EVO Magazine compares the Nissan GT-R and the BMW M5.

For 2013, Nissan offers a power upgrade for the GT-R. The engine now generates 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque — both going up by 15 from the 2012′s 530 and 448 — and produces higher end torque towards the 7000rpm redline. The 2013 revision also incorporates more efficient cooling ducts for the front brakes, slip-resistant seats, and a Track-Pack option that shaves over 200 pound in weight. The car still uses the same 3.8 liter twin-turbo DOHC 24-valve V6 engine.

BMW has moved on with the new F10 M5 from naturally aspirated engines to a TwinPower turbocharged V8. The high-revving 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged uses the BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology, twin-scroll turbochargers, high-precision direct fuel injection, Valvetronic variable valve control and a cross-bank exhaust manifold.

The super-M produces 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 502 lb-ft of torque from only 1500rpm.

EVO sets out to find out which one is quicker around the challenging turns of Anglesey Circuit.

    I know it’s quite obvious to favor the BMW on a BMW enthusiast site, but only a 2.8 second difference is a sport sedan, I’d have to go for the M5. The GTR is an awesome machine, but I do not like the interior, it looks cheap, I’m sure the quality is good, it’s just the look.

      The GT-R is still a great machine though. Drove it recently and it’s a beast

        I’ve driven it too, I do like the overall size of it, it’s a GT coupe with great super car performance. But for some reason I’m just not interested in it enough to buy one. I am still considering a M4 convertible as a secondary car.
