VIDEO: 2012 BMW M5 v 2012 Nissan GT-R

F10 BMW M5 v R35 Nissan GT-R

In his latest Drive clip Chris Harris has put a 2012 BMW M5 up against a 2012 Nissan GT-R? That doesn’t make any sense. Well, according to Google and YouTube it does. From the video description: “It’s perfect for YouTube search results, and thats why we’re doing it.”

Okay, then. Well they are both considered heavy cars for their segment. They both have twin-turbo motors, a V8 in the BMW and a V6 in the GT-R. Both have double clutch transmissions. And, so we’re told, they’re both great search fodder.

But that’s where the similarities end, really. That said, in isolation Harris provides some good in-depth feedback on both cars and, well, who wouldn’t spend a few days in these two cars if given the chance?
