Nissan has delivered the first 2015 GT-R Nismo in the United States.

Bought by Matt McCulloh, the co-founder of the North American GT-R Owners Club (NAGTROC), the GT-R Nismo a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 600 bhp (447 kW) and 481 lb-ft (651 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enabled the car to set a Nürburgring lap time of 7:08.679.

According to McCulloh, "The GT-R NISMO has more than fulfilled my wildest expectations. Just looking at this car – it to me is the quintessential version of the GT-R that I have always longed for."

Since McCulloh is heavily involved in the GT-R community, Nissan executives were on hand to personally deliver the car to him. The company also arranged a garage makeover that apparently included a circular race track floor graphic and an assortment of Craftsman gear.
