2012 Nissan GT-R with Vid
Four years into its speedy life, Nissan‘s iconic all-wheel-drive supercar gets something more than a mid-cycle facelift and, as such, becomes an even greater thrill. Better air flow through the intake and exhausts along with more boost mean horsepower goes up from 485 to 530, dropping the run from 0 to 60 mph to an almost-unheard-of 2.886 seconds. Rerouting the air through and around the car lowers aerodynamic drag from 0.27 cd to 0.26 cd. Further aero improvements, including a new valence panel out back, increase downforce by 10 percent. Suspension changes make it handle better while being far more comfortable to drive than before, though it stiffens up for performance driving with the flip of a few toggle switches.
