Nissan’s 2012 model year GT-R will go on sale early next year and features more power, a revised chassis, new suspension and refined transmission.
Engine changes have improved fuel economy to 24mpg (from 23.5mpg), power has been boosted by 18bhp to 548bhp at 6,400rpm with maximum torque of 632Nm (+20Nm) from 3,200 to 5,800 rpm.
As well as more power, the 2012 GT-R has a newly developed asymmetric suspension which Nissan says compensates for greater weight on the driver’s side in RHD models, enhanced transmission ‘feel’ and a stronger body for extra rigidity and better handling.
Interior changes include blue lighting inside the tachometer ring to match the shift position indicator light, a rear view camera as standard on all models and new Bose sound system upgrades.
Nissan will also be creating a track focused version of the GT-R which will cater for customers who want a more track biased driving experience.
Further details on the track specific version and pricing for MY2012 GT-R is expected in early December.
