The Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 is a beast of a racecar that carries quite a bit of technological innovations, making for a racer that you wouldn’t want to mess with out on track.

But for all the tidy gloriousness of the GT-R Nismo GT3, there’s an amazing team of race mechanics behind the car, doing all the work to ensure that the racer is always in tip-top shape and ready to compete at a moment’s beckoning.

In this video released by Nismo TV, we get to see a behind-the-scenes look at how the engineers and mechanics behind the modifications of the GT-R Nismo GT3 go about their work.

Equally important are the details they go through, including the brake system the car uses, the diagnostics run on the engine management system, and how it’s different from the stock GT-R.

It’s worth a watch if you’re a hopped-up Godzilla ready to belch fire on the competition.

There’s nothing about the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 that doesn’t exude all-around awesomeness. Built and designed for racing, the GT-R Nismo GT3 comes with a slew of racing components that were added entirely to turn it into a race car.

The panels and doors are made of carbon composite to make the car lighter. From there, Nissan replaced the standard exhaust system with a new side-exit exhaust with optional catalytic converter while also adding a new front splitter, a new bumper, a flat floor and an adjustable rear wing, all designed to improve the race car’s aerodynamics.

Finally, there’s that 3.8-liter V-6 twin-turbo engine that produces 500 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque while mated to a Hewland six-speed sequential gearbox with a Sachs four-plate sintered clutch and a semi-automatic pneumatic paddle shift.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
