2010 Paris Auto Show: 2012 Nissan GT-R [Live Photos]
As far as the design is concerned, the supercar comes with minor modifications, such as LED daytime running lights installed in the lower part of the front bumper. Actually, the entire front fascia has been restyled, receiving new air intakes.
At the back of the vehicle, we can find a new diffuser, which has been borrowed from the SpecM version of the car. But the GT-R also shows its sensible side, as its rear bumper now incorporates a fog light that uses LED technology. OK, we’ll admit it: Godzilla doesn’t really care about stuff like that - the light was installed due to the fact that the EU regulations require it.
The vehicle displayed at the event rides on new lightweight alloy rims.
What is interesting is that Nissan hasn’t introduced the car with a big ceremony. And the reason behind this might be the fact that its final technical specs haven’t been decided yet. So, unfortunately, we can’t give you the juicy part of the news (yet).
Earlier media reports indicate that the GT-R will get a pretty important tech upgrade, To be more precise, the supercar is expected to be offered with a power rating of 540 hp. In addition to that, Nissan should also upgrade the vehicle's suspension and braking systems in order to improve the all-round performance.
