Long recognized, and still today, as the supercar with the best price / performance ratio of the market, the Nissan GT-R offers a little makeover. Indeed, the one for whom the career is far from over is receiving some technical and aesthetic changes. Launched in November 2019, the 2020 Nissan GT-R promises a better engine response at low speeds, 0.15 seconds faster gearshift with R mode and slightly lower fuel consumption. A whole program, but it should not change drastically the benefits of the car that remain at least excellent for a price under the 100’000 euros.
A revised chassis and new turbos
The engineers have therefore made some adjustments to the chassis with a reworking of the controlled suspension to provide better comfort and stability. Management has also been reviewed. It would become more linear and more precise for minimum corrections at the wheel up to 300 km / h. Even more sanitized this GT-R do you say? Under the hood, Nissan has revised the intake manifold, integrated a new titanium exhaust silencer and modified the turbos. The power of the V6 3.8-liter twin turbo remains the same: 570 horsepower. To brake the car, the stroke of the brake pedal has been reduced and it also benefits from new assistance. Nissan has not gone into details at this level.
A small tribute to the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R
So that was for the technical part. For the aesthetic part, the Japanese firm unveils a new gray leather upholstery, optional. New 20-inch new wheels are added to the catalog, as is a color called “Bayside Blue”, a tribute to the famous Skyline R34 GT-R. Apart from that, nothing else to report, except that her replacement is still waiting today. It must be said that the current situation does not really help, then the brand is globally more focused on the renewal of its volume products. Nissan will present the new Juke shortly, while waiting for the next generation of Qashqai, which should be on the lookout for the next decade.
