A new addition to the 2 second club!

Posted: November 10, 2011 by Adir Hassid in Car Inisghts, Updates in the Car World

When you hear that a car can go from  standstill to 60 miles per hour in only 2.7 seconds, you may think about cars like the 1.5 million dollar Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and the $ 400,000+ Porsche 911 Turbo S. Well, what if I told you that you can join this club for only $89,999 (mere pocket change in comparison to its competitors). Well, the vehicle that  joins this club is not some sort of a new affordable Ferrari or Lamborghini but rather, it is a Nissan. Yes you heard me right I said a Nissan. But this is no average Nissan, it is dubbed “Godzilla” for apparent reasons. It is the 2013 Nissan Gt-R.The 2012’s Gt-r successor. The update between the 2012 and 2013 Nissan Gt-R, is minute, but it is that minute update that helps it break the 3 second barrier. The 2013 Gt-R houses the same 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6, but instead of producing the “usual” 530 horsepower and 448 Lb-Ft of Torque it bumps up the power by 15 on each end. It now produces 545 horsepower and 463 Lb-Ft of torque. The 2013 revision also incorporates more efficient cooling ducts for the front brakes, slip-resistant seats, slightly re-tuned engine, and a Track-Pack option that shaves over 200 pound in weight. As for exterior updates, the only difference is that the under-body aerodynamics have been improved slightly, and new wheels. Rumor has it that the Gt-r will lap the Nurburg’ring faster than 7 minutes and 20 seconds. That’s faster than the Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda F.
