New Nissan GT-R to debut in 2013

It seems that the Japanese people from Nissan are preparing the 2013 model year GT-R, a model which is expected to receive some noteworthy improvements over the outgoing model. If Nissan fitted the 2010 GT-R with a reworked 3.8-liter V6 developing 530 horsepower instead of 485 horses produced by the previous model, the 2013 Nissan GT-R is rumored to get a power boost from 530HP to 570HP.
