2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO. Designed for high performance.

Until recently the affordable-super-car category has been occupied, solely, by the Nissan GT-R. With the addition of the 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO to the category, the standard for high performance has been raised even higher. The GT-R NISMO’s front end features a freshened new face, highlighted by an aggressive new fascia with intakes to help cool the car’s high-output engine. In the words of Nissan “the dark chrome ’V-motion’ grille has been enlarged to collect more air, without diminishing the car’s aerodynamic performance”. This, along with a new hood, avoids deformation at very high speeds, allowing this machine to keep its aerodynamic shape. Unlike the standard GTR model, the front bumper of the GT-R NISMO is designed with layers of carbon-fiber sheets carefully overlapped to get the best amount of stiffness.

With it’s refreshed interior the GT-R NISMO is more upscale in appointments than ever before. The redesigns continue throughout. The dashboard and steering wheel covered with high-quality Alcantara® suede. The center stack layout has been improved and simplified, with the number of integrated navigation and audio controls reduced from 27 switches in the previous model to only 11 in the 2017 version. An enlarged 8-inch touch-panel monitor featuring large icons on the display screen which make the operations more streamline and efficient. A new Display Command control on the carbon fiber center console allows easy operation without having to touch the monitor. Unique to GT-R NISMO are the leather-appointed Recaro® seats with red synthetic suede inserts.

 

 
 

 

Well Worth the Wait.

The performance of the all-wheel-drive GT-R NISMO has also been upgraded, thanks in part to the standard model’s significantly reinforced body. The stiffened body structure allowed the engineers to further refine the GT-R NISMO’s shock absorbers, springs and stabilizers, all of which, when combined with the car’s added down force, result in a better handling car than the previous model. The GT-R’s special Bilstein® DampTronic driver-adjustable system which utilizes multiple vehicle inputs to provide appropriate damping-forces and high level of control for a variety of driving situations features a special NISMO tuned shock absorber that more effectively transfers the power of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6, which still produces 600 horsepower, to the road surface.

“The GT-R NISMO emphasizes the ‘R’ in its nomenclature. Its direct ties with racing make it at home on any racetrack, providing the highest levels of excitement and exhilaration for the driver. With the 2017 GT-R as a starting point, the new NISMO version has become a better-balanced machine; with increased performance, and a heightened premium feel overall. It is the result of our ongoing pursuit of ultimate driving pleasure,” said Hiroshi Tamura, Chief Product Specialist, GT-R.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO is a true ‘driver car’ that makes every journey from the day-to-day commute to weekend getaway a thrilling journey. Nissan
