MY11 Nissan GT-R does 0-100 in 3.0 seconds

Nissan GT-R

The arse end of a Nissan GT-R is all you’re likely to see if the driver chooses to plant their foot. When details of the updated 2011 GT-R were released performance data was not published. But when you have a trump card like this up your sleeve, why not make a song and dance about it.

Nissan completed their testing in Japan during mid-November and recorded two 0–100km/h runs of 3.0 seconds on consecutive days. The weather was fine and sunny, with temps in the mid-teens.

Three seconds flat! Surely, the Nissan GT-R has to rank as one of the best bang for buck cars you can drive off a showroom floor.

Finally a car fast enough for my wife, excellent city car for the driving enthusiast who’s other car is a slower porsche with scaffolding in it etc.

hahaha, what’s with the address for this article? : p Like the colour but I think I prefer the look of the original to this mid life upgrade

Yeah I probably shouldn’t have put the 3.0 when creating the article. WordPress drops the punctuation automatically, so shoulda just put “3 seconds”. Oops!
