why don't the new GT3 models have the V motion grill a la the Super GT car?

thats a good question.

 

Its because  of the development cycle of the  GT3 program.  an all new GT3 will debut next year.   the  super GT car had aero changes due to 2017  rules so it was an opportunity to restyle the car to match the road car.  This GT3 bodywork wise is mostly a carry over from 2015 when they adopted the NISMO road car front and rear. development of the 2018 GT3 is currently underway according to Nissan.

So underneath all the body work are these cars true MY 2017 cars or just called that in namesake but are really, say, 2015 gt3 cars

im fairly certain it is indeed the latest chassis and engine year but they are using the front fascia that was introduced in 2015.  I think this year is more of an in between year as far as development goes and why their GT3 efforts across the globe are dialed back just a bit

Ahhh thanks for clearing that up. Makes sense. Hopefully they have lots of success in blancpain and Pirelli wc this year. I'm excited for how the new 17 front will look in gtr3 race aero trim.
