THE 2013 MODEL NISSAN GT-R NISMO GT3 RELEASED

TOKYO, Japan (November 13, 2012) - Nissan Motorsports International Co., Ltd. (Nismo) is pleased to announce the official release of a Nissan GT-R (R35) that conforms to FIA GT3 regulations: the 2013 Model, Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3. 

The 2012 model, Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3, which debuted this March, has brought back race victories from across the globe. Entered by NDDP RACING (Nismo) as well as customer racing teams, the GT-3 has outperformed the competition at this year's SUPER GT series (GT 300 class), Super Taikyu (GT3 class), British GT Championship and GT Cup. Nismo has developed the 2013 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 using all the valuable data brought back from these races, in addition to the dyno, track tests, and customer feedback, to enhance its competitiveness and performance. Most significant improvements were made to the following crucial points:

- Engine performance & durability

- Aerodynamic performance

- Brake balance

- Suspension setting to suit new aerodynamics package

- Gear ratio to optimize engine output increase

Engine is the biggest contribution to performance enhancement, which includes new camshaft timing. Moving parts of the engine were also reinforced to guarantee durability. Several modifications were made to enhance aerodynamics: canards were added to the front and the front fender louvers were enlarged. The positioning of the rear wing was optimized. These changes improved aerodynamic balance between front and rear, and increased downforce, which enhanced overall aerodynamic performance.

The 2013 model, Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 is manufactured on demand. Orders will be accepted from November 13, 2012 on. Should the number of orders exceed production capacity, Nismo retains the right to make final decisions on order fulfillment.

Nismo is currently preparing an update kit for the 2012 model, Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3.

Sales and customer support for the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 will be implemented by Nismo for Japan, Asia, North America, South America, and Oceania, whilst our project partner, JRM, will continue to cover Europe, Russia and the Middle East, in the same way as 2012 Model.
