We can go on and on about the marvels of the new Nissan GT-R, not only is it styled to perfection, but with Porsche beating performance and the desire of every young man to own one, it has already become an icon.

But we can’t help but to share the wonders of its technology, the latest of which is a speed-limiter which is controlled by the car’s Satellite Navigations system.

The Japanese variant is speed-limited to 180km/h, which is more than you’d need, unless you want to track the car – and being a race-bred supercar, you’d be mad not to take your new GT-R on track.

Nissan of course, was aware of this, so they built a speed-limiter which is connected to the car’s GPS system, the GPS will send a signal to the car’s ECU to disable the 180km/h limit when it detects the car has entered a race track! How cool is that?

It is highly unlikely the GPS->speed-limiter system will be activated for Australian delivered GT-Rs. However locally sold variants are more than likely to have their speed-limit set higher than 180km/h.
