Production of the European version of the Nissan GT-R began this month at Nissan’s Tochigi plant in Japan. There have been a few modifications made to the car before its release onto European markets. One change is that the car will now feature the Dunlop SP Sport 600 DSST tyres as original equipment.
According to Nissan, the tyre was developed with the GT-R in mind. It displays both grip and durability, which was demonstrated during recent trials at the Nürburgring circuit, where it lapped in less than 7.5 minutes.
The Nissan GT-R, with its 3.8 litre V6 twin turbo engine, will be delivered into Europe in April of next year, when it will sell for £56,795. Nissan has already received orders for 2500 cars across Europe.
