Nissan’s awesome ‘N-Attack’ GT-R is going to SEMA
Special, Nürburgring-honed GT-R to be put on sale in the States. You need it
With a few tweaks, and in the hands of Michael Krumm, the Nissan GT-R Nismo is capable of recording a 7min 8sec lap of the Nürburgring. This makes it impossibly fast.
Now Nissan will debut this impossibly fast GT-R Nismo-with-a-few-tweaks at next month’s SEMA show – the first time in the US, then – ahead of offering both the pack and the full car for sale for 2016.
Compared to the ‘standard’ Nissan GT-R Nismo, the N-Attack – N stands for Nürburgring, obviously – gets special aero, upgraded suspension that can “handle a punishing road surface full of undulations and turbulent fluctuations”, and a set of proper bucket seats. But no Michael Krumm. Not even as an option.
The 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 is included, in case you’re worried, as are the GT-R’s body, doors, wheels and astonishing ability to bend the fabric of time. You’ll no doubt remember its stats: 591bhp, 481lb ft, 0-62mph in around 2.5 seconds and much g-force.
Steve Millen Sportsparts will be the US’s official installer and dealer for the car, Steve being a treasured member of the Nismo fraternity: he was a Nissan racing driver who won in his ‘famous’ tricolor 300ZX.
Want to see it up close? The N-Attack be showcased on Nissan’s SEMA stand from 3 November. With such potency from the R35 GT-R, what does Nissan have planned for its successor? A ‘Moon Attack’ version?
