Nismo engineers are currently in the works of creating a prototype GT-R that will be the fastest Nissan ever created… the Nissan GTR Nismo (R35 Skyline Nismo)..
There are rumors that this Nismo GTR edition will complete the Nürburgring in under 7 minutes 18 seconds, comfortably surpassing the current GTR lap record,and much faster than Porsche’s GT3 (7 min 22 sec).
A few months ago, the world caugh on to this Supercar when Nismo [ Nissan Motorsport ] officially announced their global HQ in Yokohama, Japan, an integral part of Nissan’s business. Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn said: “It would be unthinkable for us to develop a range of Nismo road cars without including the GT-R. The GT-R Nismo will be special…”
Nissan has a history of releasing Nismo Z cars; the latest being the 370Z Nismo model, prior to that the 350z Nismo. While a Nissan spokesman saidT-R is going to be the “hardest GT-R ever”. The GT-R on the roads and lots today, if you call it ‘standard’, is a exceptional piece of automobile… and the Nismo edition is in millions of global GTR [Skyline] and Nissan fans.
Nissan is of course, not yet disclosing most of the details, only quoting that the car is currently in the development, and many phases yet to go. But if you look at the history of Nismo products and editions: more power, better handling, improved aerodynamics, looks and technology [innovation]; it is going to be amazing.
The current GT-R produces roughly 545bhp and 465lb ft of torque; you can expect the Nismo version of the GT-R to top out at around 570bhp (stock!).
And everyone is curious about any cosmetic/aesthetic changes or steering/suspension/handling. Expected to be officially announce and released in 2014, the world cannot yet grasp to their expectations of a NISMO GTR Skyline R35 which many will call the SUPER GODZILLA of the road. Nissan all the way!
