Nissan GT-R Nismo to Do 0-60 mph in Two Seconds

Since its introduction in 2008, the Nissan GT-R has seen a steady increase of power and price almost every year, but the big news for the next-gen supercar might be an increase in production.

Newly appointed GT-R chief engineer Kinishi Tanuma said Nissan needs “more of a volume car.” A key limiting factor in the GT-R’s production is its hand-built engine. Currently, only four people are qualified to build the GT-R’s twin-turbo V6, but Tanuma says a fifth is in training. Even if production numbers are raised, Nissan also wants to add more quality and value into the GT-R. There is still no word as to what kind of timeframe Nissan is looking to start pumping out more GT-Rs, but with a new Nismo model rumored to be bringing a 2-second 0-60 time, demand is sure to be on the rise.

The GT-R Nismo will be both significantly lighter and more powerful than lesser Godzillas. The most common power figure being circulated seems to be 570 horsepower or more, compared to 545hp for the current non-Nismo GT-Rs. Plus there will be exterior and interior tweaks (i.e. different spoilers, stripes, new seats, etc.) to make this extra-special Japanese supercar easy to spot. The GT-R Nismo is being developed by U.K.-based Williams Advanced Engineering.
