[VIDEO] Nissan GT-R prototype caught testing on the Nurburgring
A prototype version of the Nissan GT-R has been recently caught testing on the famous German track, the Nurburgring.
According to the uploader of this video, there are actually two official test cars from Nissan, a black and a gray one, but what is strange about this new footage is that the two models don’t seem to be hiding anything. The Nissan GT-Rs in question seem to have the 2013 model year body but maybe the Japanese based automaker is working on a high performance version of the sports car. No details are being known on the Nissan GT-R prototypes in the video posted below.
As a quick reminder, the 2013 Nissan GT-R has a base starting price set at 96,820 USD in the United States and the sports car is coming with some interesting items compared to the previous model year, but the most important upgrade is the extra power offered by the V6 engine. According to the Japanese based automaker, the 2013 Nissan GT-R is still getting the 3.8 liter V6 unit which is now developing a total output of 545 HP, with a peak torque of 627 Nm (463 lb-ft), 15 HP and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm) more than the previous version.
