Nissan launches new GT-R in Japan

Nissan has officially unveiled the updated version of its giant-killing GT-R in Japan today.

The car's styling modifications may be limited, but underneath the manufacturer insists it has carefully rethought or retuned the GT-R to offer the 'world's best multi-performance and responsive driving pleasure.'

That should not be dismissed as an idle statement. The current GT-R is already one of the finest performance cars ever conceived, and its successor apparently boasts more power, improved handling, better aerodynamics and greater fuel efficiency.
