Along with a new look, new wheels and new colors, the 2012 Nissan GT-R coupe gets a new Black Edition trim with unique black and red Recaro sport seats, a black headliner and black 6-spoke RAYS lightweight alloy wheels. Horsepower jumps from 485 to 530, while city/highway fuel economy moves from 15/21 to 16/23
Nissan is known for its innovative electric cars and sporty but affordable family sedans, but the iconic GT-R supercoupe brings the brand unrivaled cache, especially among younger performance fans. Not just some generic coupe with a big engine, the GT-R is a bona fide supercar, engineered from the ground up to deliver an adrenaline rush on par with the fastest Porsche 911 or Audi R8. Of course, the GT-R's $100,000 price tag puts it well out of reach of the numerous enthusiasts and video gamers who have loved this car's predecessor – the Skyline GT-R – for over two decades. But that's the stuff of dreams.
