Yes, we know, pitting the BMW M5 against the Nissan GT-R is simply unconventional or some may say, even silly. The two vehicles have nothing in common and a recent showdown between the two put together by Autocar was received with high criticism.
But here comes Chris Harris, one of THE most respectable automotive journalists and a guy that gives it to you the way it is. Instead of pitting them head-to-head in a useless comparison, Harris takes the smart route and brings the two cars on a damp circuit where he demonstrates the technology of the two vehicles.
Conclusion? As expected: “Are they rivals, not really. Is the GT-R faster? Yes. Would you rather live with the M5 every day? Yes.”
