Everyone wants to have a super car but not everyone can afford it. Super cars are also known to have quite the number of requirements before one can make a purchase, but not the Nissan 2017 GT-R. One can even say it's the average guy's super car.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R Powertrain

According to a report from Drive, the 2017 Nissan GT-R is equipped with 3.8 liter six-cylinder twin turbo engine capable of putting out 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive (AWD) drivetrain. Accordingly, the powertrain allows the 2017 Nissan GT-R to go from zero to 60mph in a very short 2.9 seconds, a feat only real super cars can accomplish.

The Look Of A Super Car

The 2017 Nissan GT-R is equally beautiful on the inside as it is in the outside. Slash Gear reported that the 2017 Nissan GT-R is dressed with a new spoiler, and a grille that has been upsized. Other features include new side skirts, exhaust tips and integrated corner vent LED fog lights. Buyers can choose among red, black, white blue, blaze metallic and heroic orange to complete the look of the super car.

More Affordable Than Conventional Super Cars

Unlike other super cars, the 2017 Nissan GT-R doesn't have too many requirements before it can be purchased. And compared to other super cars like the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 Turbo S, which both have very expensive price tag, the 2017 Nissan GT-R is only priced at $109,990. It is cheaper by $50,000 and more than $100,000 as compared to the Audi and Porsche respectively as reported.

The Average Guy's Super Car

With the price tag being only a little bit over $100,000, it's safe to say that the 2017 Nissan GT-R is the average guy's super car. However, while the price may be more affordable than most, buyers have to remember that it's still a super car and its maintenance can still be costly.
