The creation of Nismo, their in-house division specially geared towards developing and producing performance cars, Nissan first unveiled the GT-R Nismo at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. One thing immediately making this a ‘Grand Tourer’ car to sit up and take notice of was its impressive performance at the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Nissan’s test driver - and 2011 FIA GT1 World Championship winner, no less - Michael Krumm, drove this superfast performance car during test runs, notching up a lap time of 7:08.679 minutes around the challenging German circuit.
That gives you a fair approximation of just how powerful the GT-R Nismo really is. The power is increased substantially from the preceding GTR model, kitted out with a 3.8 litre V6 Twin Turbocharged engine offering out an awesome 675 bhp, helping it accelerate from 0 - 60 mph in a blisteringly fast 2.5 seconds, on it way to top speeds of around 203 mph.
Cool Facts About the Nissan GT-R Nismo
A special edition of the GT-R Nismo was unveiled by Nissan at the 2019 New York Auto Show, in conjunction with a special GT-R model made for the 50th anniversary celebrations since models bearing that name were first produced.
Distinct to this new variant is a new ‘R mode’, which allows gear sets to shift more rapidly, new turbochargers to improve acceleration, retuned suspension, lightweight carbon ceramic brakes and a new carbon fibre roof, hood and fenders, substantially boosting its aerodynamic capabilities.
A test by performance car magazine Top Speed revealed that the new 2020 model was even faster than the earlier variant of the GT-R Nismo, with acceleration from 0 - 60 mph in a jaw dropping 2.48 seconds!
