A while back I gave Nissan an “Epic Fail” for raising the MSRP on the GT-R. In all seriousness the price increase was nessasary but came at a really bad time since the GT-R was still seeing giant markups at the dealerships.
Well today I am officially revoking my “Fail” of Nissan and instead awarding them an “Epic WIN”. Why? Well Road & Track editor/GTChannel Reporter Sam Mitani spent some time with the GT-R’s Chief Vehicle Engineer Kazutoshi Mizuno. During their conversation Mizuno-san explained the mystery behind the Launch Control controversy that has followed the GT-R since its release and finally sheads some light on the issue.
Thanks Nissan and GTChannel.com!
