Overseas sources are claiming that Nissan is currently working on a sedan version of the acclaimed GT-R coupe.
With a stretch to the wheelbase the all-wheel drive chassis will lend itself well as a competitor to the Mercedes-Benz CLS, or the upcoming Audi A7 and Porsche Panamera.
The most surprising news is that the twin-turbo 3.8L V6 will make way for the 5.0L V8 that currently sits in the Infiniti FX50 SUV. Sources claim that the V8 will be tuned to approximately 313kW, a significant power hike to the 287kW in the FX50. In comparison the GT-R coupe generates 353kW from its super high-tech engine.
However, Australian’s shouldn’t get too excited about handing over their cash as the GT-R sedan will likely only sell under the Infiniti brand, which Nissan Australia currently has no plans to bring down under.
