There is no denying the fact that the Nissan GT-R has changed the way in which supercars are currently being built and the way they will be built in the future. After all, the 2013/2014 GT-R recently set a blisteringly fast Nurburgring Nordschleife time of 7 minutes and 18 seconds, thanks to its uprated twin-turbo V6 engine which produces 550 horsepower.

However, is that much power enough to propel the GT-R around a wet, tight and twisty track faster than a tiny Audi A1 Quattro with less than half the power? Well, that’s exactly what Autocar recently set out to prove when it pitted the two unlikely competitors together in the former RAF Lindley airfield and the result may surprise you, but you’ll have to watch the video to find out who wins!
