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. Thanks for the tip, Jeff!

      It's Hong Kong. The red taxi and police outfit are the hints.

      I actually visited the parallel importer's shop last week to check out the car. I almost paid the deposit for a black one to be delivered next week, but now glad I didn't.

      Customer test drive? I heard it was just a salesman returning the car from a car show. Anyways, the wouldn't even let go inside to car in the showroom despite I drove-in with a car that costs almost the same as the GTR...

      This wouldn't have happened if he was in a GT-R...oh wait, nevermind, wrong post.

        if insurance companies were smart, they would give a discount for attending racing training.

        but their dum and they dont

        Although not a Nissan GT-R this Ford GT crash looks and feels alot worse, almost on par with an Enzo crash:

        I swear, i honestly believe that you car manufacturers should require you to take a driving school to operate high end fast vehicles.... i think it should be added to cost of vehicle because with that training / is less likely to happen.

        If you were smart, you'd spell "they're" and "dumb" correctly.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I think that an incentive should be offered for high performance driving school when you purchase a car like this.

      It probably hit an Enzo ;)

      No guessing needed- that would be Hong Kong.
      I'll even guess it's on the Kowloon side near the University.

      I'm thinking about buying one of these for my 16 year old, blonde, whorish daughter who has a drinking problem how much do you think insurance will cost?
        • 7 Years Ago
        No way, you are Jamie Spears father?!

        I must say, you know how to raise them.

      Is the roof buckled at the apex of the window? Or is it always that sharp of a crease?
      • 7 Years Ago
      So, the question is, when will a part-out thread or ebay listing appear?
        • 7 Years Ago
        For real! This is some good swap material. Imagine if the fate of this engine is to find itself jammed between the fenders of something horribly retarded, like a Monza or something. How about and early eighties Cutlass Supreme? Wicked cool, but oh the horror for the purists!

      Should be able to buff that out.
