Speed demons and car fans alike know the Nissan GT-R’s sleek style and power makes it one incredible supercar. Now the Japanese automaker is upping the ante with an even more powerful version of its supercar. The new 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo has arrived at dealerships and it packs the power to go along with its price.
The performance-driven Nissan GT-R Nismo boasts a starting price of $176,585, which sticks it around the range of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. That’s a significant increase compared to the GT-R Premium’s price of just over $111,000.
The new GT-R Nismo boasts a larger grille that’s as practical as it is aggressive. The new grille allows for more airflow to help cool the engine.
The new supercar brings a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces a furious 600 hp. The standard Nissan GT-R produces just 565 hp.
The sleek Nissan GT-R Nismo is assembled by hand and the name itself indicates upscale performance. The “GT” stands for “Grand Touring” while the “R” stands for “Racing.”
Differences between the standard model and Nismo performance version include the addition of carbon-fiber bumpers, black outside mirrors with a rear stripe, carbon fiber side sills, and a Titanium exhaust system. Inside, the GT-R Nismo boasts a leather instrument panel and lightweight seat design.
