Nissan GT-R NISMO

Nissan GT-R NISMO

The other day we let you know that we would be selecting our Asian Performance Car of the Year (for 2014). The choices were good between the new Mazda MX-5, Nissan GT-R, Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ and Nissan 370Z.

After much deliberation we have chosen the Nissan GT-R as the winner of this accolade. Especially in NISMO form the amount of performance available is incredible and it just begs you to drive it quickly on a track.

It is hard to beat Godzilla and the other Asian cars, while good, just aren’t quite a match for the GT-R. The high performance Nissan will now take on the winner of our European Performance Car of the Year (yet to be announced) and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat (our American Performance Car of the Year). From the winners we will choose our overall Performance Car of the Year.
