The Nissan GT-R gets to 60 in 2.7 seconds. That's fast. Nissan doesn't think that's fast enough. Rumor has it a Nismo tuned version is coming to Tokyo this year that will get to 60 in two seconds flat. Holy hell.
Insiders told AutoExpress that the car in question, the Nismo GT-R, is being developed with help from Williams. Yes, the Williams of F1 fame.
There is no word on how exactly they'll achieve this insane acceleration, but I have my ideas. I bet they take out some of that weight, add some of that sweet sauce we call horsepower, put some more tire on it, and call it a day.
Or does it go hybrid with Williams' flywheel system? Or is this all just a made-up rumor and we'll never hear more about it?
We'll find out at the Tokyo Motor Show.
