Nissan GT-R REVIEW IN CANADA
If you love high-performance cars, then you’re probably familiar with the Nissan GT-R, a Japanese sports car that’s been smashing lap records on race tracks all over the world since it was first introduced in 2007. The GT-R, which stands for Gran Turismo Racing, has earned many superlatives over the years.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
The Nissan GT-R is equipped with a 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo petrol engine whose power has evolved: in 2007 it offered 480 hp, but after several updates, now it delivers 570 hp and has a maximum torque of 637 Nm. It also has different electronic systems and specific settings so that power offers different levels depending on the version.
Nissan GT-R comes with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It sends all the power to all four wheels through a drive system that distributes the power between the two axles depending on the needs of each moment. This set gives you the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds and to reach a electronically limited top speed of 315 km/h.
Its shapes reveal a sports car with an aggressive and muscular design that, yes, has softened slightly over time to give shape to a car with marked shapes, very bulky and large. Not surprisingly, it measures 4.7 meters long, 1.8 meters wide and 1.3 meters high. Its wheelbase is 2.7 meters, it weighs 1,827 kg and its trunk offers a boot capacity of 315 liters.
The interior of the Nissan GT-R isn’t luxe, but it does have a driver-centric layout and tons of amenities. It seats four adults with plenty of legroom and cargo space in the hatch area. My personal favorite feature are the steering wheel controls for audio and Bluetooth that make it so much easier to stay in contact with your friends. Even better, the console has an eight-inch touchscreen display for reviewing everything from your performance data to satellite maps.
Nissan GT-R NISMO
With the Nissan GT-R Nismo some things change: although it continues to mount the 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo, in this case it delivers 600 horsepower and a maximum torque of 650 Nm. The transmission is a six-speed dual-clutch transmission that, in R Mode, shifts faster and more intuitively thanks to a new algorithm for adaptive gear shift control (ASC).
It also has new turbochargers that are the same as the GT3 racing version: they are 0.3 millimeters thinner, thus helping to reduce weight by 14.5% and inertia (24%) to give a faster response. The titanium exhaust system, meanwhile, transmits a more energetic sound.
Nissan GT-R VERDICT
The Nissan GT-R combines high performance with excellent fuel economy and luxurious comfort in an unmatched vehicle that looks as good as it drives. With an impressive power-to-weight ratio, the GT-R can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds and can reach speeds over 180 mph without a hiccup.
