blogs.edmunds.com It was the one condition we agreed to when Nissan handed us the keys to this white pre-production GT-R. "You can do whatever you want," Nissan engineer Bruce Robinson told us. "But no testing. We'll get you a production car for that in a few weeks" "No problem," we said. "Cross our hearts." But drag racing isn't testing. Well, sorta. And last night we went drag racing. Sacramento Raceway grudge night. The place was packed. And the 2009 Nissan GT-R was the star of the show. The crowds around the car were four deep most of the night. Everyone wanted to know how we got it, how much it costs and of course, how fast it could go. We popped the hood, opened the doors and let anyone who wanted to sit behind the wheel. Every camera phone ever sold seemed to be pointed at the car. And when it was our time to make a pass the stand packed like John Force had come to town with his funny car.
