Nissan GT-R Spec V vs Conti SS
Already weighty performers, now the honed Spec V and SS versions are about to throw stones at each other

Snowdonia National Park, a place of breathtaking, primal beauty, is a fine place to investigate. It mixes fast-flowing open roads with the sort of hard-to-read super-tight stuff that makes an Ariel Atom feel unwieldy. There's nowhere better in the country to give this pair of expensive chancers a proper work-out, not least because the GT-R is currently sitting outside my house, and my house is sitting approximately 250 miles south of Snowdonia. For the rock-hard, rock-star Nissan, the test starts right now, and to be honest the prospect of four or five hours and several chunks of British motorway in this monster is currently leaving my boat unfloated.
