3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6 engine
Press the Nissan GT-R® accelerator and you feel more than raw power. The 545-hp twin-turbo V6 may be massive in strength, yet it’s highly refined, even earning ULEV-II emissions rating. Rather than traditional cast-iron liners, each cylinder features a unique plasma coating on cylinder walls, with an independent intake system for each bank of cylinders. The powerful twin turbo takes advantage of a Premium Midship (PM) design for balance, where much of the engine sits back in the chassis. Uniquely brilliant, built to perform.
Dual clutch 6-speed transmission with three driver-selectable modes
Two clutches, no clutch pedal. The GT-R® 6-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission shifts as quickly as 0.15 seconds when in R-Mode. Inside are separate clutches for the odd and even gears. When in an odd-numbered gear, the adjacent even-numbered gear is “pre-selected,” ready to make the shift immediately. Then, to achieve ideal front-to-rear weight distribution, the GT-R® clutches, transmission and transfer case are mounted in the rear of the chassis, creating the world’s first independent rear transaxle for an All-Wheel Drive vehicle.
ATTESA E-TS® All-Wheel Drive (AWD)
Instead of the traditional 50/50 torque split between front and rear axles, GT-R’s electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive system provides up to 100% of available torque to the rear wheels, and can send up to 50% of torque to the front wheels. This provides the steering feel and response of a rear-wheel vehicle, while giving the added confidence that only AWD can offer.
Exclusively developed track-tuned suspension
In addition to the Bilstein® DampTronic® suspension’s computerized control, the Track Edition has specially tuned shock absorbers and springs. The system has three driver-selectable driving modes and constantly monitors vehicle speed, lateral acceleration, torque, engine rpm, and braking behavior to help provide the ideal ride/handling balance. To match the precision of the other suspension components, high-accuracy progressive-rate springs were developed and manufactured to extremely high tolerances. [*]
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with three driver-selectable modes
Most stability control systems cut engine power or apply the brakes when they sense a loss of control. That’s fine for the road, but slow going in competition conditions. While cornering with the advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system in R-Mode, it actually sends more power to the appropriate wheels when it senses oversteer or understeer, helping to keep it on the steered course, a much quicker way to go in track conditions.

Carbon-fiber air inlets in the front spoiler and additional front/rear brake cooling guides
Heat: mortal enemy of the braking system. To help dissipate the extreme heat generated in the brakes under track circumstances, the 2014 GT-R® has new carbon-fiber air inlets in the front spoiler to feed the front brake cooling guides. We’ve also added cooling guides for the rear brakes.
High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights
High Intensity Discharge headlights employ three more sub-reflectors than conventional headlights, providing the GT-R® with wider, stronger illumination coverage.
LED Daytime Running Lights
Make a visual statement with powerful LED Daytime Running Lights. Twelve high-intensity lights enhance the look of your GT-R® and increase vehicle presence when the headlights are off.
20″ Special black super-lightweight forged-alloy RAYS® wheels
20″ super-lightweight black aluminum forged RAYS® wheels have knurled beads that help keep tires from slipping around the wheels under hard acceleration.[*]
Exclusively developed tires, nitrogen-filled at factory
Consider everything you expect from a tire—great grip, smooth ride, consistent performance—then add the necessity of taming 545 horsepower along with one of the most advanced powertrains and responsive suspensions Nissan has ever built. The Dunlop® SP Sport MAXX GT600 DSST CTT high-performance tires are filled with nitrogen, rather than conventional air, because nitrogen significantly reduces pressure changes during high-performance driving.

Premium Midship (PM) platform with hybrid unibody
By using a powerful twin-turbo V6 rather than a larger and heavier V8 or V12, the Nissan GT-R® exploits its PM design for ultimate balance. In the PM design, much of the engine sits well back in the chassis behind the front axle—for crisper turn-in, quick steering response and overall balance. The lighter, more compact engine also pays dividends in performance and other interior room.
Dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler
The Track Edition’s rear spoiler is as breathtaking to the eye as it is slippery to the wind. Hand made in a limited monthly production run, the lightweight carbon fiber is also incredibly strong. To make it a feast for the senses, a special coating allows you to feel the weave of the carbon fiber. [*]
Aerodynamic undertrays with vented carbon-fiber composite rear diffuser
One of the greatest Nissan GT-R® aerodynamic breakthroughs is nearly invisible. With traditional vehicles, air hitting components underneath the vehicle creates drag – slowing the car and creating lift—reducing grip and traction. By using a series of composite panels beneath the Nissan GT-R® (a technique derived from racecars), cooling air can be channeled to the running gear, while the underside remains clear of obstructions, creating downforce that literally pulls the car to the road.
Dual heated body-color power folding outside mirrors
The GT-R® outside mirrors are power-adjustable, heated, and they fold in to stay out of the way when you are parking in a tight spot.
