2015 Nissan GTR Spied Testing: Anaylsis
Here is your first look at the face lifted 2015 GTR (possibly to be known as EBA-R35) Seen in full camoflage, this test car was spotted by a few Japanese Blogs this week. A few days ago I noticed a few points of interest from this first photo when it was posted along with an article on the NISMO GTR. Now there is more evidence to back up those claims. Even though the car was taped up to hide the redesigns in the aerodynamic and cooling departments, GTR aficionado's can clearly see whats going on underneath. The 2015 GTR is expected to make its debut November 22 at the Tokyo Motor Show and be on sale in the late winter/spring here in the US with a NISMO version following.
On the Left side you can again see the darkness in that area and no discernible canards. Then you can see a raised curved area toward the top outside of the new opening
This second photo leaves no mistake that the front end has been changed. Smaller side mirrors appear to be present aswell as the bottom canard area seems to be replaced. The NIsmo GTR is expected to feature chrome red side mirrors(first seen on the NISMO Juke) as part of the universal NISMO branding theme. The inspiration is taken from the roof coloring of the NISMO/Autech Super GT500 racecar.
In this photo i have changes the contrast and mid tones to highlight the indention where the stacked canard is currently on the DBA-R35.
Looking closer at the current canard area up front, you can see that entire area recessed and opened with a cooling duct reminiscent from the 2005 GTR PROTO. daytime LED now sits in that opening. To me the cut out area looks deep behind the tape and curves upward to give the car a new body line in the front
It appears a side vent for rear brake and transaxle cooling could be present.
