2017 Nissan GT-R Rolls Into Angel Stadium

The new 2017 Nissan GT-R is making its West Coast and public debut. What other Nissan will performance fans see for the first time?

The new 2017 Nissan GT-R rolls into California and makes its West Coast and public premiere today. It’s all part of the 2016 Z-Bash taking place today at Angel Stadium. The Z-Bash promises to be one of the largest gatherings of Nissan performance cars this year. The event will bring in lots of Nissan performance fans who will be showing off their Datsun 510s, Datsun Roadsters, Z cars and GT-Rs of all ages and modifications.

2017 GT-R gets improvements

Performance fans will get to see the all-new 2017 Nissan GT-R for the first time as they gather in the Angel Stadium parking lot in Anaheim, Calif. The GT-R gets a new look inside and out, as well as major driving and performance enhancements for 2017.

The 2017 GT-R gets the most significant changes to the car since its debut in 2007. It gets a new front grille, hood and other upgrades for better airflow management and improved stiffening for high speed, performance driving. The hand-built Godzilla V6 powerplant gets a 20 horsepower increase to 565 hp. The boost brings a broader, more useful torque band for better acceleration and response at speed.

Nissan TITAN XD 5.6-liter Endurance V8 makes West Coast debut

Z-Bash attendees will also get to see the West Coast debut of the all-new TITAN XD 5.6-liter Endurance V8 gasoline model with 390 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. The new powerplant joins the current TITAN XD Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel model. Admission to Z-Bash is free for both car show participants and spectators. The show open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m at Angel Stadium today.

The new 2017 Nissan GT-R and TITAN XD appearances are part of Nissan’s DNA Garage live event tour, which will also include stops at Nissan JAM on Sunday, June 12th; the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (Aug. 18 – 21); and the 12th annual Japanese Classic Car Show (Sept. 24).
