Top Gear track time

A collage of sharp angles, rounded contours and crisp edges conspires to give the 2013 Nissan GT-R a slippery 0.26 coefficient of drag.

1/4 mile

Our 11.6-second quarter-mile time ties the mighty Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR's, but 13 other supercars manage to squeak ahead of our GT-R's elapsed time.

In front of me is the 2012 Nissan GT-R, and stretching into the fog is the legendary Nurburgring Nordschleife.
