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.
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.
