Nissan has delivered the first GT-R NISMO in the United Kingdom.

In order to celebrate the event, Nissan took owner Nick Coombes to the Thruxton Circuit where he received a one-to-one track tutorial by Nismo racing driver Jann Mardenborough.

According to Coombes "Once you’ve owned a GT-R nothing else will do. This is my third GT-R and as soon as I knew the GT-R Nismo was being made I knew I had to have one.”

As a refresher, 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 lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:08.679.

Unfortunately, only 24 GT-R NISMOs will be imported in the United Kingdom and all of them have already been sold.
