Press the Nissan GT-R® accelerator and you feel more than raw power. The 545-hp twin-turbo V6 may be massive in strength, yet it’s highly refined, even earning ULEV-II emissions rating. Rather than traditional cast-iron liners, each cylinder features a unique plasma coating on cylinder walls, with an independent intake system for each bank of cylinders. The powerful twin turbo takes advantage of a Premium Midship (PM) design for balance, where much of the engine sits back in the chassis. Uniquely brilliant, built to perform.
Two clutches, no clutch pedal. The GT-R® 6-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission shifts as quickly as 0.15 seconds when in R-Mode. Inside are separate clutches for the odd and even gears. When in an odd-numbered gear, the adjacent even-numbered gear is “pre-selected,” ready to make the shift immediately. Then, to achieve ideal front-to-rear weight distribution, the GT-R® clutches, transmission and transfer case are mounted in the rear of the chassis, creating the world’s first independent rear transaxle for an All-Wheel Drive vehicle.
The Bilstein® DampTronic® uses computerized control to continually adjust shock absorber damping. The system has three driver-selectable driving modes and constantly monitors vehicle speed, lateral acceleration, torque, engine rpm and braking behavior to help provide the ideal ride/handling balance. To match the precision of the other GT-R® suspension components, high-accuracy progressive-rate springs were developed and manufactured to extremely high tolerances.
The GT-R® has massive 15.4" front rotors and 15.0" rear rotors are designed to shed high speeds, so they can easily tame a long downhill run. As the brakes heat up, unique “floating disc” rotors expand freely from their hubs. Diamond-pattern ventilation inside each disc rapidly extract heat and ducting in the wheel wells sweep it away.
A GT-R® exclusive, signature wide-beam headlights offer increased illumination towards the sides of the front of the car and when cornering. The four LED units project a natural looking light and even adjust their illumination pattern based on vehicle speed.
20" super-lightweight forged-alloy wheels have knurled beads that help keep tires from slipping around the wheels under hard acceleration.
The 2015 GTR LED Taillights come with a new sleek design.
For GT-R®, we reinvented how a driver gets performance information. Collaborating with PolyPhony Digital®, creators of the famed Gran Turismo™ racing games, we built an intuitive system that clearly displays performance, cornering, acceleration, and g-force data. It even keeps track of your lap times.
With Nissan GT-R®’s touch-screen navigation system with voice recognition and a high-resolution screen, the world is at your command. It features a hard drive-based system for quick response, while NavTraffic advisories in real time help keep you ahead of the crowd. Keep keep track of the weather with NavWeather.
The Nissan Intelligent Key® lets you tap a button on the door handle to unlock your GT-R®, while your keys stay in your pocket or purse. With the standard Push Button Ignition feature, you just get in, push the button and go.
When you’re backing up, the backup camera displays the area behind the vehicle that’s visible to the camera on the touch-screen of the navigation system or on the audio system’s display. Sometimes it takes forward-thinking features to help you see what might be behind you.
The GT-R® has heated front seats which are appointed with supple black leather, and distinctive synthetic suede inserts provide a striking contrast.
The Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System activates via steering wheel-mounted controls. Now you can keep up connections no matter where the road takes you.
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage.
Standard side-impact supplemental air bags are built into the seats, so they move with you as you adjust your seat. Standard roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help protect you and your passenger by deploying from above.
The ALR/ELR seat belts in the GT-R® are equipped with pretensioners, which are designed to take up slack in the belt automatically and to lock in place when the passenger moves forward at a higher than normal rate of speed.
TPMS monitors tires for low inflation pressure, which can shorten tire life and reduce the load-carrying capabilities of the vehicle.
