It looks like Nissan isn't quite finished with the current generation GT-R, their engineers continue to perfect the Japanese supercar and for 2017 "Godzilla" gets a fresh new look and even more power. While the styling is still familiar, the car's front end gets their new "V-Motion" grille that is finished in matte chrome and enlarged for better engine cooling.

It also gets a brand new hood that keeps the car stable at high speed and a new spoiler lip and front bumpers enhance downforce. The car's side sills have been updated for improved aerodynamics and the rear of the car gets an aggressive new look.

The 3.8L V6 gets a nice little boost, upping the engine power to a total of 565 horses and 467 lb-ft of torque. The interior gets a more premium update with an all new dashboard featuring an instrument panel wrapped in Nappa leather while the rest of the cabin can be spec'd in a variety of semi-aniline leather options in the GT-R's Premium Edition trim. Look for the 2017 GT-R to hit showrooms later this summer.
