He assures us that the 2014 GT-R’s 545 horsepower; its claimed 3825-pound curb weight (our long-term, 2013 GT-R tipped the scales at 3887 pounds); and sticky, run-flat 20-inch rubber will help the car rocket from 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds (our long-termer hit 2.8), corner at up to 2.8 g, and stop from 60-to-0 mph in less than 100 feet, even in the wet!
He says that any changes to this ideal “power-weight-tire footprint ratio” would lead to slower times and less stability. “For example, if we were to lighten the GT-R by 200 pounds, its 0-60 mph sprint time would fall from 2.7 seconds to around 3.3 seconds. And its stopping distance (from 60 to zero) would stretch from 99 feet to around 115 feet,” explains Mizuno. “The ratio we have now is the ideal one. Only this time, our modifications make it an even better car to drive!” stresses the man who answers directly to CEO Carlos Ghosn.

Head over to the Motor Trend article for all the pictures, and all the little improvements that are stacking up for the 2013 Japan, 2014 US Nissan GT-R. Expect to see the US Spec Nissan GT-R very soon, at the LA Auto Show.ASIDE: The new Nurburgring lap time of 7 minutes, 18.6 seconds was in truth 7 minutes, 19.1 seconds. But as another car blocked the GT-R’s progress through one corner, forcing ace driver Toshio Suzuki to come off the gas for a split second, Mizuno’s team calculated that spike in the throttle map to account for a loss of 0.5 seconds. So they subtracted half a second from the 7m 19.1s and came up with 7 min 18.6. Fair? What do you think?

|2013 Nissan GT-R Black Edition|
Since July, I've been fortunate enough to be in some wickedly quick cars, including an SLS AMG Coupe and Roadster, Camaro ZL1, Corvette 427 Convertible, TT RS, Panamera GTS, 911 Carrera S, E63 AMG Wagon and Shelby GT500. I think that under real-world road conditions, though, this Black Edition has got to be the quickest one of them – and not by a little.
The GT-R has been derided as an unemotional car by some enthusiasts – we've heard that driving it is "too easy" or that it's so accomplished that it's boring to go fast in this car. Rubbish. While it isn't as tactile as, say, a 911, the GT-R still demands quite a bit from its driver,A fast car, a fast car on the track should be easy to drive. If it scares you, if you think you might be headed backwards in a screaming flaming death though the next corner, you will drive and be slower. The GT-R has caught the condescending "easy to drive" thing since the R32 GT-R days. Normally its by the guys that own some other brand, and have to prove some other way that their car is superior, or their driving talents are superior.
When asked whether he thinks the GT-R can best the 7:14 claimed unofficially by the Porsche 918, and even beat the 7:12:13 of the Dodge Viper ACR, the “Godfather of the GT-R” nods.“The car definitely has potential. There is quite a bit of margin in those 7 minutes 18 seconds,” Mizuno says and smiles.Since there really are no "official" times at Nurburgring at anything other than a race event, its all a bit of chest beating by the OEM's. Bragging rights. Commercials. Played on tele-vision, and the internets. Either way there are disputes, and a little bit of sandbagging on the numbers. The latest 2014(2013 Japan) Nissan GT-R number was just a little faster than the ZR-1 number.
“This version here already is good for less than 7 Minutes,” says Mizuno-san, pointing at the new track edition of the GT-R. It features a roll-cage, has most of the GT-R’s luxurious interior removed, exposing the bare metal, but features the same engine as the regulation GT-R. The 550 horses of its engine make contact with the pavement using Dunlop slick tires, developed especially for the GT-R.
