The 2012 Nissan Nismo GT-R GT3 , which Nissan launched at the beginning of the year, scored some amazing results during this year’s racing season. Now Nismo is getting even more powerful for the 2013 racing season with the unveiling of its new 2013 GT-R GT3-Spec - a model that adds improvements to the engine, suspensions and aerodynamics. Orders will be accepted beginning on November 13, 2012. Each unit will be developed on demand.
Under the hood, the 3.8-liter V-6 twin-turbo engine has received new camshaft timing and reinforced moving parts. The engine delivers a total of 550 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 439 pound-feet at 5,000rpm.
In order to improve the car’s aerodynamics, Nismo adds canards to the front and the front fender louvers are enlarged. The positioning of the rear wing is also optimized. These changes improve aerodynamic balance between front and rear, and increase downforce, which enhances overall aerodynamic performance.
In Europe, the model will be priced at £270,000 - about $430,000 at the current exchange rates.
