2012 BMW M5 vs. Nissan GT-R: Driven and Drifted
Posted On: 2/21/2012 3:39PM

Let me preface this video by saying that there’s a reason that the 2012 BMW M5 keeps getting compared to Nissan’s insanely good GT-R. First off, both cars pump out similar power: the BMW, 552 hp and the GT-R, 542 hp. The BMW makes its power by way of a twin-turbo V8 and the GT-R a twin-turbo V6. Both cars have four usable seats and as grand touring cars they both excel above and beyond what’s expected. This is where the comparison gets a little foggy, however. You see, the GT-R is a knife-edge performance sports car, whereby the M5 is a super saloon. They’re both amazing at what they do, but they do it in different ways. DRIVE’s Chris Harris recently jumped behind the wheel of both cars to not only give his impressions, but to go over the ins and outs of two of the world’s best automobiles. Hit the jump to watch the video!

IDk why people keep comparing the GTR to every performance car that comes out. They are not in the same league. M5 is a luxury grand tourer that hauls ass, the GTR is a porsche/ferrari/fuckitanythingwith4wheels killer.
