Nissan’s GT-R Racer Spied shakedown testing on the Nordschleife

On April 4th Nissan revealed the programe for the Nissan GT-R Team to Compete in the ADAC 24 Hour Race at the Nurburgring.

I’m very proud that Nissan and Mizuno san believe in me for this important project, in which the objectives are to participate in a race held at Nurburgring, where the GT-R has been developed since its launch, with a production-version model, to share the excitement with GT-R fans and to continue to provide “passion & emotion” to customers through further development of GT-R production cars through their ultimate performance.

The 2 cars will be driven both by Nissan and the PS3 Grand Turismo Development teams.

# 23 Team: Team NISSAN GT-R (GT -R Development Team)

# 123 Team: Team GT Academy GT-R (Polyphony Digital Team)

Before 24 hours, I have to compete in 2 of the VLN series races in the Nordschleife. The first will take place next weekend!

I’m really excited for this programe and I can’t wait to get in the GT-R and do my best for the GT-R development team at the 24h.

The new model goes on sale November 24 in Japan and lands in European showrooms in January 2012.

The changes include the engine has been reworked to give another 20hp along with additional fuel economy over the previous.

Also the Chassis has been made more rigid which in turn gives a better transmission feel with some tweaked internals.

Also for the RHD market there will also be the addition of a “Track Pack”. Which includes some further modifications to the aerodynamics and the removal of the rear bench seats.

2012 Nissan GTR Nurburgring Lap-Time Video

2012 Nissan GTR Spyshot @Nurburgring

After numerous sightings and excessive testing on the 2012 Nissan GT-R we was expecting to see an official release of its Nordschleife time, and wondered if they improved over the previous record with 7:24.22 compared to the 2011 record of 7:26.7.

This is impressive considering the Porsche Flagship 911 GT2 RS did it in 7:18 and the Maserati MC12 which managed a 7:24.29.

However one thing is missing from the GT2 RS claim is the cockpit footage.

The 2012 Nissan GT-R comes with a twin turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine with an output of 530 hp and 488 lb-ft of torque.

The GT-R’s chief designer Kazutoshi Mizuno deserves the praise for this achievement and I look forward to the Spec-V times which “Should” be ahead of the GT2 RS.

The changes are an extra fin sporting an LED light cluster for the daylight running with 6 leds in each cluster, and a more aggressive look in a slight redesined front bumper leading back to the flared and venter rear arches.

Also the car is rumoured to be running more than 500ps we expect around 530ps to be the final figure,also to compliment the daylight running lights there is an addition of a led cluster arrangement on the rear diffuser.

The new GT-R is expected to debut at the Paris Motorshow.
