Affordable everyday Supercar for the world, not very much in India with a price tag like that, Nissan GTR India launch finds a first customer already
After tonnes of spyshots, leaks of every possible along with test drives from international soil that we have read till date, the Nissan GTR is here. Wittingly called as the Godzilla, the supercar is two-door four-seat car that is meant to be your every day super car. However, with those proportions and price tag, this isn’t for everyone. Blame Nissan or government for the heavy price tag that these cars come with along. The price tag is exactly two times more than the USA market for example. However, let’s forget that and we will help you with the details.
The GT-R’s has an award-winning 3.8-liter V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged engine and every unit is handcrafted by its own TAKUMI technician delivers 565 BHP and 637 Nm of torque. The improved than last generation vehicle output, which are the result of individual ignition-timing control of the cylinders and extra boost from the turbochargers. All of this means that the car gets even faster off the line that it is already known for.
Engines comes mated to a thoroughly refined ‘American made’ 6-speed dual-clutch transmission that features smoother shifts and less noise. That familiar GT-R exhaust and intake noise also has been upgraded with an engine that has never sounded better, claims Nissan. The resonance of the new titanium mufflers and Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) help in that case.
Extremely well tuned chassis (pretty much to the limit) and putting power down through the engine via the chassis is done by the grip of sticky 20-inch tires, wrapped around new “Y-spoke” machine-finished forged aluminum wheels. The new GT-R claims to have a smoother ride quality than the outgoing model, and cabin remains much quieter at all speeds and new sound absorption materials fitted to it. We get the European version of the car.
