2012 Nissan Nismo GT-R RC: official specs, details, photos, and pricing

Article by Christian A., on January 17, 2011

The Nissan Nismo GT-R RC (Racing Competition), a production race car, will be showcased at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon. According to the company statement, the NISSAN NISMO GT-R RC is the latest addition to the RC (Racing Competition) line of high performance production model race cars that NISMO has developed and outfitted.

It is based on top performance NISSAN GT-R (R35) road car. Notably, the vehicle is built up from the pre-facelift version of the R35 GT-R. NISMO didn’t tweak the vehicle’s VR38DETT 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6, which means that it delivers more than 485 hp and 588 Nm of torque.

The vehicle doesn’t have the 530hp output that the refreshed version of the street-destined GT-R boasts but this racer features a lighter body, due to the use of carbon fiber for the bumper, hood, trunk lid and rear wing. It also has acrylic rear windows. As a result, the vehicle only weighs 1,520 kg.

Nismo fitted the car with a height adjustable racing suspension and a beefier braking system that uses 410 mm (front) and 380 mm (rear) rotors.

The vehicle sits on ADVAN 290/710 R20 slick tires, which are standard for all RC models. When it comes to safety features, the vehicle has an FIA standards-compliant weld-in roll cage, bucket seat & driver safety harness, fire extinguisher, ATL 120 liter safety fuel cell and air jacks.

The GT-R RC can be used on production car series from anywhere around the world. It is priced at JPY 20,790,000 ($250,500).
