2015 Nissan GT-R at the Dragstrip

2015 Nissan GT-R at the Dragstrip

The Nissan GT-R has gained mythical status since being introduced in 2009. Its 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6 engine making 545-hp backed by a dual clutch 6 speed transmission is a giant killer.

So, what’s new for the 2015 Nissan GT-R? Base price is up to $103,365.00. A 600 horsepower, $151,585.00 Nismo GT-R is now available. Minor cosmetic changes were made including a new headlight package with high-intensity LEDs, with smaller LED accents. The 2015 Nissan GT-R headlights are now adaptive, adjusting for cornering as well as speed – causing more intense light to illuminate further down the road as the GT-R’s speed increases. Also, there is a new option package that includes a carbon-fiber rear wing and trunk lid. A new color has been added to the 2015 Nissan GT-R called “Gold Flake Red Pearl”. The new color is a red based paint with gold flakes. Inside, there are minor trim changes.

Nissan also addressed suspension complaints in the 2015 GT-R. Nissan revised valving in the electronically controlled shocks, updated the GT-R’s spring rates, improved the bushings, and added a new rear anti-roll bar. The result, a more compliant suspension while maintaining world class handling GT-R owners have come to expect.

Recently, the crew at RoadTestTV were able to capture a 2015 Nissan GT-R in the hands of a private owner making a 1/4 mile pass at the dragstrip. As the video shows, the 2015 Nissan GT-R does not disappoint. Enjoy!

    It’s not the NISMO version so it’s no better than the 2014. I want to see a
    600 bhp Nismo version running less than 10.5 1/4 mile @ >130mph.

    11sec for a stock car is amazing. Whoever said they were expecting 9 is
    crazy. What car “stock” does 1/4 mile in 9 seconds and is under 300k and
    has 4 seats?

    GTRs come from factory broken in…watch the documentary each one goes
    through it’s paces and is track ready when you pick it up at dealer brand
    new. So….it’s broken in and not going to get any quicker unless you run a
    few runs and let the cars computer learn the tracks surface for a better
    launch next go around.

    Just love the piece of crap Mustang making loud noises with nothing left in
    the tank to catch the GTR. Why was this car even in this race? Mustang way
    out of it’s league. At least put a ZR1 up against it to be fair. Nice run
    by the GTR though.

    You thinking 9’s no production car can run 9’s. The fastest is 10 flat by
    the Porsche 318. It’s a Hybrid too.
