By the Numbers: How the Nissan GT-R Has Changed

2011 Nissan GT-R

In year three, Nissan once again re-tuned its suspension and the lineup was simplified to offer the Nissan GT-R Premium model. The powertrain remained untouched for 2011 but the Japanese automaker added slightly darker wheel center caps, double clear coat on the front and rear bumpers as well as rear cooling ducts to improve cooling performance around the rear floor area. Becoming standard on the Premium model was auto on/off headlights and speed-sensitive windshield wipers in addition to USB iPod interface, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth and DVD playback to the Navigation system.

Once again, the 2011 Nissan GT-R Premium saw its price increased to $85,060, an increase of $1,020 over the 2010 Nissan GT-R Premium.
