For the nth consecutive year the GT-R continues to be present in the market with the same shape as it came out nine of ten years ago, and it’s the same story with its high performance variant. This is the new 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo and it’s pretty much identical to the last year’s model.
Of course, there are a few changes here and there as featured on the latest iteration of the GT-R, but they are not substantial enough to make the car look or feel new. There is the fancy new bumper, enlarged dark chrome V-motion grille, and some other bits and bobs here and there to make the thing more aero dynamic.
The same goes for the interior. The 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo gains a refreshed interior with redesigned dashboard, steering wheel and center armrest are covered with Alcantara, a new 8” display in the dashboard, and a new Display command control. Despite all of this, the cabin still looks as it a decade ago which is not particularly exciting.
In fact, the whole GT-R thing has ceased to be exciting long ago. Sure, the latest Nismo model has 600 horsepower and they have refined the chassis with stuff like Bilstein DampTronic driver-adjustable system to such an extent, it is now capable of going through a slalom course 2 percent quicker than the previous model. But it’s not really desirable anymore. You know what, we’re going to stop writing about it right now.
