Nissan GT-R 2010: Experience the difference.

Forty years which have followed the Skyline GT-R the most powerful and effective than the other, to achieve the result we have before us today: the sedan seats four fastest in the world.
In the spirit Kaisen, philosophy of continuous improvement, process improvements continues today with the GT-R R35 2010.
Externally, the front and rear bumpers have a double layer of clear varnish which enhances the color depth of finish.
Inside, the dials of the tachometer and rev counter are ringed aluminum. The rear seats are more careful insulation, improving the sophistication of the interior.

Two conduits were added to the aerodynamic diffuser in carbon fiber positioned at the base to ensure better cooling of the exhaust box.
In addition, the pipe connecting the oil cooler is new and largest section, in order to lower the temperature of the gearbox. Another modification, transmission media before were stiffened to reduce vibration in the driveline under high loads.
The balance of the electronic brake force distribution was slightly shifted to the rear, resulting in greater braking stability in the dry, while a design change of part of the rear brakes reduces noise , and a reworked air deflector increases rear brake cooling.
The treatment of emissions has been revised to put the GT-R in accordance with the Euro 5 without loss of power or performance. It results in a reduction in CO2 emissions by 3 g to 295 g / km.
