The GT-R Nismo GT3 is basically a stripped-out, road-going GT-R that's been fitted with a full roll cage, fully adjustable suspension, extra cooling ducts and an aggressive aerodynamics package. Powering it is a 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo engine that's based on the standard road car and which puts out over 520hp. Paired to it is a six-speed transaxle that drives the rear wheels and is activated by a semi-automatic paddle-shift system.

Designed with customers in mind, drivability has been an important factor in the new car's development program. Therefore, as well as featuring a chassis that inspires confidence, the GT-R Nismo GT3's suspension setup and driver controls can easily be adjusted to suit a range of preferences.

According to Nissan, sales and customer support for the GT-R Nismo GT3 will be implemented by Nismo for Japan, Asia, North America, South America and Oceania, while JRM will cover Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
