The Nissan car company is taking it to the supercar market with their new and improved 2013 GTR. With a marked improvement in performance from the 2012 model, the new version is a serious contender against other new supercars, while being less expensive by a considerable margin. The improved performance comes from its twin-turbo 3.8-liter DOHC V6 engine capable of producing 545 horsepower, which is 15 hp more than the 2012. Torque level is also up from the 2012 model by 15 ft-lbs, with the new total being 463 ft-lbs. Each GTR engine is assembled by hand in specially controlled conditions to maintain quality and consistency.
Sporting an attractive, streamlined chassis and a host of high tech luxury extras, the GTR comes in two basic types: the premium edition and the slightly more expensive black edition. With supercar good looks, luxury and performance, you might expect the fuel economy of the GTR to be terrible, but it actually is not that bad. Driving in the city offers a 16 mile per gallon efficiency with a full tank range of 312 miles. The open highway sees an improvement up to 23 mpg and a travel range of 448 miles on a single fill up of premium unleaded gasoline.
The GTR may be everything you want in a powerful supercar, but it also offers a full range of safety features without detracting from the fun. Stability and traction controls come as standard as does 4-wheel ABS, emergency brake assist, and tire pressure monitors. The high tech electric seats come in leather or suede, and the gear shift and steering wheel are both leather.
