Updated Nissan GT-R Bound for New York

Final refresh before the next-gen car arrives?

Nissan has released a teaser for a new GT-R that will debut at the 2016 New York auto show. However, the automaker didn't disclose any information regarding what's in store for Godzilla or whether the car will receive something major for the next model year.

Based on what's shown in the teaser, nothing seems to have drastically changed on the GT-R, indicating that this may just be a refresh of the current car. Only the rear end of the car is shown and right away the taillights look the same as the standard GT-R.

Since its debut for the 2009 model year, the GT-R has undergone many refreshes, which included two power bumps that took it from 485 to 545 hp and from 434 lb-ft to 463 lb-ft of torque. In addition, the car also received many suspension modifications throughout the years to make it handle better. The most powerful variant so far is the GT-R Nismo, which boasts 600 hp and 481 lb-ft, additional front and rear brake cooling ducts, a suspension setup tuned by Nismo, a carbon fiber trunk lid, and a full aerodynamic package with a fixed rear wing. The GT-R Nismo is also available with a titanium exhaust system to lower the car's weight even more.

We'll find out what updates are in store for the GT-R at Nissan's New York press conference on March 23.
