Nissan's supercar killer is getting another series of upgrades with the debut of the 2017 Nismo. The flagship version of their 600-hp coupe receives a new front end design that features a large "V-motion" grille that helps it take in more air. The hood has also been upgraded with further reinforcement to reduce deformation at high speed to keep its aerodynamic shape as it rockets down the asphalt. 

With its newly stiffened body, Nissan added updated shocks, springs, and stabilizers to enhance handling and which has allowed the car to record improved slalom times and cornering performance. It also gets an updated interior with Alcantara suede through the car and the center stack gets refined with a cleaner, more simplified layout. That sits alongside a larger 8-inch touchscreen and their new Display Command control.
