2014 Nissan GT-R NISMO Development Story
REVEALED: NISSAN GT-R NISMO
-World premiere of race-inspired version of Nissan's legendary GT-R
-600hp (441kw) for blistering performance
-Advanced aerodynamics generating additional 100kg of downforce at 300km/h
(186mph) for exceptional road-holding
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. The Nissan GT-R is already established as one
of the best performing supercars in the automotive sphere, and now Nissan
has drawn on decades of racing experience gathered by Nismo, the brand's
motorsport specialists, to develop the ultimate Nissan GT-R.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo features exclusive styling that embraces the
longstanding racing philosophy of form following function. It has numerous
motorsports-inspired technologies to enhance the car's performance through
optimised aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain, creating a well-balanced
machine that is at home on both the road and track.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available in Japan in late February 2014,
U.S. and Europe later in 2014.
Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn says this is the fastest Nissan GT-R ever. "With a
7:08.679 lap time, we can authoritatively say that the Nissan GT-R Nismo*
holds the volume production car lap record at the Nürburgring
Nordschliefe, which is the gold standard of high performance achievement."
Nissan GT-R Nismo Overview - Flagship of the Nismo lineup
1. Mechanical Features
Nissan GT-R Nismo employs innovation, uncompromising engineering and
motorsports-inspired technologies to achieve new levels of power, speed and
-Under the hood, the 3.8-litre V6 VR38DETT engine benefits from the
know-how that Nismo has gained from participating in such events as the
world-renowned Nürburgring 24 hour race. Engine power has risen and is now
rated at 600hp (441kw) and 481 lb ft (652 Nm) of torque.
-New high-flow, large diameter turbochargers, which are used for GT3 racing,
improve breathing, while optimised individual ignition timing control for
each cylinder and upgraded fuel pump improve combustion.
-The suspension setup,is inspired by that of the Nismo racing GT-R and
tuned for stunning agility, road-holding and handling finesse, without
-The springs and custom-developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers in the front
and rear suspension are specially tuned to deliver exceptional grip levels
and progressive handling response at the limit. Three suspension modes can
be selected: Comfort, Normal and R, for circuit applications.
-Exclusive Nismo tyres - developed by Dunlop - exhibit outstanding grip and
handling characteristics. Front: 255/40 ZRF20; rear 285/35 ZRF20.
-Specially-developed links fitted to the front double wishbone suspension
increase castor trail to optimise wheel position during high-G cornering
and improve straight-line and cornering stability. Additionally, large
high-rigidity bolts are used to increase stiffness of the wheel-hub
-To minimize body-roll during cornering and changes of direction, the
Nissan GT-R Nismo features a 17.3 mm hollow rear anti-roll bar which raises
roll stiffness while reducing weight.
-Increased rigidity in the bodyshell is achieved using adhesive bonding in
addition to spot welding leading to precise suspension response under
extreme load, the Nismo "factory tuned" enhancement.
2. Exterior design - Exclusive styling with improved aerodynamics
-Using the latest Computational Fluid Dynamic simulation techniques to
analyse airflow, Nismo has developed an aero package that improves
road-holding, minimises the negative impact of drag, while giving the car a
menacing and muscular appearance.
-Together, the front bumper, engine undercover strake and carbon rear
spoiler increase downforce, lowering the centre of gravity and generating
an additional 100kg (at 300km/h) compared to the freshly updated 2014 GT-R
model. The car's aerodynamic characteristics are tuned to ensure the
downforce is equally spread front to rear at all speeds for progressive
handling characteristics. A widened front bumper configuration and
elongated yet tapered rear bumper design keep the drag to Cd 0.26, the same
as that of 2014 Nissan GT-R.
-The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available in five body colors: Brilliant
White Pearl, Meteor Flake Pearl Black, Ultimate Metallic Silver and Vibrant
Red. And unique to the GT-R Nismo model, a Dark Matte Grey accentuates the
car's imposing exterior muscularity.
-The GT-R Nismo's black 6-spoke wheels are inspired by Nissan's legendary
GT500 race car.

2013 Nissan Juke Nismo Review and Road Test
Let's get one thing sorted. The picture above is not, I repeat not, the
Juke that Nissan has been teasing. Instead, this is the Nismo treated Juke
we saw at the Chicago Auto Show in February. If you're disappointed, or if
the unusual confluence of shapes that is the Juke has made you throw up a
little in your mouth, don't watch.
