My car pulls harder on top than the gtr I was driving... But at a stop light forget it, I'll be wrestling my shifter and wheelspin and this gtr would be a block away before I'm moving
This.
They range from 485 hp for the early cars to 545 hp for a '13 (530 hp for a '12).
They are an extremely difficult car to beat from a dig. The trans is ruthlessly efficient and they don't miss a beat in either auto or manual mode.
The modded cars run very hard from a roll (60-130), but stock cars aren't overly impressive. I got my ass handed to me in my '13 numerous times by my buddy's bone stock '13 GT500. They are a low-mid 8-second 60-130 car. My own '13 GT500 ran 7.8 (bone stock).
A video from my buddy's car...mid 10-second GT-R on E85 (first run is against me)...

i always felt the GTR (at least the early ones) had a dead zone in power. Seemed like it would be when the cam's were fasing. Not a loss of power, just didn't feel like a gain in power for 1k rpm or so.

Snor is right though, from a Dig they are ruthless...and they are crazy consistent. Pulled away from a 458 CS, with 3 adults in the GTR...both stock.

If you write a $105k check for this car... You'll be lucky if you get $50k back in 36 months.. Thats assuming low miles, and youve kept it mint.. $40s if it was a daily driver.

I was quoted $1388/mo on a $106k msrp car, for 39mo lease.. But you add back taxes,etc,etc, and your pretty darn close to $1500
If you let someone else take the big depriciation hit first, do you get "taken to the cleaners" on cost of maintenance with stuff breaking? If yes, is it a "hit and miss", or does it happen with pretty much all of them?

My friend just took delivery of his M5 , delayed at port for them to replace oil pump pre-delivery. The car is a beast, fast, tight, luxurious and probably the most confidence inspiring car I've ever driven. I, and I think he, prefer it over his 2012 Alpina B7. Good luck finding park on the SMG though.. lol.
