Damn the GTR is good!

On a scorching summers evening the GTR is a joy to drive and own...went out to put fuel in..came back with half a tank of fuel left!....ordinarily idle cursing the fuel consumption but the thrill f driving this car makes not think twice about the cost of it!!

Awesome cars!!

Wish I could do the same. Got myself a puncture at present

New set of rubber ready to go on though. Just need to find time!

You can't beat an early morning blast at the weekend before anybody else is up (apart from the rest of my street who heard me leave )

On hot days I have a no holds barred approach to driving the car....simply n the basis that with the usual miserable weather I reckon the GTR will spend at least six months of the year parked up in the garage!

I use it as strictly a fair weather car

I hate driving in the rain! And I'm a big girl at heart who's too scared of wrapping it!

Also like to keep the miles low...I know im very sad!

I got caught out in the rain on sunday and was very suprised at the level grip available in the wet it was a blast to drive was driving like a loon as the roads where empty and was great had 2 poop my pants moments. One of them was hitting standing water at about 60mph which caused the car to step out but easily corrected and the other i took off a little hard and the rears light up causing the car to take off sideways and some how the traction control never even kicked in which was a suprise. Even at high speeds the car felt great and i still felt planted and safe to push.
