Nissan GT-R Nismo 2020: tecnologia e prestazioni senza compromessi
The 2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo is the culmination of two of Nissan's most important nameplates: GT-R – representing 50 years of history, pedigree, success in racing and a global fan following – and Nismo, NISsan MOtorsports International, in-house tuning arm that pursues performance at a maniacal level by perfecting the smallest of details.
True to what Nismo stands for, the 2020 GT-R NISMO is a more extreme, track-oriented version of the GT-R.
New, race-proven turbochargers, improved gearbox shift control, lighter components, reduced overall mass and upgrades to the brakes, wheels and tires contribute to a 2.5-second reduction in lap time around Nissan's development track, not to mention an improvement of the GT-R's inherent high speed stability, even at speeds of up to 300 kph.
The constant need to evolve and fine-tune – this is kaizen. Kaizen is at the heart of the GT-R Nismo, a team wide mindset that has pushed the men and women behind this car to challenge themselves each step of the way.
Like in racing, precision is the key to performance. Each VR38DETT is hand-assembled from beginning to end in a special clean room by master technicians known as takumi. This elite few assemble the complex powerplant with the passion and precision of a true craftsman.
Just as a great artist signs their work, so do the takumi, with a special aluminum name plate on the front of each engine that meets their standard.
