The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO features the same high power and performance of the previous model, with upgrades to the handling, aerodynamics and interior design. The twin turbo 3.8L V6 600 horsepower engine enables the NISMO to race from 0 to 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds. Nissan lovers may be disappointed that the numbers aren’t higher than last year, although they should still be satisfied by this top of the line vehicle.
The new inclusions are an enlarged front grille that allows for higher air intake and the canards improve air-flow and downforce. Retuned shock absorbers, springs and stabilisers increase the speed and overall handling.
The most noticeable changes are to the interior design. Nissan has removed more than half of the centre-stack buttons, replacing them with a console-mounted central control knob. The seats are upholstered with Recaro leather and red synthetic suede inserts. The same suede lines the dashboard. The 2017 NISMO will be available in four colours: Jet black, Super silver, Solid red and Pearl white. There is currently no word on price, although it should be comparable to last years model. What we do know is that Nissan continue to impress.
