I would seriously doubt it looking at the 60mph sprints recorded by VBOX by some of the bigger power guys on here.

That's what I think, anything near low 2secs would be an amazing achievement.

yeah that's got to be bollox. it would need a lot more than a few carbon bits and a mild power increase to get down to 2.0 secs.

All details will be released on 19th November at the Tokyo Motor Show I expect

Just remember the press reaction in 2008 when the original R35 was launched, so that was six years ago - a lot of development has gone into the car since and we now have a new head person on the project.

We will have to be patient but start saving your penny's now:eek:

The 2.0 figure has been written by a few magazines but I expect there is a fair amount of over excitement in there.
In an interview I saw Nissan said it's not possible as they had seen the reports.

It's clearly going to be 2.something. But not 2.0 dead.

cant see this being 2.0 - to 60mph we have to pull 2gs to hit 1.92 with slicks..

can certainly see a mid 2 second possibly with advanced gbox launch and boost.

anything under 3 is good, but 2 is a bit of a dream + where the hell could you use it ??

Physics says it is not possible. Yes I expect a 2 point what ever time but 2 dead is not possible with the potential max BHP from the engine. To much lard to shift!

Would be impressive and current time is under 3 seconds already but as John said with other tweaks to the car that might be coming like tyres and better software for the computers (let's face it the launch is about how clever the micro processors are at getting the power down) Veyron matching doesn't seem impossible.

North of £100,000 - I wonder how far north....?
