We’ve got some great new images of the Nissan GT-R Nismo circling everyone’s favorite testing ground/racetrack, the Nürburgring. The GT-R seen here is camouflaged rather extensively to hide body details, but we can draw a few things from the eight photos our spies have been able to capture.
The front bumper has been tweaked for better airflow to the engine, while the rear bumper has also been revised. The six-spoke, forged RAYS wheels from the GT-R Track are probable production items, while the twin oval exhausts are either aesthetic or part of a new, freer-flowing exhaust system. All of that is kind of overshadowed by the GT-R Nismo’s huge wing, though. That big appendage should help keep the Nissan glued to the ground at the seriously high speeds its tweaked engine can propel it to.
Under the hood sits a twin-turbocharged V6, and while we suspect the displacement is probably identical to the standard GT-R, at 3.8 liters, the power output will be elevated. Our contacts suggest the standard car’s 545 horsepower is more likely to turn into around 600 ponies. There are no signs, however, that this is a hybrid. As has been the case, rumors continue to swirl that the GT-R Nismo will get to 62 miles per hour in just two seconds.
