Bandar Seri Begawan - The Nissan GT-R has not reached its limit of development as there is still room for future improvements. Currently, the development of the Nissan GT-R is at 90 per cent and there is another 10 per cent of further improvement to be made on the supercar.
This was revealed by Mr Kazutoshi Mizuno who is known as the father of Nissan GT-R, during an interview yesterday at the MY12 GT-R, Test Drive Session and meet and greet the famed creator of GT-R at The Empire Hotel & Country Club.
However, he said, "Car progress is not just on design as many other functions are needed and we need to harmonise the many functions. Balance and harmony are important. More development on GT-R performance will need more development in connecting companies."
When asked if it was necessary to have a supercar on the road, he answered, "Supercars are an excitement.
"It gives the 'Zen' of life to some people. Everyday people are working and doing their daily task, they can look forward to an exciting drive in the GT-R.
"The Nissan GT-R will give people the power for life. Almost all GT-R customers understand the power of the GT-R which gives them the excitement."
On the GT-R event that was hosted by Boustead Sdn Bhd, the main distributor of Nissan in Brunei, he commented, "It's a smoothly organised event. However the weather is a bit too hot for me. The people here have a balanced lifestyle, who enjoy work and also supercars, which is unlike Japan. I hope that I can come back to Brunei again in the future."
During a briefing, the father of Nissan GT-R said, "I wanted to develop a supercar that anyone can enjoy speed anywhere, anytime. So GT-R was born, which has created a new niche market in the supercar segment for affordability."
He also mentioned that the new MY13, which will be launched soon in Brunei, has an improved time of reaching over 300 km/hr.
The new engine of the MY13 incorporates high-output injectors that control fuel injection more precisely, improve mid-range engine response and acceleration at higher rpms.
Specially-developed orifice to the relief valve has been added to the turbocharger bypass; these suppress the rapid decrease of the forced injection pressure, helping to sustain acceleration at high rpms.--Courtesy of Borneo Bulletin
