    The aerodynamics have been improved a lot but the car still looks exactly the same, Magic!

  5. Litchfield Imports (UK) have taken delivery of 2 of them; one goes to a customer who has 5 R35s. Yeah, holy crap @ that other car on their lift.

    I find it hilarious that they're calling it a supercar...That shit barely stands out among normal cars.
     
  8. I agree, but at least it doesn't look like a 20k kit car.
     
  9. I think it's the best car ever made.

    I'm serious.
     
  10. maybe from japan but not in the world
     
  11. Some VBox figures from that customer GT-R (full tank).
    0-60: 2.9
    0-100: 7.2
    60-130: 9.6
    1/4 mile: 11.1 @ 123.9

    Figures are in line with Nissan-supplied press tests by edmunds, Car & Driver (both tested in low 50-degree temps), R&T and Motor Trend. And for sure faster than Motor Trend's '09 car dyno tested at 431 whp (60-130 in 10.9s).

    One does not need 619ps and 711Nm (or 780Nm, in ImportRacing's case) for an 11.1s 1/4 mile time. ~530 PS and 636 Nm will do.
     
  12. well, the best sport car. i think of it as a mini-veyron.
    after driving couple of GTRs, i really like the way it deliver the power, accelrate, handel, and it provide all of this in contoled way and in a very comfortable environment with a very very very resonable price (or bargain).
    if the same car is build with Ferrari or Porsche or Lambo badge on it, it will be hailed as the best thing ever invinted in the world.
    thank u nissan for this incredible machine and rasing the bar in this category.
     
  13. mini veyron sums it up. except i don't care for the veyron but the gtr is a car i really like. it just seems like a car that would be pleasureable to own/use/service.
     
  14. nice troll
    3.5/10
     
  15. More bang for your buck than a ZR1.

    impressive performance, and the best performances/price ratio ever!
    ...but the world of launch controls is very competitive...

    The edmunds test was done on the opposite end of California Speedway's Dragway (no performance-enhancing compounds laid down here). The surface looks pretty typical. The differences you see between US and Euro tests are likely due to correction factors.

    2012 GT-R stock vs C6 Z06 (muffler delete) vs ESS E92 M3 (supercharged)



    Recall Autocar's London City Airport comparo, 60-150 mph
    Z06 (with muffler): 13.2s
    997.1 Turbo*: 15.7

    *Appears to be the same yellow Porsche GB press car (same plate) as used by TopGear against the 'Ring mule on the autobahn, where the 911 was faster than the mule.
     
  23. guibo you really really like statistics dont you.
     
  24. I like 9/10ths of them about 65% of the time. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  25. Statistics are Guibo's dildo.
