The Innovative New 2014 Nissan GT-R Adds to the Impressive Legacy of this Legendary Sports Car
Scheduled to debut in January 2013, the new version of Nissan’s famous sports car will feature upgrades to the engine and chassis, along with an all new premium interior
Here is a look at the significant changes in store:
Building upon the changes to 2013 model’s VR38DETT 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine, which included improved exhaust emissions and intake efficiency, and a significant boost in horsepower resulting in 545 hp with 463 lb-ft of torque, the 2014 GT-R will feature new fuel injectors which will improve acceleration in the 4,500 to 6,000 rpm range. An oil pan baffle, to reduce friction and improve responsiveness, is also a new addition. Each 2014 engine will bear an aluminum plate with the name of the individual who built it.
The chassis will see an improvement to the front suspension alignment maintenance, along with redesigned spring and shock absorbers featuring a lower center of gravity. The location of the front suspension link bush is changed, and a new anti-roll bar reduces the front roll-center height.
The interior will be upgraded with premium materials, including a new Premium Interior Package featuring red amber semi-aniline leather-appointments, hand stitching on the front seats, and red amber accents on the door trim, steering wheel, shift knob, door trim, and instrument panel.
With their relentless work at improving upon what is already one of the most exceptional supercars available, the engineers at Nissan have succeeded in producing a newly enhanced and refined version of the GT-R for 2014. Performance enthusiasts are expected to be thrilled with the latest edition when it rolls out this coming January.
