    Expert Rating

    5.0 (Excellent)
    16 City / 23 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2013 Nissan GT-R OVERVIEW

    The 2013 model year GT-R is a very simple lineup, as it only has a pair of trim levels: Premium and Black Edition. Both trim levels link up to the same driveline, which starts off with Nissan’s hallowed VR38DETT 3.8-liter V-6 engine that has a pair of turbochargers shoving air into the combustion chamber.This engine pumps out 545 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 463 foot-pounds of torque between 3,200 to 5,800 rpm, which is a 15 horsepower and 15 foot-pound increase over the 2012 model year 2012.

    Both trims also boast standard all-wheel drive. The performance levels of the Premium and Black Edition trim levels are pretty much identical, as they have been tested as low as 2.8 seconds to 60 mph. They do, however, differ in appearance, as the Black Edition adds in some extra styling touches to make it stand out a little bit more.

    The Nissan GT-R is essentially a supercar with a four-seat chassis, so finding direct competitors for it is not an easy task. The first competitor to the plate will be the 2013 Ferrari FF, which is set to be released soon and it will be a carryover from the 2012 model year. The FF’s 651-horsepower, 6.3-liter V-12 engine puts it at 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 208 mph all while seating four people. Next up is the 2013 Porsche 911 Turbo, whose 500-horsepower 3.8-liter, six-cylinder engine gets it to 60 mph in 3.4 to 3.5 seconds and its two rear seats allow it to squeeze four people into its cabin. Next up would have to be the Ford Shelby GT500 with its 662-horsepower, 5.8-liter V-8 engine that shoots it to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

    Though the competition is not necessarily extensive for this Japanese supercar, it certainly is stiff, so Nissan had better keep checking its rearview or one of them is bound to pass it up.
