I believe that it is not necessary to say that the three letters GT-R have already been printed in your mind. From the name of “God of War” endowed by R32, to the emergence of countless film works, or the breakthroughs in the lap time, and even the wonderful cases that are constantly brought in the modification circle…
It can be said that each When there is a new evolution about GT-R, it will attract the attention of countless people.
However, in the face of the increasingly competitive performance car market, the former “Godzilla” also needs to evolve through self-development to compete with opponents. At the recent New York Auto Show, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary, Nissan released the 2020 GT-R Nismo.
Although it still maintains 600 HPs, it uses the GT-R GT3’s turbine components, with fewer turbine blades and an optimized turbine shape that increases turbine response by 20%.
However, the biggest change is still in the weight reduction of the car body. Let us start with the appearance. The most intuitive change is to add a wheel arch air groove similar to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS at the front wheel fender.
According to the data, the guide trough not only can effectively accelerate the heat dissipation of the engine compartment, but also can increase the down force of the front axle. In addition, the wheel is also replaced with a stronger and lighter RAYS forged wheel. In addition to the new Brembo carbon ceramic brake system, in addition to a more competitive appearance, it also helps to reduce the quality of the unsprung.
In addition to the above-mentioned new changes that can be seen intuitively, Nissan has also used a large area of carbon fiber for the GT-R for the first time. These include the hood, fenders, front and rear bumpers, side skirts, roofs, big tails and more. The weight loss effect is already obvious.
According to reports, the 2020 GT-R Nismo has been reduced by 20kg compared to the 2018 model.
In order to highlight the difference between the new GT-R Nsimo, the interior is replaced with a new red and black Recaro bucket chair. However, talking about the gearbox of the GT-R R35, it also led to a major upgrade in the new car.
Optimized, the car-specific R-mode re-adjusts for a more aggressive downshift and provides smarter and faster gear shifting. It can be seen that Nissan’s expectations for GT-R are very high. Before the replacement, the final performance of the contemporary GT-R was squeezed out, only to continue the name of “Godzilla”. And will this be the last form before the “Godzilla” GT-R R35 replacement? Let us continue to wait and see!
