Nissan Motor India on Saturday launched its flagship sports car, the 2017 Nissan GT-R, for the first time in India priced at Rs 1.99 crore (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
Here are five key features you need to know about the 2017 Nissan GT-R
1 The new signature V-Motion grille, aerodynamic performance, precision-crafted powertrain and upgraded interior have given the GT-R a more mature character which reinforces its sports car status.
2. The new GT-R’s exterior gets a complete makeover across the front end. The new matte chrome finish “V-motion” grille represents one of Nissan’s latest design signatures. It has been enlarged to provide better engine cooling and now features an updated mesh pattern.
3. The cabin boasts of a premium interior with the entire dashboard and instrument panel being covered with high-quality leather. Integrated controls reduce the number of switches from 27 in the previous model to only 11 in the 2017 model. An enlarged 8-inch touch-panel monitor features large icons. The shift paddles are now mounted to the new steering wheel, allowing drivers to change gears in mid-turn without having to take their hands off the wheel.
4. The GT-R’s 3.8-liter V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged engine—each unit handcrafted by its own TAKUMI technician—now delivers 565HP at 6800 rpm and 637Nm of torque. The engines are the definition of TAKUMI expertise. The improved output, which are the result of individual ignition-timing control of the cylinders and extra boost from the turbochargers, allow the new GT-R to possess superior acceleration in the mid- to high-ranges (3200 rpm and above).
5. The 2017 GT-R are fresh colors inside and out that complement the car’s sophisticated character. In India, the GT-R will be offered in the European spec Premium Edition and will be available in Katsura Orange (new for 2017), Vibrant Red, Pearl Black, Pearl White, Racing Blue, Gun Metallic and Ultimate Silver. The choice of interior trim includes Red, Tan, Ivory & Black.
