Brings in pieces Nissan closer to us that the time for a comprehensive GT-R revision has come so slowly. And when the standard variants of the 2007 debuted super sports car received a facelift - as already shown in the spring, then the Nismo had to follow.
The optically carefully handled Nissan is no longer suitable for the regulars' table. As exciting as Nismo chief engineer Hiroshi Tamura may be to talk about the numerous improvements to the beefy street sweeper - the 441 kW / 600 PS so far remain. However, this should in no way prevent him from giving amateur racers better lap times in the future. Because a stiffening of the body structure, especially in the area of the C-pillar, should bring more stability to the driving behavior. Keyword driving behavior. This area seems to have been a very special concern for the developers - it is not for nothing that they once again worked on the entire setup. Revised adaptive dampers and springs plus stabilizers will soon provide significantly more driving pleasure.
The changed layout of the front spoiler has more than just visual reasons - the airflow will soon be fanned into the six-cylinder 3,8-liter twin turbo more effectively in order to cool it better. After all, stressful tracks are home to a GT-R and not the promenade.
But of all places it will be used again and again in the future, because just like the top model for Nissan is an image-forming measure, the all-wheel drive should be a matter of prestige for some less active customers. Which raises the question of whether it can also be used in everyday life without restrictions. Certainly he is restricted. For aesthetes and functionalists, for whom the interior was previously both too dreary and too confused, the group had the interior designers come up again.
In fact, even with a fleeting glance, the interior already looks tidier. A comparison shows that the area with the previously arbitrarily distributed buttons in large numbers has disappeared. Of the 27 touch buttons, only 11 remain. The multifunction display located above the control unit has also grown significantly in size and appears to be more integrated since an alternative place was also found for the ventilation nozzle. Lavishly used Alcantara dashboard cladding also gives the passenger compartment an unusually elegant touch.
From the beginning of next year, the renovated GTN Rismo, which costs around 150.000 euros, should roll off the assembly line, one per day.
