It isn’t found in a lap time. Or a 0–100 number. Or even on a price tag. It’s built on an obsession to detail. And a radical belief that a real supercar delivers performance in real-world conditions. Anywhere. Anytime. So refined, anyone can drive it. Yet so capable, in the right hands it can turn the automotive world on its ear. The Nissan GT-R. Its history speaks of world-beating performance, but the pursuit will always be of pure exhilaration.
Relentless tuning of the GT-R’s aerodynamics provides an incredibly clean Coefficient of Drag of 0.26 Cd. While you see a substantial, powerful supercar, to the wind, it punches through the air like a low-slung, mid-engine supercar. Pure aerodynamic alchemy.
The GT-R sees massive changes in its interior, to enhance both comfort and capability. Revised ergonomics puts control at your fingertips, for an easier drive, while new hand-selected and hand-crafted materials create an environment that will get your pulse racing – even before you start the engine.
Once again, GT-R rethinks the way the driver receives information. Multiple, easily accessed screens are an innovative way the driver can get immediate feedback to key performance parameters. The result is engaging and informative – providing quick readability combined with the flexibility of multiple customisable displays.
Many believe that a supercar should only be driven on a perfect day, on a perfect stretch of road, and only by an expert driver. We have a different vision. That every day should be a supercar day. That you should be able to enjoy exhilaration with comfort and confidence, regardless of your skill level, on any road, regardless of conditions. A radical idea? Perhaps. But we like going our own way.
Nissan challenged convention at every point of the Nissan GT-R’s development. Instead of a large, heavy engine thirsty for fuel, the Nissan GT-R is powered by an ideally sized, twin-turbocharged 3.8-L V6 that produces an even more powerful 550HP and equally immense 632Nm of torque, the result of individual ignition-timing control of the cylinders and extra boost from the turbochargers. Just as important as the engineering is the actual assembly, which is done by hand by a single master craftsman, whose signature you’ll find on a small, but prominent, plaque.
Nissan GT-R’s easy-to-use 3-mode system is always ready. Three switches allow for on-the-fly adjustment of specific performance parameters for the transmission, suspension, and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system.
The immense power and capability of the Nissan GT-R comes with a level of safety, control, and convenience features designed to inspire confidence every moment you’re behind the wheel.
