GT-R is not easy to drive? Well, I own a R33 GT-R and I must say that that's not true! I drive it to work 3 times a week ( would love to drive it every day but the "other" car needs driving as well!) and I have no problem at all. The car does 40 kph in 4th quite happily. The twin plate clutch can be a bit heavy. The suspension( I use HKS hiper damper with Eibach springs) is a bit hard but reasonably comfortable ( you cannot expect Lexus like comfort though!). Of course the NSX behaves better in the city. But the GT-R is pure adrinalin to drive. At the track, the NSX does not even come to mind. It's GT-R,GT-R and GT-r for me.

Thumbs up

yes, NO CAR can beat the GT-R on the track.
Just look at the Nurburgring world record!

Koenig, that's who. They did it to...of all things...an F-50! That takes some balls.

This is a tough call. I suppose it would depend on what it would be used for.
Daily driver: NSX
Racing intent: Skyline for it's AWD

Remember, it's not like you can force feed the NSX!

I would have to also say I'd take the Skyline, I've been in awe of the Skyline ever since I first saw one, and the potential of the car is stunning too - as is the rear wheel biased AWD. Only car that gets to me more is the 911 turbo, which isn't much different!

The NSX is more dreamy but the GT-R is more complete. I say Skyline. I6TT + AWD= nice idea.

Although... a track like the 'Ring is probably an extreame example of it's (GT-R) greatness. Those turns aren't daily drivin' turns. Those twisties probably put all of the GT-Rs electronics to a test.

On the drag strip, the GT-R isn't terribly impressive, but that's not what it was created for so I'll let it slide, even though it's a performance car.

The 'Ring is suited for cars like the GT-R. If you put a stock R34 GT-R V-Spec2 on Laguna Seca along with a closly priced (R32-R34 prices in America), and more powerful (thanks to no 276bhp 'limit') car like the 911 4S, F355, ZO6, E46 M3, they would give it great competition. A few of thoughs will get faster times. The ZO6 alone will kill it.

But the car is known to overcome great odds....

Attention all of ya!!!

All of you could choose whateva ya want, but until you've driven both of them, don't compare. I, personally, have driven both of them quite long enough to judge or make a good decision about their driving qualities. As for driving qualities, the R34 definitely has a much more aggressive stance, and it's a monster of speed right from the launch--massive torque pull. The NSX is a little more subtle but very quick as well. It requires a better launch to get the same performance as the R34, and has to rev much more (kinda like the S2000, but much more torque pull of course). In performance, I'd go with the Skyline GTR34.
However, if I could get one of these for free, I'd definitely go with the 2002 NSX-T because it performs extraordinarily, but MORE IMPORTANTLY, it's so easy to live with and drive everyday. Besides, the '02 models get a few cosmetic changes that make them look so much better.
A buddy of mine has a '99 NSX-T with a Comptech supercharger and fully loaded with everything else (DVD, $8000 20" rims, and more). Oh how envious am I of his car.
Another buddy of mine has a '00 GTR34 in white imported directly from Japan, even with the right-hand steering wheel. It's the attention getter. A very beautiful car!!! He gets picked on by the cops all the times, because the cops weren't sure if his Skyline is legal to drive or not. That poor sonofabitch! I'd take his place.
Well, I'd pick the NSX to live with everyday, but the Skyline to get more attention (mainly because the driver sits on the opposite side, and gets to be closer to other drivers in other cars.) And it's very rare in the U.S.

How fast have you driven the GT-R. What was done to it?

i'd pick the GT-R hands down. even though i will never drive either car. but i love that in face look of the R34 v-spec II. the NSX looks beautiful as well, but in a different look. it lacks the muscular look and stance that the GT-R has. the GT-R is like the true japanese muscle car. its handling is also top class, and one of the best in teh world. the only thing thats stoping it from beating super cars would be its 320hp. but that can easily be changed with a few inexpensive mods. then afterwards, it will become a true super car slayer.

I only drove it fast on the freeway to test it out. The owner wouldn't let me take it to the track; he didn't want too many mileage put on the car. With my foot floor on the gas at 65mph, the R34 surged forward like a bullet and screamed like someone was raping it. In a very very short time, I was approaching close to 150mph, but had to slow down right away. The owner sitting next to me was freaking out. It was very late at night by the way, so I wasn't endangering other drivers because no cars were in sight at that part. I also drove it in the cities many many times, really awesome to drive. The 4WD stuck to the road like glue. The NSX was really fun to drive as well. Too bad I don't get to drive them everyday.

well if your in america. the skyline and nsx are almost the same price. so its not much of a big deal
if your in other parts of the world. like asia the skyline is far more cheaper.
on the track the nsx has better handling and acceleration compared to the skyline.
braking the skyline is better.
comfort...both are the same. but the nsx gives you better view.
its really up to your decision. do you like na or turbo car? mr or 4wd car?
if its styling i would go for the nsx.
but i would go for the skyline if i want to tune it
