Nissan GT-R Nismo Vs Mercedes AMG GT-R: Head To Head Comparison
The GT-R name was the identity of the Nissan for a long time, and it became famous with the R32 Skyline GT-R. The car was so advanced; it gained the nickname "Godzilla," because it could destroy everything. However, currently, the GT-R Nismo is the most hardcore version of Nissan's sportiest model. On the other side, Mercedes has also come out with a hardcore version of its AMG GT sports car, calling it the GT-R. Like the Nissan, the Mercedes has a nickname, "The Beast From the Green Hell."
The Mercedes-AMG GT R and the Nissan GT-R Nismo have the same name and actually share a lot in common. Sports cars have front-mounted V-configuration engines, both are twin-turbo, features horsepower ratings, one is a 3.8-liter and the other a 4.0-liter, and both cars send power through a dual-clutch transaxle.
The main difference between the Nissan GT-R Nismo Vs Mercedes AMG GT-R is the AMG's rear-wheel-drive set-up versus the Nissan's all-wheel-drive system. That said, Mercedes' all-wheel steering versus the Nismo's two-wheel steering, the AMG's race compound tires versus the Nissan's street tires, and the AMG GT R is 200 pounds slimmer than Nissan's Nismo GT-R, as reported by Motor Trend.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo packs a 600-hp, 481-lb-ft 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 backed by a six-speed dual-clutch automatic. On the other hand, the Mercedes AMG GT R comes powered by 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that produces 577 hp and 516 lb-ft that is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Japanese GT-R was quicker to 60 mph and hit the quarter-mile first, but the German GT R out-braked the Nismo from 60 mph by 8 feet, as reported by CarBuzz.
During the head to head comparison by Motor Trend, it was found that driving around some twisty canyon roads, the hosts quickly realize how fast the Nissan still is over any pavement car. The front-end of the supercar is nearly perfect but the problem lies in the backend-it loose and has very little suspension travel, making the car step out during hard cornering without traction control on. However, the car produces good burnouts.
The Nissan's GT-R Nismo has outpaced the AMG GT R at the Nürburgring by 2 seconds. The Nissan GT-R has been on the market for a long time, but the car is still very competitive. Yet the Mercedes AMG GT R may have overtaken the Nissan as Motor Trend's favorite GTR.
