Nissan GT-R Nismo Confirmed

Nissan’s performance division Nismo, is working on a new higher-powered version of the Nissan GT-R, joining already revealed Juke Nismo and 370Z Nismo.

“It would be unthinkable for us to develop a range of Nismo road cars without including the GT-R,” said Nissan CEO, Carlos Ghosn. “The standard road car is a global supercar and the GT-R’s performance on track reflects the passion and talents of the Nismo team. The GT-R Nismo will be special and I can’t wait to drive it.”

The standard 2013 Nissan GT-R is powered by a 542bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6, enabling it to reach 0-62mph in just three seconds.

Nismo engineers will improve already impressive GT-R’s overall performance, high-speed stability and ride quality. There will be also a new body kit and some updates to the interior to differentiate it from the standard model.

Final specs and performance figures will be released closer to market launch.
