Nissan GT-R outperforms expectations

When Nissan first released the performance figures for its new GT-R, many scoffed at the unbelievably quick times Nissan were toting - 3.5 seconds to 100km/h and an 11.6 second run down the quarter mile off the showroom floor... right.

However as journalists the world over get their hands on the new GT-R, it seems Nissan has actually been conservative with their performance figures, with auto-magazine Edmunds recording a 3.3 second sprint to 100km/h and matching the blisteringly quick 11.6 second quarter mile at 196km/h - and from only two attempts.

This puts the GT-R well into supercar territory, at less than a quarter of the price.
