Arrow 2012 Nissan GT-R officially goes 0-60 in 2.9 seconds


What’s it take to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just under three seconds flat? According to Nissan, it takes exactly 530 horsepower and 448 pound-feet of torque, coupled to a sophisticated electronic all-wheel-drive system and a dual-clutch transmission.



Put more simply in actual dollars and cents, that will cost you $89,950. For those unaware, that’s the sum Nissan is asking for its updated 2012 GT-R, which recently made its live American debut at the 2010 LA Auto Show. The Japanese automaker has kindly provided a digital readout from an electronic measurement device from Digitek to silence the doubters (above). As you can clearly squint and see, the GT-R hit 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds and 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph) in exactly three seconds.

Your move, Corvette ZR1.

If they haven't fixed the transmission, it will still be worthless...

There are several different computer controled settings for each clutch in the tranny. All they did is have them not engage a harsh as the previous years model. It seems to have reduced some of the issues.

This is just something I over heard, don't quote me on it.

Will anyone who knows how to drive buy one and take it to the track?





doubtful.

I recently chased a guy in one of these who could not get around me on street rubber and had to put on the 295 & 335 Hoosiers...and it was a thing of beauty. I almost put the car off the track watching the differentials work and the guy MURDERED me in the slow sections, I was able to reel him in on the fast kinks. The kinks were crazy to watch, the rear inside wheel looked like it stopped spinning to rotate the rear of the car rather than push, and in the slow stuff the rear inside wheel would spin like crazy to rotate the car again. When he certainly over-cooked a kink that drops elevation with braking on exit I was certain the car would go off, but somehow the 2-ton boat did its signature "wiggle" and stayed on-line. That car is self-aware.

I was amazed by that car, then discussed the vintage pedigree of my 20-year old vehicle and castigate the "cheater" in modern technology.

Just because Nissan can get the perfect launch, under the right conditions, when the moon is closest to the sun and the air has .3481 less dense molecules and pavement that was layed by Nissan for Nissan.....doesn't mean it's going to happen for everyone.
