2012 Nissan GT-R Better then Before
Entering its fourth year of production in the North American market, the 2012 Nissan GT-R has a new look, new colors, new wheel design and, most important to the fans of pure power, more horsepower under the hood.
The aerodynamics have been improved for 2012 with down force increased by about 10% and drag reduced to 0.26 (from 0.27). Stability is improved by enlarged fascia and grille openings, which also help reduce air resistance inside the engine compartment. The volume of air that passes through the radiator and cools the front brakes is also increased.
