Nissan has revealed its new GT-R to a private audience at the Paris motor show.
The car, set to go into production in 2012, was only shown to selected VIPs.
The car was spotted undisguised at a very wet and foggy Nürburgring, earlier this week and the spy pictures revealed the addition of new LED lights at the front and revised styling to front and rear bumper designs.
The GT-R is also understood to have undergone a rigorous weight-saving programme to ensure the latest model tips the scales at 30 kilos lighter than the current car.
Thanks to modified turbos, oil cooler and exhaust system, the GT-R’s twin-turbo V6 now pumps out 506bhp at 6400rpm and produces 448lb ft of torque between 3200 and 5200rpm.
There are also tweaked gear ratios, while completing the changes are revised spring rates and rear suspension geometry – which should help deliver a more compliant ride with sharper handling.
