Following recent spyshots of the upcoming 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo testing at the infamous Nurburgring, the very first video has emerged showcasing the car undergoing high-speed testing at the ‘Ring. The following video was shot by Monsterchannel24 on YouTube.
The clip includes shots from all around the facility in what could be record-lap attempting runs. This seems likely because the track appears to be closed as they are no other cars on the track and the speed the prototype is testing at is simply insane!
As with all previous Nissan GT-Rs, the 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo features quite a subdued exhaust note. However, don’t let that fool you as the GT-R Nismo is set to become one of the fastest accelerating cars on the planet as well as one of the fastest cars around the Nurburgring.
According to company insiders, Nissan is aiming to make the 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo the world’s fastest accelerating production car. Yep, that means faster to 100km/h than cars such as the Ariel Atom 500 and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. However, Nissan isn’t just aiming to eclipse the current benchmark of 2.5 seconds, and instead wants to absolutely destroy it.
According to AutoExpress, the 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo should hit 100km/h in just 2 seconds flat. Just how will such a time be achieved? Well, according to previous reports, the 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo will develop in the region of 570hp, up from the 545hp of the 2013 Nissan GT-R. While those gains don’t seem all that impressive, the 2014 Nissan GTR Nismo will also be significantly lighter and Nissan is expected to make some serious advancements to its launch control system.
Alongside that insane acceleration figure, expect the Nissan GT-R Nismo to be significantly faster around the ‘Ring than the regular car. In fact, a sub-7 minute lap isn’t beyond the realm of possibility!
