After making it’s Super Taikyu debut and track debuts in 2010, Nismo has finally put the finishing touches on the production model Nissan Nismo GT-R RC race car. Coinciding with Tokyo Auto Salon 2011, the car is now officially available for customers to buy both in and outside Japan.
The NISSAN NISMO GT-R RC is the latest entry to the RC (Racing Competition) line of high performance, production model race cars developed and outfitted by NISMO. It’s built up from the world renowned, top performance NISSAN GT-R (R35) road car. The body has been lightened, fitted for slick tires and equipped with safety equipment to ready it for competition use. During the car’s development, it was entered in the 2010 SUPER TAIKYU Round 4 at Fuji, where it confirmed its high performance, reliability and durability.
Fitted with the same VR38DETT and GR6 transmission that powers the road car, Nismo aren’t giving the exact power/torque specifications away except to say that they exceed 485ps and exceeds 60 kg/m of torque. We’ve seen the GT-R RC quite a few times on here before so the special aero, carbon and race preparations are certainly not new to you.
What is news though is the price, Nismo will build you a GT-R RC to order for 20,790,000 yen or around $250k USD for a circuit ready race car.
