Nissan is preparing another breathtaking sport car. Not only performance, but also styling, especially exterior design are magnificent. Its break through of $100,000 cost is now more reasonable for planned 2018 Nissan GT-R. Redesigned car will also offer hybrid mix of the powertrains, for unreal 700 hp. These are all plans, and Japanese company plans big bites. If new GT-R comes true, it could wipe competition, or make it even better for exotic cars lovers, since all other companies must do something if they don’t want to go to history books.
2018 Nissan GT-R hybrid
Exotic vehicle has been announced as a hybrid model. Petrol unit used by 2018 Nissan GT-R is a 3.0-l V6, and electric battery is mated to it, but its power is still unknown. A five-speed sequential transmission is boosted with carbon clutch and pneumatic paddle shifters. And according to sources, it can transfer around 700 horses to wheels. That makes this twin-turbo engine one of the most powerful units in the segment, but it is still away from Veyron. With front- and all-wheel drive systems offered, new GT-R will sprint to 60 mh in just 2.7 seconds, or even faster. Top speed should be a step closer to 200 mph from current 193.
2018 Nissan GT-R price and competition
With Veyron still out of its class, 2018 Nissan GT-R will fight for users with Chevy Corvette, Audi R18 e-tron Quattro and new Porsche Hybrid among others. Price for entry-level models is around $100,000. And even more for editions, such as Gold and Black. Release date wasn’t announced yet. We assume car is coming not before 2018.
2018 Nissan GT-R styling
From what we saw from sketches, Nissan is planning revolutionary design for this car. It is unknown how far they reached with development. Even if it is going to be close to projected, it is unbelievable.
