Nissan has unveiled its majorly updated GT-R at the 2016 New York Motor Show. Launched as the 2017 GT-R, this new iteration features a new look and performance upgrades. In all, these upgrades combine to represent the most significant changes the GT-R has received since its arrival in 2007.

Starting with the design, the 2017 GT-R’s revised front-end includes a chrome matte finish V-shaped grille that falls in line with Nissan’s latest design theme. The bonnet has also been significantly reinforced, contributing to stability at high speeds. The GT-R’s familiar wind-cutting shape defines its profile, but the side sills have been pushed out to improve air flow. The rear of the car has also received a makeover. While the GT-R’s hallmark four-ring rear lights remain, look closely and you’ll notice new bodywork to help improve air flow, as well as side air vents next to the quad exit exhaust pipes.

The interior is different and looks significantly more luxurious than before. The entire dashboard and instrument panel is new and covered with better quality leather. The centre dashboard layout has also been improved and simplified. Integrated navigation and audio controls reduce the number of switches from 27 in the previous model to 11 in the 2017 model. The paddle shifts are now mounted to the new steering wheel, allowing drivers to change gears in mid-turn without having to take their hands off the wheel. Nissan says that the paddles themselves have improved feel and better sound when engaged.

The 3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 engine now delivers 570bhp of power and 637Nm of torque. The improved output is the result of revised ignition-timing and extra boost from the turbochargers. That familiar GT-R tone also has been upgraded thanks to a new titanium exhaust system.

Nissan has announced that the 2017 Nissan GT-R will hit the showrooms globally later this year.
