The Nissan 2014 model year GT-R will surely catch the attention of anyone who passes by Nissan’s stand at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. It has received updates for the new model year with its tweaked engine, chassis, and suspension. The GT-R still delivers 545 hp at its peak but its mid-ranged and high-rpm responsiveness have been given a boost with new, high-output fuel injectors.
It also gets a new release valve for the turbo bypass that was attached to the powerplant together with a new oil pan baffle to help limit rotational friction and give a more stable oil pressure to the GT-R. With regards to the handling, Nissan was able to discover ways to enhance the GT-R with improved chassis rigidity due to new reinforcements to the dash panel bar and instrument panel bar.
It also tweaked its suspension with new spring and shock settings. It also received a new front sway bar and camber bolts. As a result, we have a GT-R that doesn’t just feature handling that’s more responsive, it also offers a ride that’s more comfortable.
To make the model more reliable even with the passing of time, Nissan increased the strength where the driveshafts meet the hub bearings.
Nissan undertook these modifications after subjecting the model to numerous tests on the track, such as the 24 Hour of Nurburgring race this year. Nissan has confirmed that its dealerships in North America will begin to offer the 2014 Nissan GT-R later next year.
