Nissan GTR Price: This week, Kenyans have been awed by a finely tuned Nissan GTR that performed what many people thought was a speed miracle.
A video of the Nissan GTR leaving a Subaru in dust has since gone viral, with thousands of shares across all social media channels. But the question most people have been asking is: who owns the ride?
Well, emerging reports say that the ride is owned by a fellow known as Williammm Kimm.
He is an Asian who lives and works in Kenya. The 2020 midrange GT-R Track Edition costs $145,540 (Sh. 14.5 million), while the top-spec Nissan GT-R Nismo starts at $210,740 (Sh. 21 million) without taxes.
Now that is settled, what exactly makes the GTR so powerful? Here’s what NISSAN says: Nissan challenged convention at every point of the Nissan GT-R’s development. Instead of a large, heavy engine thirsty for fuel, the Nissan GT-R is powered by an ideally sized, twin-turbocharged 3.8-L V6 that produces a prodigious 565 hp and equally immense 467 lb-ft of torque. Just as important as the engineering is the actual assembly, which is done by hand by a single master craftsman, whose signature you’ll find on a small but prominent plaque.
An IHI turbocharger is mounted on each bank of the engine. The exhaust manifolds, inspired by racing technology, have optimized turbo flange attachment points, which allow for easier servicing and potential tuning, without touching the exhaust manifold. To ensure there is no turbo lag as torque rises, high-precision electronic controls are employed.
A titanium exhaust helps ensure proper cooling from the engine’s massive output. Notoriously difficult to work with, each exhaust is hand-built by a master craftsman, and is specifically designed for an individual vehicle. A new “burnished” finish to the exhaust tip gives the perfect look – of a high-performance vehicle that’s been enjoyed to the fullest.
The cylinder block features a closed deck for strength. For added strength, a ladder frame structure was also adopted to give the crankshaft added support, important with the engine’s massive torque. Magnesium alloy was selected for the oil pan and rocker cover for its light weight and strength. Nissan GTR Price.
