David Gandy Drives: Nissan GTR

Nissan GTR GQ 7 Mar12The top model reviews the top models

Male supermodel and GQ.com Car Correspondent David Gandy spends four white-knuckled days with the buttock-clenchingly fast Nissan GTR.

Friday 
So this is it. I finally get my hands on a Nissan GTR. This really has been at the top of my list for a while. Since this version was launched in Japan 2007 and finally Europe in 2009, it has demolished the competition and changed people's perception of not just what Nissan can do with a car but what a sports car could be capable of full stop - or rather, exclamation mark.

I love the look of the GTR. Yes, friends of mine laughed and described it as a "boy racer's car", which only proves one thing: I've got to get new friends. I personally think it's a handsome beast. Yes, it has huge 20-inch wheels and tyres filled with nitrogen, full under-body covering, large air intakes and ever larger spoilers. But what mere mortals don't know is that they are all here for one reason: supercar-beating speed.

The interior, as one of my friends put it while sitting in Friday night London traffic heading to Wembley, "is no Mercedes" (remind me to replace him also), but everything is there: satnav, heated electric sports seats, iPod connectivity and even a decent boot and seats in the back (later used for two more friends heading back into London). So is this a family car then? Well yes, It can carry kids, but think about it more than twice - do you enjoy the smell of vomit?
