Handling duties are managed by a sophisticated 4-wheel independent suspension system mounted to high-precision 6-point front and rear subframes. A special Bilstein® DampTronic® driver-adjustable shock absorber system utilizes multiple vehicle information systems to provide appropriate damping forces and a high level of control for a variety of driving situations.

ATTESA E-TS® All-Wheel Drive
Instead of the traditional 50/50 torque split between front and rear axles, the electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive system provides up to 100% of available torque to the rear wheels, and can send up to 50% of torque to the front wheels. This provides the steering feel and response of a rear-wheel vehicle, while giving the added confidence that only AWD can offer.
Dry Carbon Fiber Spoiler
This handmade, dry carbon fiber spoiler is significantly lighter and stiffer than a spoiler made of traditional or “wet” carbon fiber. What does that mean for the GT-R®? First off, lighter is better—every little bit of weight saved on the car means time saved on the track. Secondly, the added stiffness in the spoiler decreases flex and increases stability, which translates into more downforce and better handling. [*]
Please remain seated. Heavily bolstered and featuring integrated headrests, the Black Edition’s black/red leather Recaro® performance seats keep you firmly in place even during the most intense cornering. [*] Subtle red leather accents on the steering wheel, doors, and gearshift complement those distinctive seats, while the bold GT-R® logo in the center of the steering wheel adds a finishing touch.
The Track Edition features a stiffer suspension with specialized Bilstein® Damptronic® gas pressure shocks and higher spring rates. A front spoiler with carbon fiber air ducts increases cooling to the front brakes, and rear brake cooling has also been refined through extensive track testing. [*]
Dry carbon fiber spoiler and trunk lid
A new carbon fiber trunk lid adds stiffness, while weighing nearly half as much as a standard trunk lid. Its smooth surface has been painted so you won’t see a difference, but since lighter equals faster, you’ll feel it on the track. Top it with the dry carbon fiber spoiler for mighty downforce, and increased stability.
Bose® Audio System with Active Noise Control
The 11-speaker Bose® audio system works with the performance features of the GT-R®. The aluminum speaker mounts in the doors give the body rigidity, which has nothing to do with music and everything to do with performance. In the back, two subwoofers between the seats were designed to use the trunk as a giant bass enclosure. New Active Noise Control technology uses a microphone in the ceiling to identify undesirable low-frequency engine sounds and neutralizes them with sound waves of the opposite phase. The result – a quieter driving experience which still preserves the invigorating sounds of engine performance. [*]
Nissan Hard Drive Navigation System
With Nissan GT-R®’s touch-screen navigation system with voice recognition and a high-resolution screen, the world is at your command. It features a hard drive-based system for quick response, while NavTraffic advisories in real time help keep you ahead of the crowd. You can even keep track of the weather with NavWeather or get trusted restaurant ratings and reviews with Zagat Survey.® [*]
With the RearView Monitor, when you back-up, a camera mounted discreetly on the rear of the vehicle helps you see what’s directly behind you. The system also includes a convenient new, wide 180º view, so even parking is a quick and easy affair. [*]
Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System
The Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System activates via steering wheel-mounted controls. Now you can keep up connections no matter where the road takes you. [*]
Nissan Intelligent Key®
The Nissan Intelligent Key® lets you tap a button on the door handle to lock and unlock your GT-R®, while your keys stay in your pocket or purse. With the standard Push Button Ignition feature, you just get in, push the button and go.
Serious about safety
Like every Nissan vehicle, GT-R® comes equipped with a suite of standard safety, driving, and convenience features designed to inspire confidence behind the wheel, and help make every ride better, safer, and more enjoyable.

Engage reverse, and a camera mounted discreetly on the rear of the vehicle shows you what's directly behind you, on the dash-mounted screen in front of you. The system includes a wide 180º view, parking is a quick and easy affair. [*]
Automatic On/Off Headlights
Automatic On/Off Headlights respond to light conditions outside, turning on or off when necessary, and leaving you to concentrate on the road ahead.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
When it comes to tire pressure, TPMS takes away the guesswork. Using an icon on your dash, the system notifies you when tires aren't properly inflated. [*]
Electronic Traction Control System (TCS)
All the power in the world is useless if you can't get any grip. So when TCS senses drive-wheel spin, it responds by helping reduce throttle which helps you both regain grip and maintain control.
Advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)
Most stability control systems cut power or apply the brakes when they sense loss of control. That's fine for the road, but slow going on the track. While cornering with the advanced VDC in R-Mode, it actually sends more power to the appropriate wheels when it senses oversteer or understeer. [*]
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) & Electronic Brake force
In sudden-braking situations, ABS pumps the brakes quickly to help prevent wheel lockup and help you maintain control, while EBD monitors weight distribution and adjusts rear brake force to compensate for added weight from passengers, or cargo.
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS)
The AABS includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant classification sensor. Their inflation rate adjusts based on crash severity and seat belt usage. [*]
Supplemental Air Bags
Built into the front seats, two side-impact supplemental air bags move with you as you adjust your seating position. Above, roofmounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for outboard occupants. [*]
LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren)
LATCH is another way we're working to keep children safe. The system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints without having to use seat belts or a locking chip.
