Technical highlights - 2009 Nissan GT-R

Technological highlights include:

* An independent transaxle and advanced four-wheel drive system that continuously adjusts torque front-to-rear (and vice versa) depending on dynamic needs
* New six-speed paddle shift dual-clutch gearbox featuring the exceedingly quick gearshift plus full automatic function for ease-of-driving
* New high-efficient 3.8-litre twin turbo V6 engine, mating great horsepower (480 PS / 353 kW), a wide torque spread (maximum torque 60gm / 588 Nm), good fuel economy and low emissions (ULEV in Japanese regulation). New technology includes plasma coating bores to improve cooling efficiency and boost both power and economy
* Aerodynamic body of just 0.27 Cd - so it's one of the world's slickest cars. This is specially unusual on a supercar that offers high downforce front and rear
* New body using lightweight steel, carbonfiber and diecast aluminum construction
* Brembo drilled ventilated disc brakes and Brembo opposed monoblock calipers that offer immense stopping power
* Dampers, gear shift and VDC-R are all manually adjustable, by simple switches on the dashboard, offering maximum comfort with ease of driving, or maximum performance
* Multi-functional instrument display, designed by the people who did the graphics of the Sony PlayStation Gran Turismo game
* A g-force meter in the instrument display, showing both lateral (acceleration and braking) and transverse (cornering) forces.
