The Nissan GT-R is removing a bit prolonged in a tooth, yet we might not see a new generation enter prolongation for several years. Speaking with Autocar, Nissan pattern trainer Alfonso Albaisa pronounced a group is operative on early sum of a new vehicle. This includes finalizing a new height and powertrain, that he pronounced will expected underline electrification.
“The plea is on a engineer, to be honest,” he said. “We will do a jobs when a time comes to make a automobile something unequivocally special. But we’re not even tighten to that yet.”
The new Nissan GT-R is expected to arrive early subsequent decade, Autocar estimates. It could steal record from a LMP1 GT-R hybrid race car, that was created for a 2016 World Endurance Championship yet never got off a belligerent since Nissan withdrew from it from foe following a unsatisfactory initial season. This automobile featured a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 and hybrid system, and if Nissan went with this setup again, the automobile could kick a stream GT-R’s 565 hp in customary form. We final clocked a GT-R attack 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, and a new chronicle could unequivocally good be quicker.
“Whether we go to a lot of foundation or nothing during all, we can grasp a lot energy wise,” Albaisa said. “But we are unequivocally creation a new ‘platform’ and a idea is clear: GT-R has to be a quickest automobile of a kind. It has to ‘own’ a track. And it has to play a modernized record game; yet that doesn’t meant it has to be electric.”
Nissan recently partnered adult with Italdesign on a special-edition indication desirous by a GT-R. The GT-R50, that debuted during Goodwood and could get a singular prolongation run, won’t unequivocally change a next-gen GT-R, however. He has unequivocally high ambitions for a sports car, though, observant it needs to be “the fastest super sports automobile in a world.” At a same time, it should contend a autocratic presence.
“It doesn’t caring what each other supercar in a universe is doing; it simply says: ‘I’m a GT-R, I’m a brick, locate me.’ It’s a world’s fastest brick, really,” Albaisa said. “And when we examination sketches for a new car, we contend that a lot: ‘Less wing, some-more brick.’”
