2013 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 - 1

The 2013 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 has been released by the Japanese car maker’s motorsport division, with orders for the race car now underway.

Following the recent unveiling of the road-going 2013 Nissan GT-R (R35), the track-only Nismo GT3 version brings with it advances from Nissan’s years of racing in the GT category, as well as track testing and customer feedback.

Improvements to engine components, aerodynamics, braking systems, suspension settings and gear ratios have all combined to enhance the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3’s competitiveness and performance.

New camshaft timing, new and larger front aerodynamic canards, and a massive repositioned rear wing combine with the car’s 1300kg kerb weight, 405kW/637Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine, and super-wide 18×13-inch wheels to increase downforce and improve vehicle balance.

The best bit? The Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 is being manufactured on demand, with customers in Japan, Asia, North America, South America, and Oceania already checking their wallets for the necessary 35,000,000 yen ($417,240).


Nissan stresses that unfortunately, as the Nismo GT3 is a racing car, “it cannot be used on public roads or be registered for such a license”.

If that seems a little pricey, the 404kW/628Nm 2013 Nissan GT-R road car is due to launch in Australia in February.

    that would be sweet if it was racing with the v8 supercar boys.

      It’d be awesome if an owner would challenge a v8 supercar team to an unofficial race.

        At Phillip island this year the Top GT3 cars where around 1sec faster than a V8Supercar but at the Adelaide Steet curcuit the V8Supercar was around 1.5sec faster that the GT3 cars, So it could be a very close race depending on the curcuit..

          And ultimately, more exciting to watch than the regular supercar races where people basically only race two different cars.

    What a statement, forget about colour coding we just leave the front and rear bumpbers unpainted, true fans will lap it up regardless ” ain’t that the truth” sadly though this true fan can’t afford even the production model.. Hello Lord, anyone listening up there? a little help here..
