How Does Nissan GTR Do It???

How does a car weighing 3800 lbs do 0-60 in 2.9 secs at 530HP????.

Are they under-reporting their hp???

Either way, its a fast car on the road and at the track...easy to drive too from what I understand.

All Wheel Drive + 530HP to put all the power down and a 6 Speed duel clutch= Really Fast.

true, Porsche GT2 or turbo should have been there....seems like the GTR putting down ridiculous times due to 4wd and launch control.

It was for an article about "affordable" supercars. i.e. under $100K

If this car was rwd, it will never perform the 0-60 as it does now.

The comparison used a 2011 Z06 and it still trapped faster than the '12 GT-R.

"AWD" is not a benefit. the quickness comes from torque vectoring. thats what makes the awd system in the gtr so different from the garbage awd system you find in an audi s4.

uhm, why would you possibly quote me? Are you saying that I wouldnt rather have a Z06 or that you would not choose the Corvette, either way quoting me isnt relevant. Just makes you look, uhm stupid.
