The best place to test a car is in its natural habitat, at least that is what Jay Leno must think since he recently took the Nissan GT-R for a late night stroll in Tokyo, Japan.

In an "of course it wasn’t planned" moment, Leno found himself amidst a number of GT-R owners, along with Sam Mitani from Road & Track. Mitani was there to offer a few details about the meetings GT-R owners have. Tuned or not, old or new generation, these owners get together to have a little fun with their own Godzillas.

The future generation Nissan GT-R will also be included in these meetings soon enough as it is planned to debut in 2015. We expect big changes to occur for that generation, a little like what Chevrolet has planned for the Corvette C7.

Umm... no, Volkswagen’s DSG is actually the fastest shifting transmission on Earth.

Anybody who is complaining about the "automatic" transmission is just plain wrong. It has a dual clutch automated manual. Pretty much the most sophisticated, fastest shifting transmission on earth.

The Nissan GT-R is the best sports car in the world and that’s the end of it. For the money, there is nothing....and I mean nothing...that is better.

the 500 HP, launch control, 4wd, awesome gearbox are just some of the facts that make this car worth its money!
