Nissan throws back curtain on extreme iteration of 2017 GT-R supercar
Company's most exclusive model includes a 600 horsepower turbocharged 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 engine and will sell for US$174,990
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Nissan has unveiled the latest version of its GT-R supercar.
Throwing back the curtain on the most extreme iteration of the high-end performance vehicle over the weekend, the Japanese automaker said the 2017 GT-R Nismo will retail for US$174,990.
The Nismo made its debut last year at Germany’s Nürburgring race course, but has now been fine-tuned to hit the streets of North America with a regular—albeit an exclusive group—of drivers behind the wheel. The company said it is available in “very limited” numbers in North America.
The latest version of the supercar’s high-capacity turbocharged 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 engine houses 600 horsepower and operates with a transaxle all-wheel drive system. Nissan said the Nismo also comes standard with optimized individual ignition timing control for each cylinder and a lightweight titanium exhaust system.
Among its other top-end features, the vehicle includes carbon fiber front and rear bumpers, a handmade dry carbon rear spoiler and a new interior with an 8-inch touch panel monitor.
