The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMOUses Better Aerodynamics, Runs at 600 HP
Nissan's 2017 GT-R was unveiled earlier this year at the New York Auto Show. Dubbed their best GT-R, it was meant to rival the likes of the Audi R8, Chevy Corvette, Porsche 911 and the BMW M6. Now, Nissan has incorporated all the best technology into their GT-R NISMO, including aerodynamic advances that make for an easier and much smoother drive.
The GT-R NISMO is aimed directly at racing enthusiasts, The Verge reported. In order to reduce drag, improve the airflow and maximize the downforce of the unit, Nissan has revamped its body panels. The company boasts that this unit has the most downforce from any other currently in its roster.
The GT-R NISMO also sports more carbon fiber and new wheels. By doing so, turning a corner is made faster as the vertical force is increased and the grip is strengthened. Reportedly, the slalom and corner performance has increased by as much as two percent.
Under its hood, the GT-R NISMO houses a hand-built, 600 horsepower, twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8. This proves that the unit is definitely for the racing-inclined, as it makes the unit more track-focused than the ordinary GT-R. The power is transferred from the motor onto six-speed dual-clutch gearbox onto its wheels.
According to Yahoo!, the updated front end of the Nissan GT-R NISMO is incredibly functional, as it provides cooling through larger air inlets. The carbon fiber bumper and canards also offer optimum stiffness, as well as deflection.
To increase efficiency, the canards have also changed the airflow within the unit, without sacrificing overall downforce. Nissan engineers have also found a way to fine tune the NISMO's suspension through shock absorber configurations, new springs and stabilizers.
When it comes to the interiors, each Nissan GT-R NISMO sport a suede covered dashboard and steering wheel as well as a simplified media center and a larger touch screen.
