Nissan GT-R 2011/2012 tweaks leak outWed, 25 Aug 2010 00:00:00 -0700
The Nissan GT-R 2011 (2012 MY)
Nissan don’t seem to be able to stop tweaking, nipping and tucking the Nissan GT-R, so it comes as no surprise to see that there are more changes planned for the 2012 MY (for which read 2011 everywhere bar the USA). We’re expecting those to surface around the same time this year – November – as the 2010 Nissan GT-R updates did last year
GTR Blog are reporting the changes well ahead of anything official, but they look as if they’ve got some solid information so it’s worth repeating for the many GT-R nuts out there.
Having nipped and tucked endlessly, it looks like Nissan are going to continue the trend for next year’s GT-R. Up front the GT-R gets trendy daytime running LEDs sunk in to housings in the bumper. The GT-R gets a new rear diffuser which gives 10% more downforce and new Ray alloys which save 3kg a corner.
There appear to be a couple of new colour options – Aurora Flare Blue Pearl and Nebula Opal Black. – and the RAYS can be ordered in Hyper Blue Black or Hyper Titanium. As usual there is the expectation of an extra horse or two as the GT-R’s oily bits get another laptop tweak.
Whatever Nissan do to the GT-R, it is still the bargain supercar of the century. Which would you rather have, a Nissan GT-R and a holiday home in Cornwall or a Lexus LF-A?
