Gtr
 
I know this is a Ram forum, but I also know we are all car guys. So I want to share the experience I had yesterday with my second family. As some of you know, I am a Nissan Sales Consultant. That means we do have access to the other worldy GTR. We had 2 on the showroom floor and we sell 3-4 a year. A man came in saturday and traded in his 13 for a 14. A friend of mine is interested in purchasing a GTR and he really wanted to drive it. So when we took that trade in on saturday I figured now was the perfect time to bring him in for a quick cruise around our auto mall. We have a road inside of our auto mall that is about a 2 mile track. So he comes in and we hop in the GTR and we take a lap or two to warm the beast up. At the third lap we went in the back where we have a straightaway. With him behind the wheel we came to a complete stop. I told him to hold the wheel with two hands and to please not kill me when he punches the gas. So he floors it and we took off into the stratosphere. The transmission in that car shifts in .15 seconds and we hit 100 in like 4 seconds. So we make a couple of laps with him behind the wheel until he tells me he is satisfied. Then I tell him to put it in park and move over because its my turn to drive. So I hop in the drivers seat and I proceed to make a little drag run of my own. Let me tell you guys and gals what, that car made me giggle like a 5 year old girl. It is so idiotically fast and so nasty through the curves it should be illegal. I was taking curves at 70 with absolutely zero wheel spin or lifting the car off the ground. For those that don't know much about the car here are some stats.
0-60 in 2.8 seconds
1/4 mile in 10.8
9th fastest all time lap at the Nurburgring.
The car is 100k and is worth every damn penny.

I'm sure you could straight trade your ram for it. ;)

I'm so jealous. That is insane. The fastest I've driven is a c6 LS2 corvette. 0-60 in 4.1 and it felt like it was going to wheelie.... I can't IMAGINE a second and a half off of that.

ya they are nasty to say the least. My mom's old boss has one and we all meet up for lunch every once in a while and he brings it. So of course the one day I don't go, he let's her drive it. She was stuck in the slow lane on the highway goin 60 and he was raging. He got in later and hit 110 on the on ramp and my mom was freakin out.

He's old as balls too.

But that's so awesome you go to drive. Those things are retarded for how relatively heavy they are

Another story: went into the Nissan dealership lookin for used trucks before I got my ram. And they were havin a price cut all over the lot so each vehicle had two tags on the windshield that said "price was: $$$, Price now: $$$" each vehicle had a legit price on it.

You get to the GTR, stickers said "price was: too much, price now: too much"

Haha! Awesome! I am very jealous of that.

We put the price on the sticker. Other dealers dont so they can charge whatever. When my buddy got in the passenger seat and we came to a stop, he said when you punch it I am going to try to touch the dashboard. So I nailed it and needless to say he couldnt reach out and touch the dashboard. So I dont think it would have been possible to take video without a GoPro or something mounted to the vehicle.

It feels like a top fuel dragster or something. It is insane to say the least.
