Following yesterday's online reveal, Nissan has publicly unveiled the GT-R Nismo at the Tokyo Motor Show.

The fastest ever GT-R needed only 7 minutes and 8 seconds to do a lap of the Nürburgring after experts from Nismo tweaked the supercar. They revised the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine by installing larger turbochargers, improving fuel pump combustion and optimizing the ignition timing of all cylinders. Thanks to these changes, output of the engine was bumped to 600 HP (441 kW) and 652 Nm (481 lb-ft) of torque.

After taking care of the motor, Nismo fitted the GT-R with new springs and bespoke Bilstein dampers, as well as specially developed Dunlop tires. There's also a hollow rear anti-roll bar and new links for the front double wishbone suspension. On the outside it wears an aero kit and rides on GT500 racecar-derived six-spoke black alloys.

Nissan says the Nismo-tuned GT-R will reach Japanese dealerships next February. Several months later it will go on sale in United States and Europe.
