2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo

Nissan, back at it again with the racetrack ready two-door. Testing for the GT-R Nismo took place on the one-of-a-kind Nürburgring track and this beaut boasts a hand-built engine mated to a pair of turbochargers that push out up to 600 ponies,nicely handled by an upgraded all-wheel-drive system and six-speed dial-clutch gearbox.

Not only is the engine hand-built but it also demanded a larger grille, reinforced hood that would budge in high speed, and a carbon fiber front bumper to bring everything together. The interior is beyond plush featuring all the expected comforts from such a vehicle. These include an Alcantara steering wheel, a new and greatly improved center stack that’s been simplified from previous versions and hosts an eight-inch touchscreen. Oh yeah, and of course leather Recaro racing seats to boot. No word on pricing just yet, but considering the previous Nismo was priced around $150,000, we can safely assume this build will be in that ballpark.
