Nissan has updated its GT-R supercar for 2015 model year, underlining GT-R’s legendary position in the upper echelons of the super sports car segment.
A more mature suspension setup – which is still a double wishbone design up front and a multilink system at the rear – allows for improved ride comfort, handling and stability.
Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels have been reduced thanks to improved transmission noise and shock reduction, with brake noise reduced as well for an overall more pleasant drive. Braking ability – which is powered by a revered two-piece floating-rotor Brembo 4-disc system – has also been enhanced.
Completing the list of improvements, a new multi-spoke wheel design is now available for the GT-R Premium Edition.
“What is most important to note is that the price increase on 2015 Nissan GT-R derivatives has been capped at a mere 1%,” said Konstantin von Vieregge, General Manager Product Planning at Nissan South Africa.
“This means a minimal increase of just R15 000 to all models, offering the 2015 modifications at exceptional value.”
The new Nissan GT-R maintains its 3.8-litre turbocharged V6 engine as standard which, thanks to its 397 kW and 628 Nm, is still good for a blistering 0-100 km/h sprint of just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h.
Power is transferred to all four wheels via Nissan’s ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system linked in a transaxle design to a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission at the rear and a high-performance mechanical limited-slip differential.
