After making it’s Super Taikyu debut and track debuts in 2010, Nismo has finally put the finishing touches on the production model Nissan Nismo GT-R RC race car. Coinciding with Tokyo Auto Salon 2011, the car is now officially available for customers to buy both in and outside Japan.

The NISSAN NISMO GT-R RC is the latest entry to the RC (Racing Competition) line of high performance, production model race cars developed and outfitted by NISMO. It’s built up from the world renowned, top performance NISSAN GT-R (R35) road car. The body has been lightened, fitted for slick tires and equipped with safety equipment to ready it for competition use. During the car’s development, it was entered in the 2010 SUPER TAIKYU Round 4 at Fuji, where it confirmed its high performance, reliability and durability.

Fitted with the same VR38DETT and GR6 transmission that powers the road car, Nismo aren’t giving the exact power/torque specifications away except to say that they exceed 485ps and exceeds 60 kg/m of torque. We’ve seen the GT-R RC quite a few times on here before so the special aero, carbon and race preparations are certainly not new to you.

What is news though is the price, Nismo will build you a GT-R RC to order for 20,790,000 yen or around $250k USD for a circuit ready race car.

Yes. its 357 kw. 478 hp. However, that number is just a complete throwaway number. It is most certainly over 478 hp, as the stock cars are over 478.

The car will be just fast enough, have enough hp to beat whatever it is racing against in ST1.

In 2005, we had Nismo build us a RB26, Super Taikyu spec. At ~ 1 bar it did 450 hp at the engine. For racing though, they had them set to about 1.5 bar. We never chassis dynoed at 1.0 bar, but at 1.5 we did right around 450 whp. Which sadly was about 100 whp low for World Challenge then.

There are two GT3 race cars. The GT3 RSR and the GT3 Cup.

This GT-R RC is closer to a stock car, so its more like the GT3 cup, which is about a $213,000 car. http://www.caranddri..._cup-auto_shows

The GT3 RSR is a GT3 car- and it is the $400,000 car. http://www.porsche.c...rs/911gt3r-997/

Don't judge this car by hp output. Power on these cars are completely different to our street cars.
Last time at Big Willow, a GT3 RSR blew my doors off on the straights, despite my car was running about 700hp at that moment. I didn't expect that.

Was it an RSR or a cup car? The RSR's are the expensive ones. The same that you see in ALMS. The cups are more like a World Challenge spec car.

Both are listed at about 2600 lbs - 450hp or 480 hp.

In Japan it would be in ST1. Here in the states it would be closer to a cup car/ World Challenge spec.

RSR is fast. Very fast. If you just look at the specs, it won't tell you how much faster the RSR is over the Cup car.

At Road Atlanta, fastest qualifying RSR for the Petit Le Mans last year ran a 1:20.768.
Fastest GT3 Cup car ran a 1:25.1 in qualifying. That is a huge difference in laptime.

Best race lap for the RSR was 1:21.007, while best race lap for a GT3 cup was 1:25.654, so same difference in lap time more or less.

So how fast does a GT-R run at Road Atlanta?

So does this means if I get the brake rotors and wheels and tires on this RC version to my stock GTR then Nissan would void my warranty too?

I don't want to know because I highly doubt it would be worth the money on these brake rotors. As for the wheels they are just Volk G2's.... probably the cheapest of them all. Which makes me wonder why the Black Edition/Spec V wheels would cost more? LOL......

The wheels would be normal pricing, the expensive thing would be the brake calipers.

Normal meaning... those Volk Racing G2's thats on the RC is actually the same wheels we can buy at most Tuner shops here in US. However, the "abnormal" part would be it's Braking system. Caliper/brake rotors, shocks, etc
