The New Nissan GT-R has appeared as the 2013 model with the outstanding features in performance, efficiency and refinement. By improving the GT-R's engine efficiency, its fuel economy has been raised to 8.6km/ℓ (tested under Japan's 10-15 mode) or 8.7km/ℓ (in JC08 mode) and reduced CO2 emissions (267g/km in JC08 and 270g/km in 10-15model), while engine output has been significantly improved to 404kW (550ps)/6,400rpm with maximum torque of 632Nm (64.5kgm) from 3,200 to 5,800 rpm.
To improve intake efficiency, air flow resistance has been reduced by adding an intake manifold fitted to the head of each unit and the use of resin in the enlarged air intake duct for the intercooler.
A more compact underfloor catalyzer enabled to reduce air flow resistance. A newly-designed metallic sodium-filled valve has been adopted to improve exhaust valve cooling performance while valve control timing, the air mixture ratio and ignition timing have also been improved.
Suspension has been set asymmetrically for the left and right sides for the 2013 Year Model.
A harder spring rate on the left side has been set for the front suspension. For the rear suspension, the arm has been installed upward on the left side and downward on the right. It realized for the driver to enjoy cornering stability and riding comfort by providing improved responsiveness and smoothness.
An Alternative to Spec-V
"For TRACK PACK" is a custom option for the Pure Edition designed for customers who want to enjoy a more Spartan-feel driving experience in their Nissan GT-R. The pack provides the suspension, air guide for brake cooling (front and rear), and aluminum-alloy wheels made by Rays (with black quartz chrome color coating) and the front spoiler with carbon air duct has been exclusively made for this edition and is installed as a set. Those equipment were jointly developed with NordRing company in Japan; President, Toshio Suzuki; a development driver of GT-R.
