Fast Cool Cars          2008 - 2009 Nissan GT-R


2008 Nissan GT-R - the brand new 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 VR38DETT engine is specially developed for the Nissan GT-R. It produces  473 bhp at 6400rpm and maximum torque of 434 lb/ft from 3200 to 5200rpm. This makes the Nissan GT-R one of the most powerful Japanese road cars and the most powerful production car ever built by Nissan.

The body is made with a combination of advanced steels, carbon fiber and aluminum, to provide both stiffness and lightness. It uses a Premium Midship package, an all-new platform which enables the use of the world’s first application of an independent transaxle 4WD system. The transaxle’s layout places the dual-clutch transmission, transfer case and final drive at the rear of the vehicle (instead of the usual front location), offering better front-to-rear weight balance while enhancing leg and foot space and allowing for an optimal pedal layout.

Carbon fiber is used for the front end of the body structure, including the radiator support and the front of the engine bay. The advanced lightweight material gives strength, especially in any front-end impact.

Carbon fiber is also used for the rear aerodynamic diffuser under tray. Special fiberglass is used for the engine under tray, and helps give the Nissan GT-R a virtually flat bottom, further improving aerodynamics. Cd is an excellent 0.27 and that's matched to good down force, crucial on a high-performance car.
