How do you quantify the ride of your life? In miles per hour? In horsepower? Or in pound-feet of torque, perhaps? With the release of the 2015 Nissan GT-R near Houston TX, drivers are realizing that, for once, simple numbers don’t do it justice. The latest edition of Nissan’s supercar has now arrived at Robbins Nissan, and the performance numbers truly only tell half of the tale. The other half? Well, it’s made up of double-takes, a number of dropped jaws, and in audible gasps.
And what is under the hood to cause these momentary lapses in focus? The standard powertrain for the latest GT-R is a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 delivering a truly bonkers 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque. Its Nissan/Brembo braking system is truly world-class, while Bilstein DampTronic suspension provides a ride that is both composed and absolutely thrilling. Meanwhile, with three driving modes available through the dual clutch 6-speed transmission, drivers can match the GT-R’s performance to suit the needs and situation.
The precision and craftsmanship that go into the 2015 Nissan GT-R is truly second-to-none as well. The GT-R’s engine is fashioned by a master engine-builder from start to finish, with each twin-turbo V6 being assembled from durable, lightweight aluminum and magnesium parts. And, since each engine is signed and authenticated by its builder, the GT-R is truly a product that Nissan is proud to get behind.
The NISMO nameplate certainly carries a great deal of weight within the Nissan family, and this is never more true than in the GT-R NISMO edition. The NISMO-tuned version of the GT-R’s V6 now produces an unreal 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque, while its aerodynamic design and carbon-fiber front and rear fascia give it an air of confidence that can’t be denied.
Meanwhile, its iconic red-on-black style features are best exemplified in the Recaro leather-appointed front seats. These race-inspired seats truly capture the spirit of the GT-R, while tacking on a little effortless style on the side.
The supercar segment accepts no pretenders, and with its iconic blend of world-beating power, breathtaking style, and track-ready speed, the 2015 Nissan GT-R is certainly the real article. And, for those looking for an even greater degree of excellence, the 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO is now available as well.
