James May tests out the 2012 GT-R’s launch control. The GT-R is king!
The last minute of the video is our favorite.
Changes to the 2012 GT-R Include. Improved aerodynamics, bigger brakes, tweaked suspension settings, HP jumps from 485 to 530 with a similar bump in torque, some cosmetic additions (LED running lights, new grille, etc), improved interior trim. That’s probably not all, but you get the gist of it. Also, Launch Control returns and is now under warranty. Nissan fixed all the transmission woes on this car after the 2009 US model. Jeremy’s last works on the video are “I Like it. I want it”
Here is a ride along in a 1,500 Horse Power GT-R. Twice the power of the stock one.
