Nissan GT-R 2013 sports car revealed: 0-100 kmph to 2.7 seconds

Nissan GT-R has been revealed with a number of upgrades. Improved stability and better performance handling are main highlights of the new GT-R. Nissan says that the new GT-R is capable of lapping the 20.8 kms long Nurburgring in 7 minutes and 18.6 seconds. For the record, Ferrari Enzo has a lap-time of 7 minutes and 25.7 seconds.

Enhancements include engine tuning which has increased power output of the 550 PS 3.8 liter twin turbocharged V6 engine. RPM in mid and upper ranges have been upgraded and tuned so as to provide superior stability and handling at top speeds. An anti front roll bar, changes to dampers and springs as also body rigidity have given this car a refined feel.

The tuned engine ensures that 0-62 mph is completed within a short span of 2.7 seconds. Tuning to such an extent has been achieved by using high output injectors, new oil pan baffle and relief valve for the car. New cam bolts and torque carrying capacity of drive shafts have also been increased considerably. Price for the car will be revealed during launch.
