The publication claims that the Nissan GT-R will finally enter India on November 9, 2016.

Nissan had first introduced India to the GT-R at the 2016 Auto Expo. However, a month later at the 2016 New York Auto Show, Nissan unveiled the 2017 model year update to the GT-R which bought in a whole host of updates to the 9-year old supercar. It is this updated car that will finally mark the official entry of the GT-R into India.

Powering the GT-R is a 3.8-litre twin turbocharged V6 engine that pushes out 562bhp and 637Nm of torque. Each of the 3.8-litre V6 twin-turbo engines are built by only five master craftsmen who are given the title Takumi.

Design wise, the 2017 GT-R features Nissan's V-motion grille up front along with a redesigned bumper with angular air intakes.

Inside, Nissan has kicked out the old fiddly, button mad interior for much more cleaner and plusher version.

There is a new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system which is linked to a 11-speaker audio system from Bose.

The interior features quite a bit of leather which can be specified in numerous colour option depending on the owner's tastes. Owners can also opt for Recaro race seats up front.
