The 485-horsepower Nissan GT-R is already known for being one of the fastest production cars in the world. Seven minutes, 26.7 seconds was its last record lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany, back in April 2009.

Now, the GT-R has set another important time. It is officially “the fastest four-seater production car in the world in terms of acceleration,” with a zero-to-100-kilometres-an-hour time of 3.5 seconds. Recorded during the lap time at the Nürburgring circuit, this result allowed Nissan to officially register the GT-R with Guinness World Records. The record-keeping company has now sanctioned the result.
