2013 Nissan GT-R starts showing off
Nissan really forces journalist and reviewer vocabularies when it introduces new versions of their GT-R amazing sports car but the Japanese don’t seem to care.
Though without too much fuss, they’ve introduced the 2013 Nissan GT-R at the ongoing Los Angeles Motor Show and interesting stuff hasn’t taken too much time to turn up.
As you’d imagine, there’s nothing fundamentally new but the overly refined 2013 Nissan GT-R got even more fine-tuning to a point where it is incredible.
The 2013 Nissan GT-R uses the same 3.8 liter twin turbocharged V6 engine only it now has a total output of 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque.
As you’d imagine, the slight bump in performance was achieved courtesy of software and small engine components being tweaked.
Apparently, the brilliant launch control system was also given a bit of a nip tuck operation to make the 0 to 62 mph acceleration even quicker.
Some unofficial reports of the acceleration time on the new version of the Nissan GT-R tell us she can do the magic sprint in just 2.84 seconds.
Not sure you’re getting that, considerably under three seconds worth of acceleration with a car that weighs as much as an average four door family saloon.
There’s plenty of suspension tweaks, minor aerodynamic refinements and drivetrain improvements to make for another massive difference in times, only this time, it’s around the track.
Estimates come in at the 2013 Nissan GT-R managing to shave a considerable 10 seconds off its already crazy Nurburgring lap time.
