The Nismo version is based on the 2015 GT-R and it gained a series of updates that transformed the GT-R into a real track machine, while keeping it perfectly suitable for the road. This is a delicate balance for any automaker, let alone Nissan, who does not have tons of experience in developing high-end supercars .
On the exterior, Nismo worked on improving the car’s aerodynamics, giving it lower front and rear bumpers that were revised for aerodynamic efficiency, sill side skirts and a huge wing on the rear. On the inside, the Nismo GT-R gets special suede-trimmed Nismo sports seats with red stitching, plus a redesigned steering wheel, pedals, gauges and gear knob.
Under the hood, the 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V-6 engine is tricked to deliver an extra 35 ponies, putting it in line with some of the best supercars in the world.
The new Nissan GT-R Nismo will hit dealerships in 2014, following its release in Japan.
