Nissan upgrades GT-R

BY CHARL BOSCH - MARCH 12, 2015

Nissan South Africa has given its techno-laded GT-R supercar a number of small tweaks with the changes mostly limited to the suspension and comfort levels.

Although still retaining the double wishbone setup at the front and a multilink system at the rear, both have been revised to improve handling, comfort and stability. Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels have also been reduced due to new enhanced shock reduction, while the Brembo supplied disc brakes have also been received.

Mechanical changes to the 3.8-litre twin turbocharged V6 are unchanged with the engine still producing 397 kW and 628 N.m. Likewise, the six-speed dual clutch transmission and all-wheel drive system continue as is with Nissan claiming a 0-100 km/h sprint in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h.
