Nissan planning on upgrades for the 2012 Nissan GT-R?
There are rumors circulating around that Godzilla may be getting a new facelift in the form of a re-tuned 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that would be capable of producing over 500 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque. And if these rumors are legitimate, it should stay in line with Nissan’s goal of juicing up the 2012 GT-R to keep pace with its competitors, most notably that bad boy from Stuttgart, the new Porsche 911 Turbo.
In addition to the modded engine, the new GT-R R35 will also most likely come with a full round of modifications and improvements in the car’s aerodynamics, brakes, and suspension, as well as updates on a number of its pre-existing features, including the front splitter, the rear diffuser, and a new wing.
These, of course, are still rumors and Nissan has yet to formally shed any light on it, but in the event that it’s true, we’re itching to find how the latest version of Godzilla will fare when it makes it’s cursory lap around world-famous racing circuits like, say, the Nurburgring,
