2011 Nissan GT-R

Posted: 05/27/2010 - 3:15 PM ET

The single MSRP associated with the 2011 Nissan GT-R is $84,060. That's about $10,000 more than the base price for a Chevrolet Corvette, just about the same as a Jaguar XK and about $7000 less than a Dodge Viper. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the new GT-R is able to deliver 16/21 mpg urban/rural. Fill its 19.5 gallon fuel reservoir and travel up to 400 miles before it gets thirsty again. The new GT-R from the Japanese automaker is now in its 5th generation, but this is the first time it has ever been made available to North Americans. In Japan, it has long been venerated as a supercar that optimizes performance standards and technological advancements.

As you would expect, the 2011 GT-R Nissan can shred pavement and burn rubber well enough to justify its hefty price tag. A twin-turbo 3.8L 485-horse (at 6400 RPM) 434 pound/foot (at 3200 RPM) hand-built V6 engine lurks under the hood, bursting with ready power. It is joined by a rear-mounted, paddle-shifted, dual clutch sequential 6-speed transmission that features electronically controlled all wheel drive. Throw in electronically controlled, self-adjusting independent suspension, 15-inch Brembo brakes and 20-inch wheels of forged alloy, and you'll experience handling as responsive as any on the market.

The cabin of the Nissan GT-R 2011 features quite comfortable performance bucket seats. You'll also find a navigation/audio control/diagnostic information video screen that's centrally located, positioned above and to the right of the console-mounted one push starter button. "Premium" is the single trim available, and premium it is. A load of standard creature technology features are presented including:

  • Speed sensitive windshield wipers;
  • Automatic headlights;
  • iPod/USB interface;
  • Bluetooth streaming audio;
  • XM NavWeather;
  • XM NavTraffic;
  • More...

All of those cool techie features are able to be enjoyed without being cramped as well. Front occupants will relax in a well-appointed atmosphere including 38 inches of headroom, 54 inches of shoulder room, 55 inches of hip room and a quite impressive 44.6 inches of legroom. You should be aware up front that the new GT-R is not really designed for rear passenger comfort. Although 50 inches of rear shoulder room exists, rear headroom, hip room and legroom are reported at only 34, 45 and 26.4 inches respectively. Also, don't plan on doing much hauling either; the maximum cargo capacity is already stretched out as far as it can go at just 8.8 cubic feet. And although standard seating is listed for 4, in truth, 2 adults up front, an infant and a toddler in the back would probably work best.

Don't let that get you down though; the 2011 Nissan GT-R is well-suited for child occupants anyway; it wasn't meant to be. What's wrong with adults having some serious fun anyway? This isn't exactly a friendly little Nissan Leaf, so leave the kiddies at home. Then, hit some challenging roads and test the limits of performance, agility and excitement delivered. The GT-R's 3829-pound curb weight is well balanced on its wheelbase of 109.8 inches. Length, width and height measurements are 183.1, 74.9 and 54.0 inches respectively. Go ahead, take those sharp corners a little too fast. It's all right; the GT-R offers a load of standard safety features too. The best thing to do is to go test drive one. It's free, educational and a whole lot of fun!
