One one gtr here in Dallas. Guess nobody wants one....?
Paul Pickard Jan 09, 2013
Pretty sure it's safe to say you're not gonna see to many in Philly.
Patrick Schalk Jan 09, 2013
Haha there's like 4 or 5 in OKC. I still turn my head though. Some dude around me has a ridiculously nice DBS
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 09, 2013
Yea I'm in Cali too, more specifically Stockton, and I've only ever seen like one.
Miguel Jimenez Jan 09, 2013
I've seen three in L.A, one in Frisco, and one in San Jose. They're not that rare in Cali.
MissLaura Anne Jan 09, 2013
This is the ONLY nice Ford made. And of course the GTR would win :)
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 09, 2013
I never see GTRs in my city, and the one that I have seen I'm fairly certain might be the only one in the city.
Brian Johnston Jan 08, 2013
Theres alot of GTRs around chicago.
Walker Carroll Jan 08, 2013
I just saw a white one today. I about turned around, chased him down, and made an offer for it was so gorgeous
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 08, 2013
Gtr is the most affordable supercar I've seen in NYC
Paul Dickey Jan 08, 2013
I live in central PA and gt-rs are not too hard to come by.
Shelby Cassandra Jan 08, 2013
Idk. I see GT-Rs very often compared to most supercars. Except Ferrari. Too many of those around.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 08, 2013
GT-Rs are pretty rare. That's part of it being a supercar
Wmg Chinchilla Jan 08, 2013
GT-R a rare treat? Not in Houston.
Description: Each car has its own devoted group of followers but at the end of the day, there's only one winner. So which is it? The retro tribute to one of the all-time Le Mans greats or the electronic super...

I'd take the GTR, simply because of Clarkson's past experience with the GT, plus i want a supercar I can drive everywhere everyday. Ford does look better tho
Patrick Schalk Jan 09, 2013
I'm actually a robot Shelby so it's cool. Ethiopians are good it my book.
Shelby Cassandra Jan 09, 2013
Hey Sean. That was fucking hilarious. Go back to driving your 2000 Kia and get your douche bag ass the fuck out of my country.
Darren Nardo Jan 09, 2013
Good race. Thought the Gt was really close to the GTR . That surprised me.
Sean Mitchell Jan 09, 2013
Shelby..ahonestly I don't think you even know how to power shift. Stop talking shit and go talk about your " 10 second mustang " to your stove.
Taylor Little Jan 09, 2013
The gtr won this one because it gets up to speed faster, however the top speed of the gtr is also lower. If you doubled the track length the ford would have it. Then again most people don't drag race that long because of the heightened chance of
Taylor Little Jan 09, 2013
Damage to your engine.
Shelby Cassandra Jan 09, 2013
You're right. I am from Ethiopia.
Patrick Schalk Jan 09, 2013
Shelby it's the Internet haha. You could be a 40 year old dude for all we know.
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 09, 2013
I don't know, you might be an imposter who acts like a pretty girl who likes cars lol. Then again I might be one too haha.
Shelby Cassandra Jan 09, 2013
You wonder if I am real? What would I be? A fake person? Robot? Computer? Honestly.
Trent Fiala Jan 09, 2013
@Miguel I don't even know why I did I didn't catch it at first but then I did and even if it was like that it'd be twin charged but guarantee he's lying anyways Haha Still it wouldn't matter cause our copo would rape it anyways
Danny Scott Jan 09, 2013
Why do people argue over cars they don't own?
Miguel Jimenez Jan 09, 2013
"my GT500 is dual twin turbocharged......with that supercharged 5.8L" @Trent why would you even reply to Jonathan's stupid ass comment? I'm surprised nobody caught that.
Tyler Waldeck Jan 09, 2013
How did this happen the gt is my dreamcar andeent way faster than the gtr
Trent Fiala Jan 09, 2013
I only said either of them seven times out of four long messages so okay I don't know what your talking about but that doesn't matter... Gtr is a badass car if take that over the GT and when we got our copo I said I'd rather have a gtr then this
Trent Fiala Jan 09, 2013
@Paul Well you must not text then but who cares that's pointless this is about cars not texting so shhh about jt
Parker McClinton Jan 09, 2013
You just cannot mess with that friggin thing. Best bang for your buck nowadays. #TeamGodzilla
Joel Hope Jan 09, 2013
T had you? No because then the other team would say almost had me? You never had me! You never had your team!
