Video: The Two Second Club – Nissan GT-R, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Bugatti Veyron

Road & Track in the US has released a nice little acceleration video showcase called The Two Second Club. It’s made up of three cars that are able to smash 0-100km/h in the two-seconds range. They include the Nissan GT-R, the Porsche 911 Turbo S and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

Road & Track takes the cars out onto an empty runway strip to put them against the clock in a series of acceleration tests, including the 0-100km/h (0-60mph), the 0-160km/h (0-100mph) and the 0-400m (quarter-mile).

Of course, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport comes out on top with the quickest times, but let’s just have a quick overview of the cars, and their price (if available in Australia):

Nissan GT-R: 3.8 twin-turbo V6, 390kW/612Nm, 1730kg – $168,800

Porsche 911 Turbo S: 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat six, 390kW/700Nm, 1585kg (unladen DIN) – $449,840
