VIDEO:  DSports First Look at 2012 Nissan GTR

By Jeff Naeyaert

Our buddies over at DSport Magazine just released this cool short video reviewing the differences between the 2011 and the minor face lift 2012 GTR.  Nissan has spent a lot of time and have greatly refined the GTR for 2012 adding many highly functional changes.

Aerodynamics have improved with less drag and more downforce.  The aero improvements have improved flow through the intercoolers, radiator and oil cooler as well as around the transaxle for better cooling.  The engine has gotten a bigger exhaust and inlet piping and a retune for much more power.  Electronically wise the VDC system has also gotten retuned.

The suspension has been  improved with revised geometry and different damping.  The brakes are larger and the interior has been revised with higher quality materials.  The changes have resulted in a reduced 0-60 time and a faster time around the Nurburgring.

It looks like Nissan has been hard at work improving one of our favorite cars that is bound to become a classic.  And no, launching the car will not void your warranty!  Hitler will be pleased…
