Revised GT-R scorches from 0-60mph in under three seconds.

Nissan has announced how fast the revised 2011 GT-R can sprint from rest to 62mph. The new car has been clocked officially at 3.0-seconds, making it just half a second slower than a Bugatti Veyron over the timed sprint.The £69,950 GT-R is also a useful 0.6 seconds quicker from 0-62mph than its great rival, the PDK-equipped Porsche 911 Turbo, which will set you back £108,479. The GT-R’s acceleration time was measured at the Sendai Hi-land Race Way in Japan on November 12th. Nissan even went to length of publishing the weather conditions, which were sunny with intermittent cloud. The first 3.0-second run took place when the temperature was 14.9°C, while the warmer 18.6°C conditions later in the day had no effect on the speed run, with the car posting an identical 0-62mph time. The 2011 GT-R features a number of enhancements over the current car, including tweaks to the styling and suspension, and a hike in power for the 3.8-litre V6 from 478bhp to 523bhp.
