2012 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3

JR Motorsport announced their Nissan Nismo GT-R GT3 back in September 2011, but Nissan themselves have already gone to work on a GT-R GT3 Nismo that they plan to unveil at next week’s Dubai 24 Hours. The new car will compete in the A6 class at the hands of Michael Krumm (GER), Tom Kimber-Smith (UK), Franck Mailleux (FRA), and Alex Buncombe (UK).

The new GT-R GT3 Nismo is powered by a 3.8 liter V6 twin-turbo engine mated to a Hewland 6-speed sequential gearbox with a Sachs 4- plate sintered clutch and a semi automatic pneumatic paddle.

The GT3 Nismo has also been equipped with a new set of 18" RAYS center-lock, aluminum forged wheels and a new set of Brembo brakes. Nissan then replaced the standard exhaust system with a new side-exit exhaust with optional catalytic converter. The panels and doors are made of carbon composite and, for a better aerodynamic, Nissan has attached a wind tunnel developed front splitter, bumper, and flat floor, as well as an adjustable rear wing.

UPDATE 01/23/12: Nismo and JR Motorsports (JRM) have released new details and a new image on the Nismo GT-R that will be used for GT3 racing worldwide. The model will use a 3.8 V6 twin-turbo engine based off the standard car, with the output increased to 530 HP at 6,400. If anyone interested, the starting price for this racer is 298,000 Euro, or about $388,000 at the current exchange rates.

UPDATE 03/26/12: The Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 is finally out on track. Check out how the racer takes to the asphalt by clicking on the photo above!
