2012 Nissan GT-R leaked image

Will be unveiled later his year

After months of spy photographs, the 2012 Nissan GT-R has been unmasked thanks to this leaked image.

As you can see, styling changes are minor but include LED daytime running lights, lighter wheels, a modified grille, a revised rear diffuser (which reportedly increases downforce by 10%), and two new color choices: Aurora Flare Blue Pearl and Nebula Opal Black.

Under the hood, we can expect some minor modifications which should enable the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine to produce more than 485 hp (492 PS / 362 kW) and 434 lb-ft (588 Nm) of torque.

The car is expected to be unveiled later this year, so stay tuned to WCF for continuing coverage.

Also all the body work takes the already low .27 cd down to .26. There is so many changes to this model that nissan had to change the chassis name.

Wait until all the specs come out, the base gt-r will have 520ps at 1710kg, even the new wheels are 3kgs lighter, the chassis has also been worked and the transmission and apparently it will have rear wheel drive option, Nissan claim its set a new benchmark above the last gt-r. should be good to say the least.

The extra bumper swipe with DRLs don't look great, but I'm sure they're there for a purpose. The wheels are a bit busy, but the new blue looks good on it. Like Bay Side Blue, but more upmarket-looking.

Still the same GT-R I know and love. Thank God they haven't fiddled about with it much.
