"The GT-R is absolutely a supercar, only this incredible ride comes from Japan. Picking up where the legendary Skylines of the past left off, the Nissan GT-R delivers straight-line performance that can’t be beat by cars five times its price. When it comes to cornering, it is dexterous and light-footed. A near unfair advantage is found in the traction from its high tech all-wheel drive system that delivers astounding grip and predictability. The GT-R’s looks make it a standout in any performance showdown and any supercar lover will find plenty to respect. Should the power and capabilities of the GT-R come into question, just bring any challenger on. The proof of the GT-R's dominance will soon be found in the dust that the doubters will consume while chasing it."
—Description

The 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition - abbreviated as Nissan GT-R '12 - is an AWD supercar by Nissan featured in Forza Horizon and all subsequent Forza main series titles, as well as in Forza Motorsport 6: Apex.

Synopsis

The 2012 GT-R was the first facelift variant of the R35 GT-R, which included a major power raise to more than 500 hp (373 kW) and chassis optimisations. The Black Edition was the highest model trim of that year and included a red and black interior, darker six-spoke wheels, as well as leather Recaro seats.[1]

Another facelift for the GT-R was introduced with the 2017 Nissan GT-R.

Performance

The GT-R Black Edition features above average acceleration, requiring only 2.8 seconds for 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) and 7 seconds for 100 mph (161 km/h). It handles corners well, but may suffer from understeer due to a high weight.

Liberty Walk Upgrade

In Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Horizon 4, it may be upgraded using a Liberty Walk preset that raises its performance index to S1 895. It includes a number of handling upgrades, greatly improving its cornering abilities but hardly touching on straight-line performance.

Variants
