Check out this video from Autobytel of their recent test of a 2014 Nissan GT-R. They say Nissan claims 2.6 0-60 and 10.6 for the quarter, which is off a bit. Motor Trend just did 2.7 and 11.0 in a Track Edition, which is the fastest GT-R they have tested to date. White with the amber red interior. This must be the same car that was at the recent auto shows. Watch the video below.
Oh Godzilla how we love you so! And now Autobytel finally gets to test drive this beast. The 2014 Nissan GT-R is easily one of the fastest production cars on the planet only eclipsed by the super high end exotics that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. For the money though, the GT-R is a bargain considering you get 545 horsepower for only $99,590. Sure there are cars more powerful costing less, but can they run 0-60 MPH in less than 3.0 seconds?Most people do not consider the 2014 Nissan GT-R a very pretty car. In fact many may argue that the GT-R is one of the least sexy sports cars on the road. That's fine because the GT-R's designers are more concerned with function over form. Everything you see on this car, every crease, every duct, every line; is designed to make the Nissan GT-R faster. Up front the design is maximized to make the air flow faster. There are ducts in the hood to provide fresh air, the headlights are flush and extend a ways back, and the ridges in the bumper all move air in a specific way. On the side there is a unique cut that coupled with the mirrors and roof tunnel air to the back of the car through the spoiler.

This beautiful work of art was hand built in Japan. The engine produces 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft. of torque. Power is sent through a dual-clutch 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The ATTESA E-TS is and AWD system works with Nissan's Vehicle Dynamics Control to help with handling and torque split.On the inside the 2014 Nissan GT-R Premium is incredibly comfortable.

The information screen on the center stack is fully customizable allowing the driver to monitor a whole bevy of performance figures.Once you are finally driving the 2014 Nissan GT-R, you realize this sports car is something special. The power and pull is amazing and Nissan claims 0-60 MPH happens in 2.6 seconds with the ¼ flying by in 10.6 seconds which is Bugatti Veyron and Lamborghini Aventador territory.
