Nissan GT-R Nismo

Have you seen “World’s greatest drag race” video on YouTube? Do you remember the silver car with blue vinyl in the movie “Too Fast Too Furious”? If you do remember; you must have got some idea about the car I am going to talk about. This series from Nissan is so famous that you can spot the car and name it from a mile away. It’s the Nissan GT-R series. The GT-R is often considered as the best driver’s car. The company launched the new GT-R series in 2007 and since then the vehicle has been on a roll.

The 2013 Tokyo Motor Show was supposed to be the podium for the launch of the Nissan GT-R Nismo but the beast was unleashed just a day before its official launch. Nismo is abbreviated from Nissan Motorsport International Limited. The 2014 Nismo GT-R is equipped with a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 power pack delivering 595 BHP and 652 Nm which implies an increase of power by 10% when compared to its predecessor, a standard R35 GT-R. The gain in power is because of larger turbochargers and changes in intake and exhaust flow systems which is inspired from the GT-R GT3.

To keep this mighty beast on the track it has been provided with 20-inch wheels, stiffer suspension and larger anti-roll bars, adjustable electronic modes and a fixed rear wing. The Nismo Nissan GT-R is the fastest GT-R and laps the Nürburgring in just 7:08.679.

The Nissan GT-R is widely known for its world record in 0-100 km/hr but unfortunately no data has been revealed yet. With 10% increase in power the Nismo GT-R is expected to hit 0-100 km/hr in just 2 seconds. The price is expected to be Rs. 1.25 crores (excluding excise duty). Well the GT-R has always been the talk of the town and with the Nismo edition it will be the cynosure for sure.
