Pros

One of the world's top performance cars; rare and exclusive; aggressive, distinctive look; sophisticated powertrain


Model Highlights

The Nissan GT-R is offered in Premium and Black Edition models, both powered by a special 3.8L twin-turbocharged V6, now making 530 horsepower and 448 pound-feet of torque. Power is put to all four wheels with a performance-oriented all-wheel drive system, and a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox (with no actual clutch pedal) handles the shifting.

With the new GT-R's additional power, the dash to 60 mph takes around three seconds, and top speed is expected to be up from last year's 193 mph. Brakes are strong enough for secure stops from well into triple-digit speeds, and handling is enhanced by the variable-power-split AWD system. The ride is stiff, in a nod to this car's prioritization of performance above all else.

Inside, the GT-R feels snug, with a strong cockpit design. The driver sits low in rather narrow, very well bolstered sport seats, with a wide center console alongside. Steering-wheel paddle-shifters can command quick shifts, while center-stack controls are canted slightly toward the driver.

The GT-R has a very extensive list of features. Heated, leather-suede-trimmed seats, full power accessories, an Intelligent Key entry and ignition system, a navigation system with XM NavTraffic and NavWeather, a universal garage-door opener, and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity are all included. So it a Bose sound system with nine speakers, two subwoofers, Bluetooth streaming audio and DVD playback capability, USB and iPod connectivity, and XM satellite radio.

Priced about $6,000 above the GT-R Premium, the Black Edition adds metallic black lightweight forged aluminum wheels, designed by RAYS, plus Recaro sport bucket seats plus unique red and black interior trim.

There are few major options on the GT-R. A Cold Weather Package adds Dunlop run-flat tires and smoke-gray forged aluminum wheels. A backup camera is also available.


Value Writeup

Some might know the Nissan GT-R more from racing games than from the street. Either way, it's a legend, and because of its rarity, exotic powertrain, and incredible performance numbers, it's a true supercar. While the GT-R doesn't make much sense as a daily driver, this high-performance coupe is a must-have for collectors, the image-conscious, and those who must have what's fastest.


Model News

For 2012, the Nissan GT-R is getting a power boost from its twin-turbo V6 engine; this year it's at 530 horsepower, up from 485 last year, due to some breathing and turbocharging improvements. Also for 2012, stability is improved through improved aerodynamics and increased downforce--which also increases high-speed stability.

The GT-R's front and rear fascias have also been redesigned, with the rear one resculpted entirely. Front LED running lamps have been added as well, and inside, the GT-R gets upgraded materials and new carbon-fiber trim. New 20-inch wheels, designed by RAYS, are also added to the package. Two new colors--Deep Blue Pearl and Jet Black--have been added to the lineup.

In the U.S., the GT-R remains available only at special 'GT-R Certified' dealerships.
