2012 Nissan GT-R Won Motor Trend’s “Best Driver’s Car” Drag Race Showdown

Press Release : Nissan GT-R Turns It Up to 11 in Motor Trend Magazine’s “World’s Biggest Drag Race”

The top 11 supercars were considered among the best sports cars in the world including Porsche 911, Corvette Z06, Ford Mustang Boss 302, Ferrari 458 Italia and Audi R8 GT, to name just a few.  These cars were selected to participate in an event that was assembled by the editors of Motor Trend for an informal, bragging rights-only drag race as a sidebar to its 2011 Best Driver’s Car award, announced on motortrend.com today, and cover story for the November issue of Motor Trend magazine.

All participated vehicles were run at factory recommended settings, with standard or factory optional equipment.

The winner was the 2012 Nissan GT-R which features 530 horsepower and 448 lb-ft of torque. The $89,950 Nissan GT-R was followed across the quarter-mile finish line by the $225,325 Ferrari 458 Italia and the $198,600 Audi R8 GT.
