NISMO®-tuned 600-hp, 3.8-liter, high-capacity twin-turbocharged V6 engine
Press the Nissan GT-R® accelerator and you feel more than raw power. The 600-hp twin-turbo V6 may be massive in strength, yet it’s highly refined, even earning ULEV-II emissions rating. Rather than traditional cast-iron liners, each cylinder features a unique plasma coating on cylinder walls, with an independent intake system for each bank of cylinders. The powerful twin turbo takes advantage of a Premium Midship (PM) design for balance, where much of the engine sits back in the chassis. Uniquely brilliant, built to perform.
Dual clutch 6-speed transmission with three driver-selectable modes
Two clutches, no clutch pedal. The GT-R® 6-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission shifts as quickly as 0.15 seconds when in R-Mode. Inside are separate clutches for the odd and even gears. When in an odd-numbered gear, the adjacent even-numbered gear is “pre-selected,” ready to make the shift immediately. Then, to achieve ideal front-to-rear weight distribution, the GT-R® clutches, transmission and transfer case are mounted in the rear of the chassis, creating the world’s first independent rear transaxle for an All-Wheel Drive vehicle.
ATTESA E-TS® All-Wheel Drive (AWD)
Instead of the traditional 50/50 torque split between front and rear axles, GT-R’s electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive system provides nearly all of the available torque to the rear wheels, and can send up to 50% of torque to the front wheels. This provides the steering feel and response of a rear-wheel vehicle, while giving the added confidence that only AWD can offer.
NISMO®–tuned suspension gains force with Bilstein® DampTronic® components that use computerized control to continually adjust shock absorber damping. The system has three driver-selectable driving modes and constantly monitors vehicle speed, lateral acceleration, torque, engine rpm and braking behavior to help provide the ideal ride/handling balance. To match the precision of the other GT-R® suspension components, high-accuracy progressive-rate springs were developed and manufactured to extremely high tolerances.
Advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with three driver-selectable modes
Most stability control systems cut engine power or apply the brakes when they sense a loss of control. That's fine for the road, but slow going in competition conditions. While cornering with the advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system in R-Mode, it actually sends more power to the appropriate wheels when it senses oversteer or understeer, helping to keep it on the steered course, a much quicker way to go in track conditions.
Front spoiler with carbon-fiber air ducts and additional front/rear brake cooling guides
Heat: mortal enemy of the braking system. To help dissipate the extreme heat generated in the brakes under track circumstances, the GT-R® NISMO® has carbon-fiber air ducts in the front spoiler to feed the front brake cooling guides. We’ve also added cooling guides for the rear brakes.
Multi-LED headlights with signature lighting
A GT-R® exclusive, signature wide-beam headlights offer increased illumination towards the sides of the front of the car and when cornering. The four LED units project a natural looking light and even adjust their illumination pattern based on vehicle speed.
LED Daytime Running Lights
Make a visual statement with powerful LED Daytime Running Lights. Twelve high-intensity lights enhance the look of your GT-R® and increase vehicle presence when the headlights are off.
The Nissan GT-R® sports efficient, high-intensity, multi-LED headlights that create a distinctive “lightning” motif, generating a striking exterior visual signature. With such a unique visual reference, the GT-R®’s road presence is enhanced, particularly in low-light and at night—while the fitment of the new headlights help give the driver increased visibility. At the rear, the GT-R’s distinctive four-ring tail light signature now forms coherent circles of illumination, giving the GT-R an equally distinctive appearance, making it easily recognizable to fellow owners and enthusiasts.
NISMO® Black 20" super-lightweight RAYS® forged-alloy wheels
For once you won’t want to give them the slip. 20” super-lightweight forged-alloy wheels have knurled beads that help keep tires from slipping around the wheels under hard acceleration.
Exclusively developed tires, nitrogen-filled at factory
Consider everything you expect from a tire—great grip, smooth ride, consistent performance—then add the necessity of taming 545 horsepower along with one of the most advanced powertrains and responsive suspensions Nissan has ever built. The Dunlop® SP Sport MAXX GT600 DSST CTThigh-performance tires are filled with nitrogen, rather than conventional air, because nitrogen significantly reduces pressure changes during high-performance driving.
Premium Midship (PM) platform with hybrid unibody
By using a powerful twin-turbo V6 rather than a larger and heavier V8 or V12, the Nissan GT-R® exploits its PM design for ultimate balance. In the PM design, much of the engine sits well back in the chassis behind the front axle—for crisper turn-in, quick steering response and overall balance. The lighter, more compact engine also pays dividends in performance and other interior room.
NISMO® aerodynamic body design – carbon-fiber front and rear fascia, side sills and rear spoiler
No line is wasted with NISMO® design, and the GT-R is no exception. Carbon-fiber adds lightness while the spoiler increases downforce by 220 lbs– making it a smooth and speedy ride.
Carbon-fiber trunk lid
A new carbon fiber trunk lid adds stiffness, while weighing nearly half as much as a standard trunk lid. Its smooth surface has been painted so you won’t see a difference, but since lighter equals faster, you’ll feel it on the track. Top it with the dry carbon fiber spoiler for mighty downforce, and increased stability.
