With the 2012 Nissan GT-R, Mizuno-san has lived up to his promise with the 2012 Nissan GT-R.
2012 Nissan GT-R is the beginning of a new GT-R Black Edition, bringing a plus of power, some style changes and an improved interior. The performance of the engine has also improved, rising by 45 HP compared to the last year model and the already impressive brakes were also a little bit enlarged. Another thing to notice is the new wheels, seats and interior colors.
