2018 Nissan GTR GT3 on sale to Privateer Racers for $550K



 
 
 
 
Nissan Motorsport International Co., Ltd. (NISMO) is releasing its 2018 model of the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, which is based on the Nissan GT-R (R35) NISMO and conforms to FIA GT3 regulations. (Build-to-order / delivery to begin from around January 2019)
NISMO launched the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 in 2012 and has been supplying it to customers around the world including in Japan, Europe, America, China, and Australia. 
The car accumulated several achievements including taking the championship titles in the SUPER GT GT300 class and the Blancpain Endurance Series (currently the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup), along with overall victory in the Bathurst 12 Hour (Australia) in 2015.
 
The 2018 model that is set for release reflects significant advances made on the base vehicle Nissan GT-R(R35) NISMO, and the lessons learned from accumulated actual race data since the 2015 model was released. 
NISMO aimed to create a vehicle that took advantage of all of the GT-R's strengths and was capable of running with stability and speed at any circuit and on any brand of tire. 
Specifically, weight distribution has been optimized and the center of gravity lowered by mounting the engine 150mm further back and lower than in the 2015 model. At the same time, the front and rear suspension, along with the cross member have been newly designed to improve the vehicle dynamics.
In addition to vigorous tests carried out in Japan and overseas since April of last year, participation in several series, in cooperation with NISMO's official partner teams this season, has seen the car run a total of approximately 30,000km. 
This new vehicle has enhanced competitiveness through improvements in its fundamental performance, at the same time, the new model is easy to handle for both professional and gentleman drivers, and offers significant reliability.

  • Lowered center of gravity and optimized weight distribution through a revision of the vehicle package

so like anyone who doesnt want one could buy one for me that would be great! 

You roll up to a gas station in that... Mmmmm

pop and bang with out being a poser

think always evolving/AIM autosport will be getting their hands on one (or more) of these and return to PWC?

God damn :)  :bounce:  :dance:

It is sort of what the Porsche GT3rs looks like..............It only costs 220,000.00

It is what our GTR track edition should look like .......................

Nissan just never got the  MEMO............COPY THE PORSCHE PLAY BOOK TO WIN................

this is more like buying a  Porsche GT3 Cup than a RS   but yeah the  Cup costs like  213K vs 550K for the GTR

the GT3 cup car is not an actual GT3, I thought... I think these are the cars that run in GT Cup class in PWC, and the Porsche one make races.

the actual GT3 spec porsches would be the 911 GT3 R

yup I think the cup cars run in  a porsche only series that accompanies the  Formula 1. Did they run IMSA too as 997s? or was that just the R?     yeah the  R is more the apples to apples version as its built to a certain GT3 Spec.  thats why this GTR GT3 has less power than say the road version of the NISMO.  im just saying  the  GT3 cup is a non road legal version so its more similar to what nissan is offering than the RS which is a road car.

 

 

just looked it up and the 911 GT3 R is  $487K. so I guess that is what should be compared with the GT3 GTR not the 213K Cup car

This is a GT3 RS interior

Let's go back to that GTR GT3

Where exactly do you see the similarities?

I assume this is similar to the Viper GT3-R that was offered for $460k? If so price seems about right.

this thing belongs in a museum

Don't get me wrong......I still have my 09 GTR ............ I just wish Nissan had cared at all about road racers and given us a  TRUE TRACK EDITION............

My son has a 2018 GT-3 and an RS on order............. It would cost 50,000.00 to make a stock GTR run with an RS for any longer than 3 laps etc...................

We could have had it all if Nissan had a  BRAIN IN THE GTR PADDOCK..............

That's not a 991 RS interior....

Nice, but I think I will keep my $550K in the bank!

 

 

That's not a 991 RS interior....

 

 

Because the 991 RS interior is drastically different and is completely stripped out to the point of the entire dashboard being removed and equipment residing where the passenger seat would be, right? No need to answer, that was a rhetorical question. 

Lol....That GT3 RS interior looks like Hyundai designed a race car compared to the GTR GT3 race car...

So much that isn't needed in that Porsche.....I'm positive that the GT3 RS would be a better daily driver and more reliable though..

Track edition GTR:

 

Camber adjustment arms ($1200)

NON drilled rotors (shouldn't cost more)

Upgraded pads ($500 up charge)

SRF fluid ($100)

Roll bar ($3000???)

6 point harness ($1000)

upgraded sway bars $500 (up charge)

transmission cooler ($2500) 

Upgraded wing and canards (splitter optional) ($2500) 

19" rims (for Hoosiers) (shouldn't cost more) 

Proper Racing seats ($3000)

 

That is what the GTR needs for the track IMHO. It should cost about $15000 more and if installed at factory we'd all save money on the installs especially with roll bars & the transmission cooler. 

 

Put this together Nissan and say goodbye to track records at the ring for ANY production car. 

 

Tell me where I am wrong? 

 

THE END. 

so sick!  Looks like Dry Sump and V-Mount FMIC with CF piping.  Motec M150?  :clap: :thumbsup:
