A snippet from the GT-R's owner's manual.

It's even funnier because of stuff like this.

In our recent evaluation of the GT-R, we used R mode a lot in enthusiastic road work. During Road Test Editor Jonathan Elfalan's actual track testing and in Steve Millen's hot lapping, we followed Nissan engineer recommendations, switched VDC-R to its Off setting and let ATTESA E-TS do its traction-keyed magic.

^only if its 4 wheel drive like gt-r, porche turbo, audi r8, and gallardo and costs somewhere close to gt-r (its a japanese car they shouldn't kid themselves, charging 90 for 290 hp like on the last nsx). yea i know there was a cult follwoing, but i just enjoyed drag racing them in my c5 vette for half the cost.

Do they provide full disclosure as of what voids warranty prior to purchase?

Is this a case of, "The instructions, which must be followed to the letter, for opening the box are inside the box." ? ; -)

Hahahaha.

Well it really shows that Nissan is green at making supercars. I doubt Ferrari, Lambo, or Aston come with similar warranty restrictions.

No worries Mr C5. This thing is going after the Chevy Corvette ZR-1 as well. He demanded that it beat the GT-R. What Mr. Honda wants, he gets.

NSX will have SHAWD and it will beat GT-R's lap time @ Nurburing. But sounds like the one to beat right now is the rear drive ZR1
