NEW FEAUTERS FOR 2017
Once again the 2017 GT-R raises the bar for ultimate performance. Inside, the GT-R takes a giant step forward with a new design that reduces driver workload, while stepping up to a new level of premium with hand-selected and handcrafted materials. Add in greater power, and a suspension retuned to provide a more supple ride while enhancing handling, and Legendary Exhilaration has never looked better.
From start to finish, each GT-R engine is handcrafted by its own master engine-builder in a climate-controlled "clean room." Each twin-turbo V6 is precisely assembled from lightweight, highly durable aluminum and magnesium parts. It takes the exacting standards of the planet’s most talented and devoted engine builders to produce the engine that has redefined what a supercar can be.
A SUPERCAR THAT SCULPTS THE WIND
Rather than being designed to the demands of aerodynamics, the GT-R sculpts the air to its needs – becoming a force of nature as much as a force to be reckoned with.
REDESIGNED REAR FASCIA
The GT-R’s rear fascia has been extended at the sides to accelerate air away from the back of the bumper, helping to pull hot gases away, to cool the exhaust
RESHAPED SIDE SKIRTS AND C-PILLAR
Redesigning the GT-R’s side skirts helps prevent air flow from being drawn underneath the vehicle. The area around the C-Pillar has been refined to reduce turbulence, and to help accelerate air flow toward the rear of the body.
RE-IMAGINED FRONT END
Larger grille openings allow more cooling air to key components. Reshaping the front fascia helps direct air around the front wheel wells, reducing drag.
Fanatical attention to detail. On GT-R’s finished in Super Silver, a craftsman uses both hands and eyes to inspect the body of the GT-R. To bring out any imperfections, three different lighting sources – fluorescent, halogen and diluted flood lighting – are used to see various types of qualities in the paint as if it were at night, daylight or simply under intense scrutiny.
A tradition of craftsmanship makes the GT-R a supercar that will take your breath away – even when sitting still
DECADES TO PERFECT THINGS YOU TOUCH FOR A SECOND
Turn an air vent that was studied, designed, and developed by a quality expert to operate flawlessly for years. Rotate a switch that’s been subtly etched on the outside to enhance its feel. Or let your eyes travel across a dashboard that comes from a single Nappa leather hide, hand-selected for tone, and free of even the smallest imperfection. This is attention to detail bordering on obsession.
SEMI-ANILINE LEATHER INTERIOR
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.
Available Recaro® leather-appointed front seats are built for performance. These bolstered sport seats help keep you in place, while cutouts in the driver’s seat cushion facilitate leg movement. The distinctive black leather with red accents revs up your interior.
A VITAL SENSE OF CONNECTION
Enhancing the way you get information lets you focus on what matters most – the pure enjoyment of the drive.
DIALED IN LIKE NEVER BEFORE
The Display Commander lets you dial in your world, allowing you to control key functions through GT-R’s multi-touch screen. By rotating the dial, or pushing it to the left or right, you can scroll through all menus, and move selections around the screen.
THE FACE OF PERFORMANCE
The combination meter uses meshing gears as its motif. The tachometer is placed in the center, with the large-scale gear indicator on the upper right, supporting the driver with immediate readability when driving on the circuit
MASTERY EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
FROM THE CLEAN ROOM TO THE TEST TRACK
Carefully crafting each part, thinking of the mind, body, and spirit of the customers who will use their products – that is the spirit of the Takumi, a part Japanese tradition. And that is the human soul in the Nissan GT-R, a supercar that could never be created in a factory that only pursues rationality.
3.8-L TWIN-TURBO V6
THE HEART OF THE LEGEND
Nissan challenged convention at every point of the Nissan GT-R’s development. Instead of a large, heavy engine thirsty for fuel, the Nissan GT-R is powered by an ideally sized, twin-turbocharged 3.8-L V6 that produces a prodigious 565 hp and equally immense 467 lb.-ft of torque. Just as important as the engineering is the actual assembly, which is done by hand by a single master craftsman, whose signature you’ll find on a small, but prominent, plaque.
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 still being fuel-efficient and conscious of the environment.
