Don’t try this at home…This is what happens when Nissan clevery upgrade a track edition GT-R supercar as a Pizz-R delivery vehicle and then hand the keys to racing driver Ricardo Sanchez with interesting results.
This was the old model GT-R and here is the chassis specification….
The suspension was fine-tuned to reduced load fluctuation between the four wheels, giving better stability and more consistent grip.
More constant tyre contact is achieved by optimized electronic control of the shock-absorber valves, as well as modified front stabiliser spring rates and updated bush link. The tuning of these parts, which makes best use of the suspension strokes and enhances road-holding capability, gives a poised, confident ride and outstanding traction on rough roads.
With minute vibrations and road noise reduced, a relaxing, comfortable ride is assured. An additional benefit is improved straight-line stability, with fewer small steering corrections needed to maintain the correct trajectory during highway driving.
The upgraded GT-R is now fitted as standard with Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT tyres, for outstanding road-holding and precise response in all conditions thanks to stiffer sidewalls which reduce deformation, improving steering response under hard cornering. At the front, their specification is: 255/40ZRF20(97Y) and at the rear: 285/35ZRF20(100Y)
The braking calibration has been retuned for a more firm, linear response at everyday speeds, making smooth braking more intuitive, generating greater confidence, particularly in wet conditions.
The GT-R’s steering has been fine-tuned to reduce the effort required for in-town manoeuvers, while maintaining its exceptional feedback during high-speed driving. The combination of retuned suspension and exceptional steering feel give outstanding confidence at high speed.
So the new one is even better, check out the website in the next few days and the next magazine for the full lowdown on the 2017 GT-R the best real world supercar, in the world.
