A Supercar That Sculpts The Wind

A Supercar That Sculpts The Wind

Relentless tuning of the GT-R's aerodynamics maintains its incredibly clean coefficient of drag to a super-slippery 0.26, yet provides consistent downforce. While you see a substantial, powerful supercar, to the wind, it punches through the air like a low-slung, mid-engine supercar. Pure aerodynamic alchemy.

Premium Midship Platform

Premium Midship Platform

In another break with convention, Nissan GT-R's Premium Midship Platform places the engine farther back in the chassis for better handling. This unique layout also mounts the transmission with the transfer case in the rear of the Nissan GT-R, creating the world’s first independent rear transaxle for an All-Wheel Drive vehicle.

Traveling At The Speed Of GT-R

Once again, GT-R rethinks the way the driver receives information. Multiple, easily accessed screens are an innovative way the driver can get immediate feedback to key performance parameters. The result is engaging and informative – providing quick readability combined with the flexibility of multiple customizable displays.

565-HP VR38 Twin-Turbo Engine

An engine designed to answer the demands of a supercar for the 21st century, the VR38 is high-performance, while being ideally-sized for lighter weight and optimal placement in the chassis.

Multi-LED Headlights with Adaptive Front lighting System

Multi-LED Headlights

The headlights feature four LED units to create an extremely natural light, replicating daylight, while also offering increased illumination. The super-wide-beam headlights expand the area of illumination toward the sides of the car, enhancing visibility, especially when cornering.

Hybrid Body Structure

Multi-Material Body Structure

The GT-R's body gets maximum strength from Carbon Aluminum Die-cast Steel, a combination of carbon fiber, die-cast aluminum and steel. For structural rigidity, aluminum die-cast door inner panels are employed to decrease the amount of deformation during a crash. Die-cast aluminum is also used for the front strut housing and in the front suspension. For added structural rigidity, the suspension’s strut tower bar is made of lightweight carbon composite containing aluminum honeycomb.

Rearview Monitor

Rearview Monitor

With the rear view monitor, when you back up, a camera mounted discreetly on the rear of the vehicle helps you see what's directly behind you.

More Than One Way To Command The Display

More Than One Way To Command The Display

In addition to its touch functionality, you can control the 8" touch-screen using the Display Commander. Positioned just behind the gearshift, it lets you toggle up and down, side to side, roatate, scroll through and control your infotainment system, all without the need to look down or touch the display screen.

Completely Captivating

Completely Captivating

A tradition of craftsmanship makes the GT-R a supercar that will take your breath away – even when sitting still. Available semi-aniline leather appointments on the center console, door panels, and shift lever surround you in comfort, while available semi-aniline leather and double-stitching on the seats are a tactile and visual feast.

Nissan Intelligent Key

Nissan Intelligent Key®

The Nissan Intelligent Key let you tap a button on the door handle to lock and unlock your Nissan GT-R, while your keys stay in your pocket or purse. With the standard Push Button Ignition feature, you just get in, push the button and go.


Basic Warranty 36 month / 36,000 miles

Every Nissan is backed by a 36-month/36,000-mile limited vehicle coverage and a 5-year/60,000-mile limited powertrain coverage.

Blistein® DampTronic®

A special Blistein® DampTronic® driver-adjustable shock absorber system utilizes multiple vehicle information systems to provide appropriate damping forces and a high level of control for a variety of driving situations.

Brake Fast and Safely

The brakes feature 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers for stronger, more equal clamping power – something you'd expect to see on an all-out competition machine. For extreme rigidity with light weight, the caliper is machined from a single one-piece "monoblock" of aluminum.

Anywhere. Anytime.

When most supercars stay in the garage or make a hasty retreat from the less-than-ideal conditions, the Nissan GT-R powers through, with one of the most advanced All-Wheel Drive and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) systems ever used in a road car.

Made To Break All The Rules

The average car has exposed working gear under the car, where wind whips around, creating lift, and slowing you down. The Nissan GT-R, of course, isn't an average car. Its underbody is virtually covered by composite panels, giving it a flat, aerodynamic surface. At the front of the car, the flat underbody is accelerating the air and channeling it over the brakes, cooling them down. At the back, a carbon-fiber diffuser takes that accelerated air and slows it down, creating a vacuum effect that helps the Nissan GT-R stick to the road.
