2011 Nissan GT-R – European-Spec Model

By Auto News Log • November 12th, 2009

Nissan has announced the release of the European-spec version of its GT-R that boasts a bevy of minor updates, mostly mechanical. Starting with the suspension, Nissan’s engineers changed the front spring and damper rates for better ride comfort, and increased the stiffness of the suspension radius rod bushings at the rear to improve feel and responsiveness during cornering. Another improvement for the 2011 MY GT-R is the addition of two NACA cooling ducts to the carbon fiber underfloor diffuser for extra cooling to the exhaust and gearbox while a new, larger diameter pipe connecting the oil cooler promises to reduce gearbox temperatures. The list of changes also includes a stiffened front transmission mount to reduce vibration through the driveline under high-load conditions.

The only visual upgrades for the 2011MY GT-R are its front and rear bumpers that benefit from a double coat, giving a deeper color finish, while inside, the speedometer and rev counter now sport gun metallic finish surrounds.
