The GT-R will get upgrades in engine, transmission and suspension
departments for 2013. For one thing, the twin-turbocharged 3.8L V6 will
breathe better, thanks to expanded intake ductwork and openings. Shifts
will be smoother as Nissan refines the twin-clutch 6-speed with a
burlier shift fork and fortified bearing. And suspension is upgraded
with a refined shock-and-spring package and additional valving.
Horsepower gains are only in the neighborhood of 15 ponies for a total
of 545, (and 15 lb-ft torque, up to 463). Maybe a little meh compared
to the 45-hp bump between the 2011 and 2012 models, but it's good to see
Nissan continuing to improve and refine their halo car instead of just
leaving well enough alone. And 2013 will come sooner than you think!
2013 models will become available for purchase in Janurary 2012,
presumably to get some solid sales numbers in ahead of the worldwide
apocalypse scheduled for later that year. Via Car & Driver.

The most impressive part is the 2.7s 0-60.

The tiny bump in power isn't much to note, but 2.7s is blazing fast. The Evo is mid-4's and it'll put your head back.

Nissan did an awesome job with that car from the beginning and they keep making it better.........now if they would give it a manual tranny option.

It is a manual, and an auto, just like the Evo, or Ferraris. You shift instantly when you hit the paddle.

You just want something to keep your left foot occupied don't you?

Auto takes the fun out of it for me even if it shifts faster. I have never owned an automatic car in my life.

I shift mostly with the paddles on the Evo. Around town and when I'm lazy I let it do its own thing though.

It is satisfying to feel in control though.

i'm sorry but a paddle shifter is a sorry excuse for a manual. Its called a man pedal and a stickshift, i plan to use them for the rest of my life....

I just love the feeling of hand from steering wheel to the shift knob slamming gears over and over. With each shift its like i feel the speed through my hands down my legs to my arms and the back of my seat...hard to explain but ya paddle meh.....
