2013 Nissan GT-R Review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The GT-R is a racetrack-bred sports car with four seats. Rivals include the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, but unlike that car, the GT-R has all-wheel drive.
New for 2013
Nissan continues to increase the output of the GT-R’s engine; for 2013, it’s rated at 545 horsepower and 463 pounds-feet of torque, an increase of 15 hp and 15 pounds-feet of torque. Other changes include a newly standard backup camera and revised suspension tuning. The Black Edition gains a handmade carbon fiber rear spoiler.
Exterior
Unlikely to be mistaken for any other car, the audacious-looking GT-R is shaped to cheat the wind, route cooling air where it’s needed and maintain aerodynamic downforce in the front and rear. Exterior features include:

  • Lightweight 20-inch wheels
  • Steel, aluminum and carbon fiber construction to save weight and help handling balance
  • “Super wide beam” headlights

Interior
The GT-R has the driver-oriented cockpit expected of a performance car, with a large tachometer front and center. The seats hug their occupants tightly — a necessity on the track — but the floor space is unrestrictive. Technically a four-seater, the GT-R could handle two adults in front and two kids in back. Nissan says the trunk can accommodate two golf bags or suitcases. Interior features include:

  • Eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat
  • Multifunction display records data such as mileage, cornering force and acceleration
  • Steering-column paddles for manual shifting
  • Bose stereo

Under the Hood
The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 produces 545 hp and 463 pounds-feet of torque. Mechanical features include:

  • Rear-mounted six-speed transmission with auto and manual modes
  • Rear-biased all-wheel drive
  • Summer performance tires standard; all-season tires available

Safety
Standard safety features include:

  • Front-seat side-impact airbags
  • Front side curtain airbags
  • Antilock disc brakes
  • Electronic stability system

Fun car to own and drive.

This car is a very fast but reliable car. I built my car to over 1000 hp and used it as a daily driver. Fun project car that gets lots of looks.

4.9

It is the best performance for your money.

This car will out perform many car cost twice the money. It is reliable and many of the maintenance can be done yourself. Because it is a Nissan you fine parts in your local auto parts store, ext, a oil filter can be found and you buy bigger oil filter ( more filtration). this car is also the best sleeper-car and only the true motor head knows you have a super car.
