The Nissan GT-R is a high-performance car that has muscled in on the kind of territory that was once typically occupied by the likes of Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz AMG and Porsche. With its wholly contemporary good looks and old-school sports car prowess, the GT-R is not an automobile that can be ignored.
From any viewpoint, the GT-R does nothing but impress. Its refashioned front end, for example, comprises an expanded radiator grille that encompasses much of the car’s front bumper. The vehicle’s sleek yet dynamic profile is accentuated by a dramatically tapering roofline that converges upon a striking boot-mounted, wing-style rear spoiler. The vehicle rides on 20-inch forged alloy wheels as standard, which feature an eye-catching Y-spoke design. There’s room inside for four, and front-row travellers are provided with heated seats that offer multi-configurable, power-operated adjustability.
The GTR’s standard-issue 3.8-litre 550bhp petrol engine produces anything but standard results. This V6 unit puts out a peak torque of 632Nm, which allows the car to go from 0-60mph in an astonishing 2.6 seconds. On the race circuit, this twin-turbo engine enables the car to achieve a top speed of 196mph.
Lightning-quick speed requires sufficient levels of safety technology to act as a counterbalance. Happily, the GT-R’s four-wheel disc brakes are super-responsive. A host of driver aids feature too, such as Anti-lock Braking System and Vehicle Dynamic Control that deliver enhanced stability, even at high speeds.
An eleven-speaker Bose stereo system delivers the type of sound quality that any audiophile worth his or her salt will truly appreciate. A standard-issue eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system is included too. This features DAB digital radio and SD card-updateable satellite navigation, among other things.
