Sporting slight modifications for 2012, including center console carbon-fiber trim, the mid-engine Nissan GT-R supercar is better than ever. Other new changes include a refreshed front and rear fascia. A twin turbo V6 engine supplies the car with an upgraded 520 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. Paired with AWD and a six-speed automated manual the GT-R does 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. Fuel mileage can be expected to be comparable to the 2011 figures of 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway. Features include LED running lights, 20-inch wheels, premium audio system, 11-speaker sound system, hands-free phone technology, navigation system, push button ignition, heated front seats and custom trimmed Recaro® seats. Safety is comprised of dual-stage front airbags, seat mounted side-impact airbags, roof-mounted curtain side-impact airbags, anti-lock braking, electronic brake force distribution and tire pressure monitoring. The GT-R is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less
For 2012, the Nissan GT-R is getting a power boost from its twin-turbo V6 engine; this year it's at 530 horsepower, up from 485 last year, due to some breathing and turbocharging improvements. Also for 2012, stability is improved through improved aerodynamics and increased downforce--which also increases high-speed stability. The GT-R's front and rear fascias have also been redesigned, with the rear one resculpted entirely. Front LED running lamps have been added as well, and inside, the GT-R gets upgraded materials and new carbon-fiber trim. New 20-inch wheels, designed by RAYS, are also added to the package. Two new colors--Deep Blue Pearl and Jet Black--have been added to the lineup. In the U.S., the GT-R remains available only at special 'GT-R Certified' dealerships.
One of the world's top performance cars; rare and exclusive; aggressive, distinctive look; sophisticated powertrain
Some might know the Nissan GT-R more from racing games than from the street. Either way, it's a legend, and because of its rarity, exotic powertrain, and incredible performance numbers, it's a true supercar. While the GT-R doesn't make much sense as a daily driver, this high-performance coupe is a must-have for collectors, the image-conscious, and those who must have what's fastest.
