2012 Nissan GT-R Launch Control
The revised 2012 Nissan GT-R's LC4 R-mode start launches from 4000 rpm like the 2009 LC1 original, but with a smoother clutch engagement to minimize wheelspin. These runs resulted in a 0-to-60 mph runs of 3.0 and 3.1 seconds, without rollout. That's a significant improvement over all previous GT-Rs.
