Today, December 30, 2010, is a great day. It is the day that I say good bye and so long to my 2004 Bentley Arnage what was a nightmare to own and service and say hello to my new 2010 Nissan GT-R. This is my first Nissan since my 2003 350Z Track Model and many of the things that I loved about the 350Z Track Model are found in the GT-R. Also, the car reminds me a lot of the raw power and character of my 1972 Datsun 240Z that was Bob Sharp race prepared. The raw power and capability is amazing and with 0-60 times of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 197 mph, you can certainly imagine what it is like behind the wheel. It is hard to keep it under 100 mph for sure. Thankfully, the car has all-wheel-drive to keep the car on the road.
I wish that I could say that I enjoyed owning a Bentley, but I can not. I would never own another one. Bentley is now owned by VW, so I with them luck with that. The Arnage was a car that impressed everyone from age 8 to 80, but the GT-R only impresses one person… ME and that is all I care about. Faster than a Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 430 and Porsche Twin Turbo and half the price or less than any of those.
