Nissan Adding And Removing Features On 2009 GT-R

Written by tonks on December 10, 2008

We were disappointed to hear that Nissan will be dropping the launch control for the Nissan GT-R model. On the bright side though they will be adding on an additional five horsepower after giving it a few electronic tweaks. This will take it from 473 HP to 478 HP.

It will also be equipped with the Dunlop SP Sport 600 DSST tires. These are the same ones that were fitted onto the GT-R and helped it to reach its lap time of 7:29 around the ‘Ring. The Premium Edition GT-R will be given the rims in Gun Metal Grey and the Black Edition will be given the exact same wheels only in black.

One of the best changes that we are looking forward to is the interior color. For awhile Pearl White has been the color of choice. But who wants a car that seems a bit sterile? So now it is being replaced with a “deep” white known as Storm. We just hope that it is better and less boring.

If you want these new features you are going to have to wait a bit longer and pay £56,795. This is a 3.8% increase. For the Premium Edition you will add an extra £1,300 and for the Black Edition an extra £2,600. You won’t get your hands on the car until 2010.
