The cover claims a 0-60mph time of just 3.5 seconds which is well into supercar territory, yet a price tag under US$80,000 could make this the most desirable bang-for-your-buck car in the world.

From the showroom floor the GT-R is expected to run an incredible 11.7 second quarter mile, with a top speed of 302km/h achieved through a popularly speculated twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 power plant mated to a dual-clutch gearbox with the latest ATESSA all-wheel drive setup.
