Though only in its second model year, the Nissan GT-R has already gained legend status in the automotive world. The 2010 Nissan GT-R receives a minor tweaking, taking the stunning performance of the 2009 GT-R to another level. Improvements start under the hood with 5 hp more from the 3.8L twin-turbo V6 - now rated at 485 hp. Nissan engineers redesigned the Bilstein shocks and revised spring and damper rates, improving both cornering and ride quality. Increased rigidity in the brake lines improves both brake feel and the overall durability of the braking system. The Transmission Control Module for the rear-mounted dual-clutch transmission has also been reprogrammed, improving driveability and acceleration by optimizing clutch engagement. All of these improvements don't come cheap, however. The GT-R and GT-R Premium carry MSRP's of $80,790 and $83,040 respectively - a near $4,000 increase over the outgoing model.
