Every year Nissan adds a little more power and makes a few minor tweaks to the GT-R. This year a face lift was on the cards, refreshing Godzilla with a slightly prettier face. Other changes include a softening of the suspension, leaving the hard edged experience for the NISMO version.
"The new GT-R delivers a heart-pounding driving experience at all times, on any road, for whoever sits in the driver's seat. We have continued to push its performance boundaries to the limit - it's even more potent than before. At the same time, refinement has been added to take the driving experience to an entirely new level. We're proud to bring you what we feel is the ultimate GT-R that possesses amazing performance, newfound civility and a rich racing history," said Hiroshi Tamura, chief product specialist, GT-R, Z and NISMO, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
