Overview

What's New for 2013:
  • More powerful engine
  • Modified drivetrain components
  • Re-tuned suspension
  • Additional standard equipment

Exterior Features
The 2013 Nissan GT-R is equipped with 20-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in nitrogen-filled run-flat performance tires, flat-blade wipers designed for maximum effectiveness at maximum velocity, LED running lights and taillights, and quad 5-inch exhaust outlets. The GT-R Black Edition includes wheels that are painted black, the brake calipers are painted red, and the rear spoiler is made of carbon fiber. Beneath the steel, aluminum, composite, and carbon fiber body, aerodynamic undertrays cover the GT-R's underpinnings to help produce a .26 coefficient of drag, according to Nissan. The GT-R's trunk is rated to carry 8.8 cubic feet of luggage.

Interior Features
Performance seats with leather bolsters and suede inserts, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bose premium sound, navigation system, keyless entry and push-button ignition, and Bluetooth connectivity are standard on the Nissan GT-R. The Black Edition model adds red-and-black Recaro seats upholstered in leather. A configurable information display with a data recorder ensures that the driver is continually informed about vehicle acceleration, braking and cornering performance.

Optional Features
Because every 2013 Nissan GT-R is comprehensively equipped in standard format, few options are available. Buyers can choose Super Silver paint, floor mats with \"GT-R\" embroidered on them, and a Cold Weather package with special all-season run-flat performance tires and a unique coolant mixture for cold-weather climates.

Under the Hood
For 2013, the Nissan GT-R's hand-built, twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter V-6 engine develops 15 extra horsepower and 15 more lb.-ft. of torque, for a total of 545 horsepower and 463 lb.-ft. A 6-speed automated dual-clutch manual gearbox with manual and automatic shift modes delivers power to the GT-R's rear wheels. As conditions warrant, up to half the engine's output is transferred to the front wheels for extra traction and grip.

Additional hardware highlights include front-mounted 15.4-inch Brembo floating drilled brake discs, 6-piston front and 4-piston rear brake calipers, and a continuously damping Bilstein DampTronic suspension system. The GT-R's transmission, suspension and stability control systems are governed by three driver-selected driving modes: Normal, Special and R-Mode. A Snow mode is also available for the transmission, helping to improve grip in slippery conditions.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Nissan GT-R are 16 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg in combined driving. Premium fuel is required.

Safety
Every 2013 Nissan GT-R is equipped with 6 air bags, 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, traction and stability control systems, and a reversing camera.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has performed crash tests on the 2013 Nissan GT-R as this overview is written.
