    Default GT-R Racer



    The twin-turbocharged V-6 has been completely reengineered and rebuilt.

    It certainly didn't take Nismo long to turn around a race-car version of the recently unveiled Nissan GT-R. This test mule was spotted at Suzuka, driven by factory drivers Satoshi Motoyama, Michael Krumm and Tsugio Matsuda. The car is being developed for the 2008 Super GT Series, where the GT-R will replace the 350Z in the GT500 class. Although these cars are allowed to produce only 500 bhp (the stock GT-R puts out 480), the twin-turbocharged V-6 has been completely reengineered and rebuilt. There's a slight chance a version of this car will make it to Le Mans in the future.

    "The test went well without any problems," said Nismo Super GT team director Yoshitaka Iijima. "We obtained positive feedback on the car's potential from the drivers. We are aware of the Nissan GT-R's popularity and racing heritage. We will make our best effort to win the championship next year."

    Maybe a slightly detuned version of the reworked motor will find its way into another GT-R Z-Tune.
