2009 Nissan GT-R - Rear

Gray wheels contrast nicely with the bright paint; dark lower trim takes some of the bulk out of the GT-R's profile. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

Even with a helmet, there's plenty of headroom in the GT-R's tall cabin. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Pits

(Enlarge photo)
This is where all the fun started: pit lane at the Sendai Highland raceway north of Tokyo. Notice the heavy jackets all the technicians are wearing, since it had snowed just a few days earlier. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Engine

This is not some warmed-over VQ from a 350Z. The twin-turbo VR38DETT is hand-built specifically for the GT-R and produces 473 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Interior

(Enlarge photo)
Nothing too fancy here, just basic controls and high-quality materials. Pedals look good, are well-spaced and have grippy, rubber surfaces. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Gauges

(Enlarge photo)
Nothing to complain about with this setup. There's a shift light positioned right near the "7" on the tachometer. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Start Button

(Enlarge photo)
Not quite the novelty it used to be, but the start button front and center makes every firing of the twin-turbo V6 an event. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Dash

These three switches allow you to adjust the aggressive transmission calibration, damper settings and stability control system. Once you hold down the VDC switch for several seconds, it will shut off the stability control entirely. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Information Screen

(Enlarge photo)
Just one of the multiple screens at your disposal. Additional readouts include engine water temperature, transmission oil temperature, transmission oil pressure and front/rear torque split. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

We're not sure how useful these would be when you're driving hard, but it's nice to know they're available if you need them. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Action

(Enlarge photo)
On the rural roads outside Sendai, the GT-R turned heads. If you're used to driving sports cars, the GT-R's stiff-legged suspension won't bother you, but anybody else will find it tiring. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

2009 Nissan GT-R - Brakes

(Enlarge photo)
Six-piston Brembo calipers are used up front, while the rear binders make do with only four-piston calipers. All four corners get 15-inch vented and drilled rotors. Nissan says this is one of the most powerful production brake systems in the world. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

Hood vents can be seen from the driver seat, an old-school muscle car touch we appreciate. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)

Here in the Turn 3 hairpin, we learned that a little extra throttle goes a long way when it comes to getting the GT-R pointed in the right direction. (Photo by Scott Jacobs)
