The New York Auto Show continues as Nissan has taken the wraps off the 2017 GT-R.
Billed as the most significant update to the model since it was introduced in 2007, the 2017 GT-R features an all-new front fascia with a revised V-motion grille and larger air intakes. The car has also been equipped with a restyled hood that has pronounced character lines which help to "enhance stability during high speed driving." Additional changes are limited but the GT-R Premium gains a new titanium exhaust system and all 2017 models feature a revised color palette that now includes Blaze Metallic.
The woefully dated interior has finally been shown some love as designers installed a new leather wrapped dashboard, a revised center stack, and a new infotainment system with a larger 8-inch display. Drivers will also find more comfortable seats, new steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters, and an Active Noise Cancellation system which helps to filter out unwanted noises. Last but not least, the GT-R has been equipped with acoustic glass and additional sound deadening material to help create a more comfortable driving environment.
Power is provided by a familiar biturbo 3.8-liter V6 engine but it has now been tuned to produce 565 horsepower which is an increase of 20 hp.
The 2017 GT-R will go on sale this summer and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
