Appropriately named Godzilla, the GT-R is the meanest sports car to come from Japan. With 565 horsepower on tap, this all-wheel drive missile can blast from 0 to 100 km/h in about three seconds, thanks to its effective launch control system. The Track Edition is even exotic with 600 horsepower, a NISMO-tuned suspension and a carbon-fibre roof. Its cockpit is trimmed with a mix of leather and Alcantara, while its eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system is resolutely modern.
