Nissan has finally brought in its supercar offering, the GT-R, in India. The 2017 Nissan GT-R is priced at Rs 1.99 crore, ex-showroom Delhi. Nissan had showcased the updated GT-R at the 2016 New York Auto Show while it debuted in India at the 2016 Auto Expo. Nissan claims that the updates the GT-R has received is the most important since its launch in 2007. The company had already started taking bookings for the GT-R with a deposit of Rs 25 lakh.

In terms of design, the 2017 Nissan GT-R gets an updated bodywork with better aerodynamics and a wider V-motion grille that gives it visual distinction when compared to the previous model. The Nissan GT-R carries an understated design without the flowing contours of some of its rivals, but it does not look dated. The interior has been revised with a new dashboard fascia and an 8-inch infotainment system.

The centre console design too has been tweaked with a tidier layout and a reduced number of switch gear that make it look more spacious than before. It does miss the currently trending Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, it uses an interface designed by Polyphony Digital, the studio known for the development of the Gran Turismo video game.

What makes the Nissan GT-R an iconic car is the 3.8-litre V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged motor that puts out an impressive 565PS (up from 553PS) and 633Nm (up from 628Nm). Power is sent to all four wheels via a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission. Nissan claims that the GT-R can sprint from 0 to 100kmph in less than 3 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 315kmph.
