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.
