The Nissan GT-R is considered by many to be the only true Japanese supercar able to compete – and often beat – the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini. But now the 80-year-old car company is getting ready to really grind 'em into the ground with the new GT-R Nismo.
This is not your mom's Nissan – unless she happens to be a car-crazy supermodel. It's got a monster 600 hp and 481 pound-feet of torque via a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 mated to a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox and all-wheel drive.
Nissan's engineers upgraded the car’s adaptive dampers, springs and sway bars, improving cornering performance and slalom times by two percent – a critical margin when you're dusting other dudes on the track.
Expect a punch in the pocket to the tune of $150,000-plus if you can get your hands on one of these beauties when they drop later this year.
