Exclusive Nissan GT-R NISMO Special Edition to make autumn debut

first_img It is especially pleasant since the accelerator pedal is connected to a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, conservatively rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. Nissan says the GT-R NISMO Special Edition utilizes high-precision, weight-balanced parts for the piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft, and valve gear components. All of this is apparently dialed in with tighter tolerances, delivering snappier engine revs and quicker turbo spooling.Don’t forget: each engine is hand-assembled from beginning to end in a special clean room by master technicians known as takumi. After assembly, the engine bears this person’s signature.

Nissan previewed a new Special Edition of its GT-R NISMO today in Japan, one which will hit the streets – and race tracks – later this year.While there aren’t any powertrain changes to this model, it does strike a distinctive look. In the rarefied air of a collector’s world, that’s more than enough to get a high roller to open their wallet.This new trim features a Stealth Gray exterior color, a NISMO exclusive, plus new 20-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels and a unique clear-coated carbon-fiber hood. The latter exposes an intricate carbon-fiber weave, making it a good party piece when milling about at your socially-distant Cars & Coffee. Because branding is always an adventure, it is worth noting this is the first time we’ve seen Nissan’s new logo on a GT-R, showing up on the car’s trunk lid and wheel center caps. Standing out against that Stealth Gray paint are several dashes of red trim, ones which actually look pretty fetching in this application.Thanks to Nissan’s glacier-like design cycle, the cabin of this GT-R NISMO Special Edition will seem familiar to anyone who’s seen a GT-R in the past umpteen years, albeit with some snazzy red accents. There’s nothing wrong with that, since the GT-R interior is a decent place in which to spend time.
