Japanese car maker Nissan has showcased the new GT-R Nismo at the ongoing 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.
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.
The car’s chassis too has seen an update and the car now makes with custom Bilstein dampers with three adjustable settings (Comfort, Normal and R) and a 17.3 mm thick hollow rear anti-roll bar. To counter the higher G-forces of the new GT-R Nismo, Nissan has upgraded the suspension with retuned front double wishbone, springs and high endurance wheel bolts.
An exclusive set of Nismo tyres (255/40FZR20 front and 285/35ZRF20 rear) created by Dunlop keeps the new car glued on to the tarmac.A new aerodynamics package comprising of a new underbody cover, front bumper and rear carbon fiber spoiler in addition to reducing the cars centre of gravity adds a whopping 220 pounds of downforce while the car tears through the wind at 300 km/h.
The GT-R Nismo can be bought in as many as 5 paint options- Dark Matte Grey, Meteor Flake Pearl Black, Brilliant White Pearl, Ultimate Metallic Silver and Vibrant Red.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo will hit the dealerships in Japan in February 2014. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more updates on the new Nissan GT-R Nismo
