Bizarre Auto Zeitung 0-80 .1 less than 0-100


User avatar

DeDe  11m ago

That's because the 0-80 is an actual measurement, while the 0-100 time is only a claim by Nissan.
Usually the fastest GT-R's are around 3,1-3,2 s 0-100 kph (that's 2,9-3,0 s 0-60mph without, and 2,7-2,8 s with 1-ft-rollout).

I think he was talking about the ZR1 numbers.

User avatar

Fastedee  11m ago @phavyarden

Even going by the 3.3 0-60 3.1 for 50 mph is far too slow. AutoZeitung is very erratic in their results...especially laptimes. AutoBild,Road& Track and Car and Driver are all you really need.Hockenheim is best amongst German track but still biased as DB11 should be similar to GTR as it is at Willow Springs.

User avatar

DeDe  11m ago @phavyarden

Oh I see. 3,2 s was only a once-in-a-lifetime result by AutoBild Sportscars.
They launched the car from 3500 rpm and hit 100 kph in 1st gear after exactly 3,16 seconds. That's the best I've seen for the ZR1.
Most European magazines were between 3,7-4,1 s.

3,16 s 0-100 kph also means that in "US-language" the car did 0-60mph with 1-ft-rollout in approx. 2,7 seconds! :D

Fastedee  11m ago @DeDe

4.1...lol Autobild got 4.0 in a Vantage V12s which is very fast but not in the ZR1's league.

well, the r34 nismo was a much bigger upgrade to the standard r34s in comparison to the nisma gt-r and standard gt-r

Fangio Man  5y ago

That Nismo GT-R, Mental named, sounds interesting. We all know what its "predecessor", the Nismo Skyline GT-R 34 is able to do (it has quite fast laptimes). I hope their results will be compareable...

I don't know what to think of a 600 horse gtr. They better make some major upgrades for reliability. Brakes need a full rework and they need to use a much larger trans cooler to prevent the dreaded limp mode. Owners themselves put in a better trans cooler so nissan would be wise to do the same.

User avatar

Mental  5y ago

I've heard Nissan is going to unveil its Nismo GT-R - "the ultimate GT-R" at this year's Tokyo motorshow. They promise 600 horses and some other improvements... Oh so competition would be even more strained.

gtr is fake and is known to overheat after several launches the new lc updates don't do much if you drive it hard be it at 545hp or 900hp the limp-mode nissan wasn't made to for extreme use like the badass chevy

...This is only the begining, Wait till the C7 StinRay ZO6 comes, along with the R36....If Nissan actually decides to make it, if you all thought the rolling, Fanboyism, Jealousy, Hate was bad on these cars, you better prepare your selves for whats coming.

But as an Advid lover of both Corvettes and GT-Rs, i cannot understand the hate of either, I can definetly understand the Fanboyism(Too A Point) but hate i cannot.

Holly crap!

"Nissan GT-R (Mk 3) is noticeably faster."

How could that happen? Japanese hi-tech takes over true American brutality? That is something unpleasant to see for me as a Corvette lover. Oh, never mind, C7 ZR1 will take revenge. ;)

But shut up all you fanboys! Respect the winner, Vette fanboys, and, you GT-R's boys and girls, try not to be arrogant!

And, you xxLS2xx, make some wrong statement just based on what Clarkson is blabbering. Oh well, obvious troll is obvious.

"yea and vette doesnt have fiberglass OR carbon fiber. just plastic lol and gtr>zr1 still. stop commenting to me troll you have nothing legit to say haha and zr1 just falls apart when you get in it and youre lucky if it starts. none of the gtr but the AC vents is plastic.. lol you fail troll" That came from our friend Alti himself on youtube.

Considering all the transmission issues the gtr faced until 2012, the real pos would be nissans lack of engineering. When it comes down to a race between the two cars its really going to come down to the drivers.

That's more like it.
@ Nope: The Corvette ZR1's engine displacement is 6.2 liters, the Z06 has the 7.0 liter engine.
Very good comparison, the Nissan GTR gave the Corvette ZR1 a run for its money! Both are fantastic cars.

User avatar

Flabernat  6y ago

Fanboys just suck the fun out of a good sports-car comparison... >_<

Same track, same conditions, same driver the ZR1 is faster.
A closer comparison would be the Z06/Z07 & GT-R

GT-R Fanboys: Swinging from Nissan's nutsack since 2008. Even though maybe 2% of them have even seen a GT-R in-person, and 0.2% have driven one, and 0.002% actually own one.

Since i live in Japan, i know few history about "The Legend Of The Red R Emblem":
The S54 4 door Skyline could chase Porsche 904 GTS on GP Suzuka. The first GT-R is scored 33 victories in the one and a half years it raced, and by the time it attempted its 50th consecutive win, its run was ended by a Mazda Savanna RX-3. Second GT-R rumored good for drag race and the most crazy GT-R is R32 model which faster than Ferrari 348 TB on several tracks and could reach 8.20 on Nordschleife faster than Porsche 944 that set 8.45 and when it reach Australia, it killed almost all Holden V8 cars including Ford Sierra Cosworth on 1990 Australian Touring Car Championship. It's look like Nissan has built a serious monster that only few knight that could defeat it. Not surprise if GT-R R35 is fast like hell.

Maybe ZR1 can't beat GTR on few tracks but don't worry! American still had Dodge Viper ACR and SRT Viper GTS. I heard the Viper GTS handling is far more better than old Dodge Viper SRT-10 and more faster. It should be enough to smoke GTR.

User avatar

GT-R is equal fast to ZR1 but only in specific conditions and driven by pro driver.

Driven by just a skilled driver on racetrack: GT-R is far more predictable and easier to controll.

So unless You spend last 5 years of Your life learning how to handle a car on a race track, Nissan will be quicker for You.

Shaggy  6y ago

If the GTR beat the Corvette ZR1 fair and square, fair enough, the C6 is getting a bit outdated for its newer competitors. It's still my favorite car, though.
