This Is How You Park a Pair of Nissan GT-Rs

We don’t know if you are aware of this, but there’s a special procedure for parking a Nissan GT-R. In fact, this shenanigan works best if you happen to have a pair of Godzillas around. As always with the Japanese supercar, we are talking about technology assisting the driver, so you could say this is the GT-R’s acceptance of “autonomous parking”.

First of all, you need plenty of space and for that it’s best to go all the way to the top level of a parking garage, just like the two Godzilla drivers in the video below did. And yes, you are correct, these are tuned incarnations of the Nissan GT-R.

You didn’t think you should actually park the car, did you? Now that you’ve got all this room around you, it’s much more fun to start sliding the thing around and, while you’re at it, race your fellow GT-R driver a little bit.

Before anybody says the idea here is misleading, you should know that the two supercars were actually parked, but only for a few seconds - that’s how long it took the driver to play with the three little buttons on the center console that control the car’s beahvior.

On a little more serious note, we have to explain why the GT-R simply needs to be driven at the limit for as much of the time spent inside it as possible. On one hand, the Japanese supercar’s extremely sharp all-wheel driver system, which friends like to call ATTESA E-TS, is so damn good that it allows you to lean on it and take the car to 10 out of ten.

As many have pointed out, the GT-R can be boring to drive, but when people who haven’t played with one hear that, they generally assume it’s because the electronics do everything for you. Like we said, this part is actually plenty of fun, the problem is that the Nissan lacks character, so when you’re not hooning it, you won’t have too many things to enjoy.

By the way, this is an issue that also shows itself with the McLaren 12C, albeit at a smaller scale.
