The Nissan GT-R is probably the fastest-accelerating car on the market right now but it seems that it will not be for long. Why? Because Nissan is preparing the Nismo version of the GT-R, which will be even more powerful and lighter than the standard version. AutoExpress says that the upcoming Nissan GT-R Nismo will be capable to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in an astonishing 2.0 seconds!
This means that the GT-R Nismo will be faster than the exclusive Bugatti Veyron Super Sport but also than the lightweight models such as the Ariel Atom V8. Apparently, the twin-turbo V6 engine will get a power boost thanks to British company Williams Advanced Engineering, same company that helped Nissan to develop the Juke Nismo.
Moreover, the Nismo GT-R will get a range of sporty styling upgrades, a new exhaust system and plenty of carbon fiber trim and red detailing. For those who don’t know, the 2013 Nissan GT-R is powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine developing 550 hp and can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.7 seconds. The Nismo GT-R will make its debut in November at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.
