With brand new upgrades, the Nissan GT-R Nismo is ready to arrive at stores and the pricing of the model is expected to be at £149,995 at launch.
The auto brand has confirmed that buyers will be able to purchase this faster version of the GT-R from November 1st onwards. The new model is expensive when compared to its immediate competition, the Porsche 911 Turbo S priced at £145,773.
Some of the prominent changes that can be spotted in the next gen model includes a revamped front grille, upgraded shock absorbers, springs and some modifications done to the body that offers a better driving experience. Nissan added that with the added downforce provided by these overhauled components, the car offers complete control to the driver irrespective of the speed they are driving in.
The corner performance of the Nissan GT-R Nismo and its slalom times are improved by 2 percent. The settings are fully customizable with the help of an adaptive damper system. Under the hood, the Nismo is still powered by the same 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 engine capable of producing a solid 592 horsepower coupled with 652 Nm of torque. It is mated to a six speed dual clutch automatic gearbox system. For generating the best performance out of the same engine, it has been designed from the scratch by a group of engineers and Nissan claims it has been hand built by trained technicians in the team.
Acceleration capacity of the car is that it can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds. The top speed is pegged at 200 miles per hour. A host of upgrades can be found in the car, both on the inside and the outside. The dashboard has been redesigned to be easier to access with a better steering wheel and there’s also a center armrest for better comfort.
The seats are wrapped over with Alcantara leather seats that adds a sense of sophistication to the car. A large 8-inch touchscreen display is part of the dashboard which allows the passengers to use the infotainment system, control media and know some basic information while on the move. The button layout has been slightly modified so that you don’t have to use the touchscreen all the time. The car has Recaro sports seats lined with red inserts to justify the price tag and give it the coveted sports car appearance.
