VIDEO: 2012 Nissan GT-R Laps the Nurburgring Over 2 Secs Faster

Nissan gave the GT-R a refresh for the 2012 model year, which included a few styling tweaks, but more importantly a bump in horsepower. The 2012 Nissan GT-2 now puts out 530 horsepower and 488 lb-ft. of torque. That added power now means that the 2012 GT-R can reach 0-60 mph in less than three seconds.

To show how awesome the new GT-R is, Nissan returned to the famous Nurburgring to see if it could beat the time set by the previous GT-R. This time the GT-R managed to complete the lap in 7:27:22, which was 2.48 seconds faster than the old time. This means that the GT-R is faster than the Ferrari Enzo, Porsche Carrera GT and Chevy Corvette ZR1.
