Nismo GT-R Coming in 2014


Nissan's performance brand has moved to a larger facility, paving the way for series of new Nismo models - including a Nismo GT-R.

Nissan's Nismoperformance arm has been tasked with creating the ultimate GT-R for the road.Joining the Juke Nismo and 370Z Nismo, the GT-R Nismo, based the 2013 GT-R, willbecome Nissan’s new flagship model and the third Nismo-badged model from theperformance-orientated brand. As Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn said upon opening the new Nismo facility in Yokohama, "It would be unthinkable for us to develop a range of Nismo roadcars without including the GT-R."

The standard road car is a global supercar and the GT-R's performance on track reflects the passion and talents of the Nismo team. The GT-R Nismo will be special and I can't wait to drive it." Expect the R35-gen GT-R Nismo to be significantly more capable than the recently unveiled Track Pack, which is the current top-spec model. While Nissan remains tight-lipped over the specs of the GT-R Nismo it plans to roll out next year, it has announced that the Nismo brand will enter a new era of performance road car production of which the GT-R will be just one part, albeit an incredibly fast one.
