Saturday, 1 October 2016

Nissan has wowed car lovers with the launch of the all new-Nissan GT-R with newer sophisticated features and a sporty new look. 

The new GT-R comes with a more aggressive front fascia and an enlarged grille to cool the hand-built potent engine, along with carbon fibre material additions to the front bumper and a reshaped hood to help the car better endure extreme speeds.

Managing Director Sales and Marketing Xavier Gobille, Nissan South Africa who spoke on the new specs of the car explained that the shift paddles are now mounted to the new steering wheel to allow drivers to change gears in mid-turn without having to take their hands off the wheel. The paddles themselves, along with the ventilation controls, have improved feel and better sound when engaged or adjusted.

He added that the new chrome matte finish “V-motion” grille represents one of Nissan’s latest design signatures. It has been enlarged to provide better engine cooling and now features an updated mesh pattern.

Mated to an award-winning 3.8-litre V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged engine – each unit handcrafted by its own Takumi technician, The GT-R now delivers 421kW at 6800rpm and 633Nm of torque that generates a hefty 600 horsepower.

“These exterior changes don’t result just in a sportier-looking car; they create an aerodynamically efficient vehicle, with less drag but retaining the same amount of downforce as the current GT-R to keep the car stable at high speeds,” he concluded.

The GT-R was launched recently at the South Africa Festival of Motoring