Calling the Juke's styling "not everyone's cup of tea" (as one person I met
put it) or even "polarizing" hardly begins to describe what's going on
here. My week with Nissan's smallest crossover in America was filled with
awkward stares, gaping mouths and looks of revulsion. But that's not the
whole story. For every 10 people that wanted to run the Juke out-of-town
like villagers wielding pitchforks, there were two or three that thought it
was fantastic looking. No, cross that, they wanted to bear the Juke's
children. That's how far they went. This makes the Juke the most polarizing
car design I have seen. Yes, I'm including the unholy Aztec and Rendezvous.
However you feel about the Juke's design, you have to admit it took some
brass balls to design it, produce it, and then keep selling it.
Because the base Juke wears a starting MSRP of $18,990, my expectations
were low. If you keep your expectations at a similarly realistic level,
you'll be pleasantly surprised. For $22,990 the Nismo version adds heavily
bolstered Alcantara sport seats, a leather and Alcantara wrapped steering
wheel, center arm rest, red tachometer, plenty of Nismo badges and
red-stitching galore. Unfortunately, the standard hard plastic dashboard
and the world's least attractive headliner remain. Seriously, this has to
be the same material the trunk liner in a Versa is crafted from, how much
would it have cost for something out of the Altima? On the flip side, you
have to keep reminding yourself that 27-large is as expensive as any Juke
gets and the Nismo tops out at $26,460 with navigation, the CVT and AWD.
That's well below the average new car transaction price in America.
The Alcantara thrones are some of the most attractive (and best bolstered)
seats you can find for under $30,000, but they still ride on the same 6-way
manual driver's and 4-way passenger's seat frames as the regular Juke. This
means the range of motion is limited and lumbar support is non-existent.
Still, one must have perspective and you'll find the same situation in most
cars this price. I was disappointed to find that the Juke's steering wheel
doesn't telescope making it hard for me to find an idea driving position.
Before the Juke arrived I had spent a week in the 2013 BMW X6M (our reviews
are obviously out of order). Having the Nismo and an X6M back to back may
sound like a real let down, but there's another side. Obviously the Juke
doesn't handle or accelerate like an M, but there is something of the
personality that struck me. No, I'm not just talking about the X6 being
similarly polarizing in the style department, I'm talking on the road
personality. They are similarly "eager." In this way, the Juke reminded me
of a small dog that thinks it's a big dog. It even has a chihuahua's eyes.
Is that good or bad? Good seeing as the Juke costs about 1/4th the price. I
managed a 7.45 second 0-60 dash in the 6-speed manual model, let's just say
the X6M didn't get there in 1/4th the time.
It gets a bit more complicated. You see, the Juke is two kinds of animal.
If you get the 6-speed manual transmission you get plenty of torque steer,
slick shifts and a more engaging ride. (And for some reason torque steer
makes me smile when it's on a small-scale like this.) If you get the AWD
Nismo, you're stuck with Nissan's CVT. I'm no CVT hater but even I have to
admit the CVT dulls the Juke's personality. On the flip side, the torque
vectoring AWD system makes the CVT/AWD Nismo the faster car on the track by a reasonable
margin. If you have an oddly shaped place in your heart for Nissan's
over-styled crossover, you have a difficult decision on your hands. Either
way the Juke is destined to be one of the rarer vehicles on American roads
and I get the impression that's just how lovers and haters of the Juke like

Roadfly.com - 2011 Nissan Juke Road Test & Review
In 2011, Nissan introduced an all-new mini-crossover into its lineup of
stellar cars: The Nissan Juke. With a highly original design, awesome
standard options, and amazing gas mileage, the Juke is a tight little
The Juke's engine is a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine that gets
188 horsepower and
177 pound-feet of torque, still managing to get 25 mpg in the city and 30
mpg on the highway, along with 0-60 times in less than 7 seconds. Pretty
impressive for a SUV that only costs roughly $24,000 (msrp).
Altogether, the Juke is a great SUV for its price, offering a lot of value
and efficiency and driving experience for your dollar. Buyers around the
world have been purchasing the Juke at breakneck pace, and Nissan can
barely keep up with the demand for this hot new ride.
