LIVE FOR THE CHASE

LEGENDARY EXHILARATION
It isn’t found in a lap time. Or a 0–100 number. Or even on a price tag. It’s built on an obsession to detail. And a radical belief that a real supercar delivers performance in real-world conditions. Anywhere. Anytime. So refined, anyone can drive it. Yet so capable, in the right hands it can turn the automotive world on its ear. The Nissan GT-R. Its history speaks of world-beating performance, but the pursuit will always be of pure exhilaration.

PERFORMANCE

ANYONE, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE.
Many believe that a supercar should only be driven on a perfect day, on a perfect stretch of road, and only by an expert driver. We have a different vision. That every day should be a supercar day. That you should be able to enjoy exhilaration with comfort and confidence, regardless of your skill level, on any road, regardless of conditions. A radical idea? Perhaps. But we like going our own way.

550HP 3.8-LITRE, TWIN-TURBO V6

At the heart of the GT-R is an ideally sized, twin-turbocharged 3.8-L V6 that produces a prodigious 550HP and equally immense 632Nm of torque. Hand-assembled by one of only five master craftsmen in the world allowed to create such a masterpiece. But it’s more than just exceptional skill that goes into the process that makes the GT-R so special. As one of the craftsmen says, “We put our souls into each engine, hoping to deliver that excitement to customers.”
Image

HAND-CRAFTED TITANIUM EXHAUST

Another example of the precision crafting of the GT-R. To ensure the proper cooling from the engine’s massive output, an available titanium exhaust is now offered. Notoriously difficult to work with, each exhaust is hand-built by a master craftsman, and is specifically designed for an individual vehicle. Combined with an exotic sounding exhaust note, it’s music to any enthusiast’s ears.

EXTERIOR DESIGN

THE AIR CAN’T BELIEVE ITS EYES
Relentless tuning of the GT-R’s aerodynamics provides an incredibly clean Coefficient of Drag of 0.26 Cd. While you see a substantial, powerful supercar, to the wind, it punches through the air like a low-slung, mid-engine supercar. Pure aerodynamic alchemy.
Image

SHAPED TO PERFECTION

While you may find the GT-R’s look more aggressive, the styling is pure function. Larger grille openings enhance cooling to key components, without increasing aerodynamic drag. Even the smallest detail was evaluated. An example, the C-pillar was slightly redesigned to stop the formation of a vortex that could slow the GT-R down. A 1% change in efficiency may not seem like much to some, but to the fanatical GT-R engineers, worthy of the effort.

INTERIOR

ARTISAN MEETS ENGINEER
The GT-R sees massive changes in its interior, to enhance both comfort and capability. Revised ergonomics puts control at your fingertips, for an easier drive, while new hand-selected and hand-crafted materials create an environment that will get your pulse racing – even before you start the engine.
Image

GO PREMIUM, BUT NEVER GO SOFT

The GT-R elevates the driving experience with features like a dash cover created from a single, leather hide – hand-selected for a flawless leather appearance. Available semi-aniline leather appointments creating a soothing ambience. Even the interior acoustics have been retuned, to reduce unwanted noise, while allowing the pure intoxicating sound of the GT-R’s engine to thrill like never before.

TECHNOLOGY

TRAVELLING AT THE SPEED OF GT-R
Once again, GT-R rethinks the way the driver receives information. Multiple, easily accessed screens are an innovative way the driver can get immediate feedback to key performance parameters. The result is engaging and informative – providing quick readability combined with the flexibility of multiple customisable displays.

DIALED IN

Putting control at your fingertips, the all-new Display Commander lets you toggle up and down, side-to-side, rotate, scroll through and control your infotainment system, all without the need to look down or touch the display screen.
