    First Nissan GT-R crash

    First Nissan GT-R crash


    Even with an advanced all-wheel-drive system, the Nissan GT-R must still be handle for some with its 480-horsepower twin-turbo 3.8L V6. Something like that must've been the case with the owner of this black GT-R, who has earned the distinctly displeasurable honor of being the first to crash a production Nissan GT-R. The location of the crash is unknown, though some forum goers have guessed Hong Kong. The circumstances surrounding the accident are also a mystery, though it's clear that the GT-R hit something almost head on and that its crumple zones do, in fact, work quite well. Hopefully we won't be posting about GT-Rs that bite the dust as often as we do Enzos, but clearly Nissan's new supercar needs to be respected by novice drivers.

    It is Hong Kong. You can tell by the writing on the Police officers hi-viz jacket and the bike.

    To the untrained (well, VERY untrained eye), you'd think it was the UK lol.

    I mean they got "Police" on there high-vis jackets & bike plus across the road is a number 15 bus...
    Let's not forget that it says Rescue on the side of the recovery truck AND, the Nissan is a right-hand drive.

    My money is on Kent!
