Remember the GT-R spied the other weeks testing at Nurburgring? It was a prototype of a 2011 model. But why did Nissan wanted a new model when it has just launched the 2010MY? The answer is simple: they need more power. And if the 2010 model brings an extra 5 hp. well the 2011 one will go up to 500 hp!
Besides that the 2011 Nissan GT-R will add new aero bits and a redesigned front bumper. Under the hood there will be a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine.
