they didn't get a speciale, because like always, Ferrari don't like to give their cars out for detail tests with numbers. That's been true for the past few years. And especially if you don't allow them to pre-tune the car out for the specific tests you said you were going to do with it.

In the 911Turbo S video, they tell you that Porsche wouldn't give them a GT3; the closest they could get was the Turbo S with the GT3's more aggressive tires(which I believe are now the same Dunlops as the GT-R)as a factory option. As for the 458, assuming it's available in the US, they may not have been able to get one due to sheer demand for the car; I believe every Speciale scheduled for production is already spoken for, so press cars may be in limited supply.

But, considering that this is Ferrari we're talking about, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they just refused to hand one over for testing because they're assholes like that. If you don't play by their rules, they won't play at all.

@deCT It was a typo error on my part. I have already flagged it as incorrect and asked for it to be revised.

Ehh possible that I'm totally wrong in some point because the huge difference, but whats up with the Laguna Seca Lap-time? Motor Trend just recorded a 1:35.51 with the Nismo, not a staggering 1:13.51 (

I hope this is included in the motor trend bdc competition this year. And where the hell is the track package everyone was talking about?

The german SportAuto Magazine tested 0-100 in 3.4 s and 0-200 in 11.2 s

I heard that it can do the 0-100 in les than 2.5s.

I'm sure the nismo version improves vastly on the track. Also the optional track package or whatever should really help.

Where are the GTR "experts" to chime in on weight? I mean if it still weighs the same because they added some much needed braking/trans cooling improvements then ok. Considering the cars best known for its handling I keep hoping nissan will take care of the issues that plaque the ar on multiple laps in the heat. Who wants to go to a track day and have the brakes overheat or the trans go into limp mode? With all the tech in the car you would think those issues would be corrected by now.

Nissan also claims a lot of stupid stuff, like how it said 0-60mph in 2 seconds!!! And I was surprised how many stupid people there were, actually thinking it could do that JUST because Nissan told them so. When a tiny bit of common sense would have told them otherwise.

LF 1,068Lbs LR 1,062Lbs
RF 859Lbs RR 894Lbs

That equals to 3,883Lbs, Nissan says its lost 220Lbs, But they dont say how much its gained from the added stuff, It may be made from CF, But theres alot more bits that the original TP didnt have, There fore adding to its lost weight.

Nissan was also claiming a 10.5s 1/4 at 130Mph+ i believe, So i find it rather odd they would get the same time as a 2011 GTR....But im sure faster times will come.

177 miles on the odometer?
That might explain the less than stellar performance.

Car and Driver weighs every car on a four scale setup that is regularly calibrated.

If you look at their in-depth test sheets (not always provided), they display the weight at each wheel.

EDIT: Looks like the test that BR2 is referencing does include a test sheet.

Here it is:

The thing that bugs me about this GT-R is the trap speed is managed in the C&D test. 125mph at 600hp sounds a little weak. I know a local guy who makes a little over 500whp in his very lightly modded GT-R and he traps 126mph. It looks as though this GT-R's HP is accurately rated.

@Monday...Of course

Dont blame me, I didnt weigh it, Car&Driver weighed the car, And thats what they got, You no as well as i do theres a huge difference between manufaktur claimed weight and actual tested weight, Its just as CSG said.

No, you're wrong, as usual. Those weight figures are either from Nissan's own spec-sheet, or from C&D's scales. Either way, the NISMO is only 2lbs lighter than the Track Edition. Deal with it and stop making excuses.

Yeah, the exhaust is 22lbs lighter. 20lbs of which is apparently added back by the larger turbos and new aero bits. Carbon fiber or not, they still have mass.

Actually BR2 C&D is wrong as usual the exhaust is 22lb lighter... LOL!

Did they do anything about the brake issues? Seems pointless to add more power if the brakes wont last but a few laps till the fluid boils.
  3 months ago
the point wasn't to save weight, but to add lots of aero, larger turbos, and just more track performance.
