Next-gen Nissan GT-R to have 800 HP – report

by SpeedLux

New details are starting to emerge about the next generation Nissan GT-R (R36) that is set to come out towards the end of next year as a 2016MY.

We all know by now that the all-new GT-R will receive a hybrid powertrain and now we have also come to know from a Japanese magazine that the electric motor will work together with the familiar VR38DETT twin-turbo V6 3.8-liter engine. The engineers from Nismo will be tweaking this hardware arrangement which should provide the next-gen GT-R with a total output of awesome 800 HP (588 kW) thanks to the implementation of a KERS-like system developed in collaboration with Williams.

Talking about the performance, the GT-R R36 will allegedly need just 2.7 seconds to achieve the 0 to 62 mph (0-100 kmph) sprint while the quarter mile should be able to be completed in around 10 seconds. According to the same source, the model will come with a top speed of around 211 mph (340 kmph).

Talking about the pricing, expect a price tag to be somewhere between 120,000 and 150,000 USD whereas the current range-topping 600 HP GT-R Nismo comes with a price tag of 149,990 USD, without taking into account the 1,595 USD destination and handling charges.
