Nissan has announced the introduction of the 2013 GT-R Nismo GT3 that brings a series of updates.
The most significant improvements were made to the performance and durability of the engine, along with new suspension settings to match the revised aerodynamics package. Brake balance and aerodynamic performance have been improved as well, along with the gear ratio to optimize the engine output increase.
Speaking of output, the power of the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 has increased from 523 hp (390 kW) to 543 hp (405 kW). Torque is also up from 451 lb-ft (612 Nm) to 470 lb-ft (637 Nm). It has the same 2,866 lbs (1,300 kg) weight as the model it replaces.
Already available on order, the 2013MY costs 270,000 GBP (without taxes) in Europe (including Russia, Middle East) and 35,000,000 yen in Japan, Asia, North America, South America and Oceania.
Nissan said that an upgrade kit for the 2012 GT-R Nismo GT3 which was launched earlier this year is in the works.
