2011 Nissan GT-R Review

Since its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2007, the Nissan GT-R has captivated its customers to access the ultimate supercar. The 2011 Nissan GT-R was developed under the slogan "World's Best Multi-reactive performance and driving pleasure. The exterior has more strength and stability, while the traditional style of the building associated with a striking appearance GT-R has also been updated to provide better aerodynamics. An sporty interior with improved design.

Engine and transmission

The engine power is significantly improved 530PS (390KW) / 6,400 rpm, maximum torque of 612Nm between 3200 and 6000 rpm. The crankcase is cryptic, painted in red to illustrate its performance.

The adoption of ultra-low noble metal catalyst and the engine control unit is equipped with microprocessors, high-capacity cleaner emissions have been achieved. Fuel economy is improved by changing the boost pressure and turbo, timing and mixture ratio of air and a larger diameter exhaust pipes and modified.

SAVE mode is a new system adopted, "snow mode" replacing, which optimizes the drive torque and change the shift schedule for improved fuel economy when driving on highways or roads open . The functions of Snow Mode is also retained.

performance from a standing start can be maximized using the method A. Activated, the driver must select the search mode, press the brake with the same gear, full throttle and release the brake as soon as possible. The system maintains the oil temperature to ensure reliability is maintained and to prevent future use, if the temperature rises above the maximum allowed.

To help control small turning radius at low speed, a new 2-wheel drive will temporarily move the car for the 2 wheel drive, as long as the speed is less than 6 km / h and the steering wheel is turned more than half .


A mast support bar is very rigid and lightweight carbon composite with a honeycomb aluminum, was installed in the engine compartment bulkhead. By connecting the right and left legs to get quickly the suspension of entry, the reactivity of the body is strengthened.
additional support member is mounted on the dashboard on the passenger side. The responsiveness of the vessel was further improved by strengthening the rigidity is achieved in conjunction with the engine compartment.

Suspension and brakes

For the front suspension spring and shock absorber to be modified to improve stabilization of the vertical load on the response of the tire. front angle of incidence is increased to 5 ° 35 6 ° 00 bypass to improve the status of the possibilities, when the control and stability in a straight line.

The effectiveness of rear suspension toe has been amended by changing the height of the roll center to a lower position. This provides a better grip of the inside edge of tires when cornering performance.

Free-piston aluminum shocks has been recently developed, which produces more accurate damping constant to provide a stable road holding and load change, which reacts quickly to the method of driver. Reduced friction damper offers quality and a smoother ride.

To help extend the life of a disc front brake disc is fitted with larger diameter (10 mm Φ390). Developed exclusively by Nissan that offer more resistance to discoloration at high temperatures when driven hard.

Tires and wheels

The Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT has a new tire compound to improve grip. With a renovated structure and rigidity of the tread and sidewalls, the straight-line stability on bumpy roads is greater.

Newly designed, lighter and more rigid forged aluminum wheels, made by the rays are made to improve the responsiveness of the vertical load of tires. Knot inside the wheel has been modified to avoid any deviation caused by the rotation of the motor tires Nissan GT-R improved. On the surface of the wheel, the new color, Hyper Blue Black Chrome, oozes quality and has a performance feel, thanks to a brilliant deep created by a layer of five layers.

Exterior and aerodynamics

Even with a strong and stable chassis, the Nissan GT-R World beat the aerodynamic performance has been improved. Downforce has increased by 10%, while a coefficient of drag is also reduced from 0.27 to 0.26.

Stability is enhanced by an extended bumper and the grille, with building three-dimensional effects.

The front bumper has been redesigned, fins Dual Rectifier that front support increase by about 10% while reducing air resistance inside the engine compartment and increases the flow through a radiator that cools the brakes before. Each page contains an LED headlights equipped with a large reflective surface diameter emits a white light of high intensity.

New rear bumper design low center of gravity has been created and sculptural features at the bottom of the back extended. By extending the rear diffuser, cooling efficiency plan has been improved, and to reduce air resistance.

The cooling capacity of the rear silencer is enhanced, and rear pressure is increased by about 10% by introducing an air intake rear bumper, which eliminates the air in the housing of the rear wheel.

The four finalists have also been extended escape.

A high intensity LED rear fog lamp is now integrated into the enlarged rear diffuser.

Six exterior colors are available, including two new colors - black metal in place of solid Kuro Black Daytona Blue and gray titanium replacement.


Antibody pillow and finisher around the screen navigation system with a single point lines, to improve the image of a sense of quality.

The control panel of the heater is now a real end of the carbon around the switches, which are now all finished in matt black.

The change in palette have changed the characteristics of magnesium.

chrome rings in the business of air conditioning and the console is finished with a sporty, black and smoky.


Despite the Nissan GT-R is a trait of a character up, there is a choice between two different seating choices at no additional cost.

* Recaro black, as its name implies always the name and leather Recaro seats with red side flashes appointed. Complete with a holder and a flash of dark red color shifter

* The second option is a premium leather covered seat available in black or gray. Comes with seat design is a light gray roof providing a sense of lightness

Both places offer a better comfort and cornering safety. In addition, reduced levels of fatigue thighs and lower back, changing the shape and length of the surface. They come from the electronic control forward, backward, and height, and the two heated seat switches intensity levels.


With the new road in the price of £ 69.950 (including 20% ​​VAT) Nissan GT-R is always exceptional performance at a competitive price. The list of standard specifications, at no additional cost "remains as strong as ever with Premium Connect the drive satellite navigation, Bose sound system, iPod ™ docking, storing music on hard drive, Bluetooth phone connectivity, alloy wheels 20 "run-flat tires, air conditioning with individual control air conditioning. Add to that the performance provided by two turbo V6 through the dual-clutch GR6, with the help of system 4-wheel drive , and the way in price, the Nissan GT-R is still untouchable.
