From over a 3-month time period, they tested those three models in 1/4 scale size at the wind tunnel for nearly 300 times and got positive results for their further development. [270] The package is supported by a warranty and saves over 20kg (44lb). The U.S. official launch was seven months later on July 7, 2008, for the 2009 model year. [citation needed] And it was done by the German car magazine Auto Bild in a comparison test, beating a Porsche 911 (997) Turbo. Also, some test mules spied testing on snow in Japan. [14], Nissan handed over the mechanical and technical development of the GT-R to the chief engineer of the Skyline GT-R R34, Kazutoshi Mizuno (also known as Mr. GT-R). [239], On February 27, 2009, Nismo announced a partnership with British racing team Gigawave Motorsports to enter a GT-R in four races in the 2009 FIA GT Championship season. Ecutek also allows the driver to adjust launch control on the fly available with a wrap-around boost gauge that can read over 20 PSI. If you can't wait for a UK car some time next year then you'll need to personally import one. Nissan received more than 80 sketches from the respective design studios and 12 of them chosen by Nissan with the help of design director, Shiro Nakamura. The production planned to produce 100 units but 115 units were built.[102].

While criticized for not being offered with a manual transmission and interior quality, they nevertheless named it the 2009 Motor Trend Automobile of the Year. After 15 years of production, the GT-R has been discontinued in the European market and Australian market due to newer regulation changes. About the practicality of the car, the magazine states, "There's plenty of room for a big guy and a back seat that can be used by shorter folks on the occasional run to lunch. Officials said the production GT-R would be 80 to 90% based on this prototype. [186] In a first test with the 2011 facelifted GT-R model, Sport Auto recorded a lap time of 7:34 minutes on the Nrburgring with a standard GT-R driven by Horst von Saurma.[187]. According to Nissan, the record car was in standard specifications with standard Bridgestone tyres.
