Nissan Motorsports aka Nismo has released the official Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 that meets all FIA GT3 regulations and will be eligible to race. While this is the all new 2013 model, the 2012 model has already been victorious around the world. It has participated in the SUPER GT series, Super Taikyu, British GT Championship and the GT Cup after been entered by NDDP RACING. By recording all the data from these races, Nismo engineers have been able to study the numbers to make this 2013 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 one of the best sports car to date.
With all the buzz about the Nissan Juke this past year, the world premiere for the Nissan Juke Nismo edition should have fans at the edge of their seats. Especially since the debut will take place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race from June 13th through the 17th. The concept was first seen on display at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, and this performance model will be the first to enter production in a series of new Nissan Nismo cars.
It is finally here, the Nisan GTR Nismo GT3 race car that was put together by JR Motorsports. It has been under construction since 2011 and has gone through numerous tests to reach perfection. The Nismo GTR is powered by the factory 3.8-liter twin turbo, however the V6 delivering 530 PS will only go to one drive axle instead of the stock AWD. This will make the Nissan sports car much faster for racing conditions, while the aerodynamics will help the handling as well. While this isn’t the fastest Nissan GTR ever built, it is one of the most appealing in terms of styling.
Nissan has launched their Nismo brand upgrade for the brand new Nissan GT-R which will boost the power numbers significantly. The upgrade will tune the engine and add transmission management software, but the only way to get the package is by renting it. The ECU upgrade and TCM start out at a two year price of 294,000 yen ($3,090 USD) and if you wish to continue to have it installed after the two years, there is a $330 yearly rent fee. What’s convenient about this modification is that it is a standalone program which can be installed easily on any GT-R model and also the SpecV.
The all new Nismo enhanced Nissan 370Z is approaching its launch this June and has many car tuning enthusiasts anxious for its arrival. Nissan made its debut at the New York Auto Show and many of you have probably seen the commercial of it drifting on television. Since the Nismo 350Z debuted two years ago, Nissan has made several improvements to the 370Z by giving it a 3.7-liter V6 engine, and few external and performance revisions. These upgrades project the 370Z to yield 350hp and 276lb-ft of torque at 5,200rpm. Derived from the Japanese S-Tune model, the 370Z was designed in the United States in a partnership with Japanese tuner Autech.
