An issue remains, however, as the GT-R does better on a drag strip than it ought to, assuming either 480 HP or the 530 HP 2012 model. There just may be something to the conjecture re the car making more power under way than when stationary and bolted to a dyno.

In Top Gear, they were talking about how the car can launch itself off the line. This can be seen in many comparison videos. It just starts to go full-on with no drama, no wheels spin nothing.. I think the key is, it is putting its power down very effectively.

Also, the peak HP is as important as it is, the HP/torque curve is also important, right?

Edit: Here is the related video:
