2011 Nissan GT-R Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, The base GT-R has been dropped, leaving the Premium as the only model for 2011. Nissan has added rear cooling ducts to enhance cooling performance around the rear floor. Additional changes include a suspension retuned for a better ride, double clear coat on the fascias, and standard auto on/off headlamps, speed-sensitive wipers, USB iPod interface, Bluetooth audio, and XM NavTraffic and NavWeather capability.
The Nissan GT-R is the carmakers official move into the world of supercars. It has sixty to zero braking that is exceptional and an impressive zero-to-sixty acceleration. It is exceptional in its quarter mile timing too. The vehicle houses a 3.8-Liter V-6 engine that is twin turbocharged. It offers 489 horsepower. The engine is joined to a hand-assembled dual-clutch auto tranny as well. In addition, the torque flow is flawless.
The GT-R has a rear mount trans axle offering AWD functions. The latter improves vehicular weight, acceleration, handling, and braking. On the track and off the track the vehicle’s Brembo brakes are outstanding, even when running laps at Nurburgring. The GT-R offered the fastest production time ever at the Nurburgring track. It is exceptional, well designed, light, nimble, aerodynamically crafted, rigid, and its exterior styling is elegant. The exterior is made of meshed steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber materials.
Nissan designers set out to pen a distinctive supercar, not a typical low-slung exotic; thus, the GT-R is chunkier and more muscular than, say, a Ferrari. It intentionally lacks sophistication, instead looking mean, techno, and macho.
The GT-R features a leather-adorned cabin for four, PlayStation-inspired multifunction display, nav system, Bose audio, heated seats, and Bluetooth. The driver’s seat slides nine inches and raises 1.2 inches. The steering wheel both tilts and telescopes 2.4 inches.
The GT-R’s handbuilt 3.8-liter V-6 uses plasma-coated cylinder bores to ensure optimal efficiency and twin IHI turbochargers to produce 485 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque. Its six-speed dual-clutch auto, also handbuilt, seamlessly transmits power via an ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system. A Brembo brake system, along with an all-aluminum suspension with Bilstein dampers, provide race-worthy braking and handling.
In addition to front, side, and side-curtain airbags, the GT-R is equipped with a tire-pressure monitoring system, four-wheel anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, and front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters.
