GT-R delivers sophisticated driving pleasure and is the ultimate embodiment of
Nissan's brand philosophy: "innovation that excites."

2015 Nissan GT-R Overview
Outstanding performance meets a new level of sophistication

Mechanical Updates

Chassis
With outstanding adhesion from its tires, the GT-R is capable of stunning
confident acceleration and braking performance

  oThe suspension was fine-tuned to reduced load fluctuation between the four
    wheels, giving better stability and more consistent grip.
  oMore constant tire contact is achieved by optimized electronic control of
    the shock-absorber valves, as well as modified front stabilizer spring
    rates and updated bush link. The tuning of these parts, which makes best
    use of the suspension strokes and enhances road-holding capability, gives
    a poised, confident ride and outstanding traction on rough roads.
  oWith minute vibrations and road noise reduced, a relaxing, comfortable
    ride is assured. An additional benefit is improved straight-line
    stability, with fewer small steering corrections needed to maintain the
    correct trajectory during highway driving.
  oThe upgraded GT-R is now fitted as standard with Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT
    600 DSST CTT tires, for outstanding road-holding and precise response in
    all conditions thanks to stiffer sidewalls which reduce deformation,
    improving steering response under hard cornering. At the front, their
    specification is: 255/40ZRF20(97Y) and at the rear: 285/35ZRF20(100Y)
  oThe braking calibration has been retuned for a more firm, linear response
    at everyday speeds, making smooth braking more intuitive, generating
    greater confidence, particularly in wet conditions.
  oThe GT-R's steering has been fine-tuned to reduce the effort required for
    in-town maneuvers, while maintaining its exceptional feedback during
    high-speed driving. The combination of retuned suspension and exceptional
    steering feel give outstanding confidence at high speed.

Exterior design
Dazzling motion when standing still
The 2015 Nissan GT-R maintains its position as one of the most striking
supercars in the market. Significant updates to the Nissan GT-R's lights both
enhance the visual impact of the car. Customers looking for added visual
impact now have a wider color palette to choose from.

  oThe 2015 Nissan GT-R sports new efficient, high-intensity, multi-LED
    headlights that create a distinctive "lightning" motif, generating a
    striking exterior visual signature. With such a unique visual reference,
    the GT-R's road presence is enhanced, particularly in low light and at
    night – while the fitment of the new headlights gives the driver increased
    visibility.
  oThe new headlights feature AFS (Adaptive Front lighting System*) that
    automatically adapts the angle of the light beam according to the speed of
    the car. At highway speeds, actuators in the headlight unit adjust the
    angle of the projectors to project the light further. The four LED units
    are configured with new intensive LED high beam and three different LED
    low beams including long-distance-illumination and wide-illumination.
  oAt the rear, the GT-R's distinctive four-ring tail light signature now
    forms coherent circles of illumination, giving the GT-R an equally
    distinctive appearance, making it easily recognizable to fellow owners and
    enthusiasts.
  oUpon start up, the full new lighting signature is illuminated, creating a
    dramatic start-up procedure.
  oVisual appeal is reinforced with the addition of a new body color called
    Gold Flake Red Pearl. As its name suggests, there are microscopic
    gold-tinted glass flakes infused into the red paint, creating a
    spectacular effect in the deep, lustrous paint as the light catches the
    finish.

Interior
Upscale cabin appointments

  oChoice of three interior color schemes includes a new pale ivory trim
    option.
  oThe steering wheel is trimmed in leather, for premium tactility, while the
    part-aniline leather seats are further embellished with stitched accents,
    giving the ambience of a genuine GT designed for cross-continental,
    first-class travel.

Body construction
Advanced body construction

  oTo achieve the project's ambitious targets for high-speed handling and
    ride comfort, Nissan enhanced the level of precision-constructed body
    elements and advanced assembly methods to create the 2015 Nissan GT-R.
  oEach part is made of materials selected for optimum performance:
    Precision-constructed, multi-material hybrid body combines steel, carbon
    fiber and die-cast aluminum to achieve high stiffness and light weight.
  oThanks to the rigidity of the GT-R's body construction, suspension
    precision is guaranteed while refinement is enhanced, resulting in
    exceptional cabin refinement even at high speeds and under hard cornering.
  oThanks to optimized insulation and acoustic tuning, even at high speeds,
    the occupants are able to enjoy the sporty engine sound.
  oAn optional carbon rear wing is offered, which is attached to a carbon
    trunk lid, giving a weight saving of half compared with the standard trunk
    lid.

*Adaptive Front lighting System is unavailable in some regions.
