Rather than being designed to the demands of aerodynamics, the GT-R sculpts the air to its needs - becoming a force of nature as much as a force to be reckoned with.
Large grille openings allow cooling air to key components. The front fascia shape helps direct air around the front wheel wells reducing drag.
The Nissan GT-R Taillights have true iconic status. The taillights are synonymous with the GT-R, if only for the fact that people are used to seeing them as you leave them in the dust.
The Nissan GT-R's rigid forged-aluminum 20" wheels, manufactured by RAYS®, utilize knurling inside the wheels to help keep the tires from slipping around the wheels under heavy acceleration or braking. The wheels feature a premium dark (near black) finish, which provides a high-quality, high-performance look.
The GT-R's side skirts help prevent airflow from being drawn underneath the vehicle. The area around the C-pillar is shaped to reduce turbulence and to help accelerate airflow toward the rear of the body.
A tradition of craftsmanship makes the GT-R a supercar that will take your breath away - even when sitting still.
Available semi-aniline leather appointments on the center console, door panels, and shift lever surround you in comfort, while available semi-aniline leather and double-stitching on the seats are a tactile and visual feast.
The Display Commander lets you dial in your world, allowing you to control key functions through GT-R's multi-touch screen. By rotating the dial, or pushing it to the left or right, you can scroll through all menus, and move selections around the screen.
The combination meter uses meshing gears as its motif. The tachometer is placed in the center, with the large-scale gear indicator on the upper right, supporting the driver with immediate readability when driving on the circuit.
In addition to its touch functionality, you can control the 8" touch-screen using the Display Commander. Positioned just behind the gearshift, it lets you toggle up and down, side-to-side, rotate, scroll through and control your infotainment system, all without the need to look down or touch the display screen.
When most supercars stay in the garage or make a hasty retreat from the less-than-ideal conditions, the Nissan GT-R powers through, with one of the most advanced All-Wheel Drive and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) systems ever used in a road car.
The longer a shift takes, the less time power is being put to the ground. So for maximum acceleration, the GT-R's paddle-shifted 6-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission can snap off lightning-quick gear changes in just 0.15 seconds when in R-Mode - almost as quickly as you can blink.
The Nissan GT-R's 6-speed dual-clutch transmission shifts incredibly quick. How? Inside the transmission, there are separate clutches for the odd (1st, 3rd, 5th) and even (2nd, 4th, 6th) gears. When the car is in an odd-numbered gear, the adjacent even numbered gear is "pre-selected" - ready to make the shift immediately. The transmission is so smart, it even "blips" the throttle on downshifts to match rpm. So even though your left leg may not get much exercise, you'll have tremendous fun shifting the GT-R.
The brakes feature 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers for stronger, more equal clamping power - something you'd expect to see on an all-out competition machine. For extreme rigidity with light weight, the caliper is machined from a single one-piece "monoblock" of aluminum.
The immense power and capability of the Nissan GT-R comes with a level of safety, control, and convenience features designed to inspire confidence every moment you're behind the wheel.
Sometimes a collision is unavoidable. But with Nissan's Zone Body construction, at least it can be safer for everyone on board. This advanced body construction combines impact-absorbing structures with a high-strength cabin, which helps provide protection for you and your passengers.
With the RearView Monitor, when you back up, a camera mounted discreetly on the rear of the vehicle helps you see what's directly behind you.
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage.
In sudden-braking situations, ABS pumps the brakes quickly to help prevent wheel lockup and help you maintain control.
All the power in the world is useless if you can't get any grip. So when TCS senses drive-wheel spin, it responds by helping reduce throttle, which helps you both regain grip and maintain control.
Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) monitors weight distribution and adjusts rear brake force to compensate for added weight from passengers or cargo.
