The New Nissan GT-Rs Unveiled
November 19 – Yokohama – CEO Carlos Ghosn introduced the 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo and the 2014 Nissan GT-R on Tuesday, the latest iterations of the company’s legendary sports car.
Sales of the new 2014 Nissan GT-R begin in Japan on December 2, followed by sales at Nissan dealerships worldwide.
The new production model offers fine-tuned suspension for greater grip and traction, while steering and brake calibration have been tuned for greater responsiveness under a variety of road conditions and at high speeds.
The 2014 GT-R Nismo is equipped with a 3.8-liter V6 VR38DETT engine, raising engine power to 600PS (441kw) and 481 lb ft (652 Nm) of torque.
New high-flow, large capacity turbochargers, used for GT3 racing, improve breathing, while optimized individual ignition timing control for each cylinder and upgraded fuel pump improve combustion.
The springs and custom-developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers in the front and rear suspension are specially tuned to deliver exceptional grip levels and progressive handling response, with three suspension modes: Comfort, Normal and R, for circuit applications.
It also features a 17.3 mm hollow rear anti-roll bar which raises roll stiffness while reducing weight.
