With a debut set for this November, the upcoming Nismo GT-R is reportedly faster than a Veyron going from 0-60mph.
We know that Nissan’s Nismo performance division will unveil an ultra-ridiculous GT-R at the Tokyo Motor Show in November. It’s also known that the car will lap the Nurburgring in less than 7 minutes 18 seconds, and will reportedly be the fastest GT-R ever made. To give you an idea as to exactly how fast it’ll go when not racing around that German track, a new report is claiming that it will blast from 0-60 mph in 2 seconds flat. We will repeat that: 2 seconds flat. In other words, the Nismo Godzilla will sprint to 60 faster than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and even the Ariel Atom V8.
It’ll still be powered by the same twin-turbo V6, but Nismo is working to get the car’s curb weight down as much as possible. What’s more is that Nismo has partnered up with British company Williams Advanced Engineering, who also took part in the equally nuts Juke Nismo project. Referring to the GT-R, a Williams engineer claimed that "You’d be surprised at how much room for improvement there is...where you expect it’s all been tuned to the maximum, it’s actually easy to make big gains." Expect for the Nismo GT-R to receive some styling upgrades, an improved exhaust and lots of carbon fiber trim.
