This week it’s New York’s turn to host a Motor Show. Last week Nissan teased us with a rear shot of the godzilla and now we know the full story…

Firstly and most importantly the 3.8 litre twin turbo V6 has been boosted from 542 BHP to 562 BHP and a massive 637 Nm of torque. The V6 now features adaptive cylinder shut off.

That increase in power is met with a new titanium exhaust system helping mid range power and it comes with “Active Sound Enhancement” which amplifies the aural delight.

Inside there’s new leather trim, paddle shifters and carbon trim on the centre console. Refinement has been upped due to new soundproofing, naturally due to people moaning about the noise of the drive train…

On the outside the changes are pretty vast, this is the biggest facelift the GT-R has undergone since its 2008 birth.

A new bumper provides more down force, side sills have been widened helping airflow along with a new rear bumper. All this helps keep the GT-R stable at higher speeds, it also sits on 20 inch alloys which supplement new suspension and increased body rigidity.

Pricing starts at £78,030, no news on UK delivery dates but the USA will get it this summer.

Also, no word on how much the weight has been upped due to those ‘refinements’.
