Nissan GT-R tries to impress Proton Wira, fails miserably

Nissan GT-R tries to impress Proton Wira, fails miserably 01

Here we have a Nissan GT-R, at a traffic light that has just turned green. You know where this is going, don't you? Driver of said GT-R then proceeds to launch the car at full throttle. Said GT-R then proceeds to suddenly snap sideways and on to the side of the road, almost taking out innocent motorcyclists in the process.

So many factors could've caused this spin, like road surface or worn/cold tyres. Having said that, one can't help but feel that it's a bad idea to fully deploy close to 600 PS on a public road. Whilst launch and stability control systems are there to assist you, there is a limit to their efficacy, especially in a high performance car like a Nissan GT-R.

We all get the urge to mash the throttle sometimes, but in this instance, trying out the performance of a Nissan GT-R is best left for the race track. At least you can drive the car on the limit without endangering other motorists' lives.
