Το βασικότερο σημείο της ανακοίνωσης της Ιαπωνικής εταιρίας, είναι ότι οι τιμές των τριών GT-R μοντέλων, παρέμειναν στα ίδια επίπεδα με πέρυσι, παρά τις κάποιες μικρές διαφορές που μεταξύ άλλων, περιλαμβάνουν μία αύξηση της τάξης των 5 αλόγων στην ιπποδύναμη για GT-R Premium και GT-R Black Edition και τις νέες ζάντες ελαφρού κράματος 20 ιντσών για το Premium. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι το GT-R Premium, κοστίζει $101.770, το GT-R Black Edition κοστίζει $111.510 ενώ το GT-R Nismo που παρέμεινε πανομοιότυπο με το MY2015, κοστίζει $149.990.

Εξίσου σημαντική όμως, είναι και η ανακοίνωση λανσαρίσματος της 45th Anniversary Gold Edition που δημιουργήθηκε για γιορτάσει η ιστορία την μακρόχρονη ιστορία αυτού του μοντέλου. Η ειδική αυτή έκδοση, ξεχωρίζει πρώτα απ’ όλα χάρη στο “Silica Brass” χρώμα που είναι το ίδιο με αυτό που χρησιμοποιήθηκε για το 2001 Skyline GT-R M-Spec. Κατά τα άλλα, η Nissan τοποθέτησε στο engine bay μία χρυσού χρώματος πλακέτα με τον σειριακό αριθμό του chassis και μία αναμνηστική πλακέτα ίδιου χρώματος στην κεντρική κονσόλα. Πέραν αυτών, η Ιαπωνική εταιρία δεν έδωσε επιπλέον πληροφορίες για την 45th Anniversary Gold Edition.

“Χρυσή” επετειακή έκδοση για το Nissan GT-R !

Με μια, περιορισμένης παραγωγής, επετειακή έκδοση, η Nissan τιμά την ιστορία του θρυλικού supercar GT-R.

Η “45th Annicersary Gold Edition” του Nissan GT-R βασίζεται στην έκδοση του GT-R Premium και χαρακτηρίζεται από ένα μοναδικής απόχρωσης χρυσαφί χρώμα, καθώς και από αναλόγου χρώματος πινακίδες στο πλαίσιο (εντός του χώρου του κινητήρα), όσο και εντός της κεντρικής κονσόλας. Για την ιστορία, το ίδιο χρώμα βαφής, με την κωδική ονομασία “Silica Brass”, είχε χρησιμοποιηθεί και στην κορυφαία έκδοση του 2001 Skyline GT-R M-Spec (R34). Η παραγωγή του Nissan GT-R “45th Annicersary Gold Edition” θα είναι πολύ περιορισμένη. Για του λόγου το αληθές, λιγότερα από 30 αυτοκίνητα αυτής της έκδοσης, αναμένεται να διατεθούν στην αγορά των ΗΠΑ.

Εκτός της παραπάνω έκδοσης, τα GT-R Premium και GT-R Black Edition θα διαθέτουν επιπλέον 50 ίππους, φθάνοντας συνολικά τους 550, ως αποτέλεσμα των πρόσθετων τελειοποιήσεων στις ηλεκτρονικές ρυθμίσεις του twin turbo V6 κινητήρα 3.8 λίτρων (VR38DETT). Ακόμη, τα GT-R Premium θα εφοδιάζονται με νέες σφυρήλατες ζάντες κράματος αλουμινίου RAYS® 20 ιντσών, , σε premium σκούρο χρώμα, ενώ η πλήρωση των ελαστικών υψηλών επιδόσεων, διαστάσεων 255/40ZRF20 εμπρός και 285/35ZRF20 πίσω, θα γίνεται με άζωτο !

NISSAN ANNOUNCES PRICING FOR 2016 GT-R 16/03/15 from Nissan

Pricing remains unchanged for 2016; GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition receive five additional horsepower; GT-R Premium adds new 20-spoke wheels

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan today announced pricing for the 2016 Nissan GT-R supercar, which is on sale now at select Nissan dealers in the United States. Prices* for the three 2016 GT-R models remains unchanged from last year, despite several significant enhancements, including:

Additional five horsepower for the GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition

All-new 20-spoke wheels for the GT-R Premium

New 45th Anniversary Gold Edition, featuring a special exterior paint color

The 45th Anniversary Gold Edition, built off of the GT-R Premium model, commemorates the GT-R’s long heritage of world-class high performance. Featuring a special gold paint color, the limited edition model also includes a special gold-tone VIN plate located inside the engine compartment and a special commemorative plaque on the interior center console. The paint color itself is the same “Silica Brass” color that marked the 2001 Skyline GT-R M-Spec (R34 Type). Fewer than 30 of these special GT-Rs are slated for the United States market.

The GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition are now rated at 550 horsepower**, the result of additional fine-tuning of the advanced VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6’s engine electronics. The power rating for the exclusive GT-R NISMO remains unchanged at 600 horsepower. Along with the 50 additional horsepower and 18 additional lb-ft of torque, the GT-R NISMO features enhanced aerodynamic features, body reinforcement and ultra-precise handling (versus the Premium and Black Edition models).

