The Nissan GT-R will receive a raft of updates for the 2013 model year, aimed at improving engine response, high-speed stability and ride. The car has been unveiled to the public at today's LA motor show.
The 542bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbo powerplant features new injectors and a new relief valve has been fitted to the turbocharger to suppress the loss of boost. Both are said to improve engine response.
A new oil pan baffle helps to maintain pressure and reduce friction.
Modifications have been made to the front dampers, springs and anti-roll bar, lowering the car’s centre of gravity. Additionally, cam bolts have been installed on the front suspension in the pursuit of camber accuracy and stability during hard cornering.

Nissan says the changes have been employed following lessons learned from the firm’s outing at the Nürburgring 24-hour race.
