2012 Nissan GT-R To Get More Power And SpecR Version

2012 Nissan GT-R

Production of the Nissan GT-R will soon end as the 2012 JDM model will be the last one. However, the Japanese automaker will continue to roll out new iterations of the model. As far as the 2012 R35 GT-R model is concerned, it will pack more power in comparison to the previous model. Expect to see a 30 hp (30 PS / 22 kW) increase, which rounds up the figure to 560 hp (568 PS / 418 kW), in comparison to the previous 530 hp (537 PS / 395 kW) and 488 lb.-ft (661 Nm) of torque.

In addition, Nissan will also launch a SpecR version of the GT-R which aside from this extra power it will feature a gold engine cover and the curb weight will be lowered by 66-88 lbs (30-40 kg).

Due to the tsunami disaster that hit Japan in March, the testing of the model has been delayed, but 7tune.com says that testing on the Nurburgring will occur this fall 2011.
