Exactly how much power does the new 2017 Nissan Nismo GT-R make? We will show you

During our few days with the Nismo R35 GT-R, we were able to do a number of tests, including throwing it on the dyno to see exactly how much power it put out, and how much more power it offers than the "non-Nismo" standard version from the same year. We'll cover the latter test in a future article, where we tested everything from R32/R33/R34 and R35 GT-Rs, so keep an eye out for that!
