We investigate the cult of the Nissan GT-R, and take an original 'Godzilla' for a spin.

Speed

Daikoku Futo parking area, just off the Bayshore Route that connects Tokyo to Yokohama, on a dry and chilly February night in the mid-nineties. Four automobiles sit neatly parked, their owners huddled in a tight group. The smell of Marlboro smoke mixes with intoxicating exhaust fumes, as two Supras, an RX-7 and a 911 idle impatiently. One guy brandishes a local newspaper, his thumb hovering over an ad that proclaims, “Watches for sale. Premium brands. Meet at Daikoku PA, 12am February 10th.”

Reckon you'd like to try your hand at some serious motorsport? SEAT has just the answer.

"Downforce increases with the square of speed. Downforce increases with the square of speed." I repeat this mantra to myself as I approach the next turn at nigh on 180km/h, knowing in my head that the rear spoiler is adding 100kg of weight to the automobile, while the front splitter balances it out with about 60kg of its own. Knowing something and trusting your life to the science of it are two very different things indeed...

Saloons have long enjoyed strong sales here, but in more recent times the segment has come under threat from increasing numbers of crossovers and SUVS. Automobile makers aren't ignoring the saloon segment though, with many producing some great new models. Increasing levels of passenger space as well as more economical engines mean today's modern saloons have a lot to offer buyers.

Meeting the inventor of ESP

ESP is the biggest safety advance in automobile technology since the seatbelt; we met the German engineer who dreamt up the idea.

Frank-Werner Mohn is a German engineer. Nothing unusual in that in the automotive industry. Indeed, in my line of work I probably meet a German engineer every other week. I love that Germany values its engineers, holding them in the same high regard as doctors. They’re rightly seen as the drivers of the country’s economy, and widely regarded as among the very best in the world.

While the government's and the ESB's predictions for the number of electric automobiles on Irish roads seem wildly wide of the mark right now, there's undoubtedly more momentum in the sector of late and plenty of new electric models coming on stream. We're also seeing useful gains in range, which is still seen by the buying public as a major hurdle. An electric automobile would suit far more motorists than they realise.

1 - Nissan Leaf

You have to admire Nissan for taking the electric automobile plunge with its Leaf hatchback years before most rivals even considered it. Unsurprisingly, it's…
