Video: BMW M5 vs 2012 Nissan GT-R

July 7th, 2011

Here is a quick race of a 2012 Nissan GT-R racing heads up vs a BMW M5. The M5 gets the jump but it isn’t enough with the GT-R getting to 60 MPH in under 3 seconds. The 2012 GT-R is powered by a V6 Twin Turbo pumping out 530HP vs the M5’s 500HP naturally aspirated V10.

The race might be closer when the new BMW 5 debuts in a few months sporting a V8 Twin Turbo Motor pushing out 550+ horsepower, although without all wheel drive, the BMW will still be lagging behind with wheel spin.
