I think he means it's no where close to the status of a Ferrari


exactly bro.
I meant status, history, NAME.

As for speed, the GTR would beat most Ferrari's but not the Enzo and FXX.
Obsiously for the price its a good buy but It does not compare to the Ferrari in general.

Plus its ugly imo

You could get a car with double the power of a Ferrari and cheaper, but it will never be a Ferrari. Its a legend.
A good comparisson would be a Lakers vs Okc
Okc might have more firepower but it will never have the status the Lakers have.

It doesn't have the name, but the GTR is very much respected in the car world and Nissan gives a very good reason to be. It's just not right to say that the GTR doesn't have heritage(not the same as the racing heritage of Ferrari, but it's still respectable).

Of course, It's still a great car, no doubt about that.

Bro dat aint ugly lol. It's not exotic looking but it sure is slick. And don't forget that the GT-R is 2x heavier than any Ferrari yet it still beats it. :shifty:

No one is saying nissan cant beat the italia, rayray and nyc are pointing out that Ferrari has the stats in the world as the most beauitful car that has been built.

i bet kobe doesnt care about the speed, horespower, weight. like what rayray said "looks, history of the brand, ec.."

doubt kobe is trying to go over 200mph at any point, or test the limits of his 0-60 driving through southern cali...he got a ferrari because its a FERRARI...

he pulls up in that nissan, a handful of car people might take notice, he pulls up in a ferrari...90% of everyone takes notice

the purpose of owning a ferrari is basically to let everyone around you know that you can afford to drop 200-400,000 on a car...not to win any races anywhere

Some ppl in here are really into racing and performance and don't really care about the status of the car so they don't really see how the majority of us could give two [expletive]s about a Nissan but drool over a Ferrari when the Nissan performs better.

Just a concept car, but when I first ever saw the concept for it a while ago I said "That's the kind of a car a secret agent would drive(especially when I read all the technology they are adding to it) and after doing the research on it, wanted it badly.

Just so happens I later saw it in a Mission Impossible movie and laughed and said "SEE! Secret Agent car lol"

But I'm sure it won't take long before Kobe has one of those as well custom made and black :glasses:

I think most of us know the GTR is a beast. It's on hell of a performer but it's still a Nissan. I'm a bit biased because I really don't like the GTR at all and I would choose a ZR1 over it any day, but I still respect what it is, but Kobe ain't gonna pull up in a Nissan just like he wouldn't be ridin around in a Chevy.

Of course, but I never said he should anyways. I said I would.
