Performance

The Nissan GT-R ranks itself as one of the world’s top-performance production cars and the 2015 GT-R doesn’t fail to impress either. The 2015 Nissan GT-R comes equipped with a Twin Turbo V-6, 3.8Liter ‘monster’ engine which generates an outstanding horsepower of 545 and torque of 463 lb/ft. This new GT-R model packs numerous aerodynamic and suspension improvements which are basically inherited from the Nissan’s GT3 racing model.

Additionally, the custom-developed dampers and special springs have improved the handling and cornering of the vehicle. Not to mention, the 2015 GT-R’s engine is quieter than ever before. The only sound you can hear is of the gargantuan exhaust when you ‘put the pedal to the medal’. Therefore, the GT-R feels more powerful and mature as compared to its competitors and predecessors. The best part is the Nissan GT-R is capable of reaching speeds of 0 to 60 MPH in less than 3 seconds. So, what more could a driver ask for?

Exterior

The 2015 Nissan GT-R hits the road as a luxury, subcompact 2-door vehicle. In terms of exterior styling, there is nothing more a person can say than simply ‘Amazing’. The GT-R has never been lacking in terms of style and the 2015 model will simply blow you away with a sportier and more aerodynamic look. It doesn’t borrow any styling cues from previous models except for the back end, otherwise the 2015 Nissan GT-R seems to have gone through a complete make-over.

Interior

Inside the 2015 Nissan GT-R there are many obvious improvements and additions. The cabin has improved over the past couple of years and feels more comfortable and sportier. The instrument panel and dashboard look completely different than any other Nissan Model and features a special black and red interior with bolstered seats. Additionally, the 2015 Nissan GT-R also proves to be incredibly spacious as compared to previous models, making it easier to get inside and out of the vehicle.

Features

The 2015 Nissan GT-R doesn’t lack any important features. All models come equipped with a Bose Audio System with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi streaming, heated front seats, power windows, doors, locks, a navigation system with real-time traffic and 3D mapping, and a sleek and impressive leather interior. Other configurations come with even more additional features, such as video frame-style performance gauges, touch screen, carbon-fiber spoiler, brake cooling, higher spring rates, and unique front spoiler with carbon-fiber air ducts.

Safety

Although the vehicle is pricey and powerful, Nissan has ensured the 2015 GT-R remains safe and provides optimal protection to passengers and drivers. The vehicle comes equipped with standard safety features, such as airbags, traction aid, and stability control. The NHTSA hasn’t yet rated the vehicle’s safety. Nevertheless, the car proves to be incredibly safe in all aspects.

In conclusion, it is safe to say the Nissan 2015 GT-R has definitely proved to be a beast and ranks itself as a high-performance luxury car. So, if you have money to ‘burn’ and are looking for a car which offers the best performance, the Nissan GT-R is clearly made for you!
