The driver of a Nissan GT-R has managed to crash his ride recently after doing double the speed limited and eventually losing control of the wheel.
The Nissan GT-R is probably one of the greatest sports cars ever produced but every once in a while we get some sad news involving such a vehicle, like this one, in which the model will probably end up in the crusher, being transformed into beer cans. According to Wrecked Exotics, the Japanese sports car has been driven double the speed limited when it hit a minivan. Happily everyone survived the incident but people we taken to the hospital. The crash took place in Buena Park, CA, United States.
The Nissan GT-R has been in production since 2007 and each year it has been updated, receiving more and more power, which should be enough until the new generation of the model will eventually hit the market. The GT-R has a front engine and all-wheel drive layout and it stands at 4,671 mm long, 1,902 mm wide and 1,372 mm tall since 2011. Power is being provided by a 3.8 liter V6, which is good for 522 HP and 448 lb-ft of torque, for the 2012 model year. The 0 to 60 mph sprint takes 2.9 seconds in this case.
