2015 Nissan GT-R is More User-Friendly, Gets Subtle Styling Upgrades

Besides the new GT-R Nismo, Nissan will also unveil the updated 2014 GT-R (2015MY GT-R in the U.S.) at the Tokyo Motor Show. The refreshed model brings a series of upgrades that give it a more comfortable ride, more refinement and a more upscale interior.

The GT-R’s suspension has been fine-tuned to reduce load fluctuation between the four wheels, providing better stability and more consistent grip. Nissan has also optimized the electronic control of the shock-absorber valves and modified the front stabilizer spring rates and bush link, giving the car an enhanced road-holding capability.

Other updates include the reduction of minute vibrations and road noise, the addition of new Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT standard tires.

The brakes have also been retuned for a more firm and linear response at everyday speeds, making smooth braking more intuitive. Moreover, steering is now easier to use during in-town maneuvers.

In terms of styling, the updated Nissan GT-R features new LED headlights with AFS (Adaptive Front lighting System) and a distinctive "lightning" motif, while the four-ring taillights now form coherent circles of illumination.

The GT-R also gains a new body color called Gold Flake Red Pearl, featuring microscopic gold-tinted glass flakes infused into the red paint. Nissan also offers an optional carbon rear wing, which is attached to a carbon trunk lid that weighs half than the standard trunk lid.

On the inside, the new model year car comes with a choice of three color schemes including a new pale ivory trim option. The steering wheel gets a leather wrap, while the part-aniline leather seats are feature stitched accents. Less noise enters the cabin even at high speeds thanks to optimized insulation and acoustic tuning.

Sales of the 2014 Nissan GT-R begin in Japan on December 2, with other markets worldwide to get the car next year.
