Japanese automaker tested the upcoming GT-R's 0 to 100 km/h sprint time at the Sendai Hi-land Race Way in Japan last month.

Nissan has seen fit to release a few, spare details on the upcoming 2012 GT-R model.

But it's one of the main items Nissan enthusiasts would like to know about. Namely, the GT-R's 0 to 100 km/h sprint time.

Nissan tested the GT-R's time on the Sendai Hi-land Race Way in Japan a couple of weeks ago in the middle of November and the car returned a pretty impressive result.

Standing start to 100 km/h clocked in at a flat 3.0 seconds.

The Japanese automaker conducted the sprint test twice, once at an outside temperature of 14.9°C (58.82°F) and the other at 18.6°C (65.48°F). Both returned the exact same 3 second figure.

The test was done with a standard GT-R model, with no modifications.

The GT-R comes with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine which produces 530 hp (395 kW / 537 PS) and 488 lb-ft (661 Nm) of torque.
