2012 Nissan GT-R
Earlier this week we brought you news on how the launch control feature on the Nissan GT-R is back for the 2012 model year. Known as the R Mode Start Function, the option launches the Nissan GT-R from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds. A video by the folks at ToTheFloor has showed up on YouTube showing the GT-R being launched in R Mode Start a total of four times.

Hit the jump to see the video.

Refresher: The 2012 Nissan GT-R is powered by a VR38DETT 3.8L twin turbo V6 that produces 530-hp and 488 lb-ft of torque. Off-the line performance is also improved with an upgraded ‘R mode’ for the transmission and to control tight corner braking. That allows 0-60 mph to come in at 2.9 seconds. Prices for the 2012 Nissan GT-R start at $89,950 for the base model and $95,100 for the Premium and Black Edition.
