Video: Test driving the MLB Rookie of the Year's Nissan GTR

Spotted in Tampa at VSR Motorsports while visiting Michael Adkins of Mtuned Tuning for a quick ECU flash, I had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of Jose Fernandez's Nissan GTR and take it for a spin! Fully customized with several special features, Jose's GTR is just as fast as his fastball, and handles just as well too.

Meeting Jose in person is quite a treat. He's a very nice guy, down to earth, and to be honest, I wouldn't have known he was the MLB ROY if it wasn't for the fact I knew who he was and recognized him instantly. Just another gearhead seeking speed, it was a true honor to document his car and share it for the world to see.

Next time you are in Tampa, be sure to swing by VSR Motorsports as you never know who will show up next! This place is loaded with local celebs getting their cars tuned, fixed up, etc.
