I think most people that own a specific car get carried away in touting and defending it (just look at all the nonsense spouted about the M3). The GTR is no different.
But I can say out of all the nice cars I have owned I have never encountered such a strong negative reaction that the GTR brings out in some people. Its just flat out weird.
And yes 0-60 time is a very limited measure. It's all about traction and launch. I think 0-100, 60-130 and quarter miles times/trap speeds give a much better indication of raw performance.
