Can it record one of the fastest speeds of any volume production car at the Nürburgting?
Can you have a conversation with the passenger, driving at 300km/h on the Autobahn?
Can you experience true sports driving on a snowy road?
Can you cruise comfortably on any type of surface?
Can a single car answer “yes” to all of the above?
Innovation for all.
- Twin turbo V6 engine (404kW / 628Nm)
- Hand built and expertly tuned engine
- Asymmetrical suspension system
- High capacity braking system
- High Performance 4WD system
The legend is real.
When it comes to controlling all the power, the 370Z offers either a 6-speed close-ratio manual or a 7-speed auto with M-Mode that uses steering wheel mounted, ‘racing style’ paddle shifters to move through the gears. And thanks to SynchroRev Match, a computer that automatically adjusts engine speed, every gear change will be as perfect as a race-driver’s.
The choice is yours
The 2014 Nissan GT-R Premium Edition takes style to a whole new level with a choice of two-tone amber red and black, ivory or all black interiors.
The new ivory luxury interior trim and amber red and black option sports hand stitched coloured leather over the front and back seats, armrest, door trim, glove box, park break and gear selector.
Ready to race. Ready to fly.
Take your Nissan GT-R for a hot lap. Select R Mode and the responsiveness of the gearshift and steering become sharper, the improved traction adds speed.
The transmission shifts the gear ratio into top speed mode, the damping force of the shock absorbers is fixed, and the VDCR maximises the torque distribution in the front and rear. You’ll feel the difference.
Knowledge is power.
The Multi Function Meter uses a 7-inch monitor in the centre display to help you gauge your ultimate driving performance. Choose one of four displays: 1: Vehicle mechanical info like water temperature, oil temperature and oil pressure.
2: Accelerator, brake, steering and Gforces. 3: Optimum gear selection for fuel economy. 4: Trip distance info including HDD satellite navigation with 3D mapping.
What handmade in Japan really means.
The engine and transmission of the Nissan GT-R are built one at a time, by one takumi (the highest skilled of all Japan's craftspeople), working in a dust-free clean room and each engine has a nameplate of the takumi that hand built the engine. Although some other supercars have engines built by hand, no other mass manufactured supercar approaches it the way we do. This is the kind of dedication to precision and attention to detail normally reserved for F1 vehicles.
Some very cool(ing) aerodynamics.
As well as creating downforce, the Nissan GT-R’s aerodynamics work to cool the engine, transmission and brakes.
Two flows of air are created: one cools the entire layer above the undercover, the other creates downforce. This keeps you on the road when you should be flying. How cool is that?
Get focused to outperform
The design of the cockpit is centred around the driver, to concentrate on what matters most – pure driving exhilaration. Start button, paddle shift, Multi Function Meter, stripped back dashboard gauges, tachometer and shift indicator - all pointed right at you to get the most from your driving performance.
Race tested on one of the world's most dangerous circuits.
The best place to test a supercar's speed and safety is incredibly dangerous - the Nürburgting, one of the fastest and most notorious circuits in the world of motor racing. And every time we shave a second or two off the car’s lap time, using exactly the same type of tyres, suspension and specification you buy we get a little bit closer to making the safest supercar available.
Transmission is where the race is won.
Drive in automatic A Mode with different ratios depending on driving conditions and the pressure of your foot on the pedal. You can also use paddle shift manual for complete control. It’s extraordinarily responsive.
The transmission also splits the torque between the front and rear wheels, giving you brilliant cornering performance and attuned acceleration on any road surface.
How Premium Midship design cheats gtavity.
It doesn’t matter how fast a car goes. It needs to stay on the road. This is where Premium Midship design challenges convention. Prevailing theory dictates that sports cars need to be light.
However, we actually use the vehicle’s weight as an advantage, rather than a hindrance. This is how the GT-R handles beautifully at very fast speeds.
Race prepared safety.
The GT-R wouldn't be the supercar it is without high level safety. Super-wide beam headlights give you incredible visibility at night or in the wet. Also the large capacity brake system stops you in an emergency. It works with the Anti-lock Brake System and Vehicle Dynamic Control to prevent wheels from locking up, and keep you on the road. A professional wouldn't settle for less.
