U.S. spec 2014 Nissan GT-R gets more power image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently released the first details with the 2014 GT-R, aimed towards the United States market.

According to the car manufacturer, the 2014 Nissan GT-R will get more power on the U.S. auto market, from the same 3.8 liter twin turbocharged V6 engine, which will produce a total output of 545 HP, compared to the current 530 HP. The extra output is available thanks to the new intake and to the optimized exhaust system, which is allowing the engine to breathe easier.

“The performance enhancements for 2014 signal Nissan’s intent to keep the GT-R on the leading edge of international sports car design, technology and performance year after year after year”, said the vice president and general manager of Nissan Division, Al Castignetti.

The 2014 Nissan GT-R will also keep its six-speed dual clutch transmission but the suspension system has been updated in order to improve handling at high speeds. The revised spring and damper rates can be found on all four corners and up front, a new anti-roll bar is available. The braking system remains unchanged. Additional details on the 2014 Nissan GT-R are limited for the moment and will be announced close to its launch.
