2012 U.S.-Spec Nissan GT-Rs New “Black Edition” makes LA Show debut

by Alex

Powerful, interiors designed with subtlety, exquisite exterior styling, and chassis updates – with all of these, the U.S.-spec 2012 Nissan GT-R made its debut run at the Los Angeles auto show in its brand new black model.

Keeping the street-scenario in mind, no other vehicle can afford to match up to the Nissan GT-R. Every new version catches the awe of its fans, impatient and anxious, instilling in them a sense of curiosity as to what next the Japanese would incorporate so as to make things better — some more power?

Without undergoing any sort of radical modifications, 2012 U.S. – spec model squeezes 530 ponies out of the 3.8-liter twin turbo V6, also known as the VR38DETT, and 488 lb-ft (662 Nm) of asphalt shredding torque. A fiddle with the boost pressure, a slight makeover in the valve timing, petty optimization in the air mixture ratio is a half day’s work of the Japanese geniuses, if we do not acknowledge the improvement in the aerodynamics.

It was gifted with a refreshing look, double rectifier fins, optimizing the airflow around the wonder car’s nose. The air intakes have grown in size, thereby increasing the efficiency in cooling the engine.

Nissan holding back their official figures in secret files, creates a blur regarding what would be the consequences of the advancements. Nevertheless, a bit of common sense can dawn the realization that this vehicle would be very fast.

Internally, the car was modified slightly with new carbon fiber trim and updated materials.

The 10-spoke 20-inch RAYS alloys gives the car a nearly black finish. Innovations were made in the knurling inside the wheels so as to allow them to avoid slipping, under the application of heavy brakes or when subjected to acceleration.

The red-trimmed Recaro seats, a dark headliner plus a different set of new RAYS rims, with a 6-spoke design adds a uniqueness to the Black Edition. It is forecast that when these vehicles will hit the sales next year, the Premium and the Black Edition would start off remarkably with $89,950 and $95,100, respectively.
