Nissan GT-R Nismo spied wearing heavy camouflage

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 5, 2013

Photos of a heavily camouflaged new Nissan GT-R Nismo, the 'ultimate' version of the GT-R, have recently come out. It was spied while it was tested in Europe, just outside of Nissan's technical centre. The car got aesthetic and aerodynamic modifications, which will most probably feature a Nismo-specific bodykit.

The other modifications include an air intake system that’s a bit different. It will also come with Nismo-specific parts like alloy wheels. In addition, it appears that the Nismo version will get a different suspension setup since it seems to be somewhat lower than the traditional GT-R. According to Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan, it will be “unthinkable” to develop a lineup of Nismo road cars that won’t have the GT-R.

He believes that the standard road car is already a global supercar and the GTR's performance on track shows off how talented and passionate the Nismo team is. He boasted that the GT-R Nismo will be special. He cited that Nissan's standard GT-R, featuring a twin-turbocharged 524bhp 3.8-litre straight six, can go from zero to 62mph in 3.0sec.

Built together with the Williams Formula 1 team, the Nismo is likely to be faster but it has yet to be determined just how impressive it will be. The sale date of the new Nissan GT-R Nismo is likely to be in 2014. It will be available together with the standard version in specialised dealerships. It’s expected to cost significantly higher than the standard model. The Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500 will appear in the 2014 Super GT Championship together with the Honda NSX and Lexus LF-CC.
