Nissan Officially Announce 2010 Japanese Specification R35 GT-R

October 21, 2009


Officially announced today is the 2010 specification Nissan GT-R for the Japanese market. We’d heard the rumours of some of the updates to feature in this iteration of Godzilla but today all is confirmed and more. Keep in mind that these changes may well trickle down to MY2011 specification Nissan GT-Rs in other regions but none of that is confirmed yet.

Suspension is retuned to enhance ride comfort while still providing direct feedback from the road surface. The front shock absorbers are improved as well as an increase in the stiffness of the front springs. Rear radius rod bushings have also been strengthened.

The SpecV‘s rear diffuser is indeed available now on all models standard which improves cooling in the rear floor area. Something many GT-R owners noticed in previous model years.

New style, higher flowing, catalytic converters are adopted to improve low and mid range engine response.

On the inside, the Japanese CARWINGS system is enhanced and the audio system now features a USB port with iPod connectivity capability.

The MY2010 SpecV also receives some updates, the rear shock settings are tweaked which should improve ride and handling. SpecV’s are also now delivered with Dunlop tires standard instead of the Bridgestones. Bridgestones are now optional.

Nissan Releases New-Spec Nissan GT-R

YOKOHAMA (Oct. 21, 2009) – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced the release of the latest version of the Nissan GT-R, which goes on sale on December 7th at Nissan dealers nationwide in Japan. The updated GT-R receives a number of enhancements, including a revised navigation system, recalibrated suspension settings and an improved-flow catalyst system. It is scheduled to go on sale in other global markets beginning next spring.

Since its introduction in the Japanese market in December 2007, the Nissan GT-R has gone through continuous evolution, remaining on the cutting-edge of multi-dimensional performance. The GT-R has also been acclaimed globally, winning more than 50 top awards in various categories since launch. Nissan also supports GT-R owners with exceptional after-sales service.

The latest revisions to GT-R include a new HDD-based CARWINGS navigation system with enhanced entertainment functions. A USB port with iPod®*1 connectivity allows the driver and passengers to enjoy their favorite music in the car, creating an even more pleasant interior environment. *2

In addition, the GT-R’s suspension has been retuned to offer enhanced, premium quality ride comfort, while still providing the driver with a feeling of direct contact with the road surface. The accuracy of the front shock absorbers and springs has been increased and the stiffness of rear suspension radius rod bushings has been strengthened. Rear diffusers with cooling ducts, previously available only on the GT-R SpecV, have been expanded to non-SpecV models, improving cooling performance around the rear floor area.

The exclusive Nissan GT-R SpecV models receive revised rear shock absorber settings, enhancing the characteristic combination of supple ride comfort and flat, predictable handling. In conjunction with this change, SpecV now comes standard with Dunlop tires. The previously standard Bridgestone tires are available as a factory-installed option.

Finally, both the Nissan GT-R and GT-R SpecV achieve improved low- and mid-range engine response, thanks to newly adopted hexagonal meshed catalyst cells that reduce ventilation/airflow resistance.
