Default 5-60mph (please read)!!!

I was wondering does anyone have and stats on the GTR 's performance from 5-60mph. This would of course be without the advantage of the launch. I have a semi-friend with a 2004 lambo gallardo and he said that he would smoke me from a roll. He said hed be willing to bet a z06, viper and many others would also. How true is that? I know we still have a shit load of hp and torque and traction. I still love the GTR and know there are a lot of haters out there and I cant wait for my GTR to come in!!!

That data is based on street racing. There are no private US-spec GTRs in the US at this time to test for that type of data....soon. Automobile magazines and other organizations don't generally do this type of testing in a controlled environment. Sadly, your friends will have to wait with the rest of us to prove their theories on how much quicker the Z06, viper, gallardo, 997 turbo, EVo , STI, etc will be in a street race.

There are videos (Gallardo included) on the internet (YouTube) that can show races between some of the above vehicles.

It's all 'arm-chair' racing...just speculation. Your friend with the Lambo has nothing to be insecure about....Lamborgini only makes amazing automobiles.

That true. It is an absolutely beautiful car the lambo.. Also it cost him 165k used. I was reading a good post on the other gtr form. It really explained the difference bt the vehicles during a roll. Great read. gtr is simply the best auto in the world for 80k.

I think after reading many articles the simple fact is that the gtr when driven by the "normal driver" will out perform the porsche 911, gt3 and the corvette zo6. The car can consistently be driven around a track or down a 1/4 mile race and produce very similar times with novice drivers. The ZO6 and porsches models need expierienced if not profesional drivers to get the same results. Plus lets remember the other cars are more expensive than the GTR. If we put 8k into a GTR for performance and made it the same price as a ZO6 then the car would be phenomenal. In comparison to the other cars we are unique and there are not 1 million of them on the road. Im extreamly happy with my 80k decision.

We have tried them all in Hong Kong. Our conclusion is anything below 220km/hr the GTR is immortal. Its four wheel drive system and the tires provide so much traction and lightening response in acceleration compare to others. and the speed of the DSG gearbox will equal, if not defeat them. Only above the 230mark weight will start to show it burden. Have confident the GTR is one of the fastest and responsive car in the world. Its king of the public road.

sorry what do u mean by vid?

btw few of my friends with GTR will be going to a track day held at the Shanghai F1 Circuit, i am very eager to know how the lap time is going to be compare to other supercars, there will be many others like P997GT2, RS Fcars like 360 430 etc. by mid june i will come to know and will share with u guys. This is a high speed track end of the main straight can reach 280 with a GT3, let see what the GTR can do there......

let me see if i can still find the drag race (rolling start on highway) between a 430 and GTR clips, they were posted on youtube for a while but i think it deleted the link cause they didnt cover the license plate.........they have dont the same with other cars as well and concluded that the GTR was the fastest until it reaches 220.....that instant response is unique to the car.....

new car and driver has it beating the porsche 911 turbo.

rolling 5-60 gtr = 4.3
911 = 4.7

they had incredibally slow runs for some reason
gtr 1/4 mile = 12.1
0-60 = 3.6

i need to read the whole article (tonight) it is gtr vs 911 vs m3
they liked the m3 for some insane reason i think it boiled down to space and fit and finish. i really dont care about that.

04 Gallardo is great but 07 or 08 shifts faster and has more horse power and torq. If it is e-gear its would be a little slower in a 04. As times posted with GTR it should kick the Gallardo ass. It also should beat the lighter version the Super G and the 09 LP-560 Gallardo. It should be a good race against the Lambo Murci LP-640. The LP-640 has a launch mode like the GTR. I will let you guys know how it compares to these exotics. I'm a car fanatic and have owned a Gallardo, LP-640 and Mclaren SLR and I just can't wait to get the GTR to rip on it.

I raced against a slightly modified 997 Turbo (exhaust, ecu re-mapping, etc.., which makes 600 HP).
Rolling start, 20 mph. The GTR lost......not much (a bit more than a car's length) by the time i hit the 111 mph limiter.
