This is not your average stock GTR for rent. This GTR has full bolt on modifications tuned to 600 horse power to the wheels which amounts to 700 horse power to the crank or more!
Under a full 20 psi boost blitz with the new launch control (aka R Mode Start Function) engaged, all 530 twin-turbocharged horses and 448 pound-feet of thrust catapult a motionless all-wheel drive 2012 Nissan GT-R to 60 mph in a blistering 2.9 seconds. The car that in 2007 changed a number of performance reference points is changing them once again.
For those unfamiliar with speed, the new GT-R achieves a kind of quickness expected from the automotive world's uppermost crust -- those with six-figure price tags attached or with ultra-limited production numbers. These include the $130,000-plus Porsche Turbo PDK (0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds) and multi-million dollar Bugatti Veyron (2.7 seconds). A Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce would be demolished in a straight line battle (3.2 seconds), as would a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano (3.2 seconds), Corvette ZR1 (3.3 seconds), and Lexus LFA (3.8 seconds, without launch control).
Rapid fire a few more 0.15-second dual-clutch up-shifts (0.3 seconds in "normal" mode) and the coupe's quad pipes scream a throaty sayonara to 1320-feet of pavement in 11.2 seconds at 122.7 mph (the 2011 model accomplished the task in 11.8 seconds at 119.8 mph). Only the Porsche Turbo and Bugatti Veyron best Japan's fastest car.
