As incredible as this may seem, the brand new, 2013 Nissan GT-R leaves the then-new 2012 Nissan GT-R in its dust. Now, to the casual observer, the idea of a new car being better than its immediate predecessor hardly seems incredible - it's what cars do (or should do, anyway). But when the car being replaced offers such prodigious levels of performance to begin with, it begs the question: How is there any room for improvement?
The original NissanGT-R was definitely good enough, if there ever is such a thing when it comes to super-sports cars. Introduced in 2007, the car codenamed "Godzilla" featured a twin-turbo V6 engine that delivered a whopping 478 horsepower, a mind-blowing 434 lb-ft of torque and a stratospheric top speed of close to 310 km/h.
