    Default 2012 Nissan GT-R Leaks - Special RWD Mode included

    http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...-rwd-mode.html



    The 2012 Nissan GTR is getting more than just cosmetic changes. According to the NAGTROC, the 2012 variant of Godzilla will get a revised chassis and suspension along with a “RWD mode”.
    The front strut towers have been stiffened, for a more rigid chassis, while the brake rotors are 10mm larger up front. New spring rates, dampers and caster settings will help the handling, along with lighter, forged Rays Engineering wheels. A new tire package from Dunlop will help transfer all that power and grip to the pavement, while an option for Recaro seats (from the Spec-V model) will help keep you in place.
    The most interesting option is the 2WD mode, which can turn the car into a rear-drive only machine. The 2wd mode can be activated by pressing the “fuel save” switch for more than 4 seconds, but somehow, we have a feeling that economy will not be the main objective of this kind of driving.

    Several photos and a smattering of details about the 2012 Nissan GT-R have leaked online, with the latest selection of details about the mild updates to the 2012 model coming to us via GT-RBlog.

    Most noticeable on the 2012 GT-R is a modified front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights. In total, the sleeker bodywork results in a coefficient of drag (Cd) that drops from 0.272 to 0.268. At the same time, downforce has also been improved by 10 percent thanks to a new rear diffuser.

    But the best upgrade is easily the new set of Rays wheels, which cut a total of 26.4 lbs of weight from the car where it’s most important. Reportedly the new rollers will be offered in both a Hyper Blue Black finish and Hyper Titanium.

    Two new paint colors will also be offered, with a stunning Aurora Flare Blue Pearl, as well as another color known as Nebula Opal Black.

    A slight price hike is also included for 2012, with an extra 80,000 yen bringing the 2012 GT-R’s sticker price to 8,694,000 yen in Japan. U.S. pricing is not yet known.

    I think they can call it whatever they want tho.
