The talking point about the new Nissan GT-R Nismo is its 3.8 litre V6 VR38DETT motor. This engine has a max power of 600bhp and peak torque of 652nm

The increased power output is courtesy a new high-flow, large diameter turbochargers which are also used in GT3 racing. An upgraded fuel pump with enhanced ignition timing control for each cylinder also results into the better performance.
