Nissan's updated GT-R promises to provide better engine response, sharper handling and an improved ride comfort.
Nissan has made a series of revisions to its GT-R model for the 2014 model year.
The twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine with its 542 hp (405 kW) features new high-output injectors for improving mid- and high-rpm response. The turbocharger has a new relief valve for suppressing the rapid decrease of forced injection pressure which should improve response. There’s also a new oil pan baffle designed to maintain pressure and lower friction.
The GT-R’s suspension has also received some updates, with revisions to dampers, springs and front anti-roll bar for lowering the center of gravity. Camber accuracy and stability during cornering have been improved thanks to new cam bolts on the front suspension.
The revised Nissan GT-R is scheduled to go on sale in UK next spring.
