2022 Nissan GTR Nismo R35

In 1936, a chequered flag was first raised for a GT-R NISMO ancestor.  Nissan's racing knowledge is put to use in the NISMO badge to produce unrivalled on-road thrills. The 2022 GT-R NISMO's engine is a fanatically tuned twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 600-horsepower engine with 481 lb-ft of torque, powered by high-capacity turbos developed for the Nissan GT3 racing programme.

Reshaped turbo vanes for faster spool-up and increased response, as well as a more aggressive power delivery across the rpm range, are among the advancements from the Nissan GT3 racing programme. They're 14.5 percent lighter and 20 percent faster to spool up, thereby eliminating turbo-lag. The GT-R Nismo will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 205 mph helped along with it's upgraded dual-clutch six-speed transmission.

To deal with the speed, Nissan engineers updated the brakes to Brembo ceramics and a pan-worrying 410mm diameter. Larger rotors and pads, as well as a more stiff calliper, are used on the GT-R NISMO, which are painted with an unique paint that will not change colour even at temperatures above 1800 degrees. The brake system's lighter weight also reduces unsprung weight, improving handling and steering response.

Outside, the Nissan retains its previous silhouette, but more of it has been cut and moulded to optimise airflow: vents above the front wheels reduce turbulence, allowing the GT-R NISMO to react to steering input more rapidly. The GT3 racing programme inspired the aerodynamic vents, helping increase downforce. The carbon fibre bonnet lowers the total centre of gravity, increases front-to-rear weight distribution, and improves cornering turn-in by reducing weight over the vehicle's nose.

The roof made of carbon fibre Reduces the weight, lowering the centre of gravity of the GT-R NISMO, improving stability, increasing cornering grip, and delivering flatter cornering. In comparison to the 2020 GT-R NISMO, the increased use of carbonfibre saves slightly under 30kg.

Despite its weight of 1703kg, the GT-R promotes and frequently requires fingertip handling, thanks to the 55/45 weight distribution, which helps the front axle bite hard. The suspension on the Nissan GT-R NISMO has been optimised for outstanding agility and handling finesse without sacrificing refinement. The front and rear suspension springs and custom-developed Bilstein® DampTronic® dampers have been fine-tuned to give superb grip levels and progressive handling response at the limit.
