The Nissan GT-R is one of the most successful cars of the last years. Now, the Japanese automaker has announced that they will release the 2011 Nissan GT-R that gets a facelift this year in Japan. More precisely, the 2011 Nissan GT-R will hit the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) on the 7th of December while the rest of the worldwide markets will have to wait until the spring of the next year. It is clear that Nissan is aware of how successful their car is, as they just launched back in December 2008 (less than one year ago) some engine upgrades and suspension revision for the Nissan GT-R. Practically, they want to make the Nissan GT-R better and better every year.
The 2011 Nissan GT-R will get an improved catalyst system, a revised navigation system and recalibrated suspension settings. In terms of equipment, the facelifted Nissan GT-R will get enhanced a USB port with iPod connectivity and a new HDD based CARWINGS navigation system with enhanced entertainment functions.
In the official statement, Nissan says that ``The suspension of the 2011 Nissan GT-R has been returned to offer enhanced, premium quality ride comfort, while still providing the driver with a feeling of direct contact with the road surface``.
More precisely, the suspension of the 2011 Nissan GT-R features the strengthening of the stiffness of the rear suspension radius rod bushings and the increased accuracy of the front shock absorbers and springs. The handling of the sporty coupe will hopefully get improved thanks to these modifications.
Some features that were previously available only for the Nissan GT-R SpecV version will now be available for the stock version too. I am talking about the rear diffusers with cooling ducts that improve cooling performance around the rear floor area.
The hardcore version of the Nissan GT-R could not have been let without improvements. Thus the 2011 Nissan GT-R SpecV will get revised rear shock absorber settings, as the Japanese automaker claims that ``The revised rear shock absorber settings enhance the characteristic combination of supple ride comfort and flat, predictable handling``. We will just have to believe what they say until we got to see a real test done.
The 3.8 liter twin turbocharged V6 engine will get some tweaks, thanks to the hexagonal meshed catalyst cells that are meant to reduce ventilation / airflow resistance that has as a result improved low and mid range response of the engine. This new feature will be available for both the stock Nissan GT-R and the SpecV version. The Nissan GT-R SpecV will also get Dunlop tires instead of the previously standard Bridgestone tires that will be available as factory installed option.
