Facelifted 2011 GT-R Details

After winning Motor Trend's coveted Car of the Year award in 2009, Nissan has just released full details for the facelifted 2011 model. Considered to be a mid-life refresh, the GT-R is more potent than ever. It is powered by a hand-built 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 with 523 hp at 6400 rpm. The engine has been revised with changes to the valve timing and larger inlets to increase rated power. It's mated to a six-speed twin-clutch automatic with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

Although it weights 3,858 lbs, it goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds using launch control feature and an AWD system. It has a top speed of 196 mph and has great fuel economy, about 23.5 mpg. Other changes include a more rigid front strut bar, lighter and stiffer wheels, larger front brake rotors, an updated rear diffuser that improves downforce, and a new front bumper with integrated LED's. Interior quality has also been improved. With a base price starting at around $80,000, the GT-R is still a powerhouse bargain considering its closest rivals cost nearly twice and three times as much.
