The Brits from Autocar have decided to see how does the 2012 Nissan GT-R perform in comparison with the all-new 2012 BMW M5.

Both cars are compared against each other in 4 tests that include an acceleration round, a race against time, a braking stage from 100 mph to a complete stop and a stage where the G force is measured while driving inside a corner in 3rd gear, plus the Brits also analyse the feeling the guy behind the steering wheels gets when driving eatch of these cars.
