Nissan announced the release of the 2017 GT-R, first presented in Japan on 1 April, with sales starting 27 July.
The new GT-R, along with redesigns to the exterior (the largest scale the vehicle has seen since the 2007 model) and interior, will have better driving performance due to the introduction of new technologies into the vehicleâ€™s scheme. The 3.8 liter 6 cylinder V engine utilizes technology from the GT-R NISMO such as an individual cylinder firing control mechanism, increasing the vehicleâ€™s prowess. With a maximum output of 570 ps, Nissan was able to pull an extra 20 ps when compared with former models.
The exterior sees Nissanâ€™s signature V motion grill on the front, and by increasing the size of the intake cooling is not only improved but wind resistance is lowered, furthering stability when driving at high speeds.
Inside the GT-R one finds precision, hand-stitched NEPPA leather on the instrument panel. By making the layout of the cockpit one that seems to envelope the driver, from the meters to the center console positioning, the interior presents a very driver-oriented space. In addition to this, the navigation display panel has been made larger, from 7 to 8 inches, allowing for larger icons to be implemented, increasing both usability and visibility.
The Nissan GT-R ranges from Â¥9,960,840 ($94,000 USD) to Â¥11,705,040 ($110,000 USD).
