Default Report: 'Series II' Nissan GT-R in the works for 2009





Quote:
The Nissan GT-R has finally filtered its way into the retail channels of most global markets, with a fair number of customer cars on the streets. But just as those owners are getting familiar with their cars, Nissan appears to be working on a slightly revised and upgraded version for sale in 2009, tentatively dubbed the Series II.

Small changes are all that's in store, but the sum of those changes may make a noticeably different car. Horsepower is set to increase by 5hp to 478hp (356kW), the Brembo will be changed to show Nissan badges, the front license plate mount will be removed, the brakesfuel tank will increase by 0.75 gallons (2.8L) to hold 19.5 gallons (73.8L), a 5% price bump and a readjustment of the fuel economy figures from 19.3mpg (12.2L/100km) to 20.0mpg (11.7L/100km), reports GT-R Blog. Finally, a slight change in the white paint color will add the 'White Storm' title and a more metallic look to the exterior of cars that choose it.

Aside from the adjustment to the price, the changes are primarily cosmetic - the power and fuel economy changes are most likely paper changes only, reflecting further testing of the vehicle and what it can be claimed to achieve. That should put current owners and 'Series I' buyers at ease, though the issuance of an updated and revised model so soon after the first car shouldn't be a total surprise. Nissan followed a similar pattern with its 350Z, issuing a 2004.5 model with numerous cosmetic and minor mechanical updates .

The new updates to the GT-R are expected to first hit the Japanese market, slowly spreading outward across all markets over the coming months.

Ah, boo, I prefer "Brembo" emblazoned on my calipers. My R32 GT-R says "Nissan" on its calipers. ZzzZZz
