Motor Trend Magazine just welcomed a 2010 Nissan GT-R into their long term test fleet. The $84,040 GT-R drags an extra $2950 from your bank account vs the 2009 model. The minor updates for 2010 are five more horsepower, a new Transmission control computer for the GR6 transmission, new spring rates and revalved Bilstein dampers, darker wheel color, and standard side and curtain airbags.
3.5 seconds to hit 60 and 11.9 seconds at 120.1 mph to eclipse the quarter mile. The GT-R's handling and braking did not disappoint, either, registering 0.98 of maximum lateral grip, 24.4 seconds at 0.81 g through the figure eight, and a scant 103 feet halt from 60 to 0. Perhaps most impressive, the GT-R puts up these astonishing numbers while delivering 16/21 mpg city/highway fuel economy, thus avoiding the gas-guzzler tax (a claim an M3 can't even make).
