Nissan Motorsports – also known as Nismo – has announced the official release of a Nissan GT-R that conforms to FIA GT3 regulations: the 2013 Model, Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3.
The 2012 model, which debuted this March, has brought back race victories from across the globe. Entered by NDDP RACING (Nismo) as well as customer racing teams, the GT-3 was used in this year’s SUPER GT series (GT 300 class), Super Taikyu (GT3 class), British GT Championship and GT Cup.
Nismo has developed the 2013 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 using all the data brought back from these races, in addition to the dyno, track tests, and customer feedback. The most significant improvements were made to the engine performance & durability, aerodynamic performance, brake balance, suspension setting to suit new aerodynamics package and gear ratio to optimize engine output increase.
Engine includes new camshaft timing. Moving parts of the engine were also reinforced to guarantee durability. Several modifications were made to enhance aerodynamics: canards were added to the front and the front fender louvers were enlarged. The positioning of the rear wing was optimized. These changes improved aerodynamic balance between front and rear, and increased downforce, which enhanced overall aerodynamic performance.
The 2013 model, Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 is manufactured on demand. Nismo is currently preparing an update kit for the 2012 model, Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3. The price of the Nismo GT3 is 270,000 euros.
