Key to the car’s performance is a boost in output, with the final numbers registering at 600 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, up from the regular model’s 545 hp and 463 lb-ft. However, more power is not the end of the story as downforce, suspension updates and brake performance are also crucial in achieving the car’s benchmarks. Unfortunately, apart from the GT-R NISMO’s Nürburgring lap time, we still don’t have any official benchmarks to report on.
We should know more when sales of the 2015 GT-R NISMO commence this spring. In the meantime, check out our first drive report for some of our driving impressions.
