The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO – The Next Level

2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO

The new 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO made its debut yesterday at the famous Nürburgring race course, known as the one of the longest and most challenging race tracks in the world. This is also the place where the Nissan GT-R’s potent performance was honed, tuned and developed.

Like the standard model, the GT-R NISMO’s front end features a freshened face that’s highlighted by a new bumper. And to help cool the car’s high-output engine, the dark chrome V-motion grille has been enlarged to collect more air, without diminishing the car’s aerodynamic performance. A new significantly reinforced hood avoids deformation at extremely high speeds, allowing it to keep its aerodynamic shape at all times. Overall, the car’s new shape generates more downforce than any other Nissan production car to date, which in turn results in exceptional high-speed stability.

The new GT-R NISMO is also the benefactor of the 2017 GT-R’s refreshed interior, whose cabin possesses a more upscale feel than ever before. The redesigned dashboard, steering wheel and center armrest are covered with high-quality Alcantara® leather. The center dash layout has been improved and simplified via integrated navigation and audio controls (reducing the number of switches from 27 in the previous model to only 11) and an enlarged 8-inch touch-panel monitor that features large icons on the display screen make it simple to use. A new Display command control on the carbon-fiber center console allows easy operation without having to touch the monitor; a feature that comes in handy when traveling at high speed. Unique to the GT-R NISMO are the leather-appointed Recaro® carbon bucket seats with red Alcantara inserts.

The performance of the all-wheel-drive GT-R NISMO has also been upgraded, thanks in part to the standard model’s significantly reinforced body. The stiffened body structure allowed the engineers to further refine of the GT-R NISMO’s shock absorbers, springs and stabilizers, all of which, when combined with the car’s added downforce, result in a better handling car than the previous model. The GT-R’s special Bilstein® DampTronic driver-adjustable system—which utilizes multiple vehicle information systems to provide appropriate damping forces and high level of control for a variety of driving situations—features a special NISMO-tuned shock absorber that more effectively transfers the power of twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6, which still produces a remarkable 441kW (600PS) , to the road surface.

Dubbed the “VR38DETT,” the GT-R NISMO’s engine is the result of the expertise that NISMO has gained from participating in motorsports events around the globe. Mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox, it features a pair of high-flow, large diameter turbochargers used in GT3 competition. As with the standard model, each GT-R NISMO engine is hand-assembled from beginning to end in a special clean room by meticulously trained technicians, with an aluminum plate added to the front of each engine showing the name of the TAKUMI engine craftsman.

Despite its more potent nature, the new GT-R NISMO boasts better overall balance than before, evolving into a car that can be enjoyed on a winding mountain road as on the local race circuit. The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO is available in five different exterior colors. It is assembled in Tochigi, Japan, with the engines hand-assembled in Yokohama, Japan.

Breathing through a NISMO dual exhaust system, the 370Z NISMO also delivers the perfect sporting soundtrack.

Available only as a coupe with a six-speed manual gearbox, the new 370Z NISMO features a number of suspension enhancements introduced as part of the 2015 MY updates (see section below for more details). To improve ride comfort, the rear spring and damper rates have been altered, while changes to the carpets and inner rear wheel arch protector have further reduced road noise.

On sale in Europe from September 2014. Individual market prices and specifications will be announced closer to the launch later this year.
