There’s no word yet on top speed, although the automaker confirmed that the GT-R NISMO recently lapped the full Nürburgring-Nordschliefe in Germany with a record time thanks to its factory racing driver Michael Krumm.
That time was a 7:08.679, which Nissan boasts is the record for a mass-produced car. The record for a production car however is still held by Porsche’s much more powerful 918 Spyder, which set a time of 6:57.
Sales of the GT-R NISMO will commence in the first quarter of 2014. Pricing and U.S. specifications will be announced closer to launch so stay tuned for more. In the meantime, head over to our 2015 Nissan GT-R full review pages at The Car Connection for more production details as they’re available.
