If you value speed over any other attribute in a car, consider the Nissan GT-R. Wheels.ca named it to its list of the 10 Best Performance Bargains of 2020. Despite the longevity of the current generation, the Nissan GT-R still delivers a powerful punch.


Available Now: 2020 Nissan Pathfinder


“Yes, the R35 GT-R is ‘old’ and yes, its once untouchable performance has begun to almost look like table stakes in its later years,” according to Wheels.ca writer Chris D’Alessandro. “But it does the same 2.9 second 0-60 mph time as the ‘Vette, enough to humiliate most Ferraris and Lamborghinis. In Nismo trim, it just recently set a new production car lap time record of 59.3 seconds at the Tsukuba Circuit. A Ferrari 458 Italia’s best time on the same track is 1:02.24.”

The Nissan GT-R will set you back by almost $130,000, but that price guarantees a thrilling driving performance, exceptional power, stunning good looks, and advanced safety systems.
