Evo magazine decided to put Nissan GT-R drag line abilities to test. This time against a rival with pedigree: porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet.
The Japanese supercar is equipped with a powerful V6 twin-turbo engine, capable of delivering 550 hp. With the help of a four-wheel drive system, the car si a clear candidate for fast take-off`s, being able to reach 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds.
On the other hand, Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet has less power but is a lot more expensive than the GT-R. Equipped with a six-cylinder boxer that churns out 520 hp, the German convertible can reach 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds. Even if the Nissan GT-R is faster on paper, the things can change on track, in real-life conditions.
Evo Magazine discovered that a perfect launch-control system can overcome the inferior power resources.
