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
