2009 Nissan GT-R Series II: New details leaked

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

At last, the Nissan GT-R has made its way into the retail channels of the majority of international markets, with a reasonable number of customer vehicles on the streets. While buyers are still getting familiar with their new GT-R, Nissan already seems to be working on a somewhat modified and up-rated model for sale next year, initially called the Series II.

Minor modifications are all it takes, but the total of those mods may create a remarkably different car. It will generate a little bit more power by 5hp to 478hp (356kW), the Brembo brakes will be altered to display Nissan's proud emblem, the front license plate mount will be removed, the fuel tank will increase by 0.75 gallons (2.8L) to accommodate 19.5 gallons (73.8L), and fuel efficiency numbers will be enhanced, up from 19.3mpg (12.2L/100km) to 20.0mpg (11.7L/100km), reports GT-R Blog.

A small change in the white paint color will add the 'White Storm' title and an extra metallic appearance to the exterior of cars that opts for it. This color will also be shared with the Nissan 370Z, scheduled to be unveiled in just two days at the L.A. Auto Show.

The sticker price will go up by almost 10% in the Japanese outlets, up JPY840,000 ($8,729) for the basic version and JPY892,500 ($9,273) for the Premium and Black edition variants.

Other highlights, counting the pricing of the Ultimate Silver paint option will increase somewhat in price, while the wheel color is anticipated to change and the Ivory Pearl White paint option will no longer be available. The Black edition cars will also get a change to Dunlop rubber as typical, with the Bridgestones to be made available on other models as an option.

Although there are changes in the power and fuel economy these are just probably restricted to paper changes only, showing extra testing of the car and what it can be assert to attain.

That should put present owners and 'Series I' buyers at a relief, though the release of an updated and revised model so soon after the first car is not something new. Nissan used a similar pattern with its 350Z, releasing a 2004.5 version with abundant cosmetic and minor mechanical upgrades.
