Comments - 5 Godzilla-Approve Drag Races

Published: Aug 17, 2012
Description: It's tough to hate on the Nissan GT-R. It only seats four, gets over 20 mpg highway and can rundown almost any supercar on the planet. Yes, it is a true supercar killer and it costs less than nea...

Nissan did something special when they made the Skyline GT-R then brought it to the states, thanks!
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 17, 2012
Long live Godzilla!!!!
Description: This race puts a modified 2009 GT-R against a "stock" Viper ACR. The Viper ACR has the advantage as far as horsepower goes (600hp to 573hp), but the GT-R has all wheel drive. The race is a c...

You stupid ? Their similar in power less than 35 HP difference
Errick Kitchin Aug 18, 2012
Doesn't look like he used launch control and yet he still beat the viper which has a lot more HP
Michael Gallagher Aug 17, 2012
Good stuff. GT-R pounding American muscle
Samuel Bonorden Aug 17, 2012
All wheel drive is way worse
Alex Medvedev Aug 17, 2012
Yeah weak start I agree
Matt Piccolo Aug 17, 2012
Wow looks like the gtr didn't even use launch control
Description: There aren't many details readily available regarding this race. No idea what year the GT-R is or who even won the race for that matter. The biggest question we're left with is how the heck ...

Lada did get off quick but it also jumped the start.
Drew Storrusten Aug 17, 2012
Holy geez!!! Little lada go fast. Hahaa
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 17, 2012
In communist Russia shitty Lada, Godzillas you!!
Tanner Middleton Aug 17, 2012
that was so tight.
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 17, 2012
If you ask me I think Godzilla went got'em!
Redge Diakité Aug 17, 2012
Wow how did the Lada even come on the Strip LOL
Aaron Barker Aug 17, 2012
Wow how did that Lada not fall apart on the launch? Lol
Alex Medvedev Aug 17, 2012
Lol only in Russia. Probably tuned launch control
Jose Carlos Aug 17, 2012
That was fun to watch. To bad the outcome was not shown. Great h2h there.
Matt Piccolo Aug 17, 2012
Holy shit that was a fast launch, who won?
Description: When you race two GT-Rs, everyone is a winner. This video pits the 2012 GT-R against the 2011 GT-R. Carnage ensues as the 2012 GT-R shows just what 45 more horsepower and improved launch control can d...

I would hate to have the 2011 model
Serge Pankratov Aug 17, 2012
45 more horses and improved launch control eh?..... DAMN!!
Timothy Hooker Aug 17, 2012
ha I read that in the two foreigners trying to sound American voice from family guy..
Matt Piccolo Aug 17, 2012
I figured the 2012 would win but that by farther than I expected
Description: The Lexus LFA may carry the bigger price tag, but it doesn't exactly smoke the Nissan GT-R through a quarter mile. This race is close, with the winner finishing only 1/10th of a second faster...

@ abraham it changes physics to its advantage
Timothy Hooker Aug 18, 2012
gt-r is technology in action...all the "purist" will tell u its nit a real drivers car but the numbers don't lie
Ben August Aug 18, 2012
Z06 costs more. Your argument is invalid.
Abraham Mendoza Aug 18, 2012
I don't understand how the GTR is that quick. It weighs more, its taller, had less power than a Z06 but its just faster. I don't understand.
Mario Callirgos Aug 17, 2012
The GTR is faster to 60 for sure but I would prolly take the Z06 anyway. 7.0 V8 RWD and a real manual FTW
Michael Gallagher Aug 17, 2012
Did they even use launch control in this video?
Danny Rodriiguez Aug 17, 2012
The man is right. The vid is old. Look for the 2012 Godzilla vs. the LF-A
Ben August Aug 17, 2012
Pretty sure Nissan made the GT-R to prove that most hi-performance cars are simply overpriced. Even if you hate the GT-R, you can thank Nissan for revealing car manufacturers to be the greedy bastards they are.
Oscar Arias Aug 17, 2012
This is an old video. I believe it when the LFA came out. Also it's the 2010 gtr I believe that's why it lost
Walker Carroll Aug 17, 2012
This was a video done by motortrend. They were testing out the GTR launch control and it beat a MP4
Albert Hamika Aug 17, 2012
I'm surprised they showed this video though. There's a video of the 2012 GTR against the LFA and the GTR completely dominates
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 17, 2012
I thought that GT-R was gonna win but that LFA is something serious!
David Pires-Ihsaan Aug 17, 2012
If you go by that logic any car over this cars price range that doesnt beat it is just a useless show car..
Timothy Hooker Aug 17, 2012
like I've always said...LFA is a price bloated novelty car..man those GTRs are beastly..if only they were sexier
Description: A Bentley Continental Supersports versus a Nissan GT-R is actually more equal of a competition than you would think. The Bentley may weigh a few tons more, but it's also got a beefier engine. Lik...

Damn, that Bentley got off the line quickly!
David Pires-Ihsaan Aug 17, 2012
Want a supersports so bad..
Matthew Crighton Aug 17, 2012
I have to say, I'm not a big fan of its looks but damn can these SOB's preform.
Abraham Mendoza Aug 17, 2012
It's because everyone on this thread has a mutual respect of this car. No one here said "Oh the Vette is better or faster or.." Everyone had something good to say about the car. See people, its that easy.
Matt Piccolo Aug 17, 2012
See y can't everyone get along like this on other articles, all 4 of us would take a diff car but for some odd reason no one is arguing! I like it lol
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 17, 2012
Yep I would take the GT500 but I got no problems with a GT-R (its just my preference)
Matt Piccolo Aug 17, 2012
Id take this over the 911 and especially viper but its all opinion
John Serely Aug 17, 2012
These are really, really growing on me. I have to say, though, I would take a viper or 991 over one of these, but in terms of sheer performance, there's not many better cars for the price
