Japanese automaker tested the upcoming GT-R at the Sendai Hi-land Race Way in Japan last month

Nissan has seen fit to release a few, spare details on the upcoming 2012 GT-R model.

But it's one of the main items Nissan enthusiasts would like to know about. Namely, the GT-R's 0 to 100 km/h sprint time.

Nissan tested the GT-R's time on the Sendai Hi-land Race Way in Japan a couple of weeks ago in the middle of November and the car returned a pretty impressive result.

Standing start to 100 km/h clocked in at a flat 3.0 seconds.

The Japanese automaker conducted the sprint test twice, once at an outside temperature of 14.9°C (58.82°F) and the other at 18.6°C (65.48°F). Both returned the exact same 3 second figure.

The test was done with a standard GT-R model, with no modifications.

The GT-R comes with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine which produces 530 hp (395 kW / 537 PS) and 488 lb-ft (661 Nm) of torque.

i so want to love this car,...and actually sincerely DO admire it's technological wonder,...but i fear this car really is headed for the dust-bin of automotive history,...they DON'T SELL THIS THING AT ALL!,...down to 22 a month here in the u.s.,...don't know what other worldwide sales are,...but with those dismal sales figures,...i fear nissan will pull the plug on it's failed "porsche killer" sooner than later,...and this car will be noted with an asterisk as another in a long line of failed attempts to try and de-throne porsches bench-mark 911 turbo as the sportscar king,...sad,...but they seriously can't sustain making a car that has to lose nissan money overall,...car manufacturers are not coddling money losers anymore,..witness the demise of mitsubishes lancer evo,..very sad,...but practical realities dictate harsh monetary decisions nowadays,...porsche ALWAYS kills cars that don't make it money,...and very quickly at that!

GT-R threw some gasoline on the fire, nice to see some competition brewing. Porsche 2011 Turbo S has a 0-60 in 2.7 sec

Big deal, a remapped TT-RS with 420hp has clocked a 0-62 in 3.1 secs on a disused runway without any fancy launch control gizmos

This car is ugly, you can buy a CTS-V for $20,000 less and it has more doors, more room, more horsepower, looks better and it holds records at the nurburgring. And im sure the two door version will beet this around the track.

You guys remind me of Vin Diesel in The Fast and The Furious. "I live my life a 1/4 mile at a time" I guess you guys live your life one 100km/h sprint at a time. You all fail to realize a very simple fact, statistics can be made to prove any point. 0-100km/hr, ok that's one figure where the main factor is grip. What about the rest? And where did you guys get the idea that anyone can get 7:26 or w/e it got on the ring? This car is as complex as any car to get the best out of it. Don't even compare it to the Veyron, you want to compare go based on max speed. 0-320, the Veyron would eat it alive. In the realm where grip doesn't matter HP comes out ontop. To put it simply, the car does what it advertises, and that's it. Just because it has the fastest 0-100 or the fastest lap around the ring for the price doesn't make it the best car. Unless that's all you do. Some people like Porsches/Vettes/we... because those cars offer them something they like. The GT-R offers some people what they are looking for, no car is the best car, the best car would be a combination of many cars, so arguing the point is idiotic. I personally like Porsches, not because of figures, you don't fall in love with a woman solely based on her dimensions. It's an emotion, something that cannot be quantified. Love is not logical, therefore figures are meaningless, and one's preference even more meaningless to argue over. In most cases cars like this are bought for to get an emotion, not to win races or make $ with them.

On the chart you see that 100 was reached only at the 4th index. So perhaps it is 4,0 seconds instead of 3.0?

The reason the GTR is hated is it's turned it's back on the tuning industry which made it great. It was an everyman's car with more power and better handling than the the locals. It is now a supercar and no longer accessible to most people. Also to Aston Martin and Microroice-RS nissan once datsun has produced some of the best sports cars ever seen eg datsun 240Z and nissan 370Z and your opinions are ignorant and useless.

just wait until the corvette fans hear about this! you're going to see really silly comments from then on. i think the boring and characterless comments come from those who simply cannot accept the greatness of this car and throw everything at it but fact is fact, every single car journalist never even come close to the subject that the gt-r is boring and characterless and instead are amazed at it when behind the wheel..how could you call a car boring when it has a twin turbo v-6 at 530hp with a sweet 7 speed box behind the driver to shift weight? daft

Impressive acceleration! This car is so fast my brother used to own a 09 model and I drove it, the acceleration is AMAZING! Together with the Supra, I don't know what secrets about their engins that if you tune them for 150+ hp they will smoke all the supercars easily!

It would be impressive if it wasn’t for the FACT that independent tests in the past have failed to come close Nissans “performance figures” about the GTR.If u believe this,u probably also believe in the Easter Bunny & Santa Claus. German or nothing!

The only thing wrong with this car is that it is a Datsun.

This car is like when the Datsun 240z arrived in the 70's, and nothing compared for the price.

Jaw-dropping stuff! I am just amazed at how this car can get such a quick 0-60 time, thrasing supercars at 3x the price. If you don't respect this car, you aren't a genuine car enthusiast, end of.

I think it's much more powerful than Nissan announces. It must have at least 580 hp

It completely baffles me that this car gets the amount of hate that it does... from supposed "enthusiasts", no less! There's never been a car to offer so much performance for so little coin. It blows away EVERYTHING in it's price point by a huge margin, & there aren't that many road cars that can go toe to toe with it at ANY price either. You don't have to like it, but it demands respect.
