Nissan GT-R is a sports car made by Nissan, issued in Japan on December 6, 2007, the United States on July 7, 2008, and worldwide in March 2009. Along with the production of Nissan GT-R, Wald International manufactures aftermarket body kits to enhance exterior and interior appearance.
The Nissan GT-R is the latest sports car made in Japan and uses a Twin-Turbo V6 engine, and is the successor to the ranks of the Nissan Skyline GT-R
The Nissan GT-R uses the VR38DETT, 3799 cc (3.8 L) DOHC V6 engine. Two parallel turbochargers add power induction. The GT-R produced in 2007 to 2010 produced 485 PS (357 kW; 478 hp) at 6400 rpm with torque of 434 lb⋅ft (588 N⋅m) at 3200-5200 rpm. This machine also meets the Vehicle standards with Ultra Low Emissions from the California Air Resources Board. An empty weight of 1730 kg (3810 lb) or 1736 kg (3827 lb) with a side air bag can be achieved thanks to the use of a steel and aluminum chassis for the bonnet, luggage and doors. The 6-speed semi-automatic dual clutch transmission designed by BorgWarner is mounted behind. This transmission was made by Aichi Machine Industry and synergized with the ATTESA E-TS system to provide power for all four wheels. There are three shift modes that can be selected according to the situation and conditions. In 2010, power output and engine torque were increased to 390 kW (530 PS; 520 hp) 6400 rpm and 612 N · m (451 lbf · ft) at 3200–6000 rpm. The model produced in 2012 was further enhanced to 404 kW (549 PS; 542 hp at 6400 rpm and torque 628 N · m (463 lbf · ft) (3200-5800 rpm). In the future, there is a possibility that there will be a hybrid version from GT-R.
Nissan GT-R is inspired by the giant Gundam robot series. Nakamura also stated that the GT-R is a unique car because it does not come from a copy of a sports car designed in Europe, but truly reflects Japanese culture. Nakamura noted that the square lines and ventilation of the GT-R were influenced by the Gundam robot design. American Nissan designers sculpt three-quarters of the vehicle’s back, while their European designers sculpt the roofline. Polyphony Digital, creator of the Gran Turismo video game racing series, was involved in developing the value of the GT-R itself, which has been contracted to design the GT-R multifunctional dash screen display.
