Nismo Festival 2009: Nismo Super Taikyu Spec GT-R Spied – SCOOP Photos!

December 5th, 2009


Previously just a rumor, today we saw the proof that Nissan is developing a Super Taikyu specification R35. Based on a standard MY2010 GT-R and utilising many of the components originally developed on Tokachi 24hrs competing R35 GT-R (i.e. tjhe SpecV prototypes), this new spec GT-R kind of caught us by surprise. The good news first, yes it IS VR38DETT powered and AWD and utilising the GR6 transmission! Finally a true GT-R race car? (Sean will be pleased…)

It was in the pits for mere moments before being locked away in a truck so we’re using our friend from‘s photos. These are the only ones known to exist right now.

Hopefully Nismo doesn’t keep all their toys locked away for the entire weekend and we see this thing in action tomorrow.

If not, don’t fret, we have loads more photos we’re holding back until we get a green light…

    That wing looks like they came straight off from the GT500 machines. They’re even bigger than those used by the FIA GT1 GT-Rs!

    Maybe you should talk to the guy in the last picture taking photos of the rear wing.
    I think he has pictures of the engine bay and interior plus the specs on the car.

    Nice to hear they are going to run a Super Taikyu car. It looks pretty close to the Tokachi car. Looking forward to the rest of the pictures.

    I have all those photos on my HDDs, I can’t post it though since these photos belong to GTR-World, I must wait for them to go first.

    Looks like a beast of a car; love the wing at the back but would look so much better in all black. Will this version ever be available for people to buy?

    Looking forward to seeing it in action and hope there will be some more pictures to drool over here soon.

    Look at this car. A very powerful car with good car parts and accessories. I want to drive this car someday.
