Nissan has launched the 2015 Nissan GT-R in its home-market of Japan with minor tweaks and updates. The 2015 GT-R features improvements in the driving comfort without any sacrifice in the sportscar’s performance. The new model has enhanced cabin quietness with reduction in vibration. The ride quality also has been improved with recalibrated suspension, claims the company.
The car also features new four-LED headlights with Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS). AFS automatically changes the angle of the light beam at high speeds. The GT-R’s signature four-ring taillights now form coherent illuminating circles. A major mechanical change is the 4-wheel independent suspension has been tuned for reducing the load fluctuation between the four wheels and is claimed to have provided better handling and grip.
The car is powered by the same 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine mated to a six-speed dual clutch transmission. The engine produces 545 hp and 628 Nm of torque. For performance-enthusiasts, there’s a Track Edition model engineered by Nismo – the company’s in-house tuning brand.
