Updated 2012 Nissan GT-R acceleration time announced

When Nissan announced that its upgraded 2012 GT-R had its power output increased to 395kW, fans didn’t really know exactly what that would mean for performance. Now, Nissan has released official performance figures for the latest and greatest Godzilla and the results are staggering.

Nissan tested the GT-R’s sprint time on the Sendai Hi-land Race Way in Japan a couple of weeks ago in the middle of November and the car returned a very impressive result. Standing start to 100 km/h clocked in at a flat 3.0 seconds.

There was no funny business either with the company using a standard specification model including tyres and wheels. No optional parts were fitted to the test vehicle and the car was set to “R” mode for the suspension and VDC-R (Vehicle Dynamic Control) system.

With the GT-R priced from $172k here in NZ, it would be hard to find another car which offers this much bang for your buck.
