consecutive championship titles at Super GT racing series in 2011 and 2012, the
Nissan GT500 GT-R is a car which takes the fundamentals of locomotion - “run,
turn, stop”, and refines them to their utmost peak, crafting one of the most
powerful racing-spec machines available. The 2013 spec model further optimises
engine response and torque specifications, increasing fuel economy for even
greater competitive power. Finally, the GT-R is armed with Nissan’s proprietary
air conditioning system, developed by the company that knows GT racing better
than anyone else. The GT500 GT-R is powered by a VRH34B engine that represents
the ultimate expression of NISMO and GT-R. The 3.4-litre V8 engine develops
power in excess of 523 bhp and more than 440Nm of torque. The car falls within
the regulated weight of 1100kg. The specially developed race version of Nissan
GT-R boasts the very best in design and aerodynamics. The rear end of the
vehicle has been designed to maintain extreme levels of downforce while
drastically cutting down drag. The distinctive “shark teeth” rear design and
modified underbody has proved to be a dynamic breakthrough for the GT-R. Throughout
the season, Nissan and NISMO work to maximize not only the engine's output, but
also its flexibility by modifying response and torque characteristics to match
the layouts of different racetracks. Fuel efficiency is also addressed by decreasing
friction within the moving components of the drivetrain.
