2009 Chicago Auto Show
11 February 2009:2009 NISSAN GT-R: Nissan launched the new GT-R in the U.S.A. as an ?ultimate supercar for anyone, anywhere, at anytime.? Billed as a multi-dimensional performance machine, the GT-R?s newly developed midship package offers the world?s first application of an independent transaxle 4-wheel-drive system. Aerodynamic-shaped body combines steel, carbon fiber and aluminum panels for stiffness and lightness. Beneath the hood is the ?VR38,? a new 3.8-litre twin turbo V-6 engine that produces 470 horsepower. Depositing the 360 lb ft of torque to the ground is the 6-speed dual clutch transmission, with three modes: Normal (for maximum efficiency), Snow (for shifting on slippery surfaces), and R mode (for maximum performance with fastest shifts). Projected 0-to-60 miles per hour times is in the sub-4.0 second range. Large, 4-passenger cockpit contains sculpted performance bucket seats, a large center-mounted tachometer and specially designed Bose sound system.. The Chicago Auto Show is a charity event of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) and is held annually at McCormick Place in Chicago Illinois.
