Nissan GT-R Races Ferrari FF From 0 to 155 MPH

The Nissan GT-R and the Ferrari FF have more in common than it might seem at first sight. First of all, the two offer rather close performance, with the Prancing Horse having the edge here. Nonetheless, no set of figures can beat the real world action, so we’re here to give you a drag race between Godzilla and the most practical Fezza ever.

On paper, the FF’s advantage can be clearly seen, as the Italian burdens each hp with 3.1 kilograms, while the Japanese places 3.4 kilos on each of its horses. While the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system that’s basically the core of the GT-R gives is the edge in the sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph), the FF takes the 0 to 200 km/h cake. And thanks to its naturally-aspirated V12, Maranello’s creation also shows better in-gear acceleration.

As for a real world attempt, the footage below provides a pretty good example of that. We won’t ruin the fun by giving you the details on what goes on in this race, but we have to mention the GT-R lost traction when shifting from 1st to 2nd, a mishap that didn’t come without its price.

These two have another important aspect in common

Both the FF and the GT-R cater to that fast family man’s transportation needs. They really can’t be rivaled when it comes to interior space in the Grand Tourer and supercar class, respectively.

This may not seem too important when all you do is compared figures, but when your children are unhappy with riding in the back of a Porsche 911, you might start considering the pair we’re talking about. It’s just that the Ferrari FF, with all its assets, costs three times as much as the Nissan GT-R.
