What do you get when you put a handcrafted, 3.8-liter V6 engine that can output 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque in a vehicle? You get the 2017 Nissan GT-R, one of the most impressive on the market. Yet for all its power, there’s one thing that the GT-R lacks: a lot of noise.
Thanks to advanced design, the engineers at Nissan were able to dampen noise in this vehicle to create a driving experience that is as sublime as it is speedy. To achieve this feat, however, they had to rely on a some impressive technologies.
Nissan had an ingenious solution to cut down the noise that reaches the cabin. Inside the car is a microphone that picks up and identifies unwanted engine noise, which then prompts a noise-cancelling system to produce an acoustically opposite sound, thereby cancelling most of the noise.
Of course, the engine is far from the only source of noise in a car—a lot of cacophony comes from outside the vehicle, too. That’s why the GT-R is also equipped with a specialized windshield that has sound-absorbing technology between the glass.
Indeed, the obsession to detail that went into the GT-R’s creation guaranteed that no aspect of your driving experience will be subpar. If you want to learn more about this exceptional sports car, feel free to head to Nissan dealerships serving Rio Rancho to ask for a test drive. When you get behind the wheel, you will see that powerful and quiet can indeed coexist in one vehicle.
