 Nissan GT-R Nismo leaked, 595 HP and 7:08 Ring time
Nissan GT-R Nismo

480 lb-ft of torque

The first official images and details about the Nissan GT-R Nismo have hit the web, prior to the car's full reveal set for tomorrow.

The Nismo-tuned GT-R makes use of an uprated twin-turbo V6 3.8-liter engine which now develops 595 HP (438 kW) and 480 lb-ft (650 Nm), up from the previous 545 HP (401 kW) and 463 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque. The increased output was possible after revising the intake and exhaust systems, as well as by installing bigger turbochargers derived from the GT3-spec model and modifying the ignition timing. Nissan mentions it would have been possible to squeeze additional power from the engine but at the risk of damaging the gearbox.

The Nissan GT-R Nismo sits on 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 255/40RF-20 run-flat Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST tires which provide more grip than before. The vehicle will be available with an optional track package which was capable of lapping the Nürburgring in 7:08.69 at the end of September when it was driven by Michael Krumm, an ex FIA GT1 champion.

This optional kit will encompass several carbon fiber body parts, along with a front splitter and a massive rear spoiler. Those carbon fiber bits and pieces will shave off a significant 143 lbs (64.8 kg) from the car's curb weight. In addition, the package will also encompass various chassis tweaks, manually-adjustable Öhlins shocks and different springs with a lighter rate.

Pricing details have not been disclosed but Nissan mentions the GT-R Nismo with the optional track package will cost less than 200,000 USD (about 148,000 EUR / 124,000 GBP).

Check back tomorrow for more official photos and full details.

looks Nissan is so upset with ring time that they have forgot to make reliable cars and now has to deal with 900'000 car recall :( P.S. @catchmyshadow you absolutely right there...

This car is outstanding engineering. It must cost twice the amount of money to manufacture this vs what the selling price is. This car is able to make all its horsepower get to the ground as nothing is wasted. I would love to have this in my stable.

Please this is called "worldcarfans" this car is a work of art, don't like the design then find it in yourself to respect it. Personally i don't think it looks that bad and the engineering put into this car is unbelievable.

performance figures are awesome especially when we talk about a 3.8L engine but I personally hate the car because it's too big and fat
