Nissan GT-R still manages 3.9s 0-60 sans launch control

Much noise has been made over the effect of the Nissan GT-R's hidden launch control feature, known to break transmissions and void warranties when abused. The Series II GT-R, due for 2010, won't even have the option to enable launch control, and so the tests to determine the GT-R's accelerative capabilities sans-aids have begun, with preliminary results showing a 0-60mph (96km/h) time of 3.9 seconds is within reach. While that's a far cry from the 3.2-second runs extracted from the hard-launching secret mode, the abuse to the car means that real-world owners won't often - or ever - see such numbers anyway.