IHI INTEGRATED TURBOCHARGER
An IHI turbocharger is mounted on each bank of the engine. By combining the exhaust manifold and turbocharger into a single unit, the intake and exhaust gas flow is optimized. A larger intercooler is installed for more-efficient cooling. To ensure there is no turbo lag as torque rises, high-precision electronic controls are employed.
THE PERFECT BLEND OF SIZE AND POWER
CLOSED DECK AND LADDER FRAME STRUCTURE
The cylinder block features a closed deck for strength. For increased strength, a ladder frame structure was also adopted to give the crankshaft added support, important with the engine’s massive torque. Magnesium alloy was selected for the oil pan and rocker cover for its light weight and strength
INDEPENDENT INTAKE AND EXHAUST SYSTEM
For higher horsepower and better response than a naturally aspirated engine, each side of the VR38 features it’s own turbocharger, intercooler, and catalyst. By employing an independent intake and exhaust system for each side of the V6, intake air flow is increased and exhaust back-pressure is decreased.
PLASMA COATING BORE
Innovative plasma-sprayed bores are used in each cylinder instead of traditional cast-iron liners. This enhances cooling, reduces friction and weight while maximizing horsepower and increasing fuel-efficiency. Compared to the cast-iron liner, the overall weight decreased by approximately 6.6 lbs.
OIL COOLER WITH THERMOSTAT
For optimal control of engine cooling, the VR38 features a thermostatically controlled oil cooler system. A scavenger pump is employed to help keep oil flowing to the turbochargers, even during the strong lateral Gs experienced on a racecourse.
HAND-FORMED TITANIUM EXHAUST
GT-R now offers a standard titanium exhaust. Becuase titanium is notoriously difficult to work with, each exhaust is hand-built by a master craftsman, and is specifically designed for an individual vehicle – music to any enthusiast’s ears
PREMIUM MIDSHIP PLATFORM
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
In another break with convention, Nissan GT-R’s Premium Midship Platform places the engine feather 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.
IT SHIFTS THE WORLD OF TRANSMISSIONS IN JUST 0.15 SECONDS
The longer a shift takes, the less time power is being put to the ground. So for maximum acceleration, the GT-R’s paddle-shifted 6-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission can snap off lightning-quick gear changes in just 0.15 seconds when in R-Mode – almost as quickly as you can blink.
DRY SUMP LUBRICATION SYSTEM
To ensure stable lubrication for the transmission even when cornering at high Gs, a dry sump lubrication system is employed. The system sprays transmission oil directly onto the gears, reducing friction and increasing reliability.
TWO CLUTCHES. NO CLUTCH PEDAL
The Nissan GT-R’s 6-speed dual-clutch transmission shifts incredibly quick. How? Inside the transmission, the are separate clutches for the odd (1st, 3rd, 5th) and even (2nd, 4th, 6th) gears. When the car is in an odd-numbered gear, the adjacent even numbered gear is “pre-selected” – ready to make the shift immediately. The transmission is so smart, it even “blips” the throttle on downshifts to match rpm. So even though your left leg may not get much exercise, you’ll have tremendous fun shifting the GT-R.
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.
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 lo-slung, mid-engine supercar. Pure aerodynamic alchemy.
IT STAYS WITHIN THE LINES
Look closely and you can see the obsession. A re-imagined front fascia directs airflow around the front wheel wells to reduce drag. Side sills have been contoured to prevent air from being drawn under the vehicle. A reshaped C-pillar that cleans the airflow around the upper part of the body, and a redesigned rear fascia that helps reduce drag and pulls cooling air around the exhaust.
IT BREAKS 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.
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.
PERFORMANCE WITH A BIAS
Instead of the traditional 50/50 torque split between front and rear axles, the electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive system provides nearly 100% of available torque to the rear wheels, and can send up to 50% of torque to the front wheels. This provides the steering feel and response of a Rear-Wheel Drive vehicle, while giving the added confidence that only AWD can offer. Additionally, VDC continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any oversteer or understeer, and compensates by reducing engine speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels.
THE REAL SECRET OF SPEED
While horsepower and torque are important, awe-inspiring braking power and handling are the real secrets to rapid progress.
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.
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.
