Inside, Nissan GT-R's four-passenger cabin again balances functionality with a
sense of ease and comfort. It features sculpted performance bucket seats for an

Offered in 2 Models: GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition
Following a major revision just last year, the 2013 Nissan GT-R is offered in
two models - GT-R Premium and the GT-R Black Edition with special lightweight
black aluminum forged RAYS wheels, unique read and black interior, Recaro
leather-appointed seats and new dry carbon fiber rear spoiler. The 2013 Nissan
GT-R is once again anchored by an advanced 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 engine
matched with a high-performance 6-speed dual-clutch transmission. Engine
efficiency has been improved for the new model year, which helps raise
horsepower to 545 hp (versus the previous 530 horsepower) and torque to 463

Chassis and Suspension
GT-R is built on an exclusive Premium Midship platform, which enables the use of
the world's first independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system.
This system places the transmission, transfer case and final drive at the rear
of the vehicle, optimizing weight distribution and maximizing handling
Total vehicle adjustability is provided by a "set-up switch" located in the
center of the instrument panel, enabling the driver to adjust transmission
shifts, shock absorbers and the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC-R) among three
settings - Normal, Special or "R," for ultimate handling.
The Nissan GT-R suspension has been retuned for 2013. The vehicle again utilizes
a special Bilstein DampTronic system, and the braking system consists of Brembo
full-floating drilled rotors, low steel high stiffness brake pads and Brembo
monoblock six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers.
The 2013 Nissan GT-R's lightweight 10-spoke forged aluminum 20-inch RAYS wheels
feature a premium dark (near black) finish, which provides a high quality,
high-performance look. They are mounted with Dunlop Sports Max GT 600 DSST CTT
tires - 255/40 R20 in front and 285/35 R20 in the rear. The Black Edition
features special metallic black six-spoke RAYS lightweight wheels with Dunlop
Sports Max GT 600 DSST CTT tires - 255/40 R20 in front and 285/35 R20 in the
Safety equipment includes a Nissan Advanced Air Bag System for driver and front
passenger, front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags for driver and
front-passenger and standard roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air
bags for front seat occupant head protection - along with front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters and tension reducers, and three-point ELR/ALR
rear seat belts.
The 2013 Nissan GT-R is sold and serviced through nearly 700 Nissan dealers that
have attained "GT-R Certification" status by meeting a number of strict sales,
service and facilities commitments - including dedicating a master technician to
GT-R service, special training for service managers and technicians, and
designating dealer principals, executive managers and general managers as the
primary communicators and negotiators in sales transactions.
