    Engine
    • VR-series twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6.
    480 hp @ 6,800 rpm. 430 lb-ft torque @ 3,200–5,200 rpm.
    • Dual overhead camshafts with variable intake-valve timing.
    • Cast aluminum cylinder block with high-endurance/low-friction plasma-sprayed bores.
    • IHI twin turbochargers, one per cylinder bank.
    • Pressurized lubrication system with thermostatically controlled cooling.

    Drivetrain
    ATTESA ET-S All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with independent rear-mounted transaxle integrating transmission, differential and AWD transfer case.
    • Rigid, lightweight carbon-composite driveshaft between engine and transaxle.
    • Electronic traction control plus 1.5-way mechanically locking rear differential.
    • Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC-R) with three driver-selectable settings: Normal (for daily driving, controls brakes and engine output), R-Mode (for ultimate performance, utilizes AWD torque distribution for additional vehicle stability) and Off (driver does not want the help of the system).
    • Hill Start Assist prevents rollback when starting on an incline.
    DisclaimerVDC-R cannot prevent accidents due to abrupt steering, carelessness, or dangerous driving techniques. Always drive safely.

    Transmission
    6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with three driver-selectable modes: Normal (for maximum smoothness and efficiency), Snow (for gentler starting and shifting on slippery surfaces), and R mode (for maximum performance with fastest shifts).
    • Fully automatic shifting or full sequential manual control via gearshift or steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
    • Dual clutch design changes gears in less than 0.5 second (0.2 second in R mode).
    • Downshift Rev Matching (DRM).
    • Predictive pre-shift control (in R mode) based on throttle position, vehicle speed, braking and other information.

    Wheels and Tires
    • 20 x 9.5" (front) and 20 x 10.5" (rear) super-lightweight forged-aluminum wheels with Gunmetal Gray finish.
    • Exclusively developed nitrogen-filled Bridgestone® RE070A high-capacity run-flat summer tires, 255/40R20 front and 285/35R20 rear.
    • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
    • Optional exclusively developed nitrogen-filled Dunlop® run-flat all-season tires, 255/40R20 front and 285/35R20 rear (includes Bright Silver wheels).
    Brakes
    Brembo® 4-wheel disc brakes with 4-wheel Antilock Braking System (ABS), Brake Assist, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Preview Braking.
    • Two-piece floating-rotor 15-inch front and rear discs with diamond-pattern internal ventilation.
    6-piston front/4-piston rear monoblock calipers.

    Steering
    • Rack-and-pinion steering with vehicle-speed-sensitive power assist.
    • 2.6 steering-wheel turns lock-to-lock.
    Suspension
    • 4-wheel independent suspension with Bilstein® DampTronic system with three driver-selectable modes: Normal/Sport (for automatic electronic control of damping), Comfort (for maximum ride comfort), and R mode (engages maximum damping rate for high-performance cornering).
    • Electronically controlled variable-rate shock absorbers. High-accuracy progressive-rate coil springs.
    • Front double-wishbone/rear multi-link configuration with aluminum members and rigid aluminum subframes.
    • Hollow front and rear stabilizer bars.

    Body/Chassis
    • Exclusive Premium Midship platform with jig-welded hybrid unibody.
    • Aluminum hood, trunk and door skins. Die-cast aluminum door structures.
    • Carbon-reinforced front crossmember/radiator support.

    It's 7:38 and this is not a repost. The car isn't even officially unveiled for another 30 minutes. Carlos Ghosn himself will say 7:38, mark my words.

    I couldn't find them anywhere. Mags say 3800 pounds, so it probably does weigh that much.
