Nissan GT-R races a Hawker Hunter jet aircraft [video]

Organized by Nissan Germany

Nissan Germany organized a race between a 2013 Nissan GT-R (2014MY in U.S.) and a Hawker Hunter jet aircraft.

The interesting drag race between two very different machines took place in Switzerland for "N_Magazine" which represents a publication targeted to Nissan's clients. As you would expect, the Japanese supercar won the race by some margin.

To refresh your memory, the latest GT-R has gone through some changes as its twin-turbo, 3.8-liter V6 engine now churns 550 HP (404.5 kW) and 463 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque. Nissan says the engine provides an improved response from mid and upper rev ranges, while the anti-roll bar, springs and dampers have also been tweaked.

Promising sharper handling and better stability, the updated GT-R hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.7 seconds (0.1s quicker than its predecessor). In the United States it's available in a Track Edition which ditches the rear seats and comes with special braking cooling guides, stiffer suspension, higher-grip front seats and a different front spoiler featuring carbon fiber air ducts.

Nissan guy has a second airbag around his neck! That's a 'good' way to trust Nissan engineers :)
