  • Superior aerodynamics for increased downforce and high cornering speeds

NEW DELHI, February 08, 2014: Scoring consecutive championship titles at Super GT racing series in 2011 and 2012, the Nissan GT500 GT-R is a car which takes the fundamentals of locomotion - “run, turn, stop”, and refines them to their utmost peak, crafting one of the most powerful racing-spec machines available.
The 2013 spec model further optimizes engine response and torque specifications, increasing fuel economy for even greater competitive power. Finally, the GT-R is armed with Nissan’s proprietary air conditioning system, developed by the company that knows GT racing better than anyone else.

The GT500 GT-R is powered by a VRH34B engine that represents the ultimate expression of NISMO and GT-R. The 3.4-litre V8 engine develops power in excess of 530PS and more than 440Nm of torque. With such astonishing output figures, the car still falls within the regulated weight of 1100kg.

The specially developed race version of Nissan GT-R boasts the very best in design and aerodynamics. The rear end of the vehicle has been designed to maintain extreme levels of downforce while drastically cutting down drag. The distinctive “shark teeth” rear design and modified underbody has proved to be a dynamic breakthrough for the GT-R.

Throughout the season, Nissan and NISMO work to maximize not only the engine's output, but also its flexibility by modifying response and torque characteristics to match the layouts of different racetracks. Fuel efficiency is also addressed by decreasing friction within the moving components of the drivetrain.
