Nissan GT-R is Hit!

nissan gt r is hit

With the buff books claiming the Nissan GT-R does runs of 0 – 60 in only 12 parsecs (yes, I know a parsec is a measurement of distance, Han Solo) and over 470 horsepower on tap, it was only a matter of time until someone made their GT-R look like it went through a blender.. A member of the forums at Drift.Com.My, a Malaysian drifting community website, just posted a gallery of shots of a pile of metal that used to be called a GT-R. Posters there are saying the car appears to be from Singapore, although wherever it's from, it's hardly a car anymore. Just because you can afford it, doesn't mean you have enough brains to drive it responsibly. I'm not saying such a powerful beast should be illegal, just that its drivers should have to be chemically castrated and wear ankle GPS bracelets at all times and give up their search and seizure protections. In any case, here are the pictures of the wreckage [thanks to Autoblog for the tip]

    Looks like a simple case of having more money than brains.

    Anyone buying a used GT-R would be wise to invest in a paint meter!

    I have a theory.. From the reviews I've read, the GT-R practically drives itself. Nissan practially yelled the fact that the GT-R was brought to America because of the great "video game interest" (take that as you will). With this in mind, I conclude that Nissan developed the GT-R to be as "safe" of a superfastmegacar as possible (yes, oxymoron.. continuing). The proof? Read above. What worries me is that people out there might actually THINK that their super-expensive sports cars can take a 90-degree turn going 120mph, and that bumping into a building will only give your car scratches, and that jumping over half-drawn bridges & 200mph without completely destroying your car on impact is possible. And I'm only 22.. sometimes I dread witnessing what idiots have to offer public roads 30 years from now...

    Hey guys, I'm from Singapore, and heard about this from local car forums. Singapore has very strict speed limits, maximum of 90kmh. That's why many of us go to Malaysia to test the performance of our cars. Their highway speed limit is 110kmh, but the fines can be, ahem, negotiated. GT-R is not officially sold here yet, this is a parallel import from Japan. FYI, it costs over USD210,000 here. :)
