2011 Nissan GT-R

Two years into its existence, has Nissan mastered the GT-R? The verdict is still out, but everything is pointing towards yes. Since the GT-R’s 2009 debut in the United States, Nissan has improved the vehicle by deleting and adding, as necessary, to make this vehicle what it is today. From its power to its design and features, the 2011 GT-R is a roaring beast in its class.

The power of the 2011 GT-R is absolutely breath taking. The base level shrouded from American consumers, the Premium is all that remains for purchasing.  What does the Premium have? Everything! Rocking a 3.8L twin-turbocharged engine, kicking 485 ponies out, with 434 pound-feet of torque, this vehicle will make those in the car idling next to it experience an adrenaline rush. Can you blame them? This car hits 60 mph in under four seconds and pushes through a quarter-mile in less than twelve seconds reaching a speed of just under 119 miles per hour. For those who like shifting gears Nissan dropped in a six-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission that makes the most amateur of shifters move through the gears like a pro.

If the performance of this vehicle is not enough, most people will be sold on its design and features. Does Polyphony Digital ring a bell? Polyphony Digital are the developers of “Gran Truism” driving simulation games. Proving to be the best, they joined the best in Nissan to make the 2011 GT-R unforgettable. The interface, designed by Polyphony Digital, sports a navigation screen that is capable of displaying a variety of performance features. Features include steering input, g-force, gear position, lap time, and much more.

It doesn’t stop there. Nissan made it so when you feel antsy to see what your vehicle has, comfort is not compromised. Sporting Alcantara inserts in extremely comfortable front seats, the driver and passenger are anchored during high-g maneuvers. With the seats well positioned in relation to the steering wheel and leg room required, the GT-R is as easy to enter and exit as a regular car, which is extremely rare amongst vehicles in its class.

The GT-R enters the United States with only a limited number of models available to consumers, so if you are interested in owning a Nissan GT-R be sure to act fast or you may miss your opportunity. The price: a mere $87K.
