The Japanese based automaker Nissan and the aftermarket specialists at Nismo have recently revealed their latest creation, the GT-R Nismo GT3 model.
After presenting us with versions of the Micra or even the Juke during the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon, Nismo is now taking on the Nissan GT-R, which has been upgraded and it’s now fully FIA compliant. Nissan and Nismo say that the GT-R Nismo GT3 ha been jointly developed with JRM (JR Motorsports) and it can compete in several GT3 events. The model is now coming with customizable driver controls and an adjustable suspension, along many other extra features like a “chassis that inspires confidence”.
“Nismo and JR Motorsports (JRM), its official partner for this major project, have been jointly developing the car during 2011 and, following a series of extensive tests – which have included three competitive outings – the car’s performance and durability has proven its credentials for GT3 racing worldwide”, as the automaker is saying in its official press release.
Under the hood, the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 is powered by a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 engine which is developing at least 523 horsepower and 612 Nm of torque (451 lb-ft), being mated to a six-speed semi-automatic transmission. The impressive ride will be available globally and its price is starting at 383.735 USD (298.000 EUR / 246.855 GBP / 32.000.000 YEN).
