YOKOHAMA, Japan (November 19, 2013) - Records fall and dreams come true with the debut of the Nissan GT-R Nismo. This race-oriented model delivers "factory tuned" supercar dynamics with revolutionary enhanced aerodynamics and ultra-precise handling.

Juke-R's 485bhp 3.8l V6 twin turbo engine propels the car from a standing start to 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, before continuing on to a top speed of 257km/h.

Sometimes it's more satisfying to bring a project to a slow boil for a chance to savour its full flavour, rather than to slap everything together quickly, particularly if this might result in compromise to the ultimate quality of the end-result.

Since our last update, most of the parts have arrived and in the meantime, 'Godzilla' has been further stripped, whipped, poked, prodded, used and abused all ways to Sunday. The mechanicals are at Espace while the shell has been primed and prepped for paint at TG2K Spray Painting Centre.
