500 hp 2012 Nissan GT-R : 7:18 at Nurburgring ?



Autoblog reports that the 2012 Nissan GT-R will get an increase in power to over 500 hp to match the newest 911 twin turbo in power and performance.

The Nissan GT-R’s previous Nurburgring lap time of 7:26.7, set a benchmark for performance that was one upped by the ZR1 and the Dodge Viper ACR.  The rumors were that the SpecV had run 7:18, but no official figures or videos were ever released.

Along with the upgrade in performance, they say there will be some aerodynamic upgrades to increase downforce and put this car solidly into 911 GT2 RS Nurburgring lap times.  We will have to see the coverage, and videos that will undoubtedly be released in the coming months.

I think Porsche is tired of Nissan calling them out, so they up the power of the GT2 RS to 620 hp all at once. They never increase that much (90) in one update, they always just increase it by 20~30 at a time. And the GT2 RS is still only 3.6L! It will be fun to see them fighting each other!
