If you don’t believe that future has come, then you probably haven’t seen new Nissan GTR. The 2017 Nissan GT-R hasn’t been launched yet but there is plenty of information available about this beast and (as you can see by yourself) Nissan also released several photos which were taken during the test. You may not like Nissan, but you must admit their cars have magnificent design. Not just GTR, but there are also several other model that can brag with their outlook. However, new Nissan GTR 2017 offers a lot more than that.
GTR has quite a long history. Perhaps you don’t remember but this car was banned from touring car racing. That happened back in 1992. Allegedly Nissan GTR was banned due to great performances it showed. It is the most powerful vehicle manufactured by Nissan and surely one of the strongest in the world. Although there is a lack of information about the 2017 model we don’t doubt it will live up to our expectations. Under the hood there are going to be some surprises. There are some rumors that new six-cylinder will be used and we are still waiting for the official confirmation.
2017 Nissan GT-R Specs
Even though information about the engine is nothing more than a speculation we decided to present the V6 we wrote about in the previous paragraph. This engine unit is very light since it is made from magnesium and aluminum compounds. Therefore it should have slightly different performances than regular engines. As a matter of fact, there are two possible six-cylinders. On one side there is 3.8l that comes with an output of 600 horsepower. Torque of this engine is still unknown but according to some rumors it should be more than satisfying.
On the other hand, the 2017 Nissan GTR is believed to get the 3.0-liter twin-turbo petrol unit. This one should be accompanied with one electric motor so it means it is going to be a hybrid model. This combination should provide few HP less that the first choice, 550 horsepower to be accurate. There are no details about the driving system but transmission is expected to be dual-clutch 6-speed automatic for both engines. When it comes to safety you should be worried about it since it will be equipped with the latest braking system known as Nissan/Brembo braking system.
Interior and Exterior
Nissan GTR always comes in at least three different trim levels and 2017 model won’t be an exception. This year we are going to have Nismo, Premium and Black Edition. We won’t talk about each one of them, but provide only general characteristic of the 2017 Nissan GT-R. As usual, it will come with four seats (two at front and two more at the back). 20-inch alloy wheels have become standard for the GTR, as well as LED running lights and keyless entry.
There is going to wide range of colors but we are not sure what colors are going to be available.
Inside new 2017 Nissan GT-R will be equipped with standard equipment and features, such as keyless ignition, dual-zone automatic climate, seven-inch touch panel, rearview camera and many more. Perhaps the most interesting feature is active noise cancellation. Seat material will depend on the trim level but they will be wrapped with either leather or cloth. Among these three trim levels we definitely recommend Black Edition, especially if you like elegance.
Nissan GT-R Release Date and Price
Price is always sensitive topic, especially if we talk about the 2017 Nissan GT-R. It will cost between $101,000 and $150,000, depending on the version and equipment. We shouldn’t expect it will be released soon. According to some sources new GTR will not hit the market before September.
