Nissan displayed three vehicles at this year's Geneva International Motor Show. The cars are testimony to Nissan's commitment to performance, design, innovation and technology.
The highly anticipated Nissan GT-R provides exceptional performance due to its new 3.8 V6 twin-turbo engine, producing 353kW (480PS) and 588Nm. With a driver adjustable suspension, gearbox and stability control settings, the GT-R can be aligned to a preferred style of driving. This adaptability restates the pivotal philosophy behind the GT-R. An interesting insight into the sporting credentials of the GT-R is the fact that it ran a lap Nurburgring circuit in Germany, in 7m38s.
The GT-R will be available starting March 2009.

Murano will be Nissan's first model in the European range. It will also carry the company's Scratch Shield Paint that protects the exterior from scratches occurring in everyday life. The paint repairs the marks, with the credit going to a newly developed highly elastic resin.
The sales of the new Murano will begin in Europe in October.
