-- Cameras caught a glimpse of what appears to be a prototype of the upcoming 2014 Nissan GT-R slamming through the Nürburgring circuit in Germany. It's made the teams at Glendale Nissan, one of the area's top Nissan dealers, very excited, and drivers throughout Chicagoland are sure to have a similar reaction.
Though these high-powered racers have a lot more going on under the hood than your average Sentra or Altima, Nissan's spirit of delivering excellence is still there. While many details are still unavailable on the new model, it is expected to be an even further improvement on the updated 2013 GT-R. The reason for the new GT-R's being at the racetrack in Germany was most likely so that engineers could observe performance. From the few photos captured, things are looking excellent! http://www.motorauthority.com/pictures/1079062_2014-nissa...
Chief GT-R platform engineer Kazutoshi Mizuno, who will most likely now serve as a consultant for the project because of Nissan's required retirement at 60, has guaranteed the automaker's dedication to the continued improvement of the model line. Thanks to this fervent commitment, the GT-R has displayed incredible gains in speed and performance over the past few years. Recently, the 2013 GT-R was entered in the Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance race, where it placed as a winner in its class and 30th overall, achieving a great victory for Nissan's high-performance engineers.
The race only helped to solidify the world's interest in the progress of the GT-R. Based off of speculation, the new model will feature redesigned bumpers with new cooling ducts, new light graphics, new wheel designs, a new interior — and, of course, more power beneath the hood. There's even talk of releasing an even higher-performance RS model through a collaboration with Nissan's in-house motor sports division, Nismo. Upgrades for these RS models would include suspension and mild power upgrades, giving this beloved supercar even faster acceleration capability to boot.
