Nissan GT-R Sets Guinness Record as World's Fastest Production Four-Seater

Leaving the oh-so-boring Nurburgring lap time records aside for a moment, Nissan's European arm announced that the new GT-R has made its way into the Italian edition of the "Guinness Book of World Records". The Japanese supercar set a world record for the fastest 0-100km/h (62mph) acceleration by a four seater series production car with a sprint time of 3.5 seconds. We remind you that in April, Nissan revealed the GT-R established a new lap time at the Nordschleife circuit in Germany with 7min and 26.7 seconds.

Yeah, the Nurburgring is great and all that, but I'd like to see the "tail of the dragon" closed off a few times each year to see which vehicles perform the best under real world conditions. It actually has more curves than the 'Ring and it would become a handling competition eliminating any speed advantage

What I'm tired of hearing is that the Viper ACR is by far the fastest...we're talking about an out-of-the-box vehicle performing this well. Any modified vehicle (like the ACR) is no different than comparing a race-spec vehicle (F1, Nascar, whatever) with a road-going car - not the same.

Looking at all the tech that is in the new GTR im not surprised its doing as well as it is. Just wait until some established companies start working there magic on it.. Godzilla is reborn.

Also Hennessey performance already has an 800horse kit for sale

*quoted from the Hennessey performance website*
Take your foot off the brake pedal, and you could swear the GTR600 is about to go airborne as it leaves the line. The GTR600 hit 60 mph in a scant 2.9 seconds and reached 100 mph in 6.5. The quarter-mile mark goes by in10.8 sec. at 130.4 mph. Hard to believe, but this thing made the GT-R SpecV feel slow...
