As reported, Nissan has just unveiled the 2015 Nissan GT-R for the Japanese market complete with a selection of refinements which are bound to trickle down into GT-Rs sold around the world. As a matter of fact, it is believed that all the updates of the 2015 GT-R for Japan will come standard with the 2016 model year GT-R in the United States.

From a suspension standpoint, the 2015 Nissan GT-R adopts revised dampers with the ECU being tweaked to provide better cornering stability and improved steering feel. Elsewhere, new Dunlop run-flat tyres have been fitted which will improve ride quality as well as straight line and rough surface stability.

Further changes include tweaks to the Brembo brakes to provide better feel and reduced noise while the powertrain management systems and flywheel-housing bearings have been modified to again reduce noise but to also provide smoother operation. Final changes include improved sound deadening with a different trunk carpet while the GT-R Premium now adopts optional Rays wheels.

Changes have also been made to the 2015 Nissan GT-R Track Edition which is tuned by Nismo. It now includes flared front fenders, revised suspension settings, forged Rays wheels and stickier Dunlop rubber.
