MORE NISSAN GT-R SPEC V @ INSIDELINE.COM:
The 2009 Nissan GT-R SpecV breaks the law.
Actually the GT-R has been breaking the law since last year. Before then, the Japanese car industry kept its high-performance cars below a ceiling of 280 horsepower, an unwritten, yet very real limit established by the Japanese government back in 1989.
But the Nissan GT-R shattered the glass ceiling with its 480-hp twin-turbo V6. And now the 2009 Nissan GT-R SpecV pushes even farther past the barrier, further reinforcing the GT-R's status as a true supercar. Just over a year since the car's introduction, Nissan has given a shot of steroids to Godzilla, creating the most extreme road-going machine that Japan has ever seen.
And we've got the test numbers to prove it.

We know you want the numbers and we're not going to waste your time.
Neither is Nissan. Its 2009 GT-R hits 60 mph in 3.3 seconds, quicker than
the last Dodge Viper, Corvette Z06 and Porsche 911 turbo we tested. Keep your foot pinned, and after
another tap on the upshift paddle it will clear the quarter-mile in 11.6
seconds at more than 120 mph.
Skyline GT-R Heaven: 2009 Nissan GT-R Ultimate Road Trip
It's been a long time coming, but there's a white 2009 Nissan GT-R in the
Inside Line Garage (we photographed it with our Ferrari to prove it). In
fact, the keys are in my pocket as I type this. Forgive me if this is a
short blog post, I'm itching to get on the road.
Here's the deal. The car is a PT2 unit, as in pre-production. And it's
right off of Nissan's Arizona proving grounds. Nissan engineer Bruce
Robinson drove it west from that facility yesterday. According to him the
car runs great but has a tendency to drool a little fuel down the side of
the car when you fill it up. He also said we should invest in a case of
octane Booster. "We recommend 93,
but it'll run on 91," he said. "I'd stop and get a few bottles."
And we will.
We officially leave Los Angeles for the Inside Line Ultimate GT-R Road Trip
early tomorrow morning, so check back and follow along as we drive this
all-wheel drive supercar 3,000 miles in three days. First day's
destination? Well, we plan on hitting the El Mirage drylake for some top
end runs. Then we'll turn north and find our way to Sacramento Dragway for
a Wednesday night of grudge match drag racing. We hope to get there about 5
If you live in the area of the California capital city come on out. We'll
even let you sit in the car while you tell us how much you love Inside
Line. If you can't make it, keep checking this page for blogs, photos and
video of our adventure.

Badass 370Z: 2009 Nissan Nismo 370Z @ Willow Springs
FULL NISSAN 370Z @ INSIDELINE.COM:
It's called "The Fastest Road in the West" for a reason. Willow Springs
International Raceway is known for its staggeringly high lap speeds, and it
defines itself with one of the gnarliest, high-speed corner combinations
anywhere in the world: a long decreasing-radius bend from Turn 8 to Turn 9.
And so in an effort to preserve the world's population of auto scribes like
us, Nissan has created a makeshift chicane to successfully emasculate these
corners during our test of the 2009 Nissan Nismo 370Z. Smart move.
Fortunately there are ample opportunities elsewhere on this track to
explore the car's increased performance over the standard 2009 Nissan 370Z.
Namely Turn 6, which apexes at a blind crest and is followed on the
downhill side by a huge midcorner bump that makes the standard Z-car wallow
like a Buick LeSabre over a Wyoming frost heave. It's here that the Nismo Z
In the Sport Z-car we're afraid. Afraid of physics. Afraid that the track
will toss us — like a Buick — into the unforgiving desert. But after a
few laps in the Nismo Z, we're confident. And we're faster. We keep our right foot planted all
the way over the Turn 6 crest and across the bump, gaining enough speed
that a few hundred yards down the track we ingloriously annihilate most of
the orange cones that Nissan deployed to keep us alive. Nice.
