It's got a new face
Nissan tells us the size of the front opening was increased by twenty per cent, allowing for better cooling not just for the radiator, but the oil cooler too. The fascia, also new, helps manage air flow around the wheels as well.
But it’s not all about numbers, as Nissan - quite rightly - says “you don’t drive in a wind tunnel, you drive in the real world where wind is coming from everywhere, and a lot of the subtle changes we’ve done help us manage that airflow in real world situations and real world vehicle attitudes, not just a lab condition”.
Also, anyone else thinks it looks more like the original GT-R concept car than ever before? Nissan agrees, but not just on a cosmetic level. “These things are all purposeful. They’re not all cosmetic. We only made the change where it improved the function.”
