Nissan GT-R NISMO
nissan | November 27, 2013
If the lightning-quick Nissan GT-R is just not fast enough for your liking, Nissan is bringing the high performance GT-R NISMO to the market. With a body kit that includes new front and rear bumpers, new side skirts and an aggressive rear spoiler, the kit contributes an additional 220 lbs. of downforce at 186 mph. The twin-turbo V6 3.8-liter engine will be boosted by an additional 50 horsepower to 595 hp and more than 480 lb-ft of torque. The increase is due to revised intake and exhaust systems, reworked ignition timing, and larger turbochargers direct from the GT-R GT3 race car. The NISMO will also come with larger anti-roll bars and stiffer springs and electrically adjustable dampers.
No official performance data is available, but Nissan reports a Nurburgring lap time of 7:08.69 (check out the lap in the video below). The previous fastest time by a Nissan GT-R was set in 2012 at 7:18.
