Nissan Unveils the 2017 GT-R
Ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show this week, Nissan unveils the 2017 GT-R (formerly the Skyline GT-R).
The model stays true to the looks of past versions, but with some tweaks to the spoiler and bumpers, alongside wider side sills and a larger take on the V-Motion grille for better airflow and improved cooling for the engine.
Under the hood is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, but now gets a 20 horsepower upgrade and 467 pound-feet of torque, thanks to boosted turbos and individual ignition-timing control for each of the six cylinders. A six-speed dual-clutch gearbox is also tweaked for less noise and smoother shifts while titanium exhaust and Active Sound Enhancement sounds even better.
Finally, an acoustic glass windshield, new sound insulation and Active Noise Cancellation make for a quieter cabin, which includes paddle shifters, new seats, Nappa leather upholstery, updated navigation and infotainment systems and an 8-inch touch panel monitor.
Nissan's 2017 GT-R hits dealers later this year for around $100,000 USD.
