This weekend I spent some significant wheel time with a decently modified r35 with built trans.. The way those things move out from a stop is just going to murder anything that doesn't also have AWD and make its shifts so fucking fast... At least at a stop light. 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
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)...
