This past  weekend at the Nurburging Nissan held a European Press Event to debut the MY2012 ( 2013 US spec) GT-R.

Just 1 year the comprehensive updates of the DBA-R35, the GTR continues its evolution. Details from the event are still being gathered and we will keep you posted, but here is what is currently know:


- The  2013 GTR will  once  again feature  a  substantial  gain in HP on par with the current increase from last years model.   The final  number will be announced at the car's launch, but it was shown at the event to be at least  20hp so expect  550+ HP. In addtion to increased boost, revisions to the  intake and  exhaust have been made.

- Visually the  2013  remains the same  with  no  additional  color options

- Suspension and  Transmission  logic have been  tweaked

- Under body has been  changed to  improve  aero and cooling

- Co2 emissions have once again  been lowered

- Premium  Black Edition and Egoist will be offered  worldwide

- Official  Ring Time  Attack  attempt is expected   mid October

- The R35 life cycle is expected to  continue for 2 additional model years  

- In addition to these models a  "Track Edition" will be available  as RHD only to markets outside the US. This  GTR is the one we reported on earlier this week with   carbon parts  inspired  by Nissan Test  Driver Toshio Suzuki's  GTR  tuning  brand "Nordring ". It also  features  Dunlop Race slicks aswell as   Volk Racing wheels....

right now its almost impossible  to  get the current ones outside of  japan..... and the prices on them will be alot to swallow for most  buyers

for example at the current exchange rate the   carbon trunk and the  wing   are  about  $11K and   $4.5K   each

Damn, I can't belive there is another power bump.

I'm guessing its no more of a bump than you can get with the Cobb AP?

I want to see what the intake upgrades are.....

whats scary is that they say at LEAST 40 hp...im absolutely happy with Nissan. They are going for the jugular...going to be interesting to see how it would perform vs the PDK turbo.
Outside of that...wow.

I can't believe there is going to be another power bump.....especially such a big bump. The 13 will be running high 10's in stock trim.

MC....any idea if Nissan will allow the 12 owners to get the new intakes and exhaust and have a stock retune from Nissan to keep the warranty in place?  If not and this power bump is true, I'm adding after-market intakes, throwing a 90mm exhaust on and cobbing this bitch.  :)  I wanted to keep my warranty in place though.

just based on the way  nissan hasnt  been   retro fitting previous models i would say no...   the emphasis here   is on  constantly improving the latest model year  than  after the  purchase upgrades..

all this info is so new... lets   see exactly what  has been done   and go from there..

ive known a  HP increase was  coming for a while now... but i admit i am a little   surprised at  just how  substantial  this seems to be..... at the event  the  actual graph was said to have shown between  570 and  580... we could be looking at as much increase on 13 as there was from the 09 to the 12... which is almost  hard to  believe

Can the current turbo's handle that much power without being out of their efficiency range?

Revisions to the exhuast and intake are going to be made? Does that mean it might sound as agressive as something aftermarket?

Lets hope so!
If its running high 10's then running the 1/8 Mile will require a ROLL CAGE!!! At least at my local track.

na...   the car obviously  will still have  2 sets of cats and  the oem style mid pipe...so  i wouldnt expect alot of change in the sound department.. the new intake is to let more air into the engine  but no details on what the exhaust change exactly is
