Hey all

I'm planning on picking up a new car around December or New Year time.. Narrowed down to options to a select few just wanted others opinions on the cars and what they think would suit best and just general opinions. I love all 3 cars which is why I'm extremely confused atm..

2012 Nissan GT-R
2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Black Diamond Edition
2012 Mercedes Benz C-63 AMG


I really cannot choose which one would be best, GT-R is just an absolute monster but maintaince would be a pain and also I've heard the car gets boring to drive after a while.

CTS-V Coupe would be shit loads of fun, RWD, muscle car + burnouts and looks killer also a great and amazing car to drive.

C-63 the exhaust note of this car is just the best and of course again would be lots of fun muscle car, RWD, drifting + burnouts and all but also quality engineering and precision been put into the car.


What do you guys think?

Thanks

If your after RWD and Power, why not go for a real Muscle car and get a Corvette ZR1?

GT-R b*tches.
And don't get the CTS-V coupe, the sedan looks better and is way more practical.

Test drive them all and you be the judge... Figures and reviews about the cars on paper dont mean a thing.. If you are investing in such a premium car, might aswell take all the time on earth to wisely chose..

As fun and amazing a ZR1 would be, I'm not looking for manual transmission.. Yes I know, muscle cars without manual = major fail but right now I'm just going for an automatic car..

We already have a CTS-V sedan in the family but the car is in Bahrain at the moment at my other house and I love the coupe personally and the interior is fine with me.

Again practicality not an issue already have a Nissan Patrol if I ever need to seat more than 3 people, I personally adore the looks of the V Coupe..

I should have mentioned I'm looking at the C63 coupe and not the sedan, don't really have much use for the sedan since I already have a Nissan Patrol so getting a coupe won't cause a problem with less seats etc..

Ah guys thank you to you all for the advice but I'm still quite confused probably narrowing it down to the GTR and the V-Coupe, I LOVE the 63 but in power wise in comparison to the GTR and the V-Coupe it's really underpowered.. Also AMG maintainance is a fucking pain, we have a G55 at home and barely a few months after we got it AMG racked up a huge bill to do with the brakes so I think I'm going to leave the 63 out of this..

Between the GTR and the V-Coupe!

And for all of you commenting on the V-Coupe looking ugly, the one I'm interested is ONLY the Black Diamond Edition! This one.

GT-R!! It gets my vote..

CTS-V Coupe is a sleek car, no doubt. since you already have a CTS-V sedan and the C63 feels underpowered, then we know what the obvious choice is

Just spoke to Nissan regarding the 2012 GT-R. First of all he quoted me a ridiculous price of 500k? Second he said they don't keep any cars in stock all the cars are made to order. Also the only period I can place my order in is in December/January and THEN another 4-5 months till delivery.

What the %#%$?!

screw nissan the skyline was supposed to be cheap sports car for the masses. The old one started on 330K now they want 500K tell them to go f themselves.

Take the CTSV. PS I personally prefer the sedan though in pearl white

Yeah what the hell! I'm so disappointed! I found a Saudi Arabia dealer who is able to ship the car from America, American Specs for 389,900 AED.

Now that is the real price.. but there must be a catch somewhere!
