Next-Gen Nissan GT-R to Put Down 800HP?

Rumor

Hybrid system on R36-gen GT-R will help with torque fill and boost output to around 800 horses.

That the next-generation GT-R is coming with a hybrid powerplant is old news. We also knew the R36’s use of electrification would make it more powerful than the current R35. However, now we are being lead to believe that the combined power output of the familiar 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 and a KERS-like system developed with Williams, will be in the region of 800 horsepower. That’s according to a Japanese magazine who posted an unofficial rendering of the new supercar killer.

The R36 GT-R will sprint from 0-62 mph in just 2.7 seconds, hit the quarter-mile in around ten seconds and have a top speed of 211 mph. A price tag of between $120,000 and $150,000 is expected when it hits dealerships in 2016.
