Preview of Nissan GT-R Sports Car

Japanese car maker Nissan Motor Co., Ltd (TYO:7201) is coming with one of the much awaited sports cars, Nissan GT-R. The sports car is equipped with some of today’s best technologies and comes with excellent specs. Two controls are given for the positioning of the electric seat. The driver can get a good amount of information from its customizable electric display while driving the car. The amount of information is more than enough that a driver could ask for while driving a sports car. The driver can have a better control over the car while driving, taking help from 11 different screens which are assigned to monitor different functioning of the car such as oil pressure, temperature for the engine, the gearbox, turbo boost, the torque split front to rear, lateral G readings and lap times.

It boasts a zero-to-100-kilometres-an-hour time of 3.5 seconds and a seven-minute-38-second lap time around the Nürburgring's Nordschleife, which is the benchmark for sports car performance and where the GT-R has bested the Corvette Z06 and the Porsche 911 Turbo.

Exiting the pits with the dual-clutch six-speed gearbox in manual mode, the upshifts are rifle action quick at 0.18 seconds, but they are also shock-free, which is quite a surprise given the fact that 480 horsepower is being channelled to the track by way of massive Bridgestone Potenza tires.

The power delivery is so smooth and linear that I don't feel an overwhelming rush as the car speeds up, but, trust me, I'm moving. Another factor at play is that the sound of the engine at full throttle is relatively muted, which is typical of a turbocharged car, so there's not the war cry or high-pitched wail of a naturally aspirated engine at full song.

There are some more interesting and high tech features being offered with Nissan GT-R. So, naturally the price is a bit high. Priced at $83,000, the car provides a lot of high end offers for the sports car lovers. The car does not create extra sound which is very common among the sports car. It is very fast and smooth which would make its users feel comfortable and experience the speed they are looking for. So, I guess, many would not bother to $83,000 and go for it. Nissan has the production capacity of 1,000 GT-R cars per month. Now, let us see if the car can attract the sports car fans and beings out some monetary success for Nissan.
