Nissan GT-R to receive sporty update

Nissan GT-R to receive sporty update

The annual update for the Nissan GT-R is continuing into 2013, with a model that promises to give motorists a sportier driving experience.

Taking plenty of inspiration from racing the outgoing GT-R, the Japanese car giant has made a raft of positive tweaks to the new vehicle.

For example, the chassis of the 2012 edition of the Nissan GT-R has been improved to ensure better ride comfort and sharper handling.

Furthermore, while the power of the car remains at 542bhp, the Japanese manufacturer has enhanced the vehicle's engine so that it reacts more smoothly and more quickly.

The reworked Nissan GT-R's 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine also comes complete with a new set of high-output fuel injectors to increase the car's squirt precision.

As if all this was not enough, Nissan has also chosen to revise the car's springs, dampers and front anti-roll bar. These reduce the vehicle's centre of gravity and give drivers more control when going through turns.

The 2013 edition of the Nissan GT-R launches in the spring of next year.
