2013 NISSAN GT-R GAINS 15 horsepower TO 545 HP TOTAL
-- Nissan's Multi-Dimensional Supercar Receives Engine and Suspension Refinements for New Model Year; Set to Arrive at Select Certified Nissan Dealers Nationwide in January 2012 --
Since its introduction, the iconic Nissan GT-R has had one goal in mind -- never rest on its laurels. One of the most acclaimed supercars in automotive history, the Nissan GT-R is the ultimate expression of the Nissan brand and its "Innovation for All" philosophy. A multi-dimensional performance machine that lives up to the concept of "the ultimate supercar that can be driven by anyone, anytime, anywhere," the Nissan GT-R receives a number of engine and suspension refinements for the 2013 model year, all designed to enhance its already legendary performance.
"The 2013 Nissan GT-R once again sends a bold statement that it remains on the leading edge of international sports car design, technology and performance," said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. "It's our desire to keep pushing the envelope, to never settle for second best or second place -- a philosophy that makes Nissan GT-R one of the most coveted and affordable supercars in the world today."
The major refinements to GT-R's renowned engineering masterpiece of an engine include improved intake efficiency, reduced airflow resistance including an enlarged air intake duct for the Intercooler, and improved Exhaust emissions efficiency and enhanced control. The engine is hand-assembled in a special clean room, similar to racing powerplant construction. As a result, horsepower is rated at 545 hp, an increase of 15 hp over the 2012 GT-R's 530 hp. Similarly, torque has been increased to 463 lb-ft from 448 lb-ft.
Transmission shift feel and quietness have been refined through a strengthened design of the shift fork arm and a firmer fixing bearing for the flywheel housing. Also, high performance differential oil, used in GT-R motorsports competition, is now standard for production models.
In addition, the suspension has been retuned and a handmade dry carbon rear spoiler has also been added to the Nissan GT-R Black Edition model. Other enhancements include the addition of a new blue lighting treatment inside the tachometer ring to match the shift position indicator light, helping provide a more sophisticated cockpit atmosphere. A RearView Monitor is now standard on all models.
The 2013 Nissan GT-R is scheduled to go on sale at select certified Nissan dealers in January 2012.

New Honda NSX Concept - Tony Stark Drives One
Honda will be presenting a new concept version of the NSX super car at the
2012 Geneva Motor Show.
NOTE: Acura was a Honda brand only used in America. Therefore the NSX was
known throughout the rest of the world as a Honda vehicle, not an Acura.
Calling this a Honda NSX was not an error, it was how the car was
introduced at the Geneva Motor Show, which takes place in GENEVA,

Nissan Releases the 2012 Model Year Nissan GT-R
YOKOHAMA, Japan (November 7, 2011) - Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced
the launch of the 2012 model year Nissan GT-R. The new model goes on sale
November 24 in Japan and arrives in European showrooms in January 2012.
At a glance
- More power (550PS), improved economy and lower emissions
- Unique asymmetric suspension settings on RHD cars
- Enhanced transmission shift feel
- Special race tuned oils used in differential
- Body strengthened for even greater handling finesse
- Ceramic brakes option according to model
- New Bose® Precision Sound System woofers
- Rear view camera now standard
- New version 'For TRACK PACK' enhances GT-R's pure performance (RHD only)
Significant improvements to the engine, chassis and transmission, plus a
new lightweight "For TRACK PACK" version (currently available in some
market such as Japan, UK), which accentuates the pure performance potential
of the GT-R are the key changes to Nissan's flagship model for the 2012
When it was launched, the iconic GT-R created a new type of super car.
Performance and handling were exceptional, of course, but more importantly
the car's potential was accessible to all drivers under all conditions. It
was greeted with universal praise but Nissan's policy of constant
development means the GT-R continues to evolve.
The latest version, which is due on sale in Europe in January 2012, is the
most efficient yet. It offers even greater performance but this is allied
to improved economy and lower emissions to provide further excitement to
drivers and passengers.
As well as more power, the 2012 MY GT-R has a newly developed asymmetric
suspension which compensates for greater weight on the driver's side in RHD
models, enhanced transmission 'feel' and a stronger body for extra rigidity
and ever better handling.
There's also the arrival of a new "For TRACK PACK" version (currently
available in some markets such as Japan, UK) which inherits the DNA of the
Spec_V model and turns the GT-R into a light-weight two seater for the
ultimate in trackday performance.
