2014 Nissan GT-R US Spec Details Released

2014 Nissan GT-R US Spec Details Released

The 2014 Nissan GT-R has been refined even more thanks to extensive testing, and now the automaker has released all the details ahead of the car’s unveil at the 2012 LA Auto Show. 

The GT-R uses a twin-turbo V6 that was bumped up in 2013 to make 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque. For the 2014 model, power stays the same, but the car gets new fuel injectors which give better torque response between 4,500 and 6,000 rpm. An oil pan baffle has been added to stabilize oil behavior and oil pressure when the car is being driven hard.

The engine is still hand built, but now it will incorporate a plaque with the name of the worker who assembled it.

For added performance, the suspension has been tweaked for 2014 which helps to lower the center of gravity on the car, and a new anti-roll bar has been added. Stopping power is still provided by Brembo brakes with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers.

A new trim level is now available in the GT-R as well, which is going to take the interior to a more upscale level. The premium interior package offers Red Amber leather appointments with hand-stitching on the front seats, and red leather incorporated into the instrument panel, steering wheel, door trim, armrests and shift knob.

Watch for the 2014 GT-R to bow at the 2012 LA Auto Show.
