GT-R NISMO: GOING BEYOND ULTIMATE
Ultimate Nissan, ultimate GT-R, ultimate supercar. And yet, it will never be enough. The GT-R has been refocused to be lighter, more responsive, with enhanced aerodynamics. There may not be a word for beyond ultimate – but there is the GT-R NISMO.
What It Takes to Wear the Badge
An incredible amount of engineering, testing, and manufacturing know-how is required before a vehicle is allowed to wear the NISMO badge. It is truly a badge of honor.
FANATICALLY TUNED 600-HORSEPOWER ENGINE
Engineered to dominate
Powered by the thrust of high-capacity turbos developed from our GT3 racing program, the GT-R NISMO's engine is the purest expression of passion, performance, and technology.
Greater Response Across The RPM Range
600 horsepower is impressive. But that didn't stop the engineers at NISMO. Further developments from the GT3 racing program make their way into the engine compartment – reshaped turbo vanes allow quicker spool up for enhanced response, and a more aggressive delivery of power across the rpm range.[]
HOW DO YOU MAKE A VEHICLE FEEL ALIVE?
COMPREHENSIVE CHASSIS UPGRADES ADD AGILITY AND GRIP
The GT-R NISMO finds enhanced handling that once again raise the bar for street and competition. Thanks to a reduction in weight with the addition of carbon-fibre body panels, and additional downforce, the Bilstein DampTronic suspension has been retuned and combined with a NISMO-tuned hollow stabilizer bar to increase the amount of cornering grip, while still providing a civil ride.
Nissan/Brembo carbon ceramic braking system
Increasing friction – the heart of braking – requires an incredibly hard compound. A lesson learned from racing, carbon ceramic is strong, exceptionally light, and heat resistant. Making the most of this competition technology, GT-R NISMO now employs larger rotors and pads, plus a new especially rigid caliper, wearing special paint that will not change colour, even at temperatures over 1800 degrees. The lighter weight of the braking system also reduces unsprung weight, enhancing handling and steering response.
New 20" Rays® forged wheels
GT-R NISMO features a new-design 20" RAYS forged aluminium wheel. A reduction in weight allows the suspension to react more quickly to driver input or road conditions, while the open design enhances cooling of brake components. A perfect partner, an all-new tyre was designed using supercomputer analysis. The result is a wider contact patch, greater cornering grip, and reduced rolling resistance. A win-win-win situation.
The Nissan GT-R NISMO’s suspension setup is tuned for stunning agility, road-holding and handling finesse, without compromising refinement. The springs and custom-developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers in the front and rear suspension are specially tuned to deliver exceptional grip levels and progressive handling response at the limit.
Body Bonding For Enhanced Rigidity
To enhance the GT-R's already rigid platform, additional adhesive bonding was added to key spot welds for increased body shell rigidity.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Exterior design & aerodynamics
Pushing the envelope
1. Carbon Fibre Hood
Reducing weight over the nose of the vehicle lowers the overall centre of gravity enhances front-to rear weight distribution, and improves cornering turn-in.
2. Carbon Fibre Fenders With New Venting System
Carbon Fibre fenders reduce forward mass, allowing the GT-R NISMO to respond more quickly to steering input. New aerodynamic vents come from the GT3 racing program, enhancing downforce for better braking and improved cornering grip with minimal increase in aerodynamic drag.
3. Carbon Fibre Roof
Reducing the weight of the roof brings the GT-R NISMO's centre of mass lower, enhancing stability, adding cornering grip and providing flatter cornering.
Aerodynamics that push the limits
CUTS LIKE A KNIFE
Carbon-fibre rear spoiler
Beauty for the beast. Designed to increase downforce, the Nissan GT-R NISMO’s hand-made dry carbon-fibre rear spoiler features a special coating that allows carbon-fibre “weave” to be felt by the touch.
Carbon-fibre side sills
The carbon-fibre side sills continue the work started at the front of the car – helping to generate additional downforce compared to standard Nissan GT-R models.
Carbon-Fibre Rear Fascia
An elongated yet tapered rear bumper design helps to keep drag to 0.26 Cd. Additionally, the NISMO-tuned carbon-fibre rear fascia - while being aerodynamically designed to help ensure downforce is equally spread from front to rear at all speeds - also helps to lower the centre of gravity.
Carbon-fibre boot lid
Detail bordering on obsession. The Nissan GT-R NISMO’s carbon-fibre boot lid adds stiffness, while weighing nearly half as much as a standard boot lid.
An interior focused purely on the driver
The Nissan GT-R NISMO cockpit is relentlessly focused. Recaro seats, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, and signature NISMO red accents throughout anticipate an experience like no other.
WHAT MAKES A NISMO FEEL LIKE A NISMO?
A legacy of victory
Dominance born on the track
The launch of Nissan GT-R NISMO is but the latest chapter in our story of pioneering spirit, innovation, and passion for motorsport.
The evolution of who we are
Since 1984, NISMO has been the official in-house racing arm of Nissan. Started by a group of maverick Nissan engineers over 30 years ago, NISMO is synonymous with passion, expertise, and the heights of Nissan performance – not to mention decades of racing dominance. Every time you see a NISMO badge, you’ll know it’s something extraordinary. Engineered with brilliance, designed with an undeniable edge, and fueled by passion without a redline.
A history of winning
In 1936, a 747 cc Datsun Midget took the checkered flag, and we haven’t stopped racing – and winning – since. From Japan to Le Mans, Dakar to Daytona, our dedication to innovation has made Nissan Motorsports a dominant force. Whether it’s a humble sedan like the Skyline developed into the legendary Nissan GT-R, or machines that will shape the future, including the Nissan Delta Wing and the all-electric LEAF racer, we race what we build, and we win what we race.
GT-R NISMO GT3
What a year! The NISMO GT3 racer claimed both the race win and the championship title in the Pirelli Super Taikyu Series in Japan at Twin Ring Motegi. The Endless GT-R (Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3), took the victory in the five-hour race – the team’s first Super Taikyu victory of the season, while the No. 99 Y’s Distraction GTNET GT-R clinched the title with a third-place finish.
