Nissan's 2012 GT-R now comes with more power (+20 bhp to 542 bhp) and a *slight* improvement in consumption (now 24 mpg combined), but retains the same badass appeal as the ultimate of supercar-slayers. Engine response and torque at mid and low-speeds, and power at high revolutions, has been significantly improved, mainly due to: - Improved intake efficiency - Better air flow resistance, which has been reduced by the addition of an intake manifold fitted to the head of each unit and the use of resin in the enlarged air intake duct for the intercooler. - Improved exhaust emissions efficiency and enhanced control. Reduced air flow resistance thanks to a more compact under floor catalyser which improves emissions efficiency and reduces weight. - Improved exhaust valve cooling performance by the adoption of a newly-designed metallic sodium-filled valve. At the same time, valve control timing, the air mixture ratio and ignition timing have been improved.
