DEVOTED engineers at Nissan have spruced and tweaked the Nissan MY14 GT-R up a notch in the 2014 model which was recently unveiled at the Boustead Nissan showroom in Beribi.
Not compromising the development of its running power and instead complementing it, the Nissan team has improved the 2014 GT-R of its brake control performance, increased its available stroke of suspension for higher stability and improved its tyre block rigidity. They have also increased the down force, enhance its steering feel, increase the balance of four tyres contact on the ground and bonding rigidity of rear under floor.
For occupants of the supercar, comfort is kept a priority and this is proven by suppressing impure sounds by proper arrangement of damping, absorbing and insulating materials to emphasise clear and powerful sound generated by the engine.
This is made possible by the active noise control in the Bose® sound system which controls sounds of opposite phase by sending out from door speakers and woofers to reduce unpleasant engine booming.
Technologies in body rigidity and severe tyre requirements have been applied in the 2014 GT-R.
What lurks under the 2014 GT-R’s hood is a 3.8-litre Spec-V-twin turbocharged V6 engine which boasts a maximum power of 600 PS @ 6800 RPM generated with the shift of the six-gear transmission and produces a torque of 632 Nm with a maximum speed of 196 MPH.
It launches from 0-100 km/h in 2.7 seconds.
In general, the legend has been tweaked with more power alongside improved ride and passenger comfort.
