2008 Nissan GT-R

Nissan Press Release
6 February 2008

The all-new Nissan GT-R, the legendary Nissan supercar, makes its Australian debut at the 2008 Melbourne Motor Show, following its worldwide debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in October last year.

GT-R is a high performance machine that lives up to the concept of “the ultimate supercar that can be driven by anyone, anytime, anywhere” and achieved a lap time of 7:38 around the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife, one of the fastest times achieved by a production-spec vehicle to date.

Under the hood, the Nissan GT-R features an all-new 3.8-litre twin turbo V6 producing 353 kW and 588 Nm of torque. The hand-built engine is matched to an all-new, paddle-shifted, GR6-type dual clutch rear transaxle.

The new Nissan GT-R is built on an exclusive all-new Premium Midship platform. This new platform enables the use of a world’s first independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system, which places the transmission, transfer case and final drive at the rear of the vehicle, optimising weight distribution and maximising handling capability.

Suspension is a special Bilstein DampTronic system, and the braking system is made up of Brembo full-floating drilled rotors, low steel high stiffness brake pads and Brembo mono block six-piston front and four-piston rear callipers. For excellent grip in all conditions, it wears high-performance run flat tyres on exclusive GT-R 20-inch wheels.

The Nissan GT-R’s functional styling utilises advanced aerodynamics, evoking the lines of a well-trained athlete. GT-R’s hybrid body construction combines steel, carbon fibre and die-cast aluminium, and features a low drag coefficient of 0.27, while achieving high front and rear downforce. Styling cues include front fender “aero-blades” and vents, aggressive front end design with a large hood budge and single central air intake, and “super wide beam” headlights. GT-R’s four-passenger cabin features a sloping “aero blade canopy” roofline and curved C-pillar “sword edge,” as well as GT-R’s hallmark four-ring taillights, functional rear carbon fibre underbody diffuser, rear spoiler and large, integrated quad exhaust tips.

GT-R’s interior balances functionality with a sense of ease and comfort. It features sculpted performance bucket seats for an optimal driving position, a cockpit-style instrument panel with a large center-mounted tachometer and multi-function display – which includes mechanical and driving information, as well as an on-board driving recorder.
