I drove the GT-R 2012 - compared to F10

I am sorry, I did not read all the posts in this thread. But maybe someone is interested in my own experience with both cars.fficeffice" />
I did test drive the 2012 550hp GT-R and for sure several times the M5 (in Ascari as well).

I really have to say the GT-R agility and the way how this car brings the power on the street is in an another league than M5. This feeling of very direct reaction on each and every pedal movement is very impressive. I am a passionate M5 driver and I can say M5 has no chance performance-wise against this new 550hp GT-R. The agility of this vehicle is one of the best I ever drove. It brings (mostly) the power directly on the road. Yes, I believe in the 2,8sec 0-100km/h (~0-60mph).

- the chassis/construction of M5 is in another league as the GT-R. Driving with high speeds you got a much better and direct feeling. You feel the road. Independent that you are in the F10 M5 much more decoupled from the things going on outside the car.
- In high speeds over 200 km/h (125mph) you feel weakness of the GT-R against F10, I had not such a good control of the car compared to the F10.
- The brakes of the GT-R are horrible and really crap: One time from 250km/h -> 50km/h (155->30mph) and you got fading.
- The car got no sound, sorry

I checked out as well new Carrera S, btw. only good point are the brakes. The rest, especially the electronic steering is definitely not my case.

Average fuel consumption during my test drives:
M5 F10: 25,6l/100km = 9,4 mpg
GT-R: ~23l/100km = 10,2 mpg
Carrera S: 20l/100km = 11,8 mpg

After all I ordered a new F10 M5.
