We already know that the Nissan GT-R is an affordable sports car that is capable to smoke more expensive models from other manufacturers. Still, Nissan unveiled the GT-R Nismo, which claims to be even faster than the standard GT-R, as it is lighter and more powerful.
Tim Kent, a photographer also passionate about cars decided to make some interesting ads to mock other carmakers who offer exotic cars that cost twice or three times as much. As you can see from the photos, there is a knife wearing the GT-R logo as well as the message “Nissan GT-R Nismo – 0-60 mph in 2.0 seconds”.
Although there is nothing official that the GT-R Nismo is capable to zoom from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.0 seconds (we believe the new vehicle will need 2.5 seconds), we do admit that the ads are quite impressive.
The advertising shows a bloody knife that just cut two bull balls, some horse meat or some Frankfurters a.k.a. hot dogs. All the packages refer to well-known supercar manufacturers – Lamborghini, Ferrari and Porsche – and honestly they are maybe the most interesting ads we’ve seen recently.
The 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo is priced at $149,990 (excluding destination and handling charges) in the United States and it is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that generates 600 hp and 481 lb-ft (652 Nm) of torque, with 55 hp and 18 lb-ft more than the standard GT-R.
Currently, Lamborghini’s most powerful model is the Aventador, which is offered with a 6.5-liter V12 engine that delivers 700 hp and 509 lb-ft (690 Nm) of torque. The Italian supercar accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, while top speed is 350 km/h or 217 mph.
Meanwhile, Ferrari offers the F12berlinetta (excepting the LaFerrari, which is a hybrid supercar) and this model carries a 6.3-liter V12 engine that pumps out 740 hp and 509 lb-ft (690 Nm) of torque. The F12berlinetta sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 200 mph or 320 km/h.
Porsche’s rival to the GT-R Nismo is the 911 (991) Turbo S, which comes with a 3.8-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine with direct petrol injection that develops 560 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque.
The German sportscar is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 197.5 mph or 318 km/h. All these models are much more expensive than the Nissan GT-R Nismo, but we believe that the AWD Japanese sports car will be much faster than all the vehicles we’ve mentioned.
