We knew the 2013 Nissan GT-R was going to be impressive, but now a video is claiming the car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 2.84 seconds.

We knew the 2013 Nissan GT-R was going to be impressive, but now a video is claiming the car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 2.84 seconds.

If that figure turns out to be correct, the GT-R can outgun the Mercedes SLS AMG, the Ferrari 599 GTO and virtually everything else besides the Bugatti Veyron.

As we have previously reported, the 2013 GT-R features an upgraded 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) and 632 Nm (466 lb-ft) of torque. Nissan has declined to release official performance specifications, but this video will hopefully encourage them to step up to the plate.
