Overview

The revised GT-R is even faster than its predecessor and still a supercar bargain

THE people’s supercar has been given an overhaul.

Nissan’s GT-R, which it describes as a supercar for anyone, anytime, anywhere now has even more power, torque, revised suspension and more upmarket interior.

It also uses a little less fuel, but few owners are likely to care about that. The 390kW and 612Nm generated by the 3.8-litre twin turbo V6 being fed through all four wheels is likely to be of far more interest.

All this means the revised GT-R can blast from zero to 100km/h in just 3.0 seconds, which places it well into supercar territory.

It is still far cheaper than Italian and German supercars, but is getting more expensive and the single GT-R model now available costs $168,800.

THE new-age Nissan GT-R finally touched down in Australia in early 2009. Overseas demand for the Porsche 911 Turbo rival meant it arrived several months after grey imports started winning motorsport events in Australia. The result of a $450 million development, the GT-R was powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 that generated 357kW and 588Nm. It used a six-speed dual-clutch transmission that fed its power through a rear-mounted transfer case and limited-slip differential to all four wheels.
