2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO With N-Attack Package Tested At Fuji Speedway: Video
Learn The Secrets Of The Nissan GT-R NISMO From Its 'Ring-Tuning Expert: Video
The 2015 Nissan GT- R NISMO is one of the fastest cars ever produced, having set an incredible 7:08.679 Nürburgring lap time at the hands of racing driver Michael Krumm. However, to achieve that time, Krumm’s GT-R NISMO was fitted with some special parts that don’t come on the stock version.
Those special parts are still being developed for production, as Nissan details in the video above. They will be grouped in an optional package called the NISMO N-Attack Package. The individual upgrades are substantial and focus on three main areas: aerodynamics, weight and suspension.
Specific items include four-way adjustable Öhlins shocks, stiffer stabilizer bars, less fade resistant brake pads, limited-slip differentials front and rear, carbon fiber aero pieces, custom piping for the engine’s intercooler, and unique ECU tuning. To help save weight, the package includes a carbon fiber rear bulkhead and new Recaro buckets with carbon frames. Nissan is planning much more but can’t confirm what will be included until testing is completed.
The automaker has confirmed that its 2015 GT-R NISMO will cost $151,585 including a $1,595 destination charge. Pricing of the NISMO N-Attack Package should be revealed closer to the GT-R NISMO’s launch this summer, but we can expect a hefty slug given the number of upgrades and the performance they deliver.
Nissan is not alone in offering a dedicated performance package for one its cars. The current production car record holder for a Nürburgring lap, the Porsche 918 Spyder, required a special package when setting its time. Other cars with similar packages include the Lexus LFA (Nürburgring Package) and Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (Z51 Package).
