2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo: Same Power But a Much-Improved Cabin

The 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo gets the most significant upgrade since the model was released into the market a decade ago as the successor to the R34 Skyline GT-R. Japanese automaker unveiled an updated iteration of the GT-R earlier this year and now it is integrating similar tweaks to the GT-R Nismo.

There’s some good news and bad news. The bad news come first: there is the same 600 hp power output from the 3.8-liter VR38DETT twin-turbo V6 engine. The good news is that the cabin gets the same updates as the standard GT-R, modern upgrades that were long overdue for Nissan’s performance flagship.

While the Nismo variant does not feature many of the standard GT-R’s upscale cabin bits, the new interior marks a remarkable improvement. There’s a new, bigger 8.0-inch touchscreen that can also be operated using a console-mounted knob. Microsuede bedeck the dashboard, the redesigned steering wheel, and the carbon-backed Recaro shell seats. In addition, the number of integrated navigation and audio controls have been reduced from 27 to just 11.

In terms of performance, the GT-R Nismo is just as blisteringly fast as before, and it may even be able to record quicker lap times because of its upgraded chassis. The stabilizers, shocks, and springs have been retuned to correspond with stiffer body structure. The twin-turbo V6 has been left unchanged, as well as the 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive system.

Overall, the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo is an absorbing, impressive and spectacular supercar-stomping, high-tech dynamo that only seems to get better and better over time as it is continuously evolving.
