This Totaled Nissan GT-R from Puerto Rico Makes You Sad

Totaled Nissan GT-R from Puerto Rico 1 photo
If there’s anything worse than not affording to buy your dream car that most likely is seeing it belonging to the wrong driver. And it has to be a wrong driver since this Puerto Rican managed to completely destroy this beautiful Japanese sportscar the other day.
It appears the driver lost control on a neighborhood road and flipped over several times. Luckily no one was injured in the harsh crash, but there sure is going to be a lot of sadness especially with the owner of the Nissan GT-R since it most likely will end up in the crusher.

The car itself is a rare breed you simply can’t not ignore, much less when such a tragedy happens. After all, we are looking at the successor to the Skyline GT-R and one of the world’s most popular 2-door sports coupe.

The Nissan GT-R is quite different to its European-designed sportscars since Shiro Nakamura intended it to be so from the very beginning. Nissan’s chief creative officer has likened the 2007 Japanese speed-beauty to the giant robots of the Gundam series, thus trying to reflect the country’s culture.

That’s exactly why seeing a wrecked GT-R almost feels worse than any other sportscar. Then there’s that 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 engine connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It’s a vehicle that managed to get into the Guinness World Records books in 2011 with the fastest 0 to 60 mph acceleration by a four seater production car.

Getting back to our wrecked Japanese speed-runner, it appears we’re once again looking at one of those situations when the wrong people get to drive the world’s best.