Joel Hope Jan 09, 2013
@shelby you run better drag times in the cold The gtr one don't say oh if it was a mile the gr would've won. If your watching the super bowl and the score is 35-0 and then at the end of fourth it's 35-33 the team still loses. Do they say oh I almos
Elias Harb Jan 09, 2013
Another win for the godzilla
Aaron Crisp Jan 09, 2013
@Paul Haha lol right? Lol haha lol
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 09, 2013
Shelby seems hella bomb.. I wonder if she's real?
Paul Dickey Jan 09, 2013
I've never seen someone right "haha" and "lol" so many times.
Trent Fiala Jan 09, 2013
All there between that and your GT500 you claim you have lol Love to race them against each other then lol Still how it is with the 327 4.0 liter whipple charger it'd smoke the GT500 anyways lol Way better btw ratio then your car... Still no comparison
Trent Fiala Jan 09, 2013
Dual twin turbo...? It's just twin turbo lol Lets see some pics of this Gt500 so you can prove you have it lol Were taking the one engine outta the copo anyways and making a 1500-1700hp around 388ci supercharged lsx for it, not a comparison at
Trent Fiala Jan 09, 2013
That its be illegal sense you can't drive it on the street legally but Ooookay guarantee if we could take it somewhere and see how fast it can too out at and all them other specs that you'd get smoked Haha
Trent Fiala Jan 09, 2013
@Jonathan... Sorry but the copo makes more power and torque then that and is wayyy lighter Haha Try again buddy! First off the Copo is a drag race only car so that other crap wouldn't matter anyways, it'd rape you in the quarter mile, other then
Lou Guerrero Jan 09, 2013
Thanks for the laugh Ted. I owe you one hahaha She outta bring some pepper spray lol
Maaz Khan Jan 09, 2013
Both cars r amazing! I wonder how awesome a modern Ford GT would be.
Patrick Schalk Jan 09, 2013
Haha easy there Ted. Anyways, anyone who says either of these cars are overrated is an idiot. The GT is one of the most iconic cars ever built.
Ted Clay Jan 09, 2013
@Shelby You're fu*king beautiful and you love cars too and you live in Texas and your fu*king BEAUTIFUL. Come back to Texas and I will marry you
Jacob Viiper McCord Jan 09, 2013
@Max GT sucks? please explain. lol. I'm dieing to hear this
Greg Lewis Jan 09, 2013
Gt red lighted, still I'd take the "slower" of the two any day. Ford or fird as Patrick said, really made a top knotch automobile that Americans could be proud of regardless of allegiance.
Johnathan Bender Jan 09, 2013
Trent you wouldn't touch my Shelby GT500......with a dual twin turbo chargers......putting it at 950 Hp and 900 torque .....plus that super charger 5.8 liter. Now there's no comparison..... Top speed of 241mph 0-60 3.67 seconds
Jacob Burford Jan 09, 2013
Ford GT 24/7!
Justin Routh Jan 08, 2013
I love how EVERY TIME Byakka gets called out he doesnt respond
Justin Routh Jan 08, 2013
What else do you have again? I know youve mentioned mustang before but i forget the year/model
Trent Fiala Jan 08, 2013
Our copo Camaro would rape all your asses... Hahah Just though I'd butt in and shush you all, nobody here has a copo, let along with the 327 4.0 liter supercharger Hahah Not even a comparison lol
Shelby Cassandra Jan 08, 2013
@Justin. I can only send you a current picture of my truck and my Taurus since the other two are in storage about 1400 miles away in Texas.
Jesse Weis Jan 08, 2013
@Max YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!!!! actually I agree with you..... it's fat, not all that attractive, and engineered very badly.
Justin Routh Jan 08, 2013
@Shelby not saying you dont but id like to see that you actually own the cars you always talk about
Patrick Schalk Jan 08, 2013
Pretty good race, but gimme that Fird GT! And yes I meant Fird.
Shelby Cassandra Jan 08, 2013
@Michael. I would gladly send a video of a 10 second run IF IT WASN'T WINTER!
Uche Ukaegbu Jan 08, 2013
IF YOU ALL DIDNT SEE THE FORD GT CHEATED..AND STILL LOST..IF YOU LOOK AT THE BEGINNING OF THE RACE THE FORD STARTED WHEN THE STOPLIGHT WAS YELLOW @ 0:27..AND STILL LOST BUT WAS FASTER AT THE END...THANK YOU for your appreciation.
Max Laino Jan 08, 2013
Ford gt sucks. Now it's time to watch the hate roll in. Man this will be entertaining
Dillon Dixon Jan 08, 2013
@david GTR underrated? That has to be the most false statement I've ever seen.
