Buzz is Building for the 2014 Nissan GT-R

Is it possible to
experience the thrill of owning a true supercar without going well into the six
figure range? The new Nissan GT-R makes a good case for the affirmative.
Although far from a budget vehicle, this sporty luxury vehicle is beloved by
regular motorists and celebs alike. The likes of Robert Downey Jr, Chuck
Norris, and Steve Coogan have all been spotted behind the wheel. The world’s
fastest man Usain Bolt even covers his in gold. Yet the newest model for 2014
is even more impressive, built for greater speed than ever before. This
includes a completely reworked twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 engine for added
spark.

Slick Exterior and Build
None

The GT-R has always
been a head-turner, with its wide front and flared tail. Sleek, elegant, and
low to the ground, this Nissan model looks as powerful as it is. The 2014 model
has only received a few minor tweaks to its appearance, with 20 inch tyres and
a more refined front end. Although the GT-R looks vastly different from other
models from the same brand, its interior trim isn’t so different from what
you’d see when looking at the latest
Nissan Pulsar on Carsales. The seats, however, are plush, luxurious, and covered in
leather. The newest GT-R also boasts carbon fibre trim along with an array of
electronic technology.

Digital Design
None

The digital dashboard
display is new and improved, with more elegant and precision-based features
than before. Motorists can keep track of their transmission temperature,
lateral g-force, brake force, speed, and throttle position among other figures.
All of this is built into the multi-functional display, for a full rundown of
your driving statistics. There are also three switches within the display which
can be used to manage the traction control, suspension, and transmission. This
gives the driver a decent level of power over the driving experience, whether
you’re looking for a smooth ride or one with more raw speed. The system also
allows you to monitor and control the fuel economy, to save an extra mile per
gallon on the motorway with a more efficient mode.

Increased Engine Power
None

The feature creating
the most buzz on the newest Nissan GT-R is its revamped twin-turbocharged
3.8-litre V6 engine. This is capable of offering 463 pound-feet of torque,
along with a very impressive 545 horsepower and all-wheel drive. The car can
take you from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 3 seconds, and can reach top speeds
of 196 mph. Even at high speeds, it never feels unstable and is able to handle
curves and unsteady terrain with ease. This is what ultimately makes the Nissan
GT-R stand out from other cars of its class, and put it more in the realm of the
supercars from brands like Lamborghini and Porsche. Although it’s not a budget
car, as you can see when looking at
Nissan
GTR listings on Carsales.com.au
,
it’s still a lot of car for the money.

Previous models of
the Nissan GT-R have been in high demand among the Hollywood elite and regular
drivers alike for some time, but the 2014 model has been building even stronger
buzz. You can expect to see even more speed junkies behind the wheel to try out
its new and improved engine and even more sophisticated gadgetry in the year to
come.
