Like any job, being an auto journalist has its perks, and recently the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press held its annual Rocky Mountain Driving Experience, which included a day on a GT race track with some very awesome vehicles. One of those, and likely the star of the show, was the 2014 Nissan GT-R Premium.
The GT-R is the epitome of what a Japanese supercar should be. It’s beautiful, powerful, and exudes Nipponese excellence. It’s 3.8-liter V6 uses a direct overhead camshaft (DOHC) configuration with four valves per cylinder and sequential multi-point electronic fuel injection. This translates to a 9:1 compression ratio in a 95.5×88.4mm bore stroke. At near-maximum RPM, the Nissan GT-R churns out an amazing 545 horsepower and grumbles a beautiful mid-pitched exhaust note from its twin pipes.
