Nissan tweaks GT-R for 2009

Wald Nissan GT-R fq

In the constant drive for perfection Nissan has made some fine tweaks to it’s hero model the GT-R. The GT-R will benefit from a few engineering and cosmetic changes for the 2009 model year in Japan, beginning with a slight increase in performance that brings output up by five hp. Other modifications include a larger fuel tank — expanded from 71 litres to 73.8 litres — a slight increase in fuel economy (about .3 km/l), “Nissan” replacing “Brembo” on the brake calipers, a new mounting location for the front license plate.

Pricing will also increase by another 5% in 2009 and it’s expected that most of these changes will be adopted on global-spec vehicles when the “Series II” production run begins next year.
