Watch a stock 2013 Nissan GT-R run 10s in the quarter mile [video]

A new 2013 Nissan GT-R (R35) has for the first time embedded itself well into the 10 second realm for quarter mile passes. The highlight of the feat is that the GT-R is completely stock.

Running under favorable weather conditions at the Palm Beach International Raceway, the 2013 model surpassed the 2012's best time of 11.07 @ 124mph with a fastest time of 10.87 seconds at 125.26 mph. This translates into 0-60 mph time of just 2.7 seconds, 60-130mph in 8.89 seconds and peak G-forces of 1.3 G's which were recorded on launch. The figures were compiled by Racelogic's VBOX.

DragTimes.com attributes the performance gain to the GT-R's 2013 model year updates which include more power and torque as well as an updated LC5 Launch Control system. The 2013 GT-R produces 545 hp (406 kW / 553 PS) and 463 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque - an increase of 15 hp (11 kW / 15 PS) and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm) over the 2012 model (U.S. spec).

Brian O'Conner: Ya know, I've been thinking, when you blew up your car, that means you blew up mine too. Dominic Toretto: Yeah? Brian O'Conner: Yeah, so now you owe me a 10 second car. Dominic Toretto: Is that right? Brian O'Conner: Yeah. Dominic Toretto: breaks window to 2013 Nissan GTR Now we're even.

Awesome car for the money. It is also unique enough to be noticed on the road as so many cars look alike. You get so much with this car at half the price. I have had many exotics in the past, other than the engine everything else in most expensive exotics is subpar, i.e. fit/finish, electronics etc. The GTR is worth the purchase

Alamac the Juke is a poor example....you are trying to fit a BIGGER car inside the Juke body so it needs big midifications such as wheel base etc. Also I am NOT talking about exotic materials as others have commented on...simply a prettier sheet metal body which is entirely possible.

It IS the bang for buck deal of the century. I can forgive the styling if the car is that quick (remember it is just a skyline that seats 4 after all...sheesh they want a super exotic body as well for the $$$...Tough crowd to please) A veyron is only .2 sec quicker to 60mph and look at what that car costs.

Amazing speed, shame Nissan stuffed the design. It's looking pretty dated.
