New Japanese performance hero: 473bhp, 433lb ft, 192mph and 0-60mph in 3.5sec
17 October 2007

These are the pictures you weren’t meant to see until next week, but the new Nissan GT-R has made an early appearance on the web, and we didn’t want Autocar’s readers to miss out.Due to be unveiled at the Tokyo motor show on 24 October, the new GT-R has had fans – us among them – champing at the bit in anticipation for months.Nissan’s new performance hero has been spotted testing at the Nurburgring more times than we can remember, and a disguised car even made an appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this summer. But this is the first time we’ve seen the undisguised car, and it’s every bit the purposeful machine we were hoping for.We can only reveal a few details for the moment: the GT-R has a twin-turbo V6 pumping out 473bhp and 433 lb ft, it’s got four-wheel drive and it comes with a dual-clutch six-speed automated manual gearbox. Oh yes, and it’ll do 0-60mph in 3.5sec and tops out at 192mph.For full details, plus exclusive images of the car, come back on the 24th. Trust us, it’s worth the wait.
