The Nissan GT-R has received its biggest update since it debuted.

Getting one final refresh before the next-generation model arrives, the 2017 Nissan GT-R bowed at the 2016 New York Auto Show sporting 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque under the hood. The Japanese automaker claims the GT-R has undergone its most significant change since it was introduced in 2007, with a bolder front end sporting the company’s new “V-Motion” grille. There’s also a new hood, front lip spoiler and side skirts, while the beltline between the lower black section and the body panel in the rear has been heightened.

With all the changes to the exterior, the GT-R sports a drag coefficient of 0.26 while rolling on new 20-inch wheels. Inside, Nissan added a touch more luxury with Nappa leather goods. An eight-inch touschcreen monitor now resides where the old seven-inch unit was.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R will arrive dealerships this summer and you can expect pricing to be announced closer to its launch date.
