Next-gen Nissan GT-R (R36) will receive hybrid technology from Williams

Williams Advanced Engineering will provide the hybrid technology for the next-gen Nissan GT-R (R36), according to reports. In late August, Nissan had filed a trademark application for the "R-Hybrid" name. Obviously, Nissan wants to hybridize its supercar. It’s predicted that the all-new GT-R will be released towards the end of 2015 as a 2016 model year.

It’s also expected to feature cylinder deactivation and stop/start systems to improve fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. But before the next-gen model arrives, the current model’s Nismo version will be released in the market next year. This vehicle is equipped with a more powerful engine, with an output of at least 570bhp.

In addition, it has a smaller curb weight, enabling the vehicle to accelerate from zero to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in two seconds. The R35 GT-R Nismo is expected to finish a lap at the Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 18 seconds.

It’s likely to adopt a different body that will include a rear wing. The Nismo-tuned Nissan GT-R will go on sale in early 2014 but before that, it will be displayed at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show.
