The NISMO version of the GT-R gets a minor refresh, with a new bumper design that allows more air flow to cool the engine. Overall the carbon fibre font bumper now produces more down force than ever before and increases stability at high speeds, helping the car to reach 200 mph.
The body of the new GTR NISMO has be stiffened, and the shock absorbers, springs and stabilizers have been tuned to deliver a 2% improvement in slalom times and cornering performance compared to the previous model. The hand assembled engine utilises a pair of high-flow, large diameter turbochargers that are used in GT3 competition.
"The GT-R NISMO emphasizes the 'R' in its nomenclature. Its direct ties with racing makes it at home on any racetrack, providing the highest levels of excitement and exhilaration for the driver. With the 2017 GT-R as a starting point, the new NISMO version has become a more well-balanced machine, with not just increased performance, but a heightened premium feel overall. It is the result of our relentless pursuit of ultimate driving pleasure," said Hiroshi Tamura, the Chief Product Specialist of the GT-R NISMO and the standard GT-R.
