The Nissan GT-R seldom sits still, whether on the track or in the engineering department. And the Japanese automaker appears ready to give the sports car one last tweak before it rolls out an all-new model, likely for 2018.
Known internally as the R35, Nissan is teasing the debut of an updated GT-R ahead of its news conference at the New York International Auto Show next week. Don’t be surprised to see it get a few minor exterior tweaks, as well as a bit more power than the current, 545-hp version.
Dubbed Godzilla by its fans, the Nissan GT-R is meant to give challenge to a variety of ultra-high-performance competitors, from the Chevrolet Corvette to the Audi R8 and Porsche 911. Like the ‘Vette, the Japanese model has a significant price advantage over its European rivals.
