The 2012 Nissan GT-R is a magical piece of metal, though it doesn’t entirely look like one at first glance. The 2012 Nissan GT-R styling doesn’t exactly press its exotic-car case. Tomahawked sheet metal cuts an interesting, not gorgeous, shape, and carbon fiber trim gives the plain interior just a dab of intrigue in the 2012 Nissan GT-R.
It’s all put together with care, though, and unlike some other supercars, the 2012 Nissan GT-R has great room for people in front, and a bit of room for small people in back, as well as a useful trunk. Nothing rivals its straight-line performance even at five times the 2012 Nissan GTR pricing, and brilliant handling makes its 0-60 mph times of under three seconds all the more thrilling. This year the 2012 Nissan GT-R expands its performance envelope even farther.
As the representative of Nissan’s latest technology, the 2012 Nissan GT-R packs some pretty serious hardware. 2012 Nissan GTR specifications including a fire-breathing twin-turbo V6, a dual-clutch automated manual transmission, an advanced all-wheel-drive system and a sport-focused suspension with adaptive dampers. The 2012 Nissan GT-R performance numbers push it into supercar category, yet the 2012 Nissan GTR cost maintains a significantly lower price point. Power output of this 2012 Nissan GT-R rises to 530 horsepower (45 hp more than last year) and 488 pound-feet of torque (up from 434) thanks to the combination of revised turbo boost and more free-flowing intake and exhaust systems.
The already impressive brakes also have been enlarged slightly to better deal with the added performance potential. The 2012 Nissan GT-R appearance gets a mild freshening that goes beyond just a few cosmetic tweaks. A reshaped front fascia improves cooling of the engine and brakes, while other bodywork changes reduce overall aerodynamic drag and increase down force. Nissan says the new wheels on the 2012 Nissan GT-R are both lighter and stronger than before. High-intensity LED running lights might be the most visually noticeable difference for the 2012 Nissan GT-R model, however.
Even so, the 2012 Nissan GT-R is an amazing car, as easy to drive as a Nissan Altima yet able to easily match the performance of $500,000 supercars. If you take the 2012 Nissan GTR MSRP as a base line for comparison, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 can keep up with the 2012 Nissan GT-R, but only if commanded by a truly gifted pilot. The Porsche 911 is competitive in regard to cost, but only the more expensive models (notably the Porsche 911 Turbo) can match it. In the end, the triple threat of performance, technology and price means there’s pretty much nothing like the 2012 Nissan GT-R.
