Drivers looking for a 2014 Nissan GT-R will have an especially difficult task during the new model year: In addition to deploying yet more performance enhancements throughout the 2014 range—now at dealerships—the brand will also release a pair of exclusive Nissan GT-R models from which to choose.
Now, first off, although the engine specs for the 2014 Nissan GT-R don’t change—and with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 making 545 hp and 463 lb.-ft. of torque, why should they?—the powerplant has been retuned for better mid- and upper-rpm response. Then, the car’s handling reflexes have been upgraded as well, with a number of suspension refinements working together to deliver a lower center of gravity, better high-speed handling, and a more comfortable ride in all scenarios.
From the style department, each hand-built engine in the 2014 Nissan GT-R now shows off an aluminum nameplate indicating its builder, the upscale Nissan GT-R Black Edition welcomes a new steering wheel with red accents, and a Premium Interior Package premieres, highlighted by front seats with semi-aniline leather appointments.
There is, however, a price to be paid for all of these improvements, and in the case of the 2014 Nissan GT-R, that premium is $2,770, for a new starting point at $99,590; the 2014 Nissan GT-R Black Edition, adding Recaro seats, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler and more, opens at $109,330 (an increase of $3,010 over the 2013 model).
But that’s not all, folks … as mentioned, there are two new faces in the 2014 Nissan GT-R lineup.
