2017 Nissan GT-R

Unlike its predecessor, the 2017 Nissan GT-R now pumps 565-horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.8L V6 engine, an increase of 20-horsepower, mated to a dual-clutch 6-speed gearbox. You also get a new Titanium exhaust system with "Active Sound Enhancement" to give it more of a bark outside, while "Active Noise Cancellation" keeps things quiet in the cabin. Speaking of the interior, the paddle shifters are now steering wheel-mounted, enabling drivers to make mid-turn gear changes without having to move their hand position. Click here for more pictures of the 2017 GT-R. Continue reading for two more videos, including one focusing on its incredible engine.

2000HP Nissan GT-R

Sure, the Bugatti Veyron may have over 1000-horsepower, but T1 Race Development's Nissan GT-R has more than twice that. You ready that right, their "record-breaking machine," delivers a monstrous output of 2,276-horsepower at 9,332RPM and 1,335 lb-ft of torque at 7,484RPM to the wheels. All of this power is good for a 7.6-second @ 187mph quarter mile time and a standing 0-186mph in 9.6-seconds on street tires. Continue reading for two more videos and additional information.

Nissan Juke-R 2.0

This followup to the original Juke-R may look similar, but it's definitely no slouch. Powered by a 3.8L twin-turbo V6 from the GT-R NISMO that produces 600-horsepower, this family crossover has been given new life as a performance vehicle. There's plenty of carbon fiber components on the exterior, including the bumper and a set of winglets. To keep things stealthy, it was given a matte black paint job. You can see it in person at the Goodwood Festival Speed this weekend. Continue reading for a video and more information.

Criminals beware, as this awesome Nissan GT-R police car might be one vehicle you won't be able to outrun. According to HiConsumption, "the 2-door sports car has even been equipped with a set of flashing red and blue lights complete with sirens." The Dubai police car fleet might be its only rivals.

Speeders beware, as you probably won't be able to outrun this 2012 Nissan GT-R turned undercover police car by the EVI Corporation. It features "a full range of blue and red flashers as well as the standard strobe treatment for both the headlights and taillights." Videos after the break.

According to the word kicking around the web, this GT-R showed up at EVI with a mere 13 miles on the clock, meaning its as fresh as a fallen snow.

No matter how fast you think your car is, stupid antics like trying to pass someone on a narrow street should be left for the racetrack, otherwise accidents like the one you're about to see could happen (or worse). Simply put, this Nissan GTR driver was trying to overtake a car, when suddenly, a wheel fell off, causing it to crash into a row of parked cars on the streets of Moscow. Videos after the break.

Similar the standard model, the 2012 Nissan GTR Black Edition "packs the same 530hp but adds red-trimmed Recaro seats, red and black interior, and different wheels." Videos after the break. Click here for the first picture in gallery.

Emerging after an extensive list of focused upgrades and refinements, the sports car demonstrates poise, confidence, authority and continues to show no signs of fear. We'd go so far as to argue the GT-R finally possesses something that it lacked in the past: character.

Nissan revealed their revamped 2012 GT-R at the LA Auto Show today. Upgrades include "increased boost from the twin turbos packed into the six combustion chambers along with larger inlet and exhaust pipes." These modifications enable the car to hit 60mph in under 3-seconds. Pricing will start at $89,950 and go up to $95,100 for the Premium and Black editions. Video after the break. Click here for the first picture in the gallery.

All models get new and improved Rays wheels, and a new Black Edition sees darkened six-spoke affairs along with red-trimmed Recaro seats that should look pretty darn nice with the new across-the-range carbon interior highlights.

These images are purportedly of Nissan's 2012 GT-R, which features "a revised front fascia complete with new (and sure to be controversial) LED driving lights frenched into new canards at either corner of the front bumper, lowering the car's coefficient of drag from 0.272 to 0.268." Click here for more pictures.

There's also a new rear diffuser that adds 10 percent more downforce at the business end and a set of forged wheels from Rays cut 6.6 pounds of unsprung weight at each corner for a total loss of over 26 pounds.