FLOATING DISC ROTORS
Along with cross-drilled 15.4" front/15.0" rear rotors to help keep the Nissan GT-R’s brakes cool, you’ll find ingenious diamond-shaped ventilation ribs to pull away heat. The Nissan GT-R also benefits from a full-floating rotor – a racing technology originated by Brembo®. By allowing the outer disc to expand away from the hub under extreme heat, it reduces the tendency of the rotor to warp.
The Nissan GT-R’s rigid forged aluminum 20" wheels, manufactured by RAYS®, utliize knurling inside the wheels to help keep the tires from slipping around the wheels under heavy acceleration or braking. The wheels feature a premium dark (near black) finish, which provides a high-quality, high-performance look.
Obsessive detail also shows up in the design of the GT-R’s Dunlop® SP Sport Maxx® GT 600 DSST CTT high-performance run-flat tires. A tiny block is added to one of the treads to combat tread squirm, and help give a more confident and precise feel at the steering wheel.
MASTERY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Nissan GT-R’s easy-to-use 3-mode system is always ready. Three switches allow for on-the-fly adjustment of specific performance parameters for the transmission, suspension, and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system.
R-Mode is for maximum performance. It sets the transmission for the quickest shifts and adjusts the suspension, shocks, and VDC for high-performance handling.
For daily driving, choose Normal Mode, which sets the transmission, suspension, and VDC for a smooth, refined ride.
Use Save Mode for long-distance driving and gentler torque delivery on slippery surfaces. In Comfort Mode, the damping force of the shock absorbers is variably adjusted for more comfort. Off Mode disengages the VDC system.
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.

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.
ACTIVE & PASSIVE SOUND ENHANCEMENT
LOSE THE NOISE. NOT THE SOUL.
To help reduce outside noise, the GT-R employs a special acoustic windshield that features sound-absorbing technology between the glass layers.
DASH AND INSTRUMENT PANEL
To reduce unwanted sounds from the engine bay, the GT-R adds an insulator underneath the dashboard and sound-absorbing material behind the instrument panel.
WHEEL WELL AND TRUNK
Road and tire noise is reduced with insulating material above the rear wheel wells, as well as noise-dampening material on the floor of the trunk.
ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION
To enhance your drive, available Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) uses information received from the engine, along with a microphone located in the cabin to identify undesirable engine sounds. The system then reproduces an acoustically opposite signal through the sound system, cancelling much of the unwanted noise, letting you savor the invigorating sounds of GT-R’s engine even more.
ACTIVE SOUND ENHANCEMENT
Available Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) monitors engine speed and vehicle dynamics, and enhances the engine note inside the cabin through the audio system’s speakers.
The immense power and capability of the Nissan GT-R comes with a level of safety, control, and convenience features designed to inspire confidence every moment you’re behind the wheel.
With the RearView Monitor, when you back up, a camera mounted discreetly on the rear of the vehicle helps you see what’s directly behind you. The system also includes a convenient wide 180° view for an even better look.
FRONT AND REAR SONAR SENSORS
Parking sonar gives you an added ally in your pursuit of parking, with sensors on all four corners looking out for static objects and giving you an audible warning when you’re getting close.
ZONE BODY CONSTRUCTION
Sometimes a collision is unavoidable. But with Nissan’s Zone Body construction, at least it can be safer for everyone on board. This advanced body construction combines impact-absorbing structures with a high-strength cabin, which helps provide protection for you and your passengers.
SEAT BELT PRETENSIONERS
If your Nissan GT-R senses a collision may be imminent, it can activate pretensioners to “cinch” up the seat belt to help hold you in place. If a collision does occur, seat belt force limiters can “give” a small amount to help reduce the force of impact.
SIX AIR BAGS
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage.
VEHICLE DYNAMIC CONTROL
Advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system not only helps you maintain your steered path, in R-Mode, it actually sends more power to the appropriate wheels when it senses oversteer or understeer, helping you drive with superior power and control.
TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM
All the power in the world is useless if you can’t get any grip. So when TCS senses drive-wheel spin, it responds by helping reduce throttle, which helps you both regain grip and maintain control.
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM
In sudden-braking situations, ABS pumps the brakes quickly to help prevent wheel lockup and help you maintain control.
ELECTRONIC BRAKE FORCE DISTRIBUTION
Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) monitors weight distribution and adjusts rear brake force to compensate for added weight from passengers or cargo.
