2017 Nissan GT-R to Debut March 23

2017 Nissan GT-R to Debut March 23

A new version of the Nissan GT-R will be revealed next week at the 2016 New York Auto Show. 

Nissan released a simple teaser showing the rear end of what is clearly a GT-R, though it is in darkness. An all-new GT-R is on its way, but it isn’t expected to arrive until 2018, so it’s a safe assumption that this will be the car’s final facelift before the new model arrives.

A slightly revised front fascia sporting Nissan’s “V-motion” grille is expected while new wheels and revised side skirts should complete the new look.  A few small revisions to the rear of the car are expected as well including a new rear diffuser and larger indents around the taillights.

The 2016 Nissan GT-R costs $103,365 and sports 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque, but Nissan engineers have been previously quoted as saying that there is still potential for more power from the engine. The current GT-R NISMO already gets 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque, so it’s possible that the standard car will be boosted up to meet the numbers of the NISMO.
