The only supercar criteria that the GT-R has is performance, there is nothing exclusive about the GT-R, it is NOT rare at all, it can be easily attained by most enthusiasts and even college students, 'terror and respect' - I think the GT-R has a wow factor, terror and respect is not really what happens at the autobahn in top end runs.
If you like to play around with the local ricers, sure 0-60 is cute, maybe a 1/4 mile at a few of seconds is something you can cling on to, but at the autobahn, after 120mph is where the men are seperated from the boys, and I'm not sure the GT-R rains terror in places like the autobahn on other supercars...or super performaning cars.
