The 2016 Nissan GTR is speculated to be the last of the current generation of the super car. The Godzilla car is under busy design by the automaker and will be unveiled late in 2015 as the 2017 model year version of the vehicle. The Japanese automaker will be able to view all current trends and make needed adjustments due to the delayed release of its latest GTR.
Among the greatest changes being made to the vehicle involve the steering and suspension by way of the ECU settings and the dampening of the rates for the shocks. With the changes the vehicle will become more stable when faced with sharp corners as well as milder when addressing straight aways. The Japan spec GT-R has more adjustments than the NISMO allowing for increased ride each day that will not sacrifice the high G turn capability of the vehicle.
2016 Nissan GTR Engine Preformanse
The management system of the engine has been minimally retuned, but not for the purpose of gaining power. By tweaking the fuel, the economy of the vehicle is slightly increased as well as the throttle and air response. The performance numbers have not changed from the previous models due to this. There are industry insiders that contend that the new 2016 Nissan GTR will host a 250 horsepower set of electric engines and a 580 horsepower V-6 that is turbocharged. If proven true, this would be a major leap ahead of the 545 horsepower that is currently within the present models.
2016 Nissan GTR Changes
It is presently unclear as to what type of hybrid system the vehicle will receive but chatter indicates that it will most likely be a battery storage option as opposed to a flywheel based configuration. It has been widely speculated that Nissan will be employing the partnership of Williams Formula 1, and they are well versed in the area of hybrid technology. Given that the Nissan is already one of the world’s battery tech leaders, the Godzilla vehicle is destined to be a prolific hybrid vehicle.
According to Nissan’s CEO, Andy Palmer, electric systems within vehicles are able to fill in the gaps in the curve of torque while offering pains in performances that are quite generous. Car enthusiasts and consumers alike will have to wait for the release that will occur in the middles of a spate of super cars in order to determine if Palmer is delivering fluff or fact.
2016 Nissan GTR Release Date and Price
All in all, the changes to the 2016 Nisson GTR are extremely subtle, but do indicate an evolution for the product line. The Track and Nismo editions are said to be offered as usual as the Track was the most recent addition to the Japanese automaker’s line. Nissan has yet to release pricing information for the latest generation of the vehicle and in a rare occurrence, industry analyst have strayed away from attempting to predict the cost of the vehicle. Those that are anticipating its arrival will truly have to wait, abated for the official announcement or a brave soul to attempt a price prediction. The 2016 Nissan GTR, according to industry chatter, will debt onto the automotive market sometime within the second or third quarter of the current year.
