The new styling inside and out on the new Nissan GT-R makes it a very special car indeed.
Nissan’s comprehensive revamp of the GTR makes it the best yet in every sense.The hand-made, twin-turbo, 3.8-litre, V6 engine moves up to 390kW/612Nm output while at the same time uses less fuel rated at an average of 12.0-litres/100km. For the mechanically attuned engine detail changes are numerous but it’s mostly about more turbo boost. There are larger diameter intake and exhaust tracts and the exhaust system is free flowing. This plus an engine computer re-calibration and altered valve timing. The dual-clutch manumatic transmission has been uprated for quicker shifts and “predictive” operation based on accelerator position. The all wheel drive system is improved offering a drive split of up to 100 per cent to the rear wheels and a torque vectoring function is achieved through electronic controls and limited slip differentials front and rear. Six piston front brakes measure 390mm in diameter and are squeezed by Brembo calipers. Rear brakes a four piston. Bilstein aluminium dampers offer comfort and sport modes and the 20-inch wheels weigh less than before and carry specially made Dunlop Sport rubber.
