548.4ps = 541hpPretty much as figured, about 540 horsepower at the engine. Not quiet the 15 hp that is in the press releases but we need to see a few more cars, on a few more dynos to really see what the 2013 is making.

Test Results:The car was not as quick as the last 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition they tested. Different days, different conditions equal different numbers. For those kind of people that live and die by the 0.1 of a difference of magazine testing, they might be a bit disappointed. Maybe an over achieving 2012, and a normal 2013.

For 2013, the GT-R gains another 15 horsepower and another 15 pound-feet of torque, plus yet more transmission refinements and a retuned suspension. As you'll see, these modest updates didn't translate to better straight-line performance compared to the 2012 GT-R Black Edition we tested last year (although, our 2013 GT-R Premium test car proved more finicky, shutting down its launch control when it decided its drivetrain bits had gotten too hot).Is the Black Edition actually quicker than the Premium? Do the wheels make that much of a difference? Is this proof that "red is faster".? The Black Edition has red trim on the Recaro seats.

The UK team behind the Juke R apparently didn't seek approval from Nissan's higher-ups before beginning the build, and the unholy GT-R/Juke hybrid concept was apparently born in secret before the unending teasers – see the latest one after the jump – began making their way online.Check out the new video after the jump:
GT-R GETS HARDER WITH TRACK PACK
- Model Year 2012 line-up includes new track-focused edition
- Features designed to improve lap times
- Fully road legal, available to order now
The 2012 Nissan GT-R may well be one of the fastest cars in the world, but its owners are the most demanding in the world. So Nissan has developed a new version of the GT-R for drivers who want an extra edge on the race track.
Called ‘Track Pack', this new version of the GT-R offers a harder edge and yet remains fully road legal.
Externally the Track Pack is easily identified by lightweight six-spoke RAYS alloys with gloss black painted centres.
The brakes behind these are cooled by additional cooling ducts built into the front bumper. These reduce the operating temperature of the front brake discs by as much as 100 degrees during track use, improving the stopping performance. Similar ducts, hidden behind the rear wheels, channel cooling air over the rear discs.
To reflect this GT-R's harder edge, the suspension's spring rates have been revised to be optimal for track use. Like all GT-Rs though, the dampers are adjustable to offer more comfort when the car is being used on the road.
Internally, Recaro front seats are trimmed with blue bolsters and an innovative high grip material to help keep the driver in place during hard cornering and braking. The rear seats have been removed to save weight. A ‘Track Pack' emblem on the centre console identifies this model as a special GT-R.
The engine retains the same specification as the ‘regular' 2012 model GT-R, which means 550PS of power. The 0-60 mph time is just 2.7 seconds.
The Track Pack adds £10,000 to the £74,450 list price of the standard MY2012 GT-R, making it £84,450.
Orders for all 2012 GT-R's can now be taken at any one of the 21 Nissan High Performance Centres around the UK. The first deliveries are expected in March 2012.
