Unlike its predecessor, the 2017 Nissan GT-R now pumps 565-horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.8L V6 engine, an increase of 20-horsepower, mated to a dual-clutch 6-speed gearbox. You also get a new Titanium exhaust system with “Active Sound Enhancement” to give it more of a bark outside, while “Active Noise Cancellation” keeps things quiet in the cabin. Speaking of the interior, the paddle shifters are now steering wheel-mounted, enabling drivers to make mid-turn gear changes without having to move their hand position.

“This new GT-R is the most advanced, most refined and most progressive sports car that Nissan has ever built. And that is saying a lot. As the standard bearer for great Japanese engineering and design, the GT-R has always remained true to its character. It symbolizes Nissan’s ability to set the agenda. From the onset, GT-R has pushed the envelope by combining the class and refinement of Grand Touring vehicles with the power and precision of a racing car. This new 2017 GT-R refines the legend in a most powerful way,” said Nissan executive VP of marketing & sales Daniele Schillaci.
