2012 Nissan GT-R: Soon to have more power
According to Autoblog the revised 2012 Nissan GT-R is expected to develop in excess of 500HP and 450 pound-feet of torque in a bid to keep the newly revamped Porsche 911 Turbo at bay. Apparently the revised model has been seen around the ‘Ring recently, no doubt in order to lower the GT-R’s infamous lap time of 7:26.
Not much more is known at this stage, but it’s safe to say the VR38DETT Twin Turbo V6 will remain the workhorse, and gain a few tuning changes. Expect retuned suspension, larger brakes, new diffusers and rear wing configuration and minor aerokit changes.
