NISMO GT-R Confirmed



Quote:
There will be an even hotter version of the cult-followed GT-R tuned by Nissan’s Nismo performance arm in the next 12 months.

“It would be unthinkable for us to develop a range of Nismo road cars without including the GT-R,” Ghosn said.

Year after year, Nissan has historically made a point of tweaking the GT-R for improved performance, including the 2014 model year. Now, the company has officially confirmed that its new flagship will be a Nismo-tuned version of the car. The announcement came during the official opening of its new Nismo factory in Japan.

Performance specifications weren’t announced for the car, but Ghosn said that it will not only be revealed, but will be ready for driving in that 12-month time frame.

Word of the new car was part of a larger announcement that the Nismo brand will be expanding greatly in the future. That expansion will include a line of “affordable performance cars” as well as the flagship GT-R.

“Nismo is a key element in Nissan’s future global road car and motorsports strategy and we will quickly establish it as Nissan’s exclusive performance brand,” Nismo President, Shoichi Miyatani said. “This is the first time that all of our team has been located together, and the entire facility will become a hothouse of passion and performance.”

The new facility, Ghosn said, will serve as a “think tank” to develop unique, cutting edge cars, and will allow Nissan to strengthen its motorsports presence.
