2017 Nissan GT-R Specifications
The real GT-R
In the world of high-performance sports cars, few names stir the soul like the Nissan GT-R. Known affectionately as “Godzilla” among enthusiasts, the GT-R has carved out a legendary status that transcends its Japanese origins, becoming a global icon of speed, technology, and design. The 2017 iteration of the Nissan GT-R, the R35, is a testament to the relentless pursuit of perfection that has driven Nissan’s engineers and designers for over a decade. This model year not only refined the already potent formula of its predecessors but also introduced enhancements that solidified its place at the pinnacle of automotive engineering.
A Legacy Reimagined
The Nissan GT-R’s lineage can be traced back to the Skyline models of the 1960s, but it wasn’t until the introduction of the R35 in 2007 that the GT-R became a standalone brand synonymous with unparalleled performance. Each subsequent model year brought with it improvements and refinements, with the 2017 GT-R embodying the most significant update since the R35’s debut.
Visually, the 2017 Nissan GT-R retained the aggressive stance and aerodynamic silhouette that have been hallmarks of the model. However, it introduced a redesigned front fascia featuring a larger grille for improved engine cooling, a new hood that enhanced stability at high speeds, and a revised front spoiler that underscored its sporty aesthetics. The changes weren’t merely cosmetic; they were functional, aimed at enhancing performance and efficiency.
The interior received a substantial overhaul, aimed at elevating the GT-R’s luxury quotient without compromising its sporty ethos. A new dashboard design, wrapped in high-quality Nappa leather, and a significantly reduced number of physical buttons created a cleaner, more sophisticated cockpit. The 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system became the centerpiece of the cabin, offering enhanced connectivity and control features.
At the heart of the 2017 Nissan GT-R lies its formidable 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbocharged engine, which saw its power output boosted to an astonishing 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. This powerhouse was handcrafted in Nissan’s Yokohama facility, with each unit bearing the signature of its master technician. Coupled with a refined 6-speed dual-clutch transmission that offered smoother and quicker shifts, the GT-R could catapult from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering 2.7 seconds, continuing on to a top speed of 196 mph.
The GT-R’s renowned ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system received enhancements for improved grip and handling, allowing the car to navigate corners with surgical precision. The adaptive suspension system was fine-tuned for a balance between day-to-day comfort and track-ready stiffness, showcasing the GT-R’s dual nature as both a supercar slayer and a grand tourer.
Breaking New Ground
The 2017 model year also introduced significant technological advancements. The GT-R’s Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system was recalibrated for more refined performance, offering drivers the ability to tailor the car’s behavior to their liking. Additionally, active noise cancellation and sound enhancement technologies were employed to refine the cabin’s acoustic environment, ensuring that the GT-R’s raw power didn’t compromise comfort.
Safety features were not overlooked, with Nissan equipping the GT-R with an advanced suite of safety technologies. These included an enhanced airbag system, vehicle security system, and a tire pressure monitoring system, ensuring that the GT-R’s performance capabilities were matched by robust safety measures.
A Cultural Phenomenon
Beyond its technical specifications and performance metrics, the 2017 Nissan GT-R continued to embody the spirit of Japanese innovation and craftsmanship. It stood as a cultural icon, celebrated in video games, movies, and automotive literature worldwide. The GT-R’s appeal transcended automotive circles, becoming a symbol of technological achievement and the relentless pursuit of speed.
Conclusion: The Continuation of a Legend
The 2017 Nissan GT-R (R35) represented a pivotal moment in the evolution of one of the automotive world’s most celebrated models. It was a perfect blend of tradition and innovation, paying homage to its storied past while pushing the boundaries of what was possible in the present. With its enhanced aesthetics, improved performance, and refined comfort, the 2017 GT-R was not just a car; it was a statement—a bold proclamation of Nissan’s enduring commitment to excellence in the realm of high-performance sports cars. As “Godzilla” continues to evolve, its legacy as a legend among legends is assured, with the 2017 model year marking another unforgettable chapter in its storied history.
