Even as all of us excitedly wait for the arrival of the next-generation Z-car, Nissan hasnt forgotten that its true efficiency flagship is still the GT-R. To remind the rest people that Godzilla– as its often passionately understood– is still king of the beasts, the automaker has actually announced a brand-new limited-run unique edition of the track-focused GT-R Nismo. The majority of the Special Editions body is coated with Nismo Stealth Gray paint, save the carbon fiber hood, which now proudly shows its weave below a clear gloss coat. The contrasting dark hood is a great enhance to the GT-R Nismos already exposed carbon fiber roofing. Unique 20-inch Rays forged-aluminum alloy wheels fill the arches with red accents, echoing the Nismo Red pinstriping along the lower aero bits. This will likewise be the very first GT-R to use Nissans new minimalist logo design on its trunk lid and on the center caps.

The tighter tolerances permit the GT-Rs engine home builders– special Nissan master specialists called takumi who hand-assemble each powerplant in an unique clean space– to dial in quicker turbo spooling, snappier revs and sharper performance. And considering that tighter internal tolerances arent something you can quickly see, GT-R Nismo Special Editions engine will feature an aluminum takumi accreditation plate in an unique color.Nissan will build a limited number of Special Editions, some of which will be available in North America this fall.

For the many part, the GT-R Nismo is mechanically the same. Its still powered by Nissans 3.8-liter VR38DETT twin-turbo V6 making 600-horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque– 35 ponies and 14 pound-feet more than the non-Nismo design. That power is still transformed into forward thrust by a sophisticated ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system and six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Handling is still boosted by the Nismo-tuned adaptive-damper suspension..

The GT-R Nismo Special Edition isnt shy about displaying its carbon fiber.
