LOL. Why does the media keep doing these comparisons? Performance/$, the GT-R will always be at the top and that's all it's good for. What point are they trying to prove? No matter what car you throw at the GT-R, it will always perform better for cheaper? Yeah, we know that.

What a strange comparison.

Maybe they can compare an M3 to a London Bus next.

Idiots.

I wonder what the results would be if the metric was this:

"How much does your date / wife enjoy sitting in the passenger seat?"

Stupid comparison but how are they only getting 4.3 seconds 0-62 with that much power?? Doesn't a stock 650 do it in 4.2???

No one's ego is hurt. Everyone in this thread agrees that the GT-R would embarrass most cars in it's price range and higher. The simple fact is one car's (GT-R) main focus and priority is track/performance while the other is a balance of power and comfort/luxury so it's a no brainer which one would lap faster...

The GTR is still king...?!
Then I'd say the B6 is Ace
I wouldn't have a gtr in a million years, its just a cheap plastic car in a fast disguise..
Good for on the track, but be honest, you wouldn't wanna drive it everyday would you?

It's like Nissan secretly sponsors these Moronic comparisons.

Like comparing a Kia Sorento to a Focus ST.

Because there are people in the world who will never be remotely likely to buy either, yet they are curious, even in only in an academic sense, and the magazine has to sell copy.
