    You're an absolute fool if you think that....and the only reason that would ever happen if is if the GT-R hit it's pre-programmecd speedo cutoff when not on a track. A GT-R without any governing will easily beat a CTS-V from a 10mph roll.

    Are you on absolute crack? More readily modded? That right there is going to cost at least $20,000 without all the necessary drivetrain/suspension mods to support all that.

    You'll be able to squeeze a lot more power out of the GT-R for a lot less money comapred to the V.


    You are so off your kilter here.

    I went home from the bar with a GT-R last night. Not only did I have them time of my life, but I woke up this morning and it was cooking me breakfast and cleaning my house.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    Hey, is that a roll bar I see? Is that going to be standard or an option? I think my kids would love to have a rollbar to swing on after I pick them up from daycare.

    More internet fanboy myth right there. Quote from car and driver:
    Well, the crew at Car and Driver set out to dispel the rumors and set the record straight once and for all. For starters, they called up Nissan and asked about the speed limiter, to which Nissan replied that U.S.-spec cars will be redline limited only, with no electronics holding drivers back.
    For the record I put about 3-4 cars on an RS4 from a roll to 120. A car that has 20 more hp and also super amazing AWD! Parasitic losses of AWD will cause a car to lose to a RWD car of equal spec everytime.


    Are you on absolute crack? More readily modded? That right there is going to cost at least $20,000 without all the necessary drivetrain/suspension mods to support all that.
    Would you prefer cam, pulley bolt on's and a tune for 650 whp and a couple of grand? I was higlighting that those mods exist today, and you would have a bullet proof, proven engine setup anyhow. What mods are available for a GTR? Also - Nissan has stated they went out of their way to make the ECU un-hackable to protect the bottom end and driveline. By the way do you know the auto tranny in the V is rated to 800 lb/ft? If you think the nissan DCT tranny isn't going to puke at hp of that kind you need to put the pipe down.

    You'll be able to squeeze a lot more power out of the GT-R for a lot less money comapred to the V.
    Really.. based on what? Parts that don't yet exist for a GTR? I mean come on, everybody knows how difficult and expensive LSx motors are to mod!(read- sarcasim)

    You are so off your kilter here.
    Maybe, but everything I have stated was based on facts availabe, reasonable deduction, and from research garnered from a potential owner of either car, as opposed to hype and over speculation by people who probably will never own or drive either car.

    Re: Nurburgring 7:59.32

    Just think what the GT-R $25,000 market adjustment would do for the CTS-V in the mod department. Can you say Warhawk and cubic inches? Or maybe coilovers and carbon fiber. The TR-6060 can be beefed up pretty nicely for about $1500 too. It's all irrelevant though because the beauty is at the stock power level, no more power adding is needed aside from induction or exhaust. KEEP YOUR WARRANTY!!!!!! That's my advice. The CTS-V will never be a racecar and it will never be the track equal to a GT-R.

    The more you modify a motor, the more you appreciate the stock configuration if there's enough grunt to start with.

    Leave the modding to the current M5/M3/E55/E63/RS6/RS4 owners to keep up with the CTS-V!!!

    A M5 isn't even a true V competitor so I find it amusing that we're now comparing Vs to Datsuns.

    A two pound loss for the GTR means another return to The Ring to try and lower its time.
    Not sure, but I heard a rumor that the GTR was run without passenger & rear seats & no head rest for driver, no insulation & carpeting, one gallon of gas, sans gas cap and missing a quart of oil, no A/C parts, inner panels and trunk lid removed, no audio equipment, no rearview mirror & no side mirrors, three lugnuts per wheel, no emblems, driver weighed 85lbs-did lap in birthday suit, etc...

    The V3 will probably post just north of 7:00 in 2013, what a great car!
