At least it's dry. With its sticky Dunlop Sport semi-slicks at full operating temperature, the Spec V enters and exits corners at scarcely believable velocities. Like the Bugatti Veyron, you begin to realise the Nissan GT-R is actively redefining what a car can do. This isn't driving so much as pulling on a piece of hi-tech military ordinance. It's darty, nervous and much less forgiving than the standard GT-R, but if you can handle it, it offers a level of intimacy and interaction that's off-the-scale. The only thing that's missing is our old friend, soul.
