The 2017 Nissan GTR is here, and it’s slightly more angular.
As the performance figures for this car not yet officially released, it’s only natural that we comment only on the styling and interior. Here are our first impressions on this new 2017 GTR.
At first glance, the exterior appears to be slightly more angular, as if Nissan were trying to update the looks without losing the characteristic face that gives the 2017 Nissan GTR its unique personality. It has also been said these changes are not for stylistic purposes only, some aerodynamic benefits are to be expected. The overall looks are true to the car’s image and spirit, but have been tastefully updated in a long overdue visual overhaul.
The interior is what has left many shocked, since it now appears to be much more refined, and functional too. The shifting paddles have been moved to the steering wheel itself rather than the steering column. While that change may seem irrelevant, it is actually somewhat of a game changer in terms of driving feel and communicating with the car. The rest of the inside is actually refined and very well thought out, with small modifications that add up to a better driving experience.
Performance is likely to increase slightly, so a huge power increase isn’t a big possibility, nonetheless we all know the real spirit of the GTR is to be the most versatile tuning platform… in the world.
