The Nissan GT-R Nismo 2014 model has been released at Tokyo Motor Show yesterday. Adam Zillin from 7Tune is giving a nice walk-around, detailing the specs in this YouTube flick. According to Nismo, the car’s design was inspired by the GT3-spec race car, that competed in the 2013 24-hour race at Nürburgring.
Nissan GT-R Nismo 2014 Specs
The maximum output was increased by 55 horsepower to an immense 600 hp. Torque is spec’d at over 480 pound-ft, which means an increase of at least 35 lb-feet over the stock model. Engine modifications include high-flow air filters and increased diameter turbos. There is no note on a new exhaust system, even tho the pictures show newly designed exhaust tips.
The car’s suspension was tweaked by Nismo and features a larger, hollow anti-rollbar, high-rigidity bolts and a set of custom Bilstein DampTronic dampers.
A lot of carbon fiber has been applied to the car’s body, including carbon fiber sideskirts, a new CFRP front and rear spoiler and some detailing in the cars interior. The Nissan GT-R Nismo 2014 comes with a nice set of carbon fiber Recaro bucket seats, as well as a new Alcantara wrapped steering wheel. On the gallery pictures you can also see newly designed cockpit instruments, which remind me a lot of the Lexus LF-A’s gauges.
According to Nismo, the car flew around the Nürburgring in an astonishing 7 minutes and 8 seconds. Video proof below:
Nissan made several other videos available including the full time-attack lap:
