i don't think those are the actual photos, i have heard that there are two air inlets to the side of the large mouth up front.

They're actual photos.

2009-2011


2012


The spy shots had camo over the front fascia because of the LEDs up front.

Official pictures, but still no word on horsepower or performance numbers...

GT-R facelift update.
Am I getting older? Time must be going faster. It has been near 3-years since the launch sale of the GT-R. Model year 2011 received a "facelift" but that is probably inadequate, because visually it differs nothing from the current car.

Effort has been spent on improving the performance and handling of the car. Increase of power output to 530 hp (from 485 hp) and torque to 451 lb-ft (from 434 lb-ft). Accomplished by increasing turbo boost pressure, revising valve timing and using larger diameter intake manifolds and exhaust.

Wider torque curve:
2008:
Power
485 hp / 6400 rpm
Torque
434 lbft / 3200-5200 rpm

2011:
530 hp / 6400 rpm
451 lbft / 3200-6000 rpm

Nissan engineers somehow managed to lower its coefficient of drag from 0.27 to merely 0.26, while increasing its downforce by 10 percent. The chassis is made slightly stiffer thanks to a front suspension tower strut made of carbon composites and aluminum honeycomb, which is installed at the firewall to strengthen the structure. Along with harder springs, dampers and anti-roll bars to improve grip.

All of this, and more, and I just can't seem to care. It's to flame for me, with its silly computer display inside. Funny thing is, this makes me want a GT3 or 911 Turbo even more.

Now it's time to get back the Nurburgring, but please Nissan no funny games this time.

I like those exhaust tips and that color is killer.

 Huh?

Also: GT-Rs are fat pigs. Which serves to make their speed even more amazing. The mind boggles at all the tech packed under that oversized shell.
