Nissan GT-R that has always been known for its unparalleled performance, now comes with extra horsepower and improved cabin. The new GT-R made its debut at the New York International Auto Show last week and will be launched in September 2016.
Though the 2017 Nissan GT-R features the same 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 powertrain, it is now tuned for additional 20bhp of power and 5Nm of torque. The new power and torque figures stand at 565bhp and 633Nm respectively, thanks to its revised timing control and extra turbo boost. The on-demand acceleration too is better than before, especially above 3200rpm. The new GT-R, with Active Sound Enhancement technologies, roars louder and more exciting. Though at the same time, it gets quieter inside. Features like Active Noise Cancellation and Acoustic glass dampen road and wind noise inside the cabin.
Feature-wise, there are multiple options that not only add more to its luxury quotient but enhance its comfort and convenience level. The car gets premium Nappa leather seat upholstery, new leather-covered dashboard, a centre console integrated 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and 11 buttons instead of 27 switches layout. The seats have been designed with Nissan’s new construction technique that makes them lighter and more comfortable.
On the outside, there are several subtle updates such as a new ‘matte chrome’ grille, re-designed front bumper and lip spoiler, revised hood and more pronounced character lines. The car now drives on 15-spoke, 20-inch alloy wheels that get a slightly different design. The rear profile is accentuated by new vents near the quad exhausts and higher beltline.
