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.
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.

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.
Chevy Camaro SS Rips It Up with 13 sec 1/4 Mile!
FULL Camaro COVERAGE @
The last thing General Motors needs right now is to appear as if it's stuck
in the past, creating gas-guzzling cars that are out of step with what the
federal government thinks is the future.
So even when Chevrolet steps into the way-back machine to unveil the
426-horspower retro-inflected 2010 Chevy Camaro SS, it's careful to
mention that this muscle/pony car is the "sports car for the 21st century"
and emphasizes the Camaro's fuel economy ratings
more than its 0-60-mph performance.
So we did what had to be done. We dropped an asphalt-melting burnout in the
parking lot of a former seminary that was of such destructive length that
the guys hired by Chevy to prep and clean the Camaros had time to wander over
and say, "Stop. You're done."
Had a Dairy Queen been available we would have laid a patch in front of
that, too. Look, man. We've been waiting for years for the arrival of this
car; there will be time to talk about balance and the quality of the
interior materials later.

Nissan GT-R Switzer P800 - Dyno run with backfire!
I've received the video from Totalcarconcept.com of the Dynorun! The Switzer P800 kit
turns the GT-R in to a 800 HP monster. With a few PSi more Boost the 840 HP is no problem. They have 98
and 100 octaan fuels. The AMS sportcats are much bigger and give good
power, also with sportcat! It's possible, they can do it! :)
