The new 2017 GT-R is highlighted by a fresh look inside and out, as well as major driving performance enhancements and key new features. All told, this is the most significant change to Nissan's flagship supercar since it was introduced in the U.S. as a 2009 model.

Key changes for 2017 include:

  • The 2017 GT-R's exterior receives a thorough makeover with a new "V-motion" grille; a new hood, featuring pronounced character lines and reinforced structure to enhance stability during high-speed driving; and new rear bodywork with functional side air vents next to the quad exhaust tips
  • In the cabin is a redesigned, premium interior befitting a high-performance supercar, including: a new instrument panel wrapped in a single, seamless piece of hand-selected Nappa leather; lighter front seats with a new side-support construction method that provides greater comfort and support on long drives
  • The center dashboard layout is improved and simplified; integrated navigation and audio controls reduce the number of switches from 27 in the previous car to just 11 in the 2017 model
  • An 8-inch capacitive touch-panel monitor replaces the 7-inch one and now features large icons on the display screen
  • A new Display Command control on the carbon-fiber center console allows easy operation
  • Shift paddles are now mounted to the new steering wheel, allowing drivers to change gears mid-turn without having to take their hands off the wheel
  • GT-R's award-winning 3.8-liter V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged engine – each unit handcrafted by its own Takumi technician – now delivers 565 horsepower at 6800 rpm and 467 lb-ft of torque, representing an increase of 20 HP and 4 lb-ft, respectively, from last year's model
  • The increases, which are the result of individual ignition-timing control of the cylinders and extra boost from the turbochargers, allow the new GT-R to possess superior acceleration in the mid- to high-ranges (3200 rpm and above)
  • Thoroughly refined 6-speed dual-clutch transmission features smoother shifts and less noise
  • New lightweight titanium exhaust system and Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) enhance the driving experience, especially during acceleration – standard on GT-R Premium grade; new sound absorption materials, including an acoustic glass windshield, help keep the cabin quieter at all speeds
  • A more rigid body structure and retuned suspension allow the GT-R's tires, wrapped around new 20-inch 15-spoke forged aluminum wheels manufactured by RAYS®, to hold the road surface better, giving it increased stability through quick lateral transitions and higher overall cornering speed
  • New available "Blaze Metallic" orange exterior color, applied with a special four-stage process
  • New Rakuda Tan semi-aniline leather interior color (also available in Amber Red and Ivory)
  • Standard NissanConnectSM with Navigation, Mobile Apps and Services that allows smartphone users to remotely lock or unlock the car doors, receive notifications if the alarm is triggered, summon emergency services or track the car if it is stolen
