New 2011 Nissan GT-R Hits the Market

Together with the advent of the Nissan 350Z in the late 2002, the U.S. audience was taken by storm. Everybody rushed to catch a glimpse of that new six-cylinder import. None of the models manufactured by other, otherwise renowned brands, was welcome as enthusiastically as Nissan 350Z. Subaru STi, Dodge SRT-4, Mitsubishi Evo-VIII, Volkswagen R32 and InfinitiG35 have also had their debut, but were foreshadowed by the 287 horsepower two-seater. Although the other cars had the comparably attractive features, they all lacked one thing that Nissan 350Z possesses: the relation to the race-bred Nissan Skyline GT-R.
Since that time, technology has made a huge step ahead and some time ago, Nissan officially presented its 2011 model GT-R. The main upgrades were applied within the engine bay and now, the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 has the capacity of 523 bhp at 6400 rpm. Fuel economy has also been improved by the reduction in drag co-efficient, modification of the boost pressure and a tweaked exhaust system.
Further improvements include the application of larger front brake discs, a new Dunlop Sport Maxx tires and lighter Rays forged alloys in “Hyper Blue Black Chrome”. All these changes, combined with rectifier fins and a new front bumper have made the vehicle 6 seconds quicker than the previous model of GT-R.
The alterations are less conspicuous inside: the main change included the use of magnesium for the DSG paddle shifters and some dashings of chrome. Two new colours have also been introduced, Metallic Black and Daytona Blue. Compared to a last year’s model, the price has risen by 1.9 per cent, from $158,800 to $162,800.
