Default 2009 Nissan GT-R Updated Official 0-60mph Time

Been awhile since I whored any GTR news..

Quote:
The Nissan GT-R is fast, no doubt about it. In a straight line and around a track but one metric that sticks in everyoneís mind is the 0-60mph time. Itís easy to understand and itís easy to remember. One number for one test.

When the Nissan GT-R launched in 2007 and 2008 it set a new benchmark in performance in terms of bang for the buck. Itís official 3.5 second 0-60mph time was certainly in supercar territory.

Cut to this year when the MY2009 update (US MY2010) comes along offering increased horsepower, slight handling changes and revised software in the transmission control unit (TCM). These changes are now on sale in Japan and are being delivered to GT-Rs in the US and Australia shortly.

Back to the 0-60mph time, given the drastic change with how the car launches itself from a standstill installed in every MY09 GT-R itís only fair to retest the 0-60mph, and thatís what the guys at the Nissan Tochigi Assembly plant have done.

On the 15th of February on the Nissan Tochigi plant test track, Nissanís test driver clocked a 3.3 second 0-60mph run in a standard 2009 Nissan GT-R.

Utilising the new, more driveline friendly launch method, the GT-R was setup in R transmission, R suspension and R VDC modes. Thatís right, VDC was on.

Weíre told the official announcement will filter down through Nissan Japan shortly.

Damn that's fast! I calculated my 0-60 using my datalogger at a trip to Byron. It has a time stamp of the recording and makes it easy to track how long it took for the car to get to 60. My personal best was a 4.82.

Did I say for under 70K? All im saying this isnt that impressive for a AWD car that's practically driven by computers.

you're arguing points are depressing. you say a stock rwd can cut more impressive times. SHOW ME. you wont find many if at all. and a nearly 4000lb car running 0-60 in 3.3 seconds is impressive. i dont care what you have to say or think

Its the fastest 0-60 I know of for the least amount of money... how is that not impressive? Theres always faster cars, and yes even faster ones then the zr1... if money isnt a factor.

The Murcielago, ZR1, S7, Mclaren F1, enzo etc all have similar 0-60 times.

The Veyron is a 4000 pound AWD car does 0-60 in half that time.

while i think its an awesome feat... now the bragging rights for all AWD owners is going to skyrocket when they start magazine racing and benchracing their 0 - 60 times

so only the Veyron, a MILLION DOLLAR CAR, can best the GTR in 0-60. and i'm being general as i'm sure owners have maybe pulled quicker numbers, who knows. but either way, keep trying cause i'll have a response for any of it
