2014 Nissan GT-R Arrives in January With 545-HP

2014 Nissan GT-R
Nissan has confirmed the updates for the US-spec 2014 Nissan GT-R supercar, which is slated to arrive in January 2013. The 2014 GT-R's 3.8L engine has been updated with improved intake efficiency, reduced airflow resistance and improved exhaust emissions, which all leads to a 15-horsepower increase to 545-hp.

Other updates to the GT-R's engine include new fuel injectors for enhanced torque response and improved throttle and acceleration feel at mid-and high-rpm ranges. Nissan has also added an oil pan baffle to stabilize oil behavior and just as before, each engine is hand-assembled from beginning to end in a special clean room by a single technician, a process similar to racing powerplant construction. For 2014, an aluminum nameplate is added to each engine showing the name of the engine constructor.

Even though there aren't any changes to the 2014 GT-R's exterior, Nissan has made some improvements to its interior. The Premium model interior features a change in color and stitching for a higher quality look and feel. In addition, the Black Edition model's steering wheel features new coordinated red accents. The biggest interior change for 2014 is availability of a new optional Premium Interior Package with exclusive Red Amber color semi-aniline leather appointments with hand-stitching on the front seats, along with Red Amber accents on the instrument panel, steering wheel, door trim, armrests and shift knob.
