With bookings already commenced last month, 2017 Nissan GT-R sales have already commenced in India, ahead of its launch next month. A few units of the latest GT-R have already arrived in the garages, including that of John Abraham, reports Bollywood Hungama.
John Abraham, who is also the brand ambassador of Nissan India, is believed to be the first customer of the new GT-R. Though the price is under wraps, it is believed to be priced at INR 2 crore. The website also reports that John has set-up a special garage with air-condition for the GT-R.
The latest iteration of the Godzilla made its world premiere at the New York Motor Show in March this year. Nissan’s halo car has received revolutionary styling changes but the instantly recognisable silhouette has been retained. Performance has been improved as against the older GT-R.
The revised front fascia retains the peeled back headlamp but the detailing is different. The hexagonal front grille receives a chrome V-Motion element which has now become Nissan’s signature touch. The profile has been carried forward intact save for new alloy wheels.
The rear fascia too feels pretty familiar with the trademark quad circular combination lights and complementing tailpipes. A massive spoiler and black finished diffuser round off the exterior design. Inside, the 2017 GT-R gets reduced number of buttons, larger touchscreen infotainment display and revised seats for enhanced comfort.
Nissan claims that the performance and driving comfort has been enhanced compared to the previous model. The GT-R continues to be powered by the front-mounted 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo petrol engine which produces 20 PS more than the outgoing model at 570 PS. The torque output has also been improved marginally to 637 Nm.
