Nissan had displayed the 2013 version of the GT-R at the 2011 LA Auto Show. Nothing seems to be changed as far as the eye can see. However, when it comes to performance, the car pumps an additional 15 horses as compared to the 2012 model making it the most powerful GT-R till date.
The twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 motor pumps out 545 bhp of power and 463 pound-feet of torque. This additional strength to the engine comes from a new redesigned intake system, complete with larger intercooler ducting and reduced airflow resistance. The firm also uses new lubricants for the GT-R’s transmission which has recalibrated shift action.
Along with this, the new car comes with carbon ceramic brake option which seems to be essential while considering Nissan’s claim that the car can hit 60 mph from stand-still in merely 2.7 seconds. With a stiffened chassis, the car has proved to be 10 seconds faster at Germany’s Nürburgring track. However, we still have no expectations for this beast to hit the Indian streets. In the meanwhile, let’s just sit and do what we can do best, ‘hope!’
