Video: Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 Heads to the Track

Motorsport

The new racing variant of the GT-R supercar has been captured flying around the track.

Official details of the GT-R Nismo GT3 were released in January after the car entered the Dubai 24-hour endurance race. Although the pictures of the race car were cool, there's nothing better than seeing and hearing it tear around a race track. JRM Racing has thankfully put together a promotional video showing one of its race cars undertaking shakedown tests, which gives us the chance to see the GT-R Nismo GT3 on the move.

It features a 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo engine based on a standard road car unit, with power going to the rear wheels via a six-speed semi-automatic transmission. Output is rated at 523hp and 451lb-ft of torque.
