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.
With the latest cutting-edge Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulation method to evaluate airflow, Nismo has enhanced an aero package that boosts road-holding, lessen the negative drag impact, all while providing the car a big bad boy look.
The front bumper, carbon rear spoiler, and engine undercover strake intensifies downforce, lowering the center of gravity and producing an added 100kg (at 300km/h) in contrast to the newly upgraded 2014 GT-R model. The vehicle’s aerodynamic qualities are fine-tuned to certify that the downforce is equally spread from front to rear at all speeds for progressive handling qualities. An expanded front bumper configuration and extended yet tapered rear bumper design helps maintain the drag to Cd 0.26, same as the 2014 Nissan GT-R.
The brand-new Nissan GT-R Nismo will be reproduced in five body colors: Brilliant White Pearl, Ultimate Metallic Silver, Vibrant Red, Meteor Flake Pearl Black, and new to the GT-R Nismo model, a Dark Matte Grey that highlights the vehicle’s authoritative vibe.
GT-R Nismo’s black 6-spoke wheels are prompted by Nissan’s legendary GT500 race car.
