2010 Nissan GT-R

The Good High-tech gear, such as an active suspension, all-wheel drive, and a dual-clutch transmission, give the 2010 Nissan GT-R race car handling. The hard-drive-based navigation system avoids traffic, and the driver can customize gauge screens with a variety of information.

The Bad The ride and noise level are harsh, fuel economy is poor, and there is no iPod support, but the 2011 model promises to address these issues.

The Bottom Line The 2010 Nissan GT-R is an outstanding car for the track or sport driving, but its rough ride makes it tough to live with on a daily basis, and the next model year should see significant improvements.

Exemplifying the use of tech to enhance road performance, the GT-R tops its 3.8-liter engine with twin turbochargers. A dynamic suspension actively counteracts body roll, and power is selectively fed forward and rear by an all-wheel-drive system.
