Default 2012 Nissan GT-R Rumored at Over 500-Horsepower


In a bid to keep pace with Porsche, Nissan is rumored to be working on a fresh round of upgrades for the 2012 GT-R. Updates are to include small modifications to the aerodynamics, suspension and brakes, but the biggest adjustment will come under the hood. There, the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 will get added boost to deliver over 500-hp and 450 ft-lbs of torque.

This new package, already being tested in Germany has (understandably) shaved time off the current GT-R's already impressive 7:26 Nürburgring lap time. No doubt, Nissan engineers were working to take back the Nürburgring lap time record from the Viper ACR – which until recently clocked in the record lap at 7:22. That was, of course, until Porsche unveiled the GT2 RS and its 7:18 second time.

Can the GT-R beat that? We bet Nissan's trying everything they can to find out.

an estimate is a guess not a fact. otherwise it would be called an exact.
