Company car vs. private car: These 7 cars Germans really prefer to buy
You asked for them, we deliver: The true heroes of the 2020 new registration statistics. In the case of big players like VW, the extremely high proportion of commercial customers distorts the picture. Often, these vehicles go to companies in gigantic numbers with large discounts. The share of private buyers, i.e. those who invest their saved money, is low for many new registration kings. Deliberate trickery with one-day registrations of supposed demonstration cars further dilutes the validity of the Federal Motor Transport Authority's statistics. So which cars do Germans really prefer to buy? We have the answer.
Nissan developed the 2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO to be the pinnacle of the iconic nameplate. For maximum performance, the engine was upgraded, its aerodynamics further enhanced, and weight was shed through the meticulous use of exotic materials. But when the time came to document the newest Nissan super sports car in its natural habitat – on the track – there was one problem. How to film it? Enter Mauro Calo. A professional precision driver and automotive video expert known for his work on big-budget blockbuster movies and automotive TV shows, he has the perfect car to chase and film the 2020 GT-R NISMO – another GT-R. While Nissan helped locate a suitable GT-R to be transformed into a purpose-built camera car, Calo was already working on the design. Once the car arrived, he and his team fitted a bespoke tubular structure that was welded to the chassis and able to hold the weight of the professional carbon-fiber gimbal camera mounting system.
