2009 Nissan GTR Photo And Reviews

The only transmission that will be available in the GT-R is a GR6 dual-clutch six-speed. The GT-R's powertrain is reportedly good for a zero to 60 time of 3.5 seconds, a quarter mile time of only 11.7 seconds and a top speed of 192 mph.

In addition, recent reports indicate the GT-R lapped the Nurburgring's Nordschleife in 7 min 35 seconds - placing it in some pretty elite company. That time trails the Pagani Zonda F by two seconds and the Koenigsegg CCR by one, but the GT-R lapped the track faster than a Mercedes SLR McLaren (7 min 40 sec), Porsche 911 Turbo (7 min 40 sec) and the Corvette Z06 (7 min 42 sec).

GT-R's hybrid body construction combines steel, carbon fiber and die-cast aluminum, and features a low coefficient of drag of 0.27, while achieving high front and rear downforce.

Pricing for the sports car starts at $69,850 - $71,900 for the premium edition - in the United States.

Nissan dealers have to attain 'GT-R Certification' status by meeting a number of strict sales, service and facilities commitments, including dedicating a master technician to GT-R service, special training for service managers and technicians, and designating dealer principals, executive managers and general managers as the primary communicators/negotiators in sales transactions.

'A supercar as special as the new Nissan GT-R - and its owners - requires a truly exceptional level of care and handling,' said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. 'These Certified GT-R dealers are making a substantial investment in their showrooms, service tools and technician training - helping ensure that the purchase and ownership of the new GT-R will be an exciting experience for our customers, every step of the way.'
