The Nissan GT-R: Definitely a Ringer – AutoAnything

The GT-R is the car that Nissan under-promised and over-delivered. Not only does it rocket from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, running the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds, but it can lap the ring in 7:29. Many believe that Nissan has been sandbagging…480HP just isn’t enough to move a car that weights 3,800 pounds. Car & Driver recently put 5 different GT-R’s on the dyno and found out that they actually make around 520 horsepower, which is about 40 more than the sticker says! Not only do they make more power, but Car & Driver was able to get from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds with a quarter-mile time of 11.5 seconds! What else has Nissan not told us about the GTR?
