Nissan presents the restyled GT-R at the New York Auto Show. Try to spot the differences

This is the restyled Nissan GT-R, which has just been presented at the New York Auto Show. It is also a hard observation test. Unless you are a total GT-R freak, it will be hard to spot what is different in this one from the currently available. Have a try.

If you have not been able to tell the differences, we will help you. The V-motion front grille has been updated, as well as the front and rear bumpers. The sills have been widened in order to provide better air flow.

In other words, most of the changes have been to improve aerodynamics. Apart, of course, from the V6 engine and the new interior, which you can see below.

The 3.8 VR38DETT V6 has now 421 kW at 6,800 rpm and 633 Nm from 3,300 rpm to 5,800 rpm, against the 407 kW of the previous version of the engine. It now has a special titanium exhaust that still ends in 4 tailpipes. The car uses a 6-speed automated dual-clutch transmission.

The GT-R is 4.71 m long, 1.90 m wide, 1.37 m tall and it has a wheelbase of 2.78 m. Deliveries of the new model will begin at the end of the first semester of this year.
