From start to finish, every GT-R engine is crafted by a single engineer who operates in a special ‘clean room’ to ensure every engine operates at its absolute maximum potential. The result is a twin-turbo 3.8L V6 masterpiece that produces 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque – enough to decimate 99% of other vehicles on the road. It’s all routed through a sequential dual-clutch transmission that can shift in just 0.15 seconds – ensuring seamless acceleration regardless of speed.
Hand-Crafted by Master Craftsmen
It’s true that the GT-R’s engine is crafted by the hands of some of the most dedicated and reputable engineers in the industry. In fact, only one single Nissan master crasftsman–also known as a Takumi–built the engine of your new GT-R. There are only 5 Takumi on the planet, and the engine they’ve created for you is just as special to them as your GT-R is to you. Master-crafted with unmatched precision, pride and soul, the GT-R represents these qualities both you and your Takumi esteem so highly.
The 2017 Nissan GT-R has, quite literally, been sculpted by the wind. A super low drag coefficient of just 0.26 means the GT-R cuts through the wind with ease, resulting in a top speed in excess of 300km/h. The GT-R also uses the wind to create meaningful downforce, allowing it to attack corners with a ferocity unknown in most street cars. The GT-R’s engineers were so obsessed with reducing lift, that they designed its underside to be flat just like a race car’s underside.
The 2017 Track Edition takes the GT-R from the road to the racetrack. Now, as you imagine Godzilla with thrust rockets, think about the performance features you’ll get with the Track Edition: enhanced body shell rigidity, the NISMO tuned 4-wheel independent suspension, GT-R NISMO front fenders, 20-inch NISMO forged aluminum-alloy wheels, NISMO-spec tires, and the signature dry carbon fibre rear wing. The interior is certainly suited for the job too, with a beautiful red and black colour treatment and motorsports inspired Recaro® seating.
In spite of its incredible performance, the 2017 GT-R is built to be as comfortable on the daily commute as it is exciting to drive. An adjustable colour display lets you monitor every aspect of the vehicle – including g-force, turbo pressure, fuel economy, fluid temperatures and much more! Plus the NissanConnect system integrates voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation so you always know where you’re going, and you’ll be truly connected with your GT-R.
