3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6 engine
Press the Nissan GT-R® accelerator and you feel more than raw power. The 545-hp twin-turbo V6 may be massive in strength, yet it’s highly refined, even earning ULEV-II emissions rating. Rather than traditional cast-iron liners, each cylinder features a unique plasma coating on cylinder walls, with an independent intake system for each bank of cylinders. The powerful twin turbo takes advantage of a Premium Midship (PM) design for balance, where much of the engine sits back in the chassis. Uniquely brilliant, built to perform.
Dual clutch 6-speed transmission with three driver-selectable modes
Two clutches, no clutch pedal. The GT-R® 6-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission shifts as quickly as 0.15 seconds when in R-Mode. Inside are separate clutches for the odd and even gears. When in an odd-numbered gear, the adjacent even-numbered gear is “pre-selected,” ready to make the shift immediately. Then, to achieve ideal front-to-rear weight distribution, the GT-R® clutches, transmission and transfer case are mounted in the rear of the chassis, creating the world’s first independent rear transaxle for an All-Wheel Drive vehicle.
ATTESA E-TS® All-Wheel Drive (AWD)
Instead of the traditional 50/50 torque split between front and rear axles, GT-R’s 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.
Bilstein® DampTronic® suspension system with three driver-selectable modes
The Bilstein® DampTronic® uses computerized control to continually adjust shock absorber damping. The system has three driver-selectable driving modes and constantly monitors vehicle speed, lateral acceleration, torque, engine rpm and braking behavior to help provide the ideal ride/handling balance. To match the precision of the other GT-R® suspension components, high-accuracy progressive-rate springs were developed and manufactured to extremely high tolerances. [*]
Advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with three driver-selectable modes
Most stability control systems cut engine power or apply the brakes when they sense a loss of control. That's fine for the road, but slow going in competition conditions. While cornering with the advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system in R-Mode, it actually sends more power to the appropriate wheels when it senses oversteer or understeer, helping to keep it on the steered course, a much quicker way to go in track conditions. [*]
Nissan/Brembo® braking system
The GT-R® has massive 15.4" front rotors and 15.0" rear rotors are designed to shed high speeds, so they can easily tame a long downhill run. As the brakes heat up, unique “floating disc” rotors expand freely from their hubs. Diamond-pattern ventilation inside each disc rapidly extract heat and ducting in the wheel wells sweep it away. [*]
Multi-LED headlights with Adaptive Front lighting System and signature lighting
Developed exclusively for GT-R,® the new headlights feature four LED units to create an extremely natural light, the color of daylight, while also offering increased illumination. The super-wide-beam headlights expand the area of illumination toward the sides of the front of the car, enhancing visibility, especially when cornering. The headlights also adjust their illumination pattern relative to vehicle speed.
LED Daytime Running Lights
Make a visual statement with powerful LED Daytime Running Lights. Twelve high-intensity lights enhance the look of your GT-R® and increase vehicle presence when the headlights are off.
The Nissan GT-R® sports efficient, high-intensity, multi-LED headlights that create a distinctive “lightning” motif, generating a striking exterior visual signature. With such a unique visual reference, the GT-R®’s road presence is enhanced, particularly in low-light and at nigh—while the fitment of the new headlights help gives the driver increased visibility. At the rear, the GT-R’s distinctive four-ring tail light signature now forms coherent circles of illumination, giving the GT-R an equally distinctive appearance, making it easily recognizable to fellow owners and enthusiasts.
20" Super-lightweight forged-alloy RAYS® wheels
20" super-lightweight forged-alloy wheels have knurled beads that help keep tires from slipping around the wheels under hard acceleration. [*]
Exclusively developed tires, nitrogen-filled at factory
Consider everything you expect from a tire—great grip, smooth ride, consistent performance—then add the necessity of taming 545 horsepower along with one of the most advanced powertrains and responsive suspensions Nissan has ever built. The Dunlop® SP Sport MAXX GT600 DSST CTT high-performance tires are filled with nitrogen, rather than conventional air, because nitrogen significantly reduces pressure changes during high-performance driving. [*]
Premium Midship (PM) platform with hybrid unibody
By using a powerful twin-turbo V6 rather than a larger and heavier V8 or V12, the Nissan GT-R® exploits its PM design for ultimate balance. In the PM design, much of the engine sits well back in the chassis behind the front axle – for crisper turn-in, quick steering response and overall balance. The lighter, more compact engine also pays dividends in performance and other interior room.
Body-color rear spoiler
By channeling air both over and under the factory-installed and painted rear spoiler, the GT-R® creates downforce on the rear wheels, further tightening its grip on the road.
Aerodynamic undertrays with vented carbon-fiber composite rear diffuser
One of the greatest Nissan GT-R® aerodynamic breakthroughs is nearly invisible. With traditional vehicles, air hitting components underneath the vehicle creates drag – slowing the car and creating lift – reducing grip and traction. By using a series of composite panels beneath the Nissan GT-R® (a technique derived from racecars), cooling air can be channeled to the running gear, while the underside remains clear of obstructions, creating downforce that literally pulls the car to the road. [*]
Driver-configurable Multi-Function Display system
For GT-R®, we reinvented how a driver gets performance information. Collaborating with PolyPhony Digital®, creators of the famed Gran Turismo™ racing games, we built an intuitive system that clearly displays performance, cornering, acceleration, and g-force data. It even keeps track of your lap times. [*]
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 discreet camera mounted 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. [*]
Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition
The Nissan Intelligent Key® lets you tap a button on the door handle to 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.
Leather-appointed front seats with synthetic suede inserts
The GT-R® has heated front seats which are appointed with supple black leather, and distinctive synthetic suede inserts provide a striking contrast.
Leather-wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and parking brake lever
With bold interior touches like the black leather steering wheel, shift knob and emergency brake handle, the aggressive exterior presence is mirrored on the inside.
Carbon-fiber and charcoal brushed-metal interior trim
The GT-R® interior sports a sleek trim of carbon-fiber and charcoal brushed-metal throughout, highlighting the ergonomic, modern design of the performance cockpit.
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. [*]
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 Advanced Air Bag System

3-point ALR/ELR passenger seat belt system (ELR for driver)
The ALR/ELR seat belts in the GT-R® are equipped with pretensioners, which are designed to take up slack in the belt automatically and to lock in place when the passenger moves forward at a higher than normal rate of speed.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with individual tire pressure display
