• Nissan begins taking GT-R orders

The GT-R is a dream come true for many of us. And for those who can afford it and leaving in USA, Nissan has a very good news: it begun taking orders for its latest sportscar. For 2008 the GT-R will be limited to 12.000 units; 1,500 units will make their way to the stateside with a starting price of $69,850.

The Nissan GT-R features an all-new 3.8-litre twin turbo V6 "VR38" engine, featuring plasma-sprayed bores and a special twin-turbo exhaust manifold system. A secondary air management system enables the newly designed powerplant to provide approximately 40kg/m of torque during ordinary low-rev driving, which gives an optimum air-fuel ratio for around-town efficiency and helps the Nissan GT-R meet ultra-low emission vehicle (U-LEV) standards in Japan.

The Nissan GT-R’s new engine produces 473 HP at 6400rpm and maximum torque of 433 lbs-ft from 3200 to 5200rpm. Putting the power to the ground is an all-new GR6-type dual clutch transmission, with paddle shifting and a Borg Warner six-plate dual clutch for direct control.
