The new Nissan GT-R Nismo represents the latest iteration of a 12-year-old model. This begs the question: Is it still relevant?

This is the latest 'ultimate' version of the Nissan GT-R, the 2019 R-35 Nismo. But, how much better can this car be when it's had 12 years of evolution already and is it still as relevant today as it was in 2007?

When the R-35 GT-R was launched, it was a revelation. A true supercar-hunter but for half the price. It also caught the attention of the aftermarket tuners and, over the last 12 years, we've seen many highly modified versions pushing out an enormous amount of horses.

But, after such a long time, many other manufacturers have caught up in the performance and handling departments. Which begs another question, is it still a good value proposition?

To answer these questions, we join Henry Catchpole from Carfection as he takes the new 2019 Nissan GT-R Nismo on a drive through the country, heading for the EuroSpeedway in Lausitz.
