2011 (US) Nissan GT-R Updates


Yesterday at the Nurburgring, reporters from Pistonheads had a chance to talk with GT-R project chief Kazutoshi Mizuno about the 2011 Nissan GT-R Updates (MY 2010 Japan) and the Spec V for the European market. The upgrades that are coming for the 2011 car are the Spec-V's rear diffuser , new side NACA ducts, suspension tweaks, and an optional NISMO data-logging facility that will let drivers share and compare data via their PCs.

Pistonheads report that the Nismo data logging will allow owners to download their data though a USB port, and then load it to their PC for analysis and comparison. Nismo had an MFD upgrade for the R34 GT-R that was an option, and this sounds along the same lines.


The 2010 MY cars have an ECU modification to meet Euro 5 emissions regulations and improves low-speed tractability in low temperatures when the transmission fluid is still cold. They also mentioned that the "M-Spec" R35 would not be revealed in Tokyo, but rather some time next year. The M-Spec will be a more customizable version of the R35 with a more "bespoke" feel.

Head over to Pistonheads for more pictures and story.
