2016 Nissan GT-R
New generation of Nissan’s super car is being prepared and it is almost certain we will see it as 2016 Nissan GT-R. No official info about details are available, but some rumors have shown in company’s homeland Japan. Boosted performance to an almost unbelievable level, with design details better than ever, 2016 GT-R should make impact on the market and street soon. As an extra, hybrid version is being prepared.
2016 Nissan GT-R engine
Existing engine should be carried over to Nissan GT-R 2016 year model. It is twin-turbo 3.8-l V6. This drivetrain can deliver 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque. However, 2016 Nissan GT-R gets Formula 1-style Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), to boost it performance for additional 250 horses, which makes this performance-tuned car to go over 800 hp. Regular 2016 GT-R sprints 0-60 mpg in 2.7 seconds, while KERS supported models do it in just under 2 seconds. Top speed is 211 mph (340 km/h). With these numbers, new Nissan will top all competition records, from Audi R8 to Ferrari California and new Porsche 911.
2016 Nissan GT-R hybrid
Next New York car show should host presentation of hybrid version of 2016 Nissan GT-R. It is known as all-wheel driven car. Now, Nissan is pairing electric motor with existing 3.8-l twin-turbo V6 drivetrain. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is connected to engine and sends power to rear wheels. Electric motors will power front wheels. This combo is good for over 800 hp and 847 lb-ft of torque, but these numbers could go up since 2016 GT-R Hybrid is still in developing stage.
2016 Nissan GT-R competition and price
Pricing for the 2016 Nissan GT-R is still unknown. Comparing to previous models, we can guess that base models could start at $120.000, and these performance boosted can go up to $200.000. Hybrid version of new Nissan GT-R will battle other super cars, such as McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari, while standard vehicle goes on the market against other models from same companies.
