Take a look at this heads up run between a new Porsche 911 Turbo S with tune and exhaust and a Nissan GT-R with tune, exhaust and E85 fuel setup. It’s a close race with the both cars running in the 10’s and GT-R edging out the Porsche by a few tenths.
The first Nissan GT-R NISMO was delivered to Matt, an administrator over at the GTRLife forums. Nissan executives were onhand for the personal delivery where they put the car up on a lift to check out some of the Nismo specific parts and details. The GT-R Nismo includes a host of carbon fiber and aerodynamic enhancements as well as a nice power bump from it’s 3.8L V6 Twin Turbo engine producing 600 horsepower. We’re looking forward to seeing some performance numbers as they start to hit the streets!
Motorsport Magazine lined up the McLaren MP4-12C, Porsche 991 Turbo S and Nissan GT-R for an all out 1000m drag race down an airstrip. While the 991 Turbo S and Nissan GT-R get a nice AWD jump off the line, the McLaren ends up screaming past both of them with ease.
Information on the upcoming 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo has leaked out and while the specs look great, the pricing might have gone a bit out of control.

The only performance spec to be leaked so far is the Nürburgring time of just 7:08.

We did some more testing with the McLaren MP4-12C in an attempt to get the best 0-60 MPH time we could on the street with street tires. The McLaren’s launch control system along with it’s 7 speed SSG transmission does a great job putting down the 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo’s 616HP to the ground. With just a slight hint of wheel spin from the stop, the McLaren rockets ahead hitting 60 MPH in 2.8 seconds and 100 MPH in just 6 seconds flat as per the in car VBOX.

We are continuing on with our testing of the 2013 Nissan GT-R, back in March we ran some initial tests where the car ran 11.01 @ 123.18 MPH, then in April with a little better weather we were the first to run a bone stock Nissan GT-R in the 10’s running 10.87 @ 125.26 MPH. We wanted to see what some minor modifications would do to enhance the performance of the GT-R and we started by adding an AAM Resonated Midpipe. The AAM Resonated Midpipe is made of 6-gauge T-304 stainless steel, saves 12.4 pounds vs the stock piece and enhances Read More
Here is a great race between the all new 2013 BMW M5 powered by the 4.4L TwinPower Turbo V8 making 560HP through a 7 speed dual clutch transmission vs a stock 2009 Nissan GT-R powered by a 3.8L V6 Twin Turbo putting out 485HP through a 6 speed dual clutch transmission. The new M5 put up a good fight matching the GT-R from a slow roll to over 160MPH, luckily for the M5 they didn’t race from a dead stop where the GT-R’s all wheel drive system would have left the BMW way behind spinning the tires.
