But the Japanese automaker was hardly finished with its sports car. Gathering data through all its motorsports campaigns with the GT-R, Nissan continued to improve the performance of the GT-R to 545 hp for the 2013 model year, an increase of 15 hp. Torque was improved the same value to 463 lb-ft. Other improvements made to the 2013 Nissan GT-R included a strengthened design of the shift fork arm and a firmer fixing bearing for the flywheel housing. High performance differential oil also became standard for production models, which is the same stuff used in GT-R motorsports competition.

And of course the suspension was further refined while the GT-R Black Edition gained a handmade, dry-carbon rear spoiler. Other minor enhancements for the 2013 GT-R were the addition of a new blue lighting treatment inside the tachometer ring to match the shift position indicator light and a RearView monitor became standard for all models.

That year, the GT-R saw a major bump in its pricing with the Premium model starting from $97,820 and the Black Edition priced from $107,320.

    You’re comparing the base model to the base NISMO. Who writes this garbage?

    It’s not exactly scientific, but it does make a good point. The GT-R is getting EXPENSIVE! Next thing you know it’ll cost $200k.
