Unparalleled performance; highly advanced all-wheel drive system; aggressive styling
For 2011, the GT-R comes in only one trim level. Standard equipment includes a twin-turbocharged 3.8L V6 engine, featuring a cast-aluminum block and dual overhead cams with variable intake timing. The car is good for 0 to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds, with a top speed north of 190 mph.
The 2010 GT-R is a super sports car in every sense of the word. In testing at Germany's famed Nurburgring, a stock GT-R topped the record lap time for a Porsche 911 Turbo. The GT-R comes with Advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with three drive modes: Normal, R-Mode and Off.
Power is put to the ground through a dual-clutch, 6-speed paddle-shift transmission with driver-configurable modes based on road conditions and driving requirements. Shifts take as little as 2-tenths of a second, and the unit blips the throttle on downshifts. A carbon-composite driveshaft feeds Nissan's advanced ATTESA ET-S all-wheel drive system, which creates a rear-wheel drive bias during normal conditions and 50/50 drive when things get slippery. Additionally, the GT-R features the world's first independent rear-mount transaxle and integrated AWD transfer case, which helps to create an optimal 54/46 front to rear weight distribution. Enormous 15-inch vented disc brakes fill the GT-R's 20-inch aluminum wheels.
The GT-R is built on a model-specific chassis and comes loaded with technology, namely the Nissan Hard Drive Navigation System with GPS, voice recognition and a 7-inch high-resolution color-LCD touch-screen display. Real-time traffic and weather updates have been added for 2011.
Standard features include a rear spoiler, Nissan Intelligent Key with push-button ignition, Bluetooth, iPod and DVD capabilities and run-flat tires.
Inside, the GT-R gets leather-appointed front seats with synthetic suede inserts, an 8-way power driver's seat and a 4-way power front passenger's seat, French-stitched leather-trimmed dashboard, console and doors, leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped magnesium paddle shifters, leather-wrapped gearshift knob and parking brake lever, brushed-metal interior trim and aluminum-trimmed pedals. A Bose stereo system is standard as well and includes a 9.3GB Music Box hard drive for digital music storage and playback, in-dash compact flash card reader for MP3/WMA playback, speed-sensitive volume control, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and XM Satellite Radio with activation and three months of service.
Standard safety features include antilock brakes for all four wheels using the Nissan/Brembo Braking System. Also standard are front, side, and head airbags. Nissan's Electronic Traction Control System, Nissan's Vehicle Immobilizer System and a Vehicle Security System are also standard.
Individual options include carpeted floor mats and a $3,000 Super Silver Metallic paint package. No-cost options include a Cold Weather package and Ultra-High-Performance Tire Pack.
The Nissan GT-R can trace its roots back to 1964 and the 2000GT. Since then, several versions have evolved, mostly outside of the U.S. and all of them have die-hard devotees throughout the world. The all-new GT-R came to the U.S. in 2009, and it continues to be extremely impressive for 2011. It continues to offer a 3.8L twin-turbocharged DOHC V6 engine that can generate 485 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque. The GT-R is now only available in one trim level, with automatic wipers, automatic headlights, iPod, Bluetooth and DVD capabilities standard. The suspension has been slightly retuned, with stiffer rear bushings and a double layer of clearcoat has been added to the front and rear fascias. The wheels now have darker center caps and extra cooling ducts have been added to the rear floor. No-cost options include the Cold Weather Package and the Ultra-High-Performance Tire Pack.
For the money, there's not much to touch the 2011 Nissan GT-R. It offers Ferrari F430 or Porsche 911 Turbo performance at half the price, and it's a far more refined car than the Corvette Z06 for about the same money. The GT-R is a world-class supercar, with prices starting at just over $80,000.
