Age-Old Nissan GT-R Still Faster Than Alfa Giulia QV In Stock Form

By  | 

The Nissan GT-R is one of the best performance cars in automotive history but its aging offerings are no longer enough to defend it against new performance names in the market.

Despite getting updated to offer 565hp from the same 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine, the GT-R is losing ground against the Audi R8, Acura NSX and many others. The latest performance car to hit the market is the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio but this is one car which the GT-R won’t have to worry about.

We say so because the GT-R remains to be faster than the latest Giulia QV, even if it is in its stock form from 2009. The latter has only 480hp to offer and this is about 25hp behind the Giulia QV but its greater handling allows it to remain ahead of the Giulia QV on the track times.

The Giulia QV has completed its run around the legendary track and its attempt ended with the clock reading 7:32. Meanwhile, the GT-R from 2009 with stock tires managed to complete the same track in just 7:29:03.

This is something which GT-R fans can be proud of but it does not mean that Nissan should not bother about developing the next-gen GT-R. The current GT-R is crying for a successor and we are pretty sure Nissan realizes this.
