Nissan GT-R interior
For the GT-R, Nissan incorporated a new type of transaxle four-wheel drive system in which it placed the dual-clutch transmission and transfer case at the back of the car instead of up front. The design has enabled a better weight distribution throughout the car that will result in a better ride, according to Nissan.
The Nissan GT-R also has three different modes for its dual clutch six-speed transmission: normal, snow and "R," a racing mode that allows the driver to shift quickly at high speeds. Priced at about 7.8 million yen ($68,000), the car is expected to be available in December 2006 in Japan and June 2009 in the U.S.
