2010 Nissan GT-R gets 5 more horsepower, starts at $81,790

Nissan today unveiled the official details and pricing info on the new 2010 Nissan GT-R. Nissan says that the 2010 GT-R features “five additional horsepower, a revised suspension, updated wheel finishes and standard front seat- and roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags.”

The GT-R’s 3.8L twin-turbo V6 now produces 485-hp (up from 480-hp). The 6-speed, dual-clutch transmission receives a new “Transmission Control Module (TCM) programming designed to optimize clutch engagement for improved drivability, and improve vehicle acceleration with the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) on (activated)”.

The braking system has also been upgraded with more rigid brake lines and the calipers now feature both, the Brembo and Nissan logos. The suspension has been retuned with redesigned Bilstein shocks with a new valve body design and revised spring and damper rates. The 2010 Nissan GT-R is also equipped with a darker smoke-finished 20-inch RAYS aluminum alloy-wheels and a “near-black” metallic finish on the Premium model.

Pricing for the 2010 Nissan GT-R starts at $81,790 and $84,040 for the GT-R Premium model (prices include a $1,000 destination and handling charge). For 2010, Nissan is also offering a new Pearl White color while the popular Super Silver color gets a polished front bumper. Buyers can also opt for the Cold Weather Package at no charge. The special Super Silver Paint costs an additional $3000, while the iPod and GT-R floormats go for $400 and $280 respectively.

Unfortunately Nissan did not release any images of the 2010 Nissan GT-R, so you’ll have to deal with the 2009 Nissan GT-R gallery.
