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.
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.

Nissan GT-R SpecV Exclusive
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
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.
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.
GT-R vs Z06 vs GT500: 5-Figure Supercar Shootout!
Looking for a 500-horsepower supercar at a
five-figure super deal? Say hello to the 2011 Ford Shelby GT500, 2011
Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and 2012 Nissan GT-R -- three everyday exotics
offering over-the-top performance at under $100K.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

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
