It looks like finally we have the launch date of the much-awaited supercar the GT-R in India. The emerging reports suggest that the Japanese car-maker Nissan's iconic supercar, the GT-R will be launched in the country on November 9.

The company has already opened the pre-bookings window of the GT-R in India in September and the supercar is open for bookings for a down-payment of Rs 25 lakh. The new Nissan GT-R is expected to get a price tag of around Rs 2 crore in India.

Previous reports had said that the first batch of the GT-R allotted for the Indian market has already been sold out and the model has started reaching the Indian shores.

At the heart of the supercar is a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that develops 565bhp at 6,400rpm and 633Nm of peak torque. This combination propels the car from 0-100 kmph in less than 3 seconds. Each engine of the GT-R is assembled by one of five master craftsmen, called Takumi, at Nissan's plant in Yokohama, Japan.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R flaunts the new V-motion grille with matte chrome finish and an updated mesh pattern. Inside the cabin, the new GT-R features an instrument panel wrapped in hand-selected Nappa leather and a revised front seat design. It features relocated and redesigned paddle shifters, display commander for audio, communication, and entertainment selection and multi-function display.

To be available in Vibrant Red, Blue Racing, Ultimate Silver, Gun Metallic, Black Metallic, Pearl White and Katsura Orange shades in India, the GT-R will be offered in the European spec Premium Edition.
