The newly designed GT-R has stayed true to its iconic features and kept the rear circular light clusters, changing up the body styling by extending the sides to improve airflow away from the rear bumper, while creating a wider rear bodywork, providing a more aggressive look. The Japanese engineers have created a good looking car with presence on the road, the GT-R exterior dimensions when on the road are:
- Height 1370mm
- Length 4670mm
- Width 1895mm
Nissan’s engineers have also altered the exhaust by adding the titanium system that was developed for the GT-R Nismo. Its redesign has enabled a driver-activated open value system, providing quiet engine noises at low speeds and can increase when wanted.
The most noticeable change is the front, Nissan has added their latest design signature the ‘V-Motion’ grill and enlarged its area creating increased engine cooling. You’ll see the front bumper has had a design overhaul, providing a new front bumper and splitter that is all about aerodynamics. As you work your way around to the side of this car you will notice another redesign across the side skirts as well as the GT-R’s C-pillars, and not forgetting the new 20inch Y-spoke alloy wheels. All these alterations to the bodywork are for one reason, it's all about reducing drag, improving airflow and cooling to this high performance Nissan.
To complement the effort gone into the body styling and to make this car look as good as possible when parked or moving down the road at speed. The Japanese manufacturer has picked out the best colours to wrap this amazing car in, they’ve also added in a new colour especially for the MY17:
- New - Katsure Orange
- Storm White
- Pearl Black
- Gun Metallic
- Daytona Blue
- Ultimate Silver
- Vibrant Red

Watch how the MY17 model handles around the track and listen to those engine notes. You'll see why the GT-R is best in its class and some.
When you first think about a Nissan GT-R you may not think luxury, but you’ll be mistaken. This newly designed model is lavished with luxury materials and feature throughout its interior. You’ll find the dashboard and instrument panel are covered with high-end leather. While the dashboard has gone through a full redesign. This was to improve the layout and simplify what the driver had in front of him, this has reduced the number of switches from 27 in the MY16 GT-R to a simple 11. The gear shift has also been simplified, you are now shifting through gears via paddles located on the steering wheel, making life easy when turning corners and changing down gears.
For such a driver’s car you would expect the interior to be a little noise, once again this supercar has become even more refined. The noise is reduced by adding improved sound deadening as well as an acoustic windscreen, making the cabin very quiet. This has improved the interior comfort making this car a joy to drive long distance.
MY17 is available with several interior grade options, you have the Pure grade which features black cloth and Alcantara seats. Then you have the Recaro interior that features black and red Recaro seats and a matching interior. And finally you have the Prestige Grade which features high quality leather, this is available in 4 colours: black, tan, ivory and red.

Nissan Gt-r 2Dr V6 Recaro
After owning my Ford Focus ST Turbo for four years, I thought it was time to change my car. I
contacted West Way Manchester enquiring about a used vehicle, but ended up part exchanging my old car and buying a new Nissan GT-R 550 Recaro in Daytona Blue as I have always been attracted to the GT-R brand. What I like most about the car is that it has many characteristics and easily adapts to where and when I’m driving, meaning it easily suits my lifestyle – one day I can be driving through town at 30mph, the next I can be on a race track, in R mode transmission, showing off brutal acceleration and brilliant speeds. There is nothing impractical about the GT-R and it is genuinely an everyday supercar. It is comfortable with supportive, electrically adjustable seats, there is plenty of room in the boot for suitcases and shopping, and it has proven very reliable, which is impressive for a car with this level of power and performance. The fuel economy is similar to my previous car. There are two functions which have surprised me with the GT-R; the exhilaration of the launch control facility and the in-car satellite navigation system is the best I’ve used, it even gives additional information including distance to the next two service stations when driving on the motorway. The car could do with a slightly throatier, more prominent exhaust note at times, however when I decide to open up the taps a little, the engine is very eager and has a very unique sound. I would not hesitate to use West Way again in the future, the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and they kept in contact with me everyday until I picked the car up.
