The Nissan GT-R Nismo that’s been armed with N-Attack Package is all sorts of incredible and validation was shown after Nissan released a video of the track supercar running around the Fuji Speedway in Japan. When Nissan revealed the GT-R Nismo last November, it came with the label of being the fastest volume production car around the Nürburgring. But skeptics argued that the GT-R Nismo that clocked in a time of 7:08.679 came with a bevy of "track options", including the N-Attack Package.
Nissan , though, isn’t apologizing for any of it, and recently, the Japanese automaker took to the Fuji Speedway to do some fine-tuning of the components on the track-focused exotic before putting it on sale.
As far as what these changes are, there are a bunch of them, starting with carbon front fenders, a carbon hood gurney, a front spoiler and a 12-stage, height-adjustable rear wing. It also received four-way Öhlins adjustable dampers, a front limited-slip differential, a carbon plate rear limited-slip differential, dedicated intercooler piping made from carbon and aluminum, and different engine control management and traction control management.
All told, this isn’t just your normal GT-R, folks. This is a GT-R equipped with some of the best components to come out of Nismo, turning the GT-R Nismo into a tried-and-true supercar in every sense of the word.

Line up the 2015 GT-R Nismo with the base GT-R and you’ll see a pretty distinctive difference between the two. The former, in particular, comes with a bolder, thanks to a series of carbon-fiber elements — front fenders, hood and trunk lid — and a body kit that includes new front and rear bumpers and skirts. The carbon-fiber bits, according to Nissan, help reduce the car’s total weight by about 143 pounds.
But there’s more.
The new GT-R Nismo is powered by a 3.8-liter, twin-boosted V-6 engine that delivers a total of 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque, which is an awesome upward swing from the standard 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet.
Nissan decided to hold the performance numbers for now, but it did announce that the GT-R Nismo equipped with the optional Track Package lapped the Nurburgring in 7:08.68 with Michael Krumm, an ex FIA GT1 champion, at the helm.
