The revised Nissan GT-R has reached European territory and is already available on order.

Bringing "improved response times, greater stability and even sharper handling", the Euro-spec GT-R has a tweaked V6, 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine pushing out 550 HP (404.5 kW) and offering a better response from mid and upper rev ranges. In addition, further updates were made to the springs, dampers and anti-roll bar.

Thanks to all these upgrades, the latest GT-R is capable of doing the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 2.7 seconds, making it 0.1 seconds quicker than the model it replaces. It was able to do a lap of the Nürburgring in 7 minutes and 19.1 seconds, but the car's creator Kazutoshi Mizuno says half a second was lost because of traffic. This means the 2013 GT-R will do a lap in 7 minutes and 18.6 seconds, making it slightly faster than the 2012MY Euro-spec which does it in 7 minutes and 21 seconds.

In the press release below you will find additional information.