Matt Piccolo Jan 08, 2013
God u kids r dumb....
Thomas Moore Jan 08, 2013
I'd still take the Ford GT any day, it's dead sexy. I respect the performance of the GT-R, I just wish it wasn't so ugly. It looks decent from the back but that's it.
Justin Routh Jan 08, 2013
I'll still take the mans car with the manual that you have to have true skill to drive fast not some awd computer assists to make my car fast. Just my two cents though
Tyler Tarbox Jan 08, 2013
Soooo many ignorant people on this app. Was funny at first but it gets old
Henz Herrero Jan 08, 2013
And 5 more minutes and the lakers wouldve won against the clippers.. Doenst really matter..
Marshall Barr Jan 08, 2013
Or fictional bs and humans. Still apples and oranges lol.
Marshall Barr Jan 08, 2013
@shelby. Lol. Byakka you can not relate dragons and a werewolf to a GT-R and a Ford GT. apples and oranges for the slow ones. Anyways another 15 yards and the Ford would of been ahead till Mexico. AWD and legendary v6 twin turbo. Should be 10's.
Jacob Viiper McCord Jan 08, 2013
On a track, the GT would run circles around the GTR due to AWD being terrible at cornering. Which is why RWD is better overall.
Ryan Patrick Clauson Jan 08, 2013
The GTR is awd so it'd win acceleration, but ford gt is lighter which narrows the gap, only thing is one is better for top speed and then the other is for acceleration
David Guerrero Jan 08, 2013
Fuck the drag race, they're for drag queens. Put them on a shorter circuit style of track. The GT-R is underrated, it is one of the worlds greatest cars for the money.
Henz Herrero Jan 08, 2013
Stop fking whining and enjoy the damn race.. Buy a fking GT and challenge the GTR to a 1mile race.. Just stop crying..
Stephen Ishard Jan 08, 2013
AWD for ya
Jacob Viiper McCord Jan 08, 2013
Also, put these 2 on the mile, GTR would lose terribly.
Jacob Viiper McCord Jan 08, 2013
I'd still take the GT because I want a sexy gorgeous car over a overrated jdm
Michael Lepinay Jan 08, 2013
SO MANY EXCUSES!!! Funny thing is that the GTR is beating your American Fanboys at your own game: a straight line 1/4.
Lou Guerrero Jan 08, 2013
Looked like a good race to me. The GT trapped 131 so it was moving. 1 mile race woulda brought out its advantage.
Eric Michalak Jan 08, 2013
This would be a cool video if it wasn't a drag race between a Nissan and a Ford.
Pablo Herasme Jan 08, 2013
You mean overheat, the braking was fixed 3 years ago
Jimmy Case Jan 08, 2013
That launch control is great. For about 5-10 passes until it breaks.
Nodnarb Ydil Jan 08, 2013
Every race featuring the GTR always lacks information on the GTR. They show it beating a 630hp car but never present the GTRs figures. Not trying to make an excuse for the GT, but awd goes a long way in the quarter
Shelby Cassandra Jan 08, 2013
@Byakka. Learn to Read and Write English you Dumb sexist Pussy bitch. And stop with the poem shit.
Pablo Herasme Jan 08, 2013
Some DR on that GT and it would have made since for that power
David Parenti Jan 08, 2013
Byakka, your name looks like bukkake. Look it up. What's wrong with Shelby being a woman driver? There's just as many stupid idiot men that drive as there are women. I've seen plenty of women that can drive. And plenty of men that can't.
Oren Blumenstein Jan 08, 2013
looks it came down to the gearing since the ford had a higher top speed
Zaire Wilkins Jan 08, 2013
the GT-R needs a better AWD system
Preston Ming Jan 08, 2013
what's everyone gonna do when the GayT-R is put to pasture?! AWD and launch control won that race..pull the hole shot and you're likely to take the race.
Byakka Hirakawa Jan 08, 2013
@shelby U r halious Women drivers, lol its like werewolfs and dragons, lol
Byakka Hirakawa Jan 08, 2013
Love the gtr But this is becomeing to much I kno when i click on a video with a gt-r vs check the hp rating, its gonna win Kinda gets tiersome
Dillon Dixon Jan 08, 2013
Half mile and that GTR wouldn't stand a chance!
Seth Pettman Jan 08, 2013
I didn't think the gt would win but was hoping, either way I'd take a gr hands down over a gtr. Although there both excellent cars!
Michael Lepinay Jan 08, 2013
@Jimmy, excuses, excuses.
