Ride quality has never been a GT-R strong point, but Nissan claims it has worked on that as well, and that the 2015 model offers a smoother, more refined ride.

Chassis revisions also aim to smooth the ride while preserving current handling levels.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


As my hot-shoe ace shoots out of the pits, I can feel the subtle broadening and reshaping of the power and torque curves applied to this car (the peak values remain the same).
by MotorTrend
Turn one comes up super quick, but I haven’t built up a normal head of steam yet, so the braking is fairly light and I go down hard on the loud pedal as I unwind the wheel.
by MotorTrend
He seems to struggle less putting the power down exiting the turns, probably as a result of the slightly re-tweaked torque-distribution mapping.
by MotorTrend


Nissan says the GT-R's suspension has been tuned for better stability and grip, and that braking calibrations have also been retuned for a more firm, linear feel.
by (Feb, 2014)
Even the tires are redesigned with a new compound and a new tread design with the two outermost longitudinal tread channels getting a little reinforcing step to make them more rigid in lateral grip.
by MotorTrend
The grip afforded by these new tires also catches my attention—they use the same compound, but for Nismo they’re shaved—or is this perception coming from the increased rigidity of the wheel-hub-to-upright connection afforded by the 2mm larger-diameter lug bolts?

Rocketing out toward the next corner, a fast right that that falls away right and down out of sight, I notice that the engine note seems a bit less angry-shop-vac-like; the note sounding as if it has shifted up two keys in the bass-to-baritone direction.
by MotorTrend
Now we’re boiling up the front straight, pulling the paddles at redline, and the car is pulling stronger to the 7000-rpm point, as the power now peaks later (6800 rpm vs. 6400) and the bigger turbos are producing in the neighborhood of 10 percent more boost.
by MotorTrend
Note that a professional racing driver translated a 10 percent power increase (plus myriad improvements to aerodynamics, powertrain, all-wheel-drive torque-distribution, chassis, tires, etc.) into a two-percent reduction in Godzilla’s lap time around the Green Hell.
by MotorTrend


The interior is also dressed up with additional stitching, carbon-fiber look backgrounds for the gauges, a higher-definition multi-function center display, and new color-accent interiors with color extending to the passenger dash and larger areas on the doors, with Ivory joining the Amber red.
by MotorTrend
Nissan has revealed the 2015 version of its sports car and it gets a revised rear end, redesigned head and taillights, and new interior trim.

The initial bite of the brakes and the linearity of the pedal feels just that little bit more assured, thanks to the added rigidity of the caliper brackets.

In The News From around the web


Believe me, I think this is the car that will go down in the annals of time and be one of those cars which will be long remembered, not only for the fact that it will have won Le Mans but also that it reset the real meaning of NISMO as a link between success on the track and success on the road.
We know that LM P1 competition is very tough, with serious manufacturer competition, but we are absolutely determined to make our cars competitive and to operate strongly against those competitors.
