Nissan delivered its first 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo in the United States and the first man to get its hands on it was Matt McCulloh. As expected, he is no ordinary person as he co-founded NAGTROC or the North American GT-R Owners Club in 2006 and definitely knows almost everything about the GT-R.
For those who don’t know, the GT-R Nismo is priced at $149,990 in the United States, excluding the $1,505 destination charge. What’s more interesting is that the vehicle uses a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque, 55 hp and 18 lb-ft more than the standard GT-R.
Each unit will feature black 6-spoke wheels inspired by the GT500 race car and will be available in five body colors such as Brilliant White Pearl, Meteor Flake Pearl Black, Ultimate Metallic Silver and Vibrant Red.
Unique to the GT-R Nismo model is the Dark Matte Grey colour that accentuates the imposing exterior muscularity. In addition, the vehicle arrives with an aero package that consists of a new front bumper, an engine undercover strake as well as a big carbon fiber rear wing.
Inside, there are carbon-fiber-backed Recaro seats, a three-spoke steering wheel wrapped in leather, a meter hood wrapped in Alcantara, carbon-like finish for the combi meter and a red design for the tachometer.
