2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo

Following in the footsteps of both the Juke and 370Z, Nissan wowed the Tokyo Auto Show with the introduction of the GT-R Nismo. While availability in the US is expected much later in 2014, the in-house tuners of Nissan have done their best to make it worth the wait. Under the hood, larger turbos from the Nissan GT3 race car bump the horsepower to just under 600 although Nissan engineers slyly noted that they could extract even more but at the risk of forcefully detaching the transmission from the rest of the car- in lots of pieces. The already bone jarring suspension is firmed up even more and the entire package rolls on tuner favorite Rays Wheels shod in Dunlop rubber. So, how fast is the GT-R Nismo? Real fast is the answer coming from Nissan. So fast that a GT-R Nismo with track package just crushed the Nurburgring in 7 minutes 8 seconds. For under $200,000. To put that in perspective, the Porsche 918 hybrid we covered recently did the Nurburgring in 6:57. Sticker price for the Porsche: $845,000. Now that is bang for the buck.
