Nissan announces the pricing for its 2016 Nissan GT-R supercar, which is on sale now at select Nissan dealers in the U.S.
The new model is available in four versions, and remains mostly unchanged from last year, despite several significant enhancements.
New for 2016 is the addition of five horsepower to the GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition, all-new 20-spoke wheels for the GT-R Premium, and a 45th Anniversary Gold Edition, featuring a special exterior paint color.
The 45th Anniversary Gold Edition, built off of the GT-R Premium model, commemorates the GT-R’s long heritage of world-class high performance. It features a special gold paint color, as well as a special gold-tone VIN plate located inside the engine compartment and a special commemorative plaque on the interior center console. Less than 30 of the limited model is slated for the U.S., retailing for $102,770 USD.
The GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition are now rated at 550 horsepower, thanks to additional fine-tuning of the advanced VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6’s engine electronics. The power rating for the exclusive GT-R NISMO remains unchanged at 600 horsepower. Along with the 50 additional horsepower and 18 additional lb-ft of torque, the GT-R NISMO features enhanced aerodynamic features, body reinforcement and ultra-precise handling (versus the Premium and Black Edition models).
The new 20-spoke RAYS aluminum-alloy forged wheels come in premium dark finish (near black), and are mounted with sticky nitrogen-filled Dunlop Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT ultra high performance run-flat tires.
The 2016 GT-R Premium starts at $101,770 USD, the Black Edition starts at $111,510 and the GT-R NISMO will start at $149,990 USD.
