The GTR is substantially larger. 2 different surgeons have them where I work and I park next to them as much as I can because I assume they have the same inexplicable GTR worship that some people on here have, and therefore won't ding my doors.
The hood is much higher up and I can't see one of those things without being amused and amazed by how big they are. I'd think the length/width is comparable to a Ford Excursion.
I can't imagine how they could feel more nimble than a 3.
