The current R35-generation Nissan GT-R has been with us since late 2007, and with a replacement reportedly a few years away, Nissan has to make the most of what it's got now. That's why the GT-R got a significant facelift for the 2017 model year. What's new on the 2017? Allow Hiroshi Tamura, chief product specialist for the GT-R, to give you a rundown.

Tamura-san spent a few minutes walking Road & Track around his new baby at the New York Auto Show, and indulged our Gran Turismo fantasies with an R34 Skyline GT-R M-Spec Nür that belongs to the Nissan museum. 

Tamura-san's job is to coordinate between engineers, designers and bean counters to bring a car into life. He also that'd been detuned to 600 horsepower, so his car guy credentials are very much in order.

He's the perfect guy to talk to about anything GT-R, so sit back and enjoy.
