The Japanese based automaker Nissan is planning to restyle the 2014 GT-R and to fit it with an improved transmission.
The updated 2014 Nissan GT-R is expected to be officially presented on the 2nd of November next year and to go on sale on the local auto market two weeks later. The 2014 Nissan GT-R will get some minor styling updates, which means that this will be a facelift, with new trim in the cabin. The 3.8 liter V6 twin turbo engine under its hood is expected to retain its 545 HP (550 PS / 405 kW) and 632 Nm of torque (466 lb-ft), but the improved transmission might enable the sports car to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds.
In other words, the next generation of the Nissan GT-R, which should hit the market in 2018, will be inspired by Honda’s models and the main reason of why Nissan if looking at Honda is because the competition said that the new hybrid sports car will be faster than the GT-R on the Nurburgring and this can mean only one thing: that the new generation of the Nissan GT-R will also get a hybrid version. The next-gen of the Japanese sports car is also expected to get a lot more updates and carry on the short tradition of supercar killer for an affordable price and, even if the new model will come in 2018, it’s better late than never.
