Nissan today announced pricing for the 2016 Nissan GT-R supercar, which is on sale now at select Nissan dealers in the United States. Prices for the three 2016 GT-R models remains unchanged from last year, despite several significant enhancements, including:
Nissan declared itself ready to take on the world’s best sports car manufacturers after revealing a glimpse of its Le Mans challenger – the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo – during the commercial break for Super Bowl XLIX.
2014′s Super Bowl was the most watched television program in U.S. television history with over 110 million viewers. The 2015 game was therefore the perfect opportunity for Nissan’s “With Dad” commercial to air for the first time, revealing the much-anticipated Nissan GT-R LM Nismo, the car that will take on the best in the world in the race to glory at the Le Mans 24 Hours.
Nissan is returning to the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world, the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas from November 4 to 7.
Featuring a special “NISMO Lounge,” the Nissan booth will place special emphasis on NISMO-branded production vehicles, performance parts and aftermarket accessories. On display will be the new 600-horsepower 2015 GT-R NISMO factory supercar and a Nissan 370Z NISMO safety vehicle, fresh off its official duties in the recent Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSCC) race in Austin, Texas.
The new Nissan GT-R Track Edition, which makes its U.S. debut at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, is the third and most exclusive model in the 2014 GT-R lineup. Designed to take Nissan’s legendary 545-horsepower street supercar even closer to a pure motorsports competition machine, it features a specially tuned suspension, special brake cooling guides, front spoiler with carbon fiber air ducts and a lightweight quilted cloth mat where the rear seats usually reside. It is set to go on sale at select GT-R certified Nissan dealerships nationwide beginning in May 2013. Production will be limited to 150 cars for the U.S. market.
Nissan GT-R just gets better and better every year and 2013 will be no exception. The new 2013 Nissan GT-R now has enhanced response, better stability and sharper handling. The model will go on sale in the spring next year, showing-off its new four-wheel drive and great responsiveness.
The original version launched back at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show delivered a total amount of 473 HP; the most recent model – Model Year 2012 – went up to an impressive 530 HP; and things aren’t slowing down for the Japanese automaker. In fact, this Nissan model has received a round of improvements, which complement perfectly the “beast” which seeps under its good: the 550 horsepower (405 kW) 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine.
The GT-R made 10.504 seconds at 1/4 mile with 235.60 km/h at 1/4 mile and 25.187 seconds with 337.07 km/h at 1 mile. The Porsche was slightly slower at 1 mile with 25.807 seconds and 316.62 km/h, but faster at 1/4 mile – 10.418 seconds and 226.27 km/h.
2013 Nissan GT-R R35 is powered by a VR38DETT engine – a 3.8 liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 550HP (400 kW) at 6400 RPM and 632Nm (466 lb-ft) of torque at 3200RPM. The top speed is 315 km/h (196 mph).
