The new GT-R features a raft of improvements. The 3.8-liter twin-tutiosrbo V6 now pumps out 545HP (550PS) and 463 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque and sports high-output injectors, a new relief valve for the turbocharger bypass and a new oil pan baffle.
The chassis has gained reinforcements to the dash panel bar and instrument member panel to increase rigidity. The dampers, springs and front anti-roll bars have been revised to offer better stability at high speeds and the driveshafts have been reinforced for improved reliability.
As a result, the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time has dropped by 0.1 seconds, to just 2.7, and according to Nissan, the 2013 GT-R is capable oflapping the Nordschleife in7:18.6compared to the 7:21.0 time of its predecessor.

Cada vez el GT-R tiene cierto “aire” de Mustang… o el Mustang de GT-R.
Vilner, the small Bulgarian aftermarket firm that could, has unleashed pictures of its newest creation based on the almighty Nissan GT-R that was custom built for a Chinese businessman with a large car collection.
The legendary creature, which in Chinese folklore symbolizes power and influence, among other things, is portrayed in a black and red design on the interior headliner and the inner side of the boot.
The same two colors are used on the rest of the cabin that was completely redone in black Alcantara and black carbon leather with red piping and stiching, from the dashboard to the door panels and the front and rear seats.
Furthermore, the redesigned steering wheel and gear shifter are adorned in carbon fiber accents, while certain parts inside such as the door trims and air vent surrounds are painted in chrome red.
On the outside, Vilner dressed the GT-R in a matte white foil wrap, while changes under the hood, which include a titanium exhaust system, are said to help increase the car’s output from “440whp” to “530whp”.
