ELEVATED PERFORMANCE - 2013 GT-R REDEFINES DRIVING EXCITEMENT The fastest Nissan gets even faster for 2013...0-100km/h in 2.7 seconds - 0.1 seconds quicker than 2012 GT-RStiffer chassis with revised suspension set-up and lower centre of gravityFaster around the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit than 2012 GT-RUprated driveshafts and oil management for track driving Improving
on perfection is no easy task, but that's exactly what Nissan has
achieved with the 2013 model year GT-R. The latest evolution of Nissan's
flagship coupe makes its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show,
showcasing a host of enhancements and innovative engineering
improvements. Delivering
improved stability, sharper handling and even quicker responses, the
latest GT-R takes high-performance motoring to a new level. Ride and
comfort levels have also been improved, allowing drivers to enjoy
maximum performance in the real world. As
with all Nissans, the 2013 GT-R has benefited significantly from the
marque's sporting endeavours. Lessons learned during the 2012
Nürburgring 24hr race have been carefully applied to the roadgoing
version, with the end result being improved engine response and
high-speed stability. EngineThe
GT-R's acclaimed twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 features new
high-output injectors that offer more precise control over fuelling.
This has significantly improved mid- and high-range response, further
boosting the GT-R's famed flexibility. A
new relief valve for the turbocharger has also been introduced. This
limits the rapid decrease of forced injection pressure when the throttle
is lifted, improving turbo response and maintaining throttle
responsiveness. Finally,
a new oil pan baffle has been designed to help maintain constant oil
pressure and reduce rotational friction during high-performance driving.
a result of these improvements, the 2013 GT-R can sprint from 0-100km/h
in incredible 2.7 seconds (0.1 seconds quicker than the 2012 mode). Body and chassis The
GT-R's already stiff body structure has been strengthened further with
the additional reinforcements to the dash panel bar and instrument panel
member. These small improvements have resulted in increased body
rigidity further and even better suspension control. The
suspension set-up itself has also been revised for the 2013 model year
GT-R. After measuring the car's roll centre when cornering, engineers
have been able to further improve handling balance. Revisions to the
dampers, springs and front anti-roll bar have resulted in a lower centre
of gravity. Among
other detail changes to the chassis and drivetrain are new front
suspension cam bolts that improve camber accuracy and stability when
cornering, and uprated driveshafts for improved reliability. To
validate the improvements to the 2013 model year GT-R, Nissan engineers
put the car through an extensive testing programme at the Nürburgring.
The famous German circuit was lapped in 7min 19.1 seconds when
undergoing testing in May this year. However, Kazutoshi Mizuno, creator
of the GT-R, has revealed that 0.5 seconds were lost to traffic on that
hot lap, indicating that the 2013 GT-R is capable of a 7min 18.6 seconds
lap. That compares to 7min 21 seconds for the 2012 model year GT-R.
