As expected due to the numerous spy shots, Nissan updated the GT-R sports car for the 2012 model year, and thanks to our sources, the first photos were revealed.

To be in trend with the other sports cars manufacturers, the 2012 Nissan GT-R comes with new daytime running LEDs fitted in the redesigned front bumper. What is really interesting about this model, is that it now features a lower drag coefficient, 0.268 down from 0.272.

This means that the 2012 GT-R is the best in its class, even better than the Porsche 911 Carrera, which was the leader until now!

Furthermore, the 2012MY introduces two new colors: Aurora Flare Blue Pearl and Nebula Opel Black. Also, the base model will now be named Pure Edition.

The Pure Edition will get a price bump of almost $1,000 while the Premium Edition will be with $2,500 more expensive than the current version.

A new set of wheels will also be available! Dubbed Rays forged aluminum wheels, these ware with 3 kg (6.6lbs) lighter than the current wheels, this means that the car will be with 12 kg (26.4 lbs) lighter than the current model.

The wheels will be available in two colors: Hyper Blue Black and a Hyper Titanium.[via gtrblog]
