Here is a comparison test that will most likely become the basis of a few arguments.
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.
They are not quite competing in the same league mainly because the M5 is a saloon so it weights more than the GT-R, but they do however share many other similarities.
So before you hit the play button here are some details in reference to each model.
The 2012 is priced from 74,450 GBP, develops 542 bhp and 466 lb-ft of torque and is capable of rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and reaching a top speed of 199 mph. Its kerb weight is 1734 Kg.
The 2012 BMW M5 on the other hand costs from 73,040 GBP, and its 4.4-litre V8 develops 552 bhp and 502 lb-ft of torque. The 0 to 60 mph and top speed figures for the new M5 are 4.4 seconds and 155 mph while in terms of mass, the car weights 1,945 Kg.
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.
Follow the jump and see their conclusion and final score.