The GT-R Premium’s new 20-spoke RAYS® aluminum-alloy forged wheels with premium dark (near black) finish replace the previous 10-spoke design. The wheels are mounted with sticky nitrogen-filled Dunlop® Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT ultra high performance run-flat tires, sized 255/40ZRF20 front and 285/35ZRF20 rear.

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) for the 2016 Nissan GT-R:

GT-R Premium $101,770 USD GT-R Black Edition $111,510 USD GT-R NISMO $149,990 USD Destination and handling $1,595

About the 2016 Nissan GT-R NISMO

Now in its second year of availability, the Nissan GT-R NISMO delivers “factory tuned” supercar dynamics with advanced aerodynamics and ultra-precise handling. It takes the “standard” GT-R to an even higher level of street-legal driving excitement.

As in its debut year, for 2016 the GT-R NISMO model is available in very limited numbers in North America. It features exclusive styling that embraces the longstanding racing philosophy of form following function. It has numerous motorsports-inspired technologies to enhance the car’s performance through optimized aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain, creating a well-balanced machine that is at home on both the road and track***.

The 2016 GT-R NISMO’s 600-horsepower VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 is rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque**. The engine’s high-flow, high-capacity turbochargers are similar to those used for GT3 racing and offer improved breathing. Optimized individual ignition timing control for each cylinder and upgraded fuel pump (versus standard models) help improve combustion.

The VR38DETT V6 is backed by an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission, which can be driver selected to shift at race car-like speeds. The sequential-shifting transaxle features separate wet clutches for the odd (1,3,5) and even (2,4,6) gears and pre-selects the next highest and next lowest gear for quick shifts. High performance differential oil, used in GT-R motorsports competition, is standard.

The 4-wheel independent suspension receives unique NISMO tuning, with reduced weight and additional roll stiffness. Additional adhesive bonding (in addition to spot welding) helps increase body shell rigidity.

The GT-R NISMO also features a special aerodynamic body treatment designed to enhance rod holding and minimize the negative impact of drag while adding to the GT-R’s muscular appearance. The unique front bumper, engine undercover and carbon rear spoiler increase downforce, lowering the center of gravity and generating an additional 220 pounds of downforce (at 185 mph) compared to the standard GT-R models. The car’s aerodynamic characteristics are tuned to ensure the downforce is equally spread front to rear at all speeds for progressive handling characteristics. A widened front bumper configuration and elongated yet tapered rear bumper design keep the drag to Cd 0.26, same with that of standard Nissan GT-R. Four exterior colors are available for the GT-R NISMO: Solid Red, Jet Black, Super Silver and Pearl White.

Inside, the Nissan GT-R NISMO’s racing-style RECARO® seats offer comfortable yet firm support for the driver and front passenger. NISMO racers influenced the design of the steering wheel, which is dressed in Italian-made Alcantara® with three spokes, red leather center mark and red stitching to give the best combination of grip, feedback and comfort. The combi meter has carbon-like finish, and tachometer features a red design. The meter hood is also dressed with Alcantara®. Interior trim features include discreet red stitching on the seats, center console, door trim and steering wheel.

About the 2016 Nissan GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition

For 2016, the Nissan GT-R defends its position as one of the most striking supercars in the market today – with the addition of five horsepower (non-NISMO only), new 20-spoke wheels for the GT-R Premium and a limited-availability 45th Anniversary Gold Edition with special exterior paint color.

All 2016 Nissan GT-Rs are again built on an exclusive Premium Midship platform, which enables the use of the unique independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system. This system places the transmission, transfer case and final drive at the rear of the vehicle, optimizing weight distribution and maximizing handling capability. Total vehicle adjustability is provided by set-up switches located in the center of the instrument panel, enabling the driver to adjust transmission, shock absorbers and the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC-R) among three settings – Normal, Special or R.

As in previous years, the 2016 GT-R Premium and Black Edition’s 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 engine is hand-assembled from beginning to end in a special clean room by specially trained technicians, a process similar to racing powerplant construction. An aluminum plate is added to the front of each engine showing the name of the “Takumi” engine craftsman. The advanced VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 is now rated at 550 horsepower. Torque remains at 463 lb-ft. Fuel economy is rated at 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.

GT-R’s interior balances functionality with a sense of ease and comfort. It features sculpted performance bucket seats for an optimal driving position and 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. A specially designed 11-speaker Bose® sound system with speakers mounted in rigid aluminum die cast panels, which provides sound quality suitable for a supercar, is standard. The system includes a Bose® Active Noise Cancellation system (not applied to GT-R NISMO) tuned to reduce engine booming sounds. Also standard on all models is a RearView Monitor.

The 2016 GT-R again includes a choice of three interior color schemes, including a hand-stitched Premium Interior Package, offered in both Ivory and Red Amber, with semi-aniline leather appointments with hand-stitching on the front seats, along with accents on the instrument panel, steering wheel, door trim, armrests and shift knob.

The GT-R Black Edition adds special lightweight black aluminum forged RAYS® wheels, unique red and black interior, Recaro® leather-appointed seats and a unique dry carbon fiber**** rear spoiler.
