The Nissan GT-R has set another record – and Porsche can’t argue with this one. Godzilla has entered the Guinness Book of Records as the fastest accelerating four-seat production car, recording the 0-62mph run in 3.5 seconds.
That’s monumentally quick – especially considering it wasn’t even the stickier-tyred, very-slightly-more-torquey, very-slightly-lighter Spec V.
Even so, other independent tests have reported the stock GT-R going even quicker than three-point-five – we’ve seen data to suggest it’ll go as quick as 3.1 seconds.
Nonetheless, the Guinness record prompted an office debate: what’s likely to ever dethrone the GT-R as the fastest four-seater?
Porsche’s Panamera Turbo will hit 62mph in 4.2 seconds, so they’ll need to come up with something faster. A Panamera GT2, maybe?
And then there’s the Mitsubishi Evo X FQ-400. The fastest X yet will manage the sprint in around four seconds, but what about an FQ-500? Does Mitsubishi have a transmission that could cope with that?
Anyhow, let’s have your thoughts. What’s going to challenge the GT-R’s new record?
