It looks like the 2017 Nissan GT-R has received a series of upgrades both under the hood and inside the cabin, and if you know anything about the Nissan GT-R, it’s that it was already very impressive in its original configuration. The main performance upgrades concern the engine’s cooling system and its horsepower count, which has received a slight bump. To be more specific, the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 now features 585 horsepower and 471 lb ft of torque, all of which are kept in check by a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox that has also received a few upgrades.
As far as looks are concerned, the deep front splitter, dual-paired exhaust outlets and new air vents immediately stand out, not to mention the revamped signature quad circular lamps and various interior revisions that are meant to enhance the driver’s and passengers’ comfort. The new dashboard is enveloped in Nappa leather and incorporates a large 8.0-inch capacitive center touchscreen display. Moreover, the new Display Command center and the user-friendly air vent actuators are a nice touch, while the redesigned seats offer more support and comfort while being considerably more lightweight.
The upgraded version of the 2017 Nissan GT-R will become available in a stunning new Blaze Metallic Orange colorway, which complements the car’s aggressive body quite well.
