New Nissan Nismo GT-R to Go 0-60 in 2 Seconds

The upcoming 2015 Nissan Nismo GT-R is going to break world records, according to Nissan. The sports car, which will debut this year at the Tokyo Motor Show, is expected to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a flat 2 seconds, which is ludicrously fast—and that may be an understatement.

The current Nissan Nismo GT-R R35 is already one of the top 5 accelerating cars on the market, closing the speed gap in only 2.7 seconds. If Nissan delivers on the new model, it will be the fastest-accelerating street-legal production car in history, putting even the most extreme speed machines in its rearview mirror (the current record-holder is the Ariel Atom at 2.3 seconds, followed by the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport at 2.46 seconds).

Nissan’s has been working closely with Williams Advanced Engineering, the tech group behind the Williams Formula 1 Team, to make this goal happen. One of the Williams engineers revealed that the GT-R still has a lot of potential just waiting to be unlocked with proper tuning.
