2011 GT-R Testing at Nurburgring

Not official yet but, these could be shots of what will become the 2011 Nissan R35 GT-R. These photos were shot on Thursday 23rd of April in Germany while Nissan had the Nordscheife to themselves setting new best laps on the ‘Ring with another, base model, standard 2010 GT-R.

Kislik, our friendly GT-R owner from the Czech Republic snapped these shots of the masked car as it was tested during the same session.

Firstly we asked ourselves why there was a masked, apparently base spec model on the circuit? Some theories were, that this was an older test mule from 2007 or possibly a 2011 SpecM test mule?

What we can say is, as you can see for yourself in the insets above, this GT-R has never seen before modifications to the rear underspoiler. Combine that with the fact that this license plate was previously used on Nissan’s SpecV test car in 2008 I think we can rule out the 2007 test car/old mule theory and infer this is a new car.

Visible changes? Firstly there’s venting on the underspoiler sides. Secondly there appears to be a modification to the diffuser at the rear – It looks to be in two pieces now. This is a 100% crop image so it’s about the most detail we have right now. Let us know if you pick anything different.
