Key design features of the Nissan GT-R NISMO Special Edition include:
- Stealth Gray exterior color, exclusive to the model.
- Red accented 20-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels.
- Carbon fiber hood covered in a clear coat.
Under the hood of the super sports car pumps the heart of a VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6. The engine nets 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque to make you feel like you are zipping around the racetrack instead of heading to work.
According to Nissan, “The GT-R NISMO Special Edition utilizes high-precision, weight-balanced parts for the piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft, and valve gear components dialed in with tighter tolerances, delivering snappier engine revs and quicker turbo spooling.”
Master technicians, called Takumi, hand-assemble the engine in each GT-R NISMO Special Edition model. A special aluminum certification plate signed by the Takumi is attached to each engine’s front.
Although the GT-R NISMO will make its way to North America in the fall, the automakers have not released official pricing for the sports car.
