Bruhl, 12. February 2008 – with three european premieres, nissan comes to the automotive salon after geneva: the super sports car gt-r, the zero-emissions car pivo and the overworked suv murano.
New gt-r from 2009
At the heart of the interest was allowed to stand the super sports car gt-r. The vehicle is powered by a newly developed 3.8-liter twinturbo-v6 with 480 hp power and 588 newton meter torque. The force is distributed over a four-wheel system and a double-clutch transmission arranged in transaxle construction with manual switching possibility to all four raders. The driver can adjust the steamer characteristic, the switching behavior of the gearbox and the settings of the stability control the external driving conditions and the personal preferences. The sale of nissan gt-r starts in marz 2009. The price will not be announced at the geneva salon.
Murano with scratch protection
Despite some changes on the aub design, the second model generation of the murano is to be recognized at first sight as such. Inside, the new model offers the main passengers of high travel comfort, the manufacturer. The well-known 3.5-liter v6 from the vq series serves as a drive. The engine now develops 265 instead of 234 hp.
It becomes more interesting under and on the sheet: on the one hand, nissan wants to reduce the friction losses of the so-called xtronic cvt transmission by 20 percent and have optimized the response. And as the first vehicle of the european model range, the new murano is also relevant with the painting "scratch shield paint". This is based on newly developed high elastic artificial resins, which should preserve the lower layers of painting against damage. The sale of the new murano in europe begins in october 2008. The current model costs 46.740 euros. How much more expensive the new model becomes, nissan has not yet communicated.
