On the other hand, R35 begins to show its age. The VR38DETT takes care of 600 ponies in NISMO, while the six-stage DCT could be better. Acura NSX reaches up to nine forward ratios, while Ford has a 10-speed torque converter. The question is when will R36 be introduced and what can we expect from Nissan?
When he spoke to Hiroshi Tamura at the New York Motor Show, Motor1.com received some information in this regard. When asked about hybridization, the main product specialist GT-R and NISMO said no. "Ninety-nine percent of customers" I do not want such a thing, but we are not surprised.
The V6 double turbine and R35 architecture are difficult to hybridize and there is another reason why Nissan does not want to hybridize to the GT-R. More than in place, the GT-R platform has been redesigned from the ground up "Every 20 Years" according to Hiroshima Tamura.
From the R32 after the R33 and R34 series, the GT-R used much of the same platform that Nissan set out in 1989. The R35 is 12 years old, and what it means for the R36 is obvious. "Tamura reminded us that the R37 should debut at least 2027," so get ready for a long, long wait.
Although the GT-R failed to sell, Tamura is pleased with the volume of the sports coupe. Sales in 2008 in the United States exceeded 1,730 examples and dropped to 538 last year. For the European continent, do it in 2009 and 816 last year, 1,987.
"Adding a gasoline-powered hybrid device like the Acura NSX said tamura could push the GT-R around $ 200,000." In this price situation, potential customers would think twice before spending their money on Nissan. After all, Acura NSX sells for $ 157,500 with the exception of $ 1,800 for the target fee.
