➤2020 Nissan GT-R: The Beast gets new turbos, quicker gearbox - and more…
The latest iteration of Nissan’s iconic sports car, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, comes with alterations that promise to improve handling along with increased performance.
The Nissan GT-R's 3.8-litre V6 engine which is capable of producing 570hp, now comes with a new set of turbochargers. Nissan says they will improve the GT-R's response at low RPMs because of an abradable seal, which provides tighter clearances along with a five per cent increase in efficiency. In addition to this, tweaks to the gearbox will ensure 0.15-second faster gearshift in R-Mode.
The electronically controlled suspension on the updated Nissan GT-R has been re-worked in order to provide better cornering stability along with improved ride quality. In addition, the steering response has been made more linear and precise.
Also, in order to increase the GT-R's stopping power and improve responsiveness during braking, a new brake booster has been fitted which provides an increased initial braking response with minimal pedal movement.
The exhaust manifolds, inspired by racing technology, have optimised turbo flange attachment points which allow for easier servicing without touching either exhaust manifold. There is also a new titanium exhaust muffler, featuring titanium finishers with burnished blue tips.
With the 20MY update, Nissan has re-introduced the Bayside Blue exterior paint colour for the GT-R. It also gets stylish new 20-inch, 20-spoke alloy wheels. The Prestige trim, which currently comes with black, red and tan coloured interiors, now also introduces an elegant grey leather choice. This replaces the previously available ivory colour scheme. Deliveries for the updated Nissan GT-R will commence in November.
