2016 Nissan GT-R Review - Best Sports Cars

Nissan got in the choose group of high-performance makers back in 1969, when the first-generation Skyline GT-R was presented. At first available only as a four-door sedan, the Skyline GT-R quickly went far for itself on the track and the street, evolving into a coupe that went on to control the regional motorsport scene. The R32 was the very first to make an impact in other markets, with the R33 and R34 models improving the GT-R's aura abroad. The cars we all understand today was launched in 2007, 5 years after Nissan chose to separate the GT-R line from the Skyline name. Currently eight years of ages, the present GT-R is silently awaiting for its hybrid successor to show up, while getting moderate updates to keep it fresh for a couple of more years. For 2016, Nissan has actually presented yet another update, which is currently available for the Japanese market as a 2015 design year before taking a trip across the Pacific and into U.S. dealerships.

The modified GT-R is generally an undercover 2015 model, without any major upgrades inside and out. The familiar, 3.8-liter, V-6 engine rollovers unchanged too, however the absence of drivetrain updates is reversed by various improvements in the suspension and brake department. All told, the 2016 GT-R is a more accurate and stable sports car all set to deal with race tracks the world over for a few more years.

The Nissan GT-R is going for the gold once again in 2016 after 2012's unique Usain Bolt one-off. This time the rare-earth element paint task is going on just a couple of more cars to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the initial Skyline GT-R.

The 45th Anniversary Gold Edition of the GT-R paints the Premium trim of the twin-turbocharged sports coupe a rather controlled golden shade called Silica Brass. The VIN plates are in a comparable shade, and there's a commemorative plaque on the center console.

Nissan spokesperson Dan Passe tells Autoblog that based upon estimates, the company plans to offer 30 or less anniversary editions in the United States. The special designs bring an additional $1,000 on top of the Premium's starting $101,770, plus a destination charge of $1,595 on all cars. Passe suggests interested customers put an order through dealers quickly since of the restricted numbers.

The anniversary edition isn't the only thing new to the lineup. The Premium and Black Edition designs both get an additional 5 horsepower to press output to 550 hp, but the the Nismo continues to be the same with 600 hp and 481 lb-ft. The Premium trim likewise now uses 20-spoke created aluminum wheels from Rays to change the earlier 10-spoke design.

Something not changing for the GT-R is the pricing, after going north of $100,000 for the 2015 model year. The Black Edition still retails for $111,510 and $149,990 for the Nismo.
