2009 Nissan GT-R

Nissan announced today the launch of the Nissan GT-R, a new multi-dimensional performance machine that responds to the concept of “an ultimate supercar for anyone, anywhere, any time”. The Nissan GT-R features a newly developed Premium midship-beam, including the world’s first independent transaxle 4WD developed independently by Nissan. The Nissan GT-R will be available in Japan mainly through Nissan increased power and SPD Centers nationwide from December 6th.

Prices of 2009 Nissan GT-R will start from $ 69,850 for the base model and $ 71,900 for the Premium model, which is a standard Bose audio system, heated seats and side air bags.The Nissan GT-R was developed with a adds new understanding and appreciation of the earth and natural forces – gravity, inertial force and aerodynamics – and translates those forces into a completely new design, maximizing tire grip and airflow.Basic vehicle dynamics and integration with the driver were also examined , resulting in different componentry and creating a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) never seen in the market. All these theories have been integrated to balance “speed and efficiency ‘,’ high-output with environmental research” and “high power and speed and security.”

Taking these factors into account, Nissan created the all-different Nissan GT-R, which provides advanced performance for secure and enjoyable driving by minimizing the effects of the climate, condition or driving technique limitations route. The Nissan GT-R offers ultimate power and the SPD for nearly every driving situation – whether it be the Nurburgring circuit, to snow, rain or urban areas – all manageable by the GT-R driver through advanced technology and driving dynamics.

The Nissan GT-R’s unique characteristics are instilled not just in the vehicle design, but also by a specialized production process. Carbon fiber, aluminum and steel components are assembled with a special high-precision process, which includes a series of vibration tests. Engines and transmissions are assembled by a craftsman in a “clean room” environment and after, every GT-R undergoes a battery of comprehensive tests to ensure the smooth operation of all vehicle components.To provide good support for the all-new GT-R Nissan has established special Nissan High speed and power centers, where all certified advisors and technicians have received extensive training. The total support for the GT-R owner is offered for the first three years of ownership, including measurement and adjustment of the engine, transmission and align the wheels after the first 1000 km, and every 12 months, free of charge.The entirely new Nissan GT-R uses a Premium package amidships, an all-different, improved version Front midship (FM) package used on other Nissan vehicles. This package makes use of several world’s first application of an independent transaxle 4WD system. S The transaxle layout places the dual-clutch transmission, and the final transfer of drive to the rear of the vehicle (instead of the usual front location), the weight of vehicles allows for evenly distributed over the entire car. This gives the Nissan GT-R a superb front-to-rear weight balance, while enhancing leg and foot space, allowing an optimal pedal layout.
