Audi R8, Nissan GT-R: 27 images that are not we had taught our first comparative of the year #GarajeDiariomotor

In motor we have started the year with a good couple of guests, a Nissan GT-R and a Audi R8 with those who have traveled to malaga Ascari circuit. We tell you all the details of the test in the article “Audi R8 V10 Plus vs Nissan GT-R-Track-Pack. The day that Godzilla is pitted Iron Man”, but there is more: these are the 27 images that are not we had taught from our trip with Godzilla and the car Iron Man (although by the colors of our unit could well be the mount of Batman).

Day 2 January, the first production of the year… and we started all over on high:

To one side of the ring a V10 atmospheric 610 horses, brakes carbocerámicos, a well-tuned quattro, an avant-garde interior… the classical appearance of a supercar reinterpreted by Audi in front of a beast japanese of large dimensions, aggressive attitude. A V6 supercharged under the hood, 550 horsepower, a suspension signed by Öhlins and Nismo ® – tuned, all-wheel drive…

of course both are not at all comparable. It is logical to justify the finish more spartan of the Nissan GT-R if we take into account the large economic gap that separates them, it is logical to similarly understand the evolved multimedia system, the V10, the Audi for the same reason. 121.250 euros for the Nissan GT-R, 214.800 € starting for the Audi R8 V10 Plus. The difference, economically, it is remarkable, very remarkable.

But remembered key details back to what concerns us in this article, this selection of photos that were not part of the test that days ago you could have read and which serve to illustrate also a great part of that travel, of those hours behind the wheel, behind the camera, the early mornings that are not seen.

Day one of January, David I passes the baton, pass me the keys to the Nissan GT-R. it will not be able to join us in this production. A first encounter with Godzilla, a few kilometers under the rain in Madrid…

… and to the Garage, morning touch early.

05:00. Juanma and I set off from Madrid with the Round set as the destination in the browser of our Nissan GT-R. Stop with the first rays of sun peeping out for breakfast, and fill up the tank.

beyond the photos that are scheduled in the circuit Juanma and I prepare a series of snapshots along the way, way later in the return. there are a must for a photo on the bridge of Villa del Río.


Move with a fast pace to meet Pepe and David Clavero
. We have been directly in the path, but a few miles from the circuit we find already with Pepe. Greetings of rigor and a quick look at the new generation of the R8. I like the combination they have chosen for this unit. First compliments to your cabin. We put in place.

Often porte…

The road, wet, has taken a toll on the bodies of our horses. A quick shower already in the paddock of Ascari and started.

That if a photo on this curve…


That if someone in the paddock…

That if in the pit…

now if now a shot from the heights…

now, if a launch control…

16:00. We have finished the photos in motion and we are looking for a place where to eat something fast, we continue with the photos to squeeze the last few minutes of light…

Palm trees, a swimming pool pristine, a path espctacular… I would not mind to be a member of Ascari….

say goodbye to the circuit. A pleasure to be able to meet the architect, the owner and a pleasure to enjoy the facilities, a wonder, an oasis for any petrolhead.

is Behind the circuit. we Visited briefly Round, recalling that the world premiere of Gran Turismo 6 took place in this locality where in fact Kenzunori Yamamuchi, director of the above-mentioned game, takes a ride with its name.


We said goodbye to David Clavero, and we will head to Granada
. We stay overnight there. The tiredness makes the already remarkable act of presence. A few beers, a few broken eggs with potatoes and to sleep.


The Alarm goes off at 07:00 in the morning
. We decided to make our way to Madrid by secondary roads to complete the photo shoot and enjoy more of the trip.


120 euros in gasoline
. The deposits are already filled in order to continue with the trip. Although we would still have to stop once more during the way to refuel.


The heart of Godzilla…


¿The last V10 atmospheric?

The new steering wheel of the Audi R8 is a true wonder.

Alcaudete. We see a castle in the background, we decided to take a detour, stop, one more photo…

… the sound of bells, the sound of the V10 in the R8…

The last kilometers are paid by the highway. The people greets us at the adelantarles, children stuck in the window…

Good way to start the 2016…
