Home / Automotive / News / Everything You Need To Know About The Changes On The 2017 R35 Nissan Gt-r.


The R35 Nissan GT-R has been with us almost 10 years, so the 2017 MY version’s facelift is very welcome indeed. It’s actually the second refresh the GT-R has been given, but what’s new? As you can see from the comparison image above, not a whole lot, but the changes do freshen up the R35’s ageing face. At the front we have new intakes either side of the bumper with smaller daytime running lights, a larger front intake with a V-shaped insert into the upper section, and a new lip spoiler.

The side skirts are new too, as are the vents around the exhaust pipes. As well as bringing the GT-R’s aesthetic a little more up-to-date, the tweaks also lower drag without changing downforce levels.The interior has been given a thorough going over also. There’s a whole new dashboard featuring a new infotainment system based around an eight-inch touchscreen, which reduces the number of controls from 27 to 11 - so the centre console is less of a button fest. The gear-shift paddles for the six-speed dual-clutch gearbox meanwhile are now mounted on the steering wheel, rather than on the steering column.

Power from the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 has been increased from 542bhp to 562bhp, thanks to “individual ignition-timing control of the cylinders and extra boost from the turbochargers”. It should sound better too, thanks to a new titanium exhaust. There’s no word on performance figures just yet, but with such a modest boost in power, expect the 2.8 second 0-62mph time to remain the same.Tempted? It’ll be available to order in Europe from April, with the first cars being delivered to customers this Autumn.
