Making its global debut at the New York Motor Show earlier this year, the 2017 Nissan GT-R facelift was launched in India today. New Nissan GT-R not only gets exterior and interior updates, but also has a more powerful engine.
Nissan has had plans to launch the GT-R in India for some years now. But the ‘Godzilla’ has somehow managed to stay away from our country. But, no complains now. The car is finally here. Nissan India’s brand ambassador John Abraham was also seen at the launch event in Mumbai.
Compared to the old GT-R, the new one is more sharper, refined and powerful. It gets an updated exterior with new V-motion grille in matte chrome finish in the front, larger mesh for improved cooling, and a stronger bonnet. On the sides and rear, there are noticeable design lines which give the GT-R an even aggressive stance. It also gets a new Titanium exhaust system.
On the inside, updated Nissan GT-R gets Nappa leather on instrument panel, revised front seat design, reduced switches (from 27 to just 11), and a larger 8 inch touchscreen. Powering the new GT-R is the old faithful, 3.8 liter V6 bi-turbo which now generates 20 hp more than before, deliver a total of 565 hp and 467 lb.-ft. (4 lb.-ft. more than before).
Price of the new Nissan GT-R is INR 1.99 crore, ex-showroom Delhi.
