Video: Nissan GT-R crashes during race
The new R35 GT-R has already dominated the first two rounds of the JGTC but the car used for competition is considerably different to the production model – for one it misses out on the sophisticated ATTESA-ETS AWD system. Virtually every component of the road going car has been improved or replaced, including the potent twin-turbo V6. The engine was still too new for race teams so instead they stuck with an older 4.5L natuarally aspirated V8. The car also sports a six-speed sequential transaxle and RWD layout as per the rules of the series.
