New Delhi: Nissan Motor on Friday launched the 2017 Nissan GT-R in India. Nissan’s flagship sports car goes on sale for the first time in the country priced at Rs 1.99 Crore (ex-showroom price New Delhi).
The new signature V-Motion grille, exceptional aerodynamic performance, precision-crafted powertrain and upgraded interior have given the GT-R a more mature character which reinforces its status as one of the most revered performance cars in the world.
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.
A new hood, which flows flawlessly from the grille, has been significantly reinforced, contributing to stability during high-speed driving. A freshly-designed front spoiler lip and front bumpers with finishers situated immediately below the headlamps give the new Nissan GT-R the look of a pure-bred racecar, while generating high levels of front downforce.
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).
It comes mated to a thoroughly refined 6-speed dual-clutch transmission that features smoother shifts and less noise. That familiar GT-R tone also has been upgraded with an engine that has never sounded better. The resonance of the new titanium mufflers and Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) enhance the driving experience during acceleration.