Michael Davidson Jan 08, 2013
Then why don't you send car buzz a video of your mustang beating a GTR and GT.
Matt Piccolo Jan 08, 2013
Who woulda thought the gtr would win? :-) wish they had info on the gtr though, "tuned" doesn't really tell us much. For all we know the gtr is barely tuned
Tho MA Jan 08, 2013
Like shannon said add another to a long list that bite the dust
Tho MA Jan 08, 2013
For all those that thought the GT was going to take it "Shoulda Coulda Woulda". Swallow that pride and admit defeat
Paul Dickey Jan 08, 2013
I'd take the GT in a second. Love that car.
Shelby Cassandra Jan 08, 2013
11 seconds? My Mustang would have dusted both of these shitty drivers.
Shannon Sims Jan 08, 2013
Wow.... Another bites the dust. Would luv to own both cars.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 08, 2013
Longer race and the GT would have taken it
Aaron Crisp Jan 08, 2013
GT was pulling on him... It's a GTR though, no surprise here. I would still rather have the GT though.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 08, 2013
Two of the greatest cars ever
Jimmy Case Jan 08, 2013
All comes down to off the line traction. Put some radials on and RE-race. Wayyy different outcome.
Timothy Hooker Jan 08, 2013
wow I was totally thinking the ford would win.....not
Jimmy Case Jan 09, 2013
Yeah at my dealership all we have is auto except the z06's and zr1's. but that's because they sit the 6 speed GS and base we sell.
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 09, 2013
Idk man, when my dad was in the market looking for vettes it was hard as fuck to find a six speed, then again we were looking for used ones. Idk how easy it is with the new ones.
Jimmy Case Jan 09, 2013
You just hit the nail on the head. People by ferraris Porsches lambos etc. to show off money. That's why they make them all auto non drivers cars. Unlike the vette that isn't offered in auto. A true drivers car for a true enthusiast. Not a symbol.
Berke Sönmezışık Jan 09, 2013
Why compare Juke-R with a GT2RS? No point.
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 09, 2013
Vette drivers all look like douchebags to me, with that said I want too be a chauvinistic douche, gimme a vette.
Riley Di Pol Jan 09, 2013
Are u kidding half the people that buy super cars is to show off their money and even to car lover corvettes are still overrated and not impressive cause they all look the same so the answer is yes the answer is yes
Patrick Schalk Jan 09, 2013
And we care what non car lovers think? No. The answer is no.
Riley Di Pol Jan 09, 2013
Vettes are way to overrated and even if u get a zr1 it still doesn't have the wow factor that a ford gt has on a non car lover.
Patrick Schalk Jan 09, 2013
Actually you can see that the Vette is in front of the GTR therefore winning. Your statement is invalid.
Gurjit Singh Jan 09, 2013
fuck vettes.. Gtr ftw
Zaire Wilkins Jan 08, 2013
Lol jack just had to point out the corvette
Jimmy Case Jan 08, 2013
Vette no question. Top performer in quarter mile and track. Such a beautiful machine. And still takes some skill to drive. (Not offered in auto. Haha)
Matt Piccolo Jan 08, 2013
Gtr for me :-) without question
Tyler Tarbox Jan 08, 2013
Three sweet cars right there. Corvette, GT-R, and GT are all amazing
Zaire Wilkins Jan 08, 2013
The GTR is a super coupe.
Zaire Wilkins Jan 08, 2013
Thats because its an exotic
David Guerrero Jan 08, 2013
*my favorite car on the market. But that ford GT looks so much better, more exotic, like how a HyperCar should look like.
David Guerrero Jan 08, 2013
@nawwaf, the GT-R is possibly m
Zaire Wilkins Jan 08, 2013
The GT-R looks better
Pablo Herasme Jan 08, 2013
Notice how the corvette is in front of both
Dylan Bruder Jan 08, 2013
Funny thing is if this is a gt1 car then it has very little to do with an actual gtr
Edgar Jauregui Jan 08, 2013
I think they both look great here, I really loved this picture to finish the article x)
Dillon Dixon Jan 08, 2013
I'm all for opinions but I just can't see how you think the GTR looks better in this pic. It's so much lower and wider. Just so aggressive!
Austin Bride Jan 08, 2013
The GT is so much better looking IMO
Michael Lepinay Jan 08, 2013
@Nawwaf, I love the GTR but I have to disagree. The GT looks amazing here. It is the better looking car.
Paul Dickey Jan 08, 2013
Cool picture.
