The remasked Nissan GT-R captivates in New York
Amidst the usual chaos at the New York International Auto Show, a blaze of orange sporting some ‘blaze metallic’ headlights hardly went unnoticed.
The fresh-faced GT-R left a clear impression, as the flagship of the Japanese automaker now dons an intimidating V-shaped grill, with a widened front fascia, believed to improve cooling. The body has largely kept its beastly look, but elsewhere the car has redefined entirely.
The interior has been overhauled visually and functionally: center console switches have been reduced from 27 to just 16, the paddle shifters have been relocated to the steering wheel and the seats have been given that Gran Turismo treatment.
It’s a wonder how anyone gets any work done at Nissan when this is what they have lying around.
