such an amazing car!
David Gray Dec 26, 2012
Hahaha only in America would you hear a GTR referred to as a "stupid Datsun" ignorant twat
Serge Pankratov Dec 25, 2012
@wyatt - That "stupid Datsun" smokes whatever u glorify. And im sure ur car is one of em. Just sayin..
Wyatt Gordon Dec 25, 2012
At least its better than that stupid Datsun
Pablo Herasme Dec 25, 2012
I like everything except those chrome wheels
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
Gorgeouss... I want one so badly. One day....

Craig Lafey Dec 26, 2012
Love of my life right there
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Dec 26, 2012
Love the Corvette rear!
Dylan Bruder Dec 25, 2012
Great angle
Colby Church Dec 25, 2012
That's what I'm talking about! :) Such meaty, fat tires. It takes a lot to put all that power down.
Freddie Ibarra Dec 25, 2012
Damn, look at those tires!
