'12 GT-R Faster Than Ever - Spinout

Nissan reports the GT-R will gain a half second in 0-60 sprints, dropping its e.t. to 2.9 seconds.

Mar 15, 2011

As the GT-R heads into its fourth act, Nissan's (relatively) affordable supercar will be dramatically quicker than its predecessors. Nissan reports the GT-R will gain a half second in 0-60 sprints, dropping its e.t. to 2.9 seconds. That's one of the fastest production car times ever.

The '12 Nissan GT-R's advanced VR38DETT 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V-6 now produces 530 hp (versus the previous 485) and 488 ft-lbs of torque (versus the previous 434). The bump in thrust is a result of upping the boost, enhancing valve timing and air mixture ratio, and reducing intake air resistance by enlarging the inlet pipe diameter. The '12 GT-R's MSRP will be $90,950.
