TAMPA, FL, March 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Usain Bolt, Jamaican sprinter and world's fastest man, (1) was on hand to help launch the 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO at the Los Angeles Auto Show. And as fast as he is, he couldn't compete with the 600 hp produced under the hood of the fastest GT-R ever built. (2)
NISMO is Nissan's team of motorsports specialists, and they've created the ultimate GT-R for 2015. The car will be on sale in the US -- and at Tampa dealerships -- later in 2014. (2) In the meantime, there are plenty of impressive stats to relish.
The 3.8-liter V6 starts as the same engine under the hood of every GT-R. However, this version has high flow, large diameter turbochargers and individual ignition timing control for each cylinder, plus an upgraded fuel pump, which all adds up to 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. (2) NISMO's racing experience led the team to develop aerodynamics for the GT-R that generate an additional 100 kg of downforce at 300 km/h (that's 186 mph). (2)
The chassis has to handle all that power without shaking to pieces, which means both adhesive bonding and spot welding are used to increase rigidity for precise handling. The springs and custom Bilstein DampTronic dampers are tuned to maximize grip without compromising comfort. There are also three suspension modes so Tampa Nissan drivers can select the most appropriate for wherever they are: Comfort, Normal, and R for the track. (2) When the GT-R NISMO becomes available later this year, test these modes -- safely -- for yourself at Ferman Nissan of Tampa.
