It may look like something that’s more suited to the middle lane of the motorway, but don’t be fooled, a souped up version of this fantastic muscle car set records when it took to the Nurburgring. Packed with cutting edge Japanese technology and engineering the GT-R is a real wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Powered by a 3.8 twin turbo V6 engine, the Nissan GT-R rockets from a standing start to sixty miles per hour in an unbelievable 3.2 seconds, figures that put some two seater supercars in the shade. Four wheel drive adds grip that has to be experienced to be believed, entering the corners or exiting the corners, the GT-R copes with them with equal aplomb. Finally, not forgetting this is a four seater family saloon, the Nissan GT-R has a top speed of 193 mph, so forget the school run and let your kids loose in what can only be described as the ultimate muscle car.

When you arrive at the track there is a quick registration process, then the junior Nissan GT-R experience begins with a full safety and technical briefing, this is taken by one of our qualified ARDS instructors. Here the junior drivers have the chance to quiz the instructor and ask as many questions as they have about the car, the circuit and the forthcoming Nissan GT-R experience.
With the briefing over it’s time to head out to the track where the instructor will get behind the wheel and drive some familiarisation laps, showing the junior drivers the racing lines, braking points, car positioning and the general layout of the chosen circuit. With the instructor behind the wheel offering advice we endeavour to ensure that all junior drivers get the most out of their drive when they get behind the wheel of the brutal Nissan GT-R for a full six mile drive.
