Default Nissan Skyline GTR Crash

Here's another pic of the Skyline GTR crash. It occurred in Hong Kong, one of the few places where the car has been officially launched. It's unknown whether it was being test driven and crashed, or it was a purchased customer's car.



And here's how to crash perfectly into a streetlight:



Cheers!

I happen to visit the Wrecked Exotics website quite often. Its just plain crazy to see these beauties take a beating in the hands of an irresponsible driver.Most of them either racing or were drunk when the car crashed.
Ah well..they've got the money..

Eh, who said the GTR was crashed by an Indian?

I don't think the GTR was crashed by an Indian.

What a pity! The car would have barely been used a few months,and it meets such an end.

I think it can happen to anyone. I understand one should release the true potential of these beauties on a track. But it is very difficult to resist not speeding these on public roads and control can go haywire in different circumstances. Not all these cars are crashed being drunk. Its not any justification to save the owner of the crashed car. I think most of US have taken their cars beyond their limits on public roads in India. It happens and one has to learn to be careful and resist himself/herself from speeding.

Nissan puts so much effort into their trick differential and their magical AWD system, and this is what people do to it in return. A crash even before it's officially launched everywhere!!

must have been going really fast in a straight line to crash like that. what a loser!! if you want to drive straight fast buy an American car with a v8 , those are more affordable to crash!

take the gt-r to the track and crash it when you discover what oversteer is ..

The Car crashed because the car aquaplanned and lost control, the driver tried to swereve the car back in a staight line but cos it was on a dual carriageway he didnt have enough room to correct and hit aanother car or a road barrier i think, but def the car had aquaplanned.
