The GT-R (except Premium/50th Anniversary Edition) offers optional heat-treated ceramic brake rotors, which last ten to twenty times as long as conventional cast iron rotors, don’t rust, don’t fade during repeated high speed braking, and their lighter weight contribute to better braking, handling and acceleration. The S5 doesn’t offer ceramic brake rotors.

For better traction, the GT-R has larger tires than the S5 (F:255/40R20 & R:285/35R20 vs. 245/40R18).

The GT-R’s 285/35R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 35 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the S5’s standard 40 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the GT-R has standard 20-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the S5.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the GT-R can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The S5 doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the GT-R is .3 inches wider in the front and 1.3 inches wider in the rear than the track on the S5.

The GT-R’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (54.7% to 45.3%) than the S5’s (56.7% to 43.3%). This gives the GT-R more stable handling and braking.

For better maneuverability, the GT-R’s turning circle is 1.1 feet tighter than the S5’s (36.6 feet vs. 37.7 feet). The GT-R NISMO’s turning circle is .3 feet tighter than the S5’s (37.4 feet vs. 37.7 feet).

The design of the Nissan GT-R amounts to more than styling. The GT-R has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .26 Cd. That is lower than the S5 (.29 to .3). A more efficient exterior helps the GT-R go faster and keeps the interior quieter. It also helps the GT-R get better fuel mileage.

The GT-R uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The S5 doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

The GT-R’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The S5 does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The GT-R’s standard power windows have a locking feature to keep children from operating them. Audi does not offer a locking feature on the S5’s standard power windows.
