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,

Be a fan on Facebook! www.facebook.com/dlmphotos
On my 2nd most recent video, the one of the supercar rally, this black
Lexus LFA made a short appearance. Many people in the comments section
wanted to see more of it, so I'm honoring your guys' requests and I present
to you guys a full video of this $385,000 Lexus.
Although not my favorite color, black is quite classy on the LFA. In the
video, you can see it arriving at the event, driving around a bit, giving
some nice revs, and then leaving along with other cars, giving off its
incredible, F1 sounding Exhaust note.

MOTRface.com 2012 Lexus LFA Red - video 3 of 3
Only 500 LFA supercars will be built, all will be hand-assembled by skilled
technicians in the "Lexus LFA Works" at the Motomachi Plant in Toyota City
at a rate of no more than 20 per month. The rear-wheel drive LFA is
dynamically styled and powered by a sophisticated new high-revving 9,000
rpm (redline) 4.8-liter V10 engine that generates 552 hp and 354 lb.-ft. of
torque for adrenaline-fuelled 202- mph performance. This
specially-developed powerplant is paired with a unique six-speed Automated
Sequential Gearbox (ASG) with blazing-quick paddle-activated shifts for
ultimate driver control. Linked by a rigid torque tube for excellent
drivetrain integrity, the ASG is located in a transaxle layout over the
rear axle for an optimal 48:52 front-to-rear weight distribution.
Motorsport-developed lightweight aluminum alloy suspension components are
complemented by Carbon Ceramic Material (CCM) brake discs and an innovative
electrically assisted rack and pinion steering system. Lightweight,
powerful and balanced, the LFA features advanced Carbon Fiber Reinforced
Polymer (CFRP) construction for its chassis and much of its bodywork to
deliver a light, incredibly strong and impact-resistant structure. Rather
than outsource this sophisticated materials technology, the LFA team took
the radical step of developing its own CFRP processes internally for
ultimate quality control and to make a sound engineering investment in the

Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch
Testing the 2013 model Nissan GT-R at Sugo Sportsland raceway in northern
Japan. 0-60 in 2.7 secs,
quarter-mile in 10.8.
