The 2012 Nissan GT-R is one fast supercar-slaying coupe. And, the big news is that the 2012 Nissan GT-R will come equipped with a new version of launch control. But this time it’s called something totally different, and warranty problems are gone!
This new system appears to do the exact same thing, except for the 4,000 rpm rev-limit which is significantly higher than the last version and the ECU limits the start function to four consecutive runs before its automatically disabled to protect the GT-R’s twin clutches and the rest of the transmission.
First, the driver must place the shift lever to either the “A” or “M” position. Next, select the R Mode with the transmission setup switch, then select R Mode with the VDC setup switch, depress the brake pedal firmly with your left foot and continuing depressing the brake, then press the accelerator pedal quickly with your right foot until the engine’s rpms climb to 4,000 and hold it steady. The official numbers are 0-60 in 2.9 seconds with it activated.
The 2012 Nissan GT-R is powered by a revised engine that now develops 530PS (390KW) at 6,400rpm and 612Nm of torque from 3,200 to 6,000rpm.
