2011 Nissan GT-R 0.0 0
$ 56,598-67,518
September 10, 2010
Vehicle Overview

The GT-R is racetrack-bred and runs zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, according to Nissan, rivaling the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Unlike that car, the GT-R has all-wheel drive.

New for 2011
Nissan has eliminated the base GT-R, leaving the GT-R Premium as the only model for 2011. Automatic on/off headlights, speed-sensitive windshield wipers, a USB iPod interface and streaming audio via Bluetooth are new standard features. The navigation system gains XM traffic and weather capability.

Unlikely to be mistaken for any other car, the audacious-looking GT-R is shaped to cheat the wind, route cooling air where it's needed and maintain aerodynamic downforce, front and rear. Aficionados will notice that the wheel center caps are slightly darker this year, and rear cooling ducts have been added.  Exterior features include:

  • Steel, aluminum and carbon fiber construction to save weight and help handling balance
  • "Super wide beam" headlights
  • Standard 20-inch wheels

The GT-R has the driver-oriented cockpit you'd expect of a performance car, with a large tachometer front and center. The seats hug their occupants tightly — a necessity on the track — but the floor space is uncommonly unrestrictive. Technically a four-seater, the GT-R could handle two adults in front and two kids in back. Nissan says the trunk can accommodate two golf bags or suitcases. Interior features include:

  • Eight-way power-adjustable driver seat
  • Four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat
  • Multifunction display records data such as mileage, cornering force and acceleration
  • Steering-column paddles for manual shifting

Under the Hood
The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 produces 485 horsepower and 434 pounds-feet of torque. and the transmission control module has been reprogrammed to provide better drivability and acceleration. Mechanical features include:

  • 485-hp, 3.8-liter V-6
  • Rear-mounted six-speed transmission with auto and manual modes
  • Revised suspension for 2011 for more ride comfort
  • Rear-biased all-wheel drive
  • Summer performance tires standard; all-season tires a no-cost option

Standard safety equipment includes:

  • Front-seat side-impact airbags
  • Side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers
  • Antilock disc brakes
  • Electronic stability system
