The 2014 GT-R Nismo 592 HP of power, 50 BHP over the standard

Car Tested: 2014 Nissan Nismo

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 1.5 (est.)

The Nissan GT-R is the fastest car in the world when it to 0-100 km/hr timing.

Nissan’s performance arm has decided to with the 2014 GT-R, the halo model. The result is new of performance and dynamism. MotorBeam was the select few media worldwide to experienced the most extreme in Japan last month. An before the Tokyo Motor press day on November 21, Nissan’s HQ was with media activity.

CEO Ghosn unveiled to the gathering the 2014 GT-R and Nissan Nismo . Ghosn said the launch that the Nismo of the GT-R comes with a tagline “Zero Competition.” And it comes to maintaining this there’s no compromise according to For 2014, the stock GT-R has a host of improvements that are to push the performance and convenience

The good thing is that halo product planners consulted GT-R users and in most of the suggestions. And with the treatment, the Japanese carmaker has the car genuinely more desirable.

Quest: Nissan first the GT-R in 2007 as a spiritual to the Skyline which was on sale 1969 to 2002. The first was showcased in 2001 while the concept was unveiled in 2005, in Tokyo.

With the aero package, the Nismo produces 100 kgs of extra

Fact or myth, well is what the spec sheet – top speed is 315 km/hr, and as expected has a big role to play in the overall and by using the latest Computational Dynamic simulation techniques to airflow, Nismo has developed an package that improves minimises the negative impact of The aero tweaks begin the front bumper, engine strake and massive fixed rear spoiler, modified and front valance, tapered valance and side skirts – all in carbon fibre.

Besides the impact, the carbon-fibre bits, to Nissan, help reduce the total weight by about 65 kgs and to work and increase downforce, lowering the centre of gravity by 15 mm and an additional 100 kgs at 300 km/hr compared to the 2014 GT-R. The Nismo aerodynamic characteristics are tuned to the downforce is equally spread to rear at all speeds for progressive characteristics.

That’s evident you notice the cars (stock and variants side by side). All help keep the drag to Cd the same as that of 2014 GT-R. And to sign-off its standalone the design of the six-spoke alloys are to be inspired by Nissan’s original racer and the body is now eight per stiffer.

The sporty interior is basked in and leather, bespoke red stitching is executed on the interior

Inside the there’s a befitting story to There’s plenty of evidence to craftsmanship and bespoke features and of cutting edge technology. The sporty RECARO seats up have been ergonomically and despite the firm padding, are body hugging. Then you the Nismo racer influence on the of the 3-spoke steering wheel is dressed in Alcantara.

Bespoke red stitching looks neat and so the carbon-matte weave finish on the dial classy while the gets a bright red dial. The cluster is also dressed Alcantara. Meanwhile, complementing the of the interior trim are discreet red on the seats, centre console, trim and steering wheel.

The V6 engine uses twin-turbos and several important upgrades

the aero tweaks and cosmetic the serious business is under the and under the bonnet in particular the existing 3.8-litre V6 VR38DETT has been further tweaked both hardware and software and is based on the knowledge that has gained from participating in octane events such as the 24 hour races. Engine has been bumped and is now rated at 592 HP and 652 Nm of

The biggest change out here to the breathing apparatus – by which we the turbo chargers. The old hardware has replace with new high-flow, diameter turbochargers, which are off from the GT3 racing cars. turbos help improve while optimised individual timing control for each and upgraded fuel pump combustion in the cylinders.

The Nissan GT-R Nismo on specially developed asymmetric tyres

Besides the engine the suspension set-up has been inspired by that of the Nismo GT-R. The coil springs and Bilstein DampTronic shock in the front and rear suspension are calibrated to deliver progressive response at the limit. Drive has of three suspension modes: Normal and R (for circuit

Since the users of Nismo are expected to enjoy track without the hassle of track Nismo has co-developed high asymmetric tyres with The Nismo variants are fitted 255/40 ZRF20 up front and ZRF20 in the rear on Nismo light alloys.

The GT-R’s reminds you of big supercars with the cylinders

Nissan decided we should test this car in an setting. So, an hour’s drive Tokyo, we accumulated at the Sodegaura Raceway, located in Sodegaura-shi, This is where we were up inside the Nismo GT-R for a few laps.

Given the go ahead by the marshal, we blast out of the pits a 90-degree right hander in gear. The acceleration in first and part of second is enough for one to that the Nismo GT-R is fast as the numbers on the spec have suggested all along. By the we completed a full lap, car reminded me one of the white-knuckle hit of acceleration a supercar tested by us recently, the 12C in particular.

While there’s plenty of in the low rev band to ensure G-forces are there’s a short delay as the GT3 move into action, and before you have realized you are hit by the ‘G’-forces literally pinning you to the

Noise from the V6 motor is bliss, right from to exhaust, everything is music

As I later, neck braces have been more in this exercise in addition to the helmets. The noise this car (combination of the intakes gulping the exhausts bellowing and all four ripping at the tarmac) is music to the

The benefits of extra 50 BHP, grip from the Dunlops and cornering speeds comes thanks to retuned springs and Bilsteins and tighter body part in thanks to the anti bar and the stiffer body. While, we limited to just four on this early preview we’re not complaining. It was enough for us to get a for its character which I am happy to is less brutal than most people might thought.

0-100 km/hr is rumoured to just 2 seconds, that’s on par Formula 1 cars and faster the Bugatti Veyron which 2.46 seconds. The car is in complete with the driver with all power at ones disposal. And set to mode one can feel the rear end under full throttle some lock applied, and real fun as long as one doesn’t it.

But the best part of this car is on a dry, flat track Sodegaura, the Nismo GT-R, much like the stock has been designed to stay as as possible.

The steering is deliciously with an incisive feel at speeds for total confidence

steering weight is slightly on the side, but its feedback is close to of the exotic supercars. In such a car with dial-in performance, you choose a trajectory, pour on the and literally fly out with tons of

For a car born out of engineering obsession, feeling of involvement and connection is a achievement and interestingly, despite the and improvements the fast reacting hasn’t lost is characteristic clunk while up or downshifting. In of sheer stopping power, the brakes are well endowed as far as job goes.

However, we were that Nismo doesn’t ceramic options as it feels the brakes are adequate for the job. We may not be convinced about the logic but since we had a good experience the car (no pedal fading etc noted), we no adverse comments to make.

The Nissan GT-R Nismo is a driver’s delight offering levels of performance

The GT-R is more than a power and with this arrangement the had reached the height of its powers. We expecting to be intimidated by the Nissan Nismo . instead we returned and this makes the car very to lucky punters. Nismo prepare 200 units of the GT-R year but there are no plans to this supercar in India at the

The Nissan GT-R is in itself an quick car offering loads of to the driver at a relatively attractive The Nismo version takes the even further, bringing the really into a league of its
