THE barnstorming 2013 Nissan GT-R Premium Edition will go on sale in February next year.
It features enhancements throughout the vehicle for increased performance, improved ride and handling, as well as greater customisation.
The 2013 model will be priced from $172,000 plus on-roads.
Nissan says notable modifications include improved engine response in both the mid and upper-rpm rev range, increased body rigidity, and specification changes to the shock absorbers, springs and front stabiliser. As a result, the vehicle's overall performance is increased, high-speed stability improved and ride quality is more refined.
A new luxury interior option will be offered that features hand-stitched semi-aniline leather in amber red colour (seat and door trims, centre console), further enhancing the sense of quality and style within the cabin.
The 2013 GT-R recorded a 0-100kmh time of 2.7 seconds last month at Sendai Hi Land Raceway, an improvement of 0.1 seconds compared to the 2012 edition, and lapped the Nürburgring Nordschliefe circuit in 7minutes 19.1 seconds.
