Nissan has released pricing of its 2010 GTR supercar for the American market. The GTR, now with 485HP (a 5HP bump over the previous version) is offered in two forms; the standard GTR as well as the GTR Premium model. Pricing wise, the base model goes for US$ 80, 790 while the latter can be fetched for US$ 83, 040.
Just like the previous model, the 2010 GTR is powered by a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 that is mated to a 6 speed dual clutch transmission with a new Transmission Control Module (TCM) that optimizes clutch engagement for improved drivability. In addition, the braking system has been updated with more rigid brake lines for improved durability and the brake calipers now carry both the Brembo and Nissan logos. Finally, the GT-R’s suspension has been retuned with redesigned Bilstein shocks with a new valve body design and revised spring and damper rates.
The base GTR is now equipped with slightly darker, high-luster, smoke finish 20-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels, while a new “near-black” metallic wheel finish is standard on the Premium variant. For 2010, one new color; Pearl White is offered, while the Super Silver exterior color has been enhanced to include a polished front bumper.
Other upgrades available for the all wheel drive Nissan GTR include an iPod Converter which costs US$ 400 and carpeted GTR floor mats which demands an extra US$ 280. The supercar with 588Nm of torque will be available in selected Nissan showrooms in America from March 21st onwards. Nissan also revealed that these dealers will also have in-house master technicians specializing in servicing the 911 Turbo’s archenemy.
