Fully FIA-compliant, the GT-R NISMO GT3 is eligible to compete in numerous GT3 events and is priced at 298,000 Euros.
Having been displayed earlier this month at the UK's Autosport International alongside the GT1 Nissan GT-R that won the 2011 FIA GT1 World Championship, Nissan has officially released details about the GT-R NISMO GT3, which is available to purchase for €298,000. NISMO and JR Motorsports (JRM) have been developing it and following a series of tests including three competitive outings, the car's performance and durability has been proven to meet GT3 racing standards.
Most recently, the car was an official Nissan Europe entry in the Dubai 24-hour race where it only managed to complete 73 laps of the intended 628, finishing in 70th position. The Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 features a 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo engine based on a standard road car unit, rated at 523hp and 451lb-ft of torque. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a six-speed semi-automatic transmission. Designed with road-going customers in mind, the 1,300kg car features "a chassis that inspires confidence," with suspension set-up and driver controls that be adjusted according to driver preferences.
