2013 Nissan GT-R Packs More Power, More Price

The Nissan GT-R has long been a world leader in performance-price ratio. While it remains so in its latest form, the price is slipping ever closer to six figures. Godzilla's appetite for power and performance grows, and consumers pay the price.

The redesigned 2012 GT-R received its first major power increase since the model launched. Power spiked to 530 hp from around 485 hp. Just a year later, Nissan found fit to boost the power once again, this time to 545 hp. Torque also receives a lift from 448 to 463 lb.-ft.

That power boost helps provide some notable improvements to the GT-R's performance. The 2013 model breaks the 3.0-second to 60 mph mark, boasting a 2.7-second time. The 2012 model took 3.1 seconds to reach 60 mph. The 2013 GT-R is also expected to lap the 'Ring a little faster - around 7:20.

Other changes include retuned suspension, standard RearView Monitor and a new carbon fiber rear spoiler on the Black Edition.

Of course, nothing is free these days, and the 2013 carries a premium over the 2012 model. The base GT-R costs $96,820 (up from $89,950) and the Black Edition costs $106,320 (up from $95,100).

The 2013 model comes in six colors: Deep Blue Pearl, Jet Black, Solid Red, Gun Metallic, Pearl White and a 4-stage metallic Super Silver.

The 2013 GT-R hit dealerships this week. If you want the extra performance and bragging rights, you'll have to pony up the extra $7K. Otherwise, you might be happier with an older model.
