Engine

The GT-R Nismo will come equipped with a twin-turbo 3.8 liter V8 engine capable of a maximum output of 591 horsepower and 482 lbs ft of torque.

This GT-R's top speed has been limited to 186 mph. It uses a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with a manual shifting mode. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is done in 2.9 seconds.

Performance

The increased downforce gives the car excellent road grip. At the same time, the cars distance from the ground makes it much more stable at high speeds.

Steering and tight cornering are precise mainly due to the new suspensions and springs. Nissan gave this Nismo model more traction and higher stability when performing difficult maneuvers.

Exterior

From a visual perspective, the GTR Nismo received multiple changes to the front line to increase downforce.

The front bumper now features an extra large grill. The rear spoiler lowers the center of gravity and thus increasing the car’s handling properties.

Interior

The interior is available in all black with red elements on the doors, seats and steering wheel.

The gauges combine red and blue elements while the steering wheel has been equipped with multiple controls for the driver’s convenience.

The central area features a generous LCD display screen and right beneath, a carbon texture control panel.

The price of the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo makes it out of reach for the average consumer but Nissan's aim is to build a competitive sports car, not an affordable one.
