Japanese magazine leak says yes
Facebook user 7tune snapped a image of a Japanese magazine claiming to have photos of the R36 Nissan GT-R.
The poster, whom we assume can go through Japanese, says the next GT-R will have a hybrid powertrain like the McLaren P1 and Ferrari LeFerrari. He also says it will carry a new edition of the company’;s twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 making 580 hp.
On top of that, the GT-R will get a KERS-style regenerative technology for an added 250 or so hp, resulting in more than 800 hp total.
That will be great for, according to the translator, a 2.7-2nd -62 mph time, with a top pace near 211 mph.
It need to be priced amongst $ 120,000 and $ 150,000, which would make sense contemplating present GT-R pricing.
Lending credence to the pic, Australia’;s The Motor Report, wrote a story late last year claiming Nissan trademarked the phrase “R-Hybrid,” which would sit properly on the rear of that purple GT-R.
We’;ve sent word to Nissan, but we don’;t assume significantly back. They normally will not comment on these kinds of things.
