2010 Nissan GT-R R35 ... Number 1 Sports Car
2009 International Car of the Year.
The Nissan GT-R has been rated the coolest trend car of today by the very famous german car magazine "Auto Bild".
Nissan claims the GT-R can reach a top speed of 192 mph (309 km/h), Motor Trend recorded a top speed of 195.0 mph (313.8 km/h). It has been tested to achieve 0-60 mph (97 km/h) times as low as 3.2 seconds with launch control and 3.9 seconds without (improved to 3.5 seconds in models produced since March 2009). Autocar achieved a 0-100 mph (160 km/h) time of 8.5 seconds.
With a manufacturer claimed lap time of 7:26:7 min on standard Japanese market tires, the GT-R is currently one of the fastest production cars to lap the Nürburgring circuit.
The GT-R currently holds a lap time of 1:19.7 around the Top Gear Test Track, equalling that of the Ferrari 430 Scuderia.
Road & Track were able to achieve quick lap times with the car on Buttonwillow Raceway, clocking in approximately 5 seconds faster than the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Porsche 911 turbo.
On Willow Springs International Motorsports Park, Edmunds were able to achieve lap times that were approximately 1 second slower than a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with the GT-R.
Several automotive journalists, including Chris Harris of Autocar, Jethro Bovingdon of Evo, and Jason Barlow of Top Gear (magazine) have compared the GT-R to the Bugatti Veyron. Harris and Bovingdon both labeled the GT-R a "baby Veyron" in their respective comparison tests of the car.
The production version of the GT-R debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, launching in the Japanese market on December 6, 2007. The U.S. official launch was 7 months later on July 07, 2008. Universal Nissan in Los Angeles provided a customer with the delivery of a new GT-R, fresh from the production line at 12:01 AM, on July 7, 2008. The Canadian launch was also in July 2008. Europe became the third consumer market, where it launched late in the year. The large disparity in initial marketing between these regional releases is due to Nissan having to build GT-R performance centers where the car is serviced. Also the engine and rear-mounted dual-clutch gearbox are built by hand, thus limiting production to around 1000 cars a month.

2010 Mazdaspeed3 vs. Volkswagen GTI review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Mazdaspped3 and the Volkswagen GTI are about as hot as hot hatchbacks get. Both have what it takes to make you a winner on the road and on the track, but which one is the better car? That's the question that we ask and answer in this review of two of the hottest and most affordable cars on the road.
2013 Nissan GT-R Review by Jay Leno - Grande Prairie. AB - www.gpautogroup.com
Based on this video it is clear to see that Mr. Jay Leno is emotionally involved with this car.
Nissan has mostly focused on improving the car's performance for the 2013 model year, so the exterior and interior have remain largely unchanged. The changes that did make the cut are mostly for the interior. Nissan has updated the inside of the GTR to create a more sophisticated atmosphere. This was done by adding blue lighting inside the tachometer ring to match the shift position indicator light and exchanging the Bose sound system woofers to Bose Precision Sound System woofers.
The suspension system has also been revised to be optimal for track use, while adjustable dampers offer more comfort when the car is being used on the road.
This will be one of the lightest GT-R models offered due to the fact that it comes in a two-seat configuration: the rear buckets have been removed to save weight and the front seats have been replaced with lighter Recaro racing seats trimmed with blue bolsters in a high-grip fabric.
The 2013 Nissan GT-R is powered by the same twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine found on the previous model, but with the output increased to 542 HP at 6,400 rpm - an increase of 12 HP over the current model - and 466 lbs-ft of torque delivered from 3,200 rpm all the way up to 5,800 rpm. Despite the extra 12 HP, Nissan is promising that the 2013 GT-R will be more fuel efficient.
Engine response and torque at mid- and low-speeds, and power at high revolutions, has been significantly improved, mainly due to:
■Improved intake efficiency
■Better air flow resistance, which has been reduced by the addition of an intake manifold fitted to the head of each unit and the use of resin in the enlarged air intake duct for the Intercooler.
■Improved Exhaust emissions efficiency and enhanced control.
■Reduced air flow resistance thanks to a more compact under floor catalyzer which improves emissions efficiency and reduces weight.
■Improved Exhaust valve cooling performance by the adoption of a newly-designed metallic sodium-filled valve. At the same time, valve control timing, the air mixture ratio and ignition timing have been improved.
The engine is mated to an improved transmission as well. The shift feel and quietness have been refined through a strengthened design of the shift fork arm and a firmer fixing bearing for the flywheel housing. Also, all versions will be offered with a high-performance differential oil R35 COMPETITION type 2189E.
Another significant improvement is the new asymmetric suspension which is similar to the one offered in racing cars. For the front suspension, a harder spring rate on the left side has been set and for the rear, the suspension arm has been installed upward on the left side and downward on the right for an imbalanced wheel load when the car is stationary, but equalized during driving. This provides improved responsiveness and smoothness which the driver feels when steering, as well as enhanced cornering stability and riding comfort.
The GT-R Premium Edition and EGOIST will also be offered with NCCB (Nissan Carbon Ceramic Brakes) that help accentuate the car's agile road hold and supple ride feel.
Some of the top competitors to the Nissan GR-T are:
BMW 6-Series, Ferrari 458, Porsche 911, Maserati GranTurismo, Chevrolet Corvette, Audi R8, Lamborghini GallardoRating: 8.4Compare, Jaguar XK , Ford Shelby GT500, Aston Martin V8, Lotus Evora, Mercedes-Benz SL

Nissan GT-R Engine Assembly
Here are some quick scenes from the Nissan Yokohama engine plant's Clean Room. It takes an average of 100 minutes for an engine master to assemble one engine. Each man diligently checks and records the torque spec of every critical nut and bolt, and the data is stored for the life of the engine.
