Picked up a GTR...

So I ended up selling my Viper, and picking up a GTR.

The car is a full bolt on car with upgraded intercooler running E85.

Here are some pics:

While I have never been overly fond of their looks, I can overlook that for the performance. On a side note, I actually like the way that one looks, nice ride.

That one actually looks good. Most look awkward. I guess black is slimming. Going from a Viper to a GT-R is a lot like giving your driving skill a vasectomy, however.

Thanks guys!

I didn't like the look of GTR's either, but this one looked different to me. I picked up a GTR because I was looking for something new after having 3 Vipers. The car is very easy to drive and is very comfortable.

When I first drove it, I was surprised that it didn't feel as numb as I expected. Granted, it is nothing like the raw feeling of a Viper, but it does feel like you are driving a car and not a video game.

The car feels pretty quick... but it is a different type a speed. Instead of feeling like it is trying to kill you, it just pulls straight ahead.

So to translate for the alley, I guess you could say that a Viper is like dating a hot stripper... Crazy hot, wild in the sack , but not the brightest...and may try to kill you one day. Where as the GTR would be like dating a college asian freshman, safe, subtle looks, super smart, and a closet freak.
