Despite being an AWD monster, the Nissan GT-R is quite capable of going sideways, as you’ll see in this video by Edmunds. One caveat: the “engine settles into a low-frequency dirge that’s nowhere near loud enough.” Video after the break.

Sometimes the 2009 Nissan GT-R acts like it’s a rear-wheel-drive car, but more often, the AWD system is moving power between the wheels to keep the R35 on the proper line.
