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.

We know you. If someone tossed you the keys to a spanking-new 2008 Subaru
Impreza WRX STI for the weekend, you'd make a beeline for the nearest
winding road leading into the mountains. So would we.
2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT vs. 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Look no further than the hood scoops on the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI and
2007 Ford Shelby GT to find the fundamental difference in their
personalities. It's here that both cars' sense of purpose and ability is
displayed prominently and publicly as a statement of their true character.
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.
2012 Nissan GT-R Road Test
Perhaps you remember the original Nissan GT-R as easy to drive but
uninvolving. Kazutoshi Mizuno, chief engineer for the R35, is fed up with
that attitude. And he's delivered the revised 2012 Nissan GT-R.Subscribe

Nissan Beats Porsche? 2009 Nissan GT-R (U.S.-Spec)
For a few seconds, you give in to the spectacle of driving a 2009 Nissan
GT-R. This car attracts its own entourage and then takes you along for the
ride. It's not just the Skyline mystique, either. It's the fact that even
in production sheet metal, the R35 GT-R looks like a one-off concept stolen
from a Southern California design studio. It has as many hard contours as a
Porsche 911 has soft curves. You have the key fob, and still you ogle it.
Soon, though, you point the GT-R down an on-ramp and plant the throttle.
The effortless brutality with which the 2009 Nissan GT-R gathers speed is
what you'll describe to your friends — once everyone's tired of talking
about the styling, that is.
What you won't tell them is that you suspect your supercar might be a
sociopath. It doesn't flow around corners like your E46 BMW M3 did, nor
does it transmit feedback through the steering wheel for the sheer pleasure
Instead, the 2009 Nissan GT-R bends asphalt to its will. When it talks to
you about tire grip, you get the feeling it's only bothering because you're
part of its great plan to break free of the Earth's orbit. Should it ever
achieve this, you imagine that its conversation will cease and it will
simply expel you into the airless void. Until then, though, you have the

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

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

Nissan GT-R vs Porsche 911 GT2 vs Viper SRT-10 Corvette Z06
Car and Driver Comparison test between Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (E90), Nissan
GT-R, Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR, and Porsche 911 GT2 (997). I consider this
comparo to be uneven because for the price of the 911 GT2, you can purchase
the Z06 AND the GT-R. The Porsche GT2 is undoubtedly the best car here. The
GT-R is also an excellent car.
My personal ratings:
Porsche 911 GT2- 11/10
Corvette Z06- 8/10
Nissan GT-R- 10/10
Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR- 8/10
