Nissan GT-R Performance
Nissan knew when they designed the 2017 GT-R that it would need to be better than ever before. That is why they got 4 master drivers to test it, at all speeds and all conditions. Tests included reaching a maximum speed of 300km/hr on the Autobahn, driving over potholes and testing it on real-world roads. The 3.8L twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6 engine gives a maximum output of 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. The ATTESA E-TS All-Wheel Drive with patented independent rear-mounted transaxle integrating transmission allows you to drive in all conditions. The all-new dual clutch 6-speed transmission with three separate modes including Normal, R-Mode and Save, allows you to choose the best mode for your driving, fully customizing the ride.
Nissan GT-R Exterior Styling
Aerodynamic, is one of the words that can be used to describe the 2017 Nissan GT-R. Every detail was engineered to only have a 1% energy loss around the C-pillar, while the front fascia creates a vortex that redirects air around the wheel wells. But that’s not all it is, every detail was designed to be sporty with clean lines. When engineering the GT-R they went through every detail and made them better. The reinforced hood, rear bumper lip and side sill have all been redesigned to perfection. The upgraded Track edition is designed to be sharper. NISMO wheels and suspension come together to give you extra quality. While the carbon-fibre spoiler provides amazing downforce too. You will be show stopping in the Nissan GT-R.
