2014 Nissan GT-R

It is fitting to greet the 2014 Nissan GT-R the same way Captain Jack Sparrow greeted the Kraken in Pirates of the Caribbean: "'Allo, beastie." It's a matter of very minor tune-up for the monster, though, the 2014 GT-R moving things on by just couple of degrees or so.

Performance responsiveness has been finessed with new fuel injectors and a new oil baffle pan, and each hand-built engine gets a plaque with the builder's name. Nissan says the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 for 2014 gets injected with 15 more horsepower and 15 more pound-feet of torque, but the 545 hp and 463 lb-ft are the same as the 2013 model listed on Nissan's web site. Compared to 2012, however, both numbers are up by 15.

It's love-it-or-else looks are unchanged, but inside, the Premium model gets revised color and stitching; the Black Edition gets new accents and the option of a Premium Interior Package with Red Amber color semi-aniline leather. Nissan hasn't mentioned any price increases – the 2013 models came in at CAD$107,600 for the Premium and CAD$113,980 for the Black Edition.

It hits dealerships in January of next year. It's in our gallery of high-res photos right now.
