All-New Performance Features: This track-ready version of the GT-R features more standard performance upgrades than any other GT-R model.

  • NISMO Twin-Turbocharged V6 Engine - With an impressive 600 horsepower, the 3.8-liter engine under the hood of the GT-R Nismo is as refined as it is powerful. Each cylinder features a unique plasma coating, and an independent intake system for each bank of cylinders. The majority of the engine sits back on the chassis, giving it a Premium Midship design for better balance.
  • Dual Clutch Six-Speed Transmission - Complete with three driver-selectable modes,  this dual-clutch transmission can shift as quickly as 0.15 seconds. A unique rear chassis mounting of the GT-R clutches, transmission, and transfer case, make it the world’s first independent rear transaxle for an all-wheel-drive vehicle.

  • NISMO-tuned Suspension - Paired with Bilstein DampTronic components, drivers can choose between three driving modes for the ideal ride/handling balance.
  • Advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control - To help with track performance, the GT-R Nismo uses the advanced VDC system in R-Mode to deliver more power to the appropriate wheels when oversteer or understeer is detected. This system helps drivers stay on their intended course, without slowing down.
  • Front Spoiler with Carbon Fiber Air Ducts - This system also comes with front/rear brake cooling guides, to help dissipate heat generated from braking in track environments.

Overall Increased Performance Across Trim Levels

2016 Nissan GT-R 

While the 2016 GT-R Nismo model offers the most extensive on-track performance, other trim levels of the 2016 GT-R offer new performance standards. Nissan made mild changes to the GT-R chassis, which increases overall handling, precision, and performance.

 

On top of changes under the hood, the automaker went to extensive lengths to ensure a quieter interior cabin ride, with an all-new noise cancelling system. Check out the new features below:

 

  • A new recalibrated suspension reduces load fluctuation between the four wheels, keeping wheels tight on the road for a smoother ride.
  • Advanced headlights illuminate the road ahead with sophisticated technology that changes its pattern based on your driving speed.
  • 3.8-liter Twin Turbocharged V6 engine offers incredible strength, with a lower emissions rating.
  • The premium Bose Audio System with Active Noise Control uses a microphone in the ceiling of the GT-R to identify unwanted low frequency engine sounds, and naturalizes them with sound waves to decrease the cabin noise. 

Everything about the 2016 Nissan GT-R is geared toward the overall power of the vehicle, and ultimate driving experience.
