2012 Nissan GT-R
Nothing rivals the 2012 Nissan GT-R's performance, even vehicles with five times the sticker price. That makes taking this car 0-60 in under three seconds even more exciting. Its blistering performance begins with its 545 horsepower twin-turbo engine producing 448 pound-feet of torque. An all-wheel-drive traction system and large tires make sure it's balanced, even at epic speeds.
The videogame feel of shifting through the six speed transmission does more than quiet down those critics who say a sports car must be powered by a V8 or V12 engines. Inside, it has a unique cockpit feel, provided by center-stack controls angled toward the driver and heavily bolstered seats.
Unlike common sports cars, the 2012 Nissan GT-R has room for passengers, even a backseat with legroom. It also has a trunk with considerable cargo space, truly putting it ahead of its cramped competitors.
Standard features on the GT-R Premium, the base model, include stability control, a Bose® audio system, perforated leather seats, a DVD navigation system, and plug-in USB connectivity. Outside, it shows off 20-inch super-lightweight forged-alloy RAYS® wheels with knurled bead area and integrated LED running lights.
Designed for the extreme car lover, the GT-R Black Edition adds special black wheels, dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler, and red and black Recaro® interior. At the heart of its performance is the 2012 Nissan GT-R's innovative system of switches that lets you define your driving experience. With the flip of a switch, the transmission can be put into R-MODE for maximum performance with the quickest shifts. Normal Mode allows the car to drive with maximum smoothness and the Save Mode lessens the torque for long-distance driving or slippery roads.
Since it's a Nissan, you know it will be equipped with the top safety features available. Side airbags, curtain airbags, and an available rearview camera show the 2012 Nissan GT-R's hidden, more cautious, side.
The GT-R is, above all else, raw power. The 2012 Nissan GT-R proves that astounding performance can be attained without breaking your budget.
