improved aerodynamics and lightweight carbon parts New 2020 GT-R NISMO’s

Improved aerodynamics with new lightweight carbon fiber parts and new front fender vents allow for better handling and improved performance

YOKOHAMA, Japan (June 17, 2020) – The 2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO continues to be all about total balance, with improved carbon fiber application to reduce weight, increase downforce and enhance aerodynamics – all providing a faster and more exciting drive. From race-proven turbochargers, improved gearbox shift control, lighter components and reduced overall mass to upgrades to the brakes, wheels and tires, every component contributes to a 2.5-second reduction in lap time around Nissan’s development track.

The improved aerodynamics of the 2020 GT-R NISMO is due to its new lightweight carbon fiber parts and new front fender vents. The carbon fiber fender vents feature carefully designed fins that allow for optimal airflow, cooling hot air from the engine and providing exceptional downforce to the front tires, reducing drag coefficient.

Other new carbon fiber parts include the hood, roof, side sill covers, and trunk and rear spoiler, resulting in a total weight savings of 10.5 kilograms. The biggest contributor comes from a change in materials used in the brake rotors themselves to a carbon and silicon carbide structure, allowing for a 16.3 kilogram drop in unsprung weight of the car.
