No advanced AWD system and LC will solely account for the differences between observed performance and stated hp numbers. Sure the car launches great, that only buys you some advantage in a drag race.
GT-R: 530 hp (stated), 3829 lb (curb), 7.2 lb/hp
Ferrari 458: 562 hp, 3325 lb (curb), 5.9 lb/hp
That is well over 20% power to weight advantage. AWD and traction control can not make up that advantage in the 1/4 mile.
