However, esoteric displays such as graphs showing brake-and-accelerator-pedal movements would be useful to those who in-car-video their lapping sessions.
Car and Driver
The GT-R also features a trick multifunction performance monitor that offers 11 different informational displays.
There's even a big stop watch on the screen controlled by a button on the steering wheel.
The GT-R features a leather-adorned cabin for four, PlayStation-inspired multifunction display, nav system, Bose audio, heated seats, and Bluetooth.
Two of the car's most highly touted features baffle me, though. One is the endlessly configurable instrument display, called-up via the nav screen.
The Truth About Cars
Just two options and two accessories are offered on the GT-R for 2010. There's a Cold Weather Package, Special Super Silver Paint, ultra-high-performance tires, and special floor mats.
The previous base model GT-R was eliminated for the 2011 model year, leaving only the Premium model, which gets an iPod interface, heated seats and an upgraded Bose audio system with Music Box hard-drive storage as standard equipment.
A hard-drive-based navigation system with voice recognition is also standard, as are XM NavTraffic and and NavWeather alerts. Almost all of the car's functions are controlled through the center-mounted 7-inch touchscreen display.
The GT-R’s navigation and gauges deserve special notice. The GT-R’s display allows users to customize those screens, and the automaker even hired designers who worked on the Sony PlayStation's Gran Turismo game to design the interface.Overall, the GT-R offers a decent equipment list, with some creature comforts that won't make this coupe feel so edgy if you don't want it to.
Although toys and comforts aren't the point of the 2011 Nissan GT-R, it has plenty of them.
