2012 Nissan GT-R Launch Control
The revised 2012 Nissan GT-R's LC4 R-mode start launches from 4000 rpm like
the 2009 LC1 original, but with a smoother clutch engagement to minimize
wheelspin. These runs resulted in a 0-to-60 mph runs of 3.0 and 3.1
seconds, without rollout. That's a significant improvement over all
All New 2012 Nissan GT-R
The 2012 Nissan GT-R has been developed under the theme of the 'World's
best multi-performance and pleasure of responsive driving'. The exterior
features more strength and stability, while the traditional creative flair
associated with the GT-R's striking appearance has also been updated, to
offer improved aerodynamics. A sportier interior complements the enhanced
Engine output is significantly improved to 530PS (390KW)/6,400rpm, with the
maximum torque of 612Nm from 3,200 to 6,000 rpm. The engine cover is,
enigmatically, painted red to illustrate its enhanced performance.
By adopting an ultra-low precious metal catalyst and an engine control
module fitted with high-capacity microprocessors, cleaner emissions have
been achieved. Fuel economy has also been improved by modifying the Boost pressure of the turbocharger, valve timing and air mixture ratio
along with larger diameter inlet pipes and a modified Exhaust system.
SAVE mode is a newly-adopted system, replacing 'snow Mode', which optimises
driving torque and modifies the gearshift schedule to improve fuel economy
when driving on motorways or open roads. The features of Snow Mode are also
Standing start performance can now be maximized through the use of R mode.
To activate, the driver must select R mode, depress the brake whilst in
gear, apply full throttle and release the brake as soon as possible. The
system will monitor oil temperatures to ensure reliability is maintained
and prevent further use if the temperatures rise above the maximum
Exterior and aerodynamics
Even with a more intense and stable chassis, the Nissan GT-R's
world-beating aerodynamic performance has been further improved. Downforce
has been increased by around 10%, while a co-efficient of drag is further
reduced from 0.27 to 0.26.
Stability is improved by an enlarged bumper and grille openings, with
increased three-dimensional effects.
The front bumper has been redesigned, with double rectifier fins which
increases front downforce by around 10%, while reducing air resistance
inside the engine compartment and also increases the air flow through a
radiator which cools the front brakes. Each side incorporates an LED
daytime running light fitted with a large-diameter reflecting surface
emitting a high-intensity white light.
A newly-designed rear bumper with a low center of gravity has been created
and features a sculptured lower part with an extended rear end. By
extending the rear diffuser, underfloor cooling performance is enhanced,
with reduced air resistance.
Cooling performance for the rear Exhaust silencer is improved and rear downforce
is increased by about 10% by introducing a rear bumper air outlet, which
removes air in the rear wheel housing.
The four tailpipe finishers have also been enlarged.
A high-intensity LED rear fog lamp is now incorporated within the extended
Six exterior colors are available, including two new colors - Metallic
Black, replacing solid Kuro Black and Daytona Blue replacing Titanium Grey.

DSPORT 2012 Nissan GT-R Preview
DSPORT Magazine: 2012 Nissan GT-R
If you own a Porsche 911 turbo, Corvette
ZR1, R32/R33/R34 Skyline GT-R or just about any of the six-figure European
exotics, prepare to be pissed off. Japan's reigning mass-production
supercar, just got better. How much better? Let's just say that even owners
of '09, '10 and '11 GT-Rs are likely to be envious of the major
improvements from the minor-change 2012 Nissan GT-R. Kazutoshi Mizuno, the
Chief Vehicle Engineer and Chief Vehicle Specialist for the R35 GT-R, said
it would take about three years to fulfill the promise of making the R35
GT-R a worldclass supercar after the first R35s rolled off the assembly
line in late 2007. With the 2012 Nissan GT-R, Mizuno-san has lived up to
his promise with the 2012 Nissan GT-R.
For the special-invitation long-lead on the 2012 Nissan GT-R, Nissan outdid
itself by selecting the most incredible driving routes ever for a street
evaluation. Starting from the coast and blazing through the canyons of
Central California we experienced a smorgasbord of road types. There was
everything from wide-open mile-long straights to the edge-of-the-cliff,
"ohshit- we're-going-too-fast" off-camber drop outs. Despite the
significant weight of the GT-R, it negotiated any challenge pointed in its
way. The additional power and improved power curve delivered more reactive
throttle response. In the earlier R35 GT-Rs, the lag of the drive-by-wire
controls made the vehicle respond as if the control system had overdosed on
cold medicine. With the 2012 GT-R, the driver-to-vehicle connection is now
completely online. Improved steering response, improved gear-selection in
the AUTO mode and increased brake response were all evident on the road to
the racetrack. If you miss that lag in throttle response, a simple swap to
the new "SAVE" mode delivers a noticeable reduction to improve fuel
efficiency. Finally, the difference in the "COMFORT" mode setting between
the 2011 and 2012 GT-R was noticeable with the 2012 doing a much better job
of smoothing the bumps.
