0-60 miles per hour. Its a yardstick of automotive peformance. 5 second times were the quick times in the 90's . In the 00's 4 second times were the norm, for "fast" cars, a few cars dipping into the 3 second range. Coming up on the 10's are 2's going to be the new 5's ? This car is modified, but only a few small modifications. A Cobb Accessport , a custom tune, and some K and N air filters.
Take a look at this video showing the 2009 Nissan GT-R ripping off 0-60 MPH in 2.98 seconds on the street as measured by a G-TECH Pro RR performance meter.
