While the original multi-award winning GT-R offered breathtaking performance and exemplary handling, that hasn’t stopped Nissan’s team of engineers and designers from making one of the best even better.
Every aspect the car has been enhanced and improved with the performance from the 3.8-litre twin turbocharged V6 engine boosted by 33kW, to a remarkable 390 kW, while recalibrating the engine’s control module, modifying the exhaust system and fitting a new catalyst have improved both fuel economy and emissions.
A series of subtle but significant changes to the chassis have sharpened the already impressive handling, while new tyres, wheels and bigger brakes also enhance the driving experience.
Subtle exterior revisions have not only given the GT-R a new look, but improved the car’s already world-beating aerodynamic performance. Downforce has improved by about 10% while the co-efficient of drag has been lowered to just 0.26.
Inside a number of changes have been made to enhance the sports luxury feel. There are two versions of the standard car available: Premium Edition and Black Edition. Both are comprehensively equipped, but the Premium Edition exhibits a more luxurious style while the Black Edition, with its standard Recaro racing seats, accentuates the car’s performance potential.
