This sport car’s specifications will be boosted from Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), system that is seen from Formula 1 vehicles.

Top speed records from other super cars, such as Ferrari California and new Porsche 911 are in danger because it is rumored that Nissan GT-R 2016 could go up to 210 mph.
