No one in their right mind would take their brand new, $70,000 sports car onto a silt-covered dry lake just to do donuts in the dirt. So, of course, that's the first place we headed. There was plenty of room on El Mirage dry lake to stretch the GT-R's legs a little. We got it up to 130 mph before deciding that the limited visibility and random mounds of dirt made anything faster a potentially life -- and GT-R -- threatening exercise. Then we turned off the traction control and got it sideways to see what the GT-R is like when it's not stuck to the pavement. Shocker of the day -- it's fun. Click through to see the videos.
