Bruhl, 19. October 2010 – with a small facelift, nissan wants to keep the sports car GT-R currently. Three years after his idea were easily handled on the japanese coupe suspension, interior and engine.
The performance of the biturbo V6 rose from 485 to 530 hp at 6400 rpm. Also the maximum torque rose from 588 to 612 nm in the range of 3200 to 6000 rpm. A new catalyst and other engine control electronics ensure that the GT-R complies with US sulev exhaust standards. By changing boost prere and valve timing, the consumption of consumption has been lowered, but the values measured by the european standard is missing. So far, the GT-R 12.4 l / 100 km used – a similarly strong porsche 911 turbo comes with 11.6 l / 100 km.
For lower consumption, a new SAVE mode of the six-stage dual-clutch transmission is also to contribute, which optimizes the switching behavior on long motorway taps. The spring rates, stobbers and stabilizers on the front axle were also modified, also the caster angle was increased, which the traction should increase. Thus, however, a somewhat steering steering is synonymous normally. The lowering of the rolling center on the rear axle should also, says nissan, "to increase the traction in curves and to give the driver a direct driving vessel ". However, a traction problem was rarely allowed to have the sports car, despite its high performance, because with too little grip on the rear axle, the front wheels are switched on. Especially since with the transaxle construction anyway more weight than ual on the rear axle, which the traction continues to improve.
