Another new Nissan GT-R? No. This one’s a Nismo, not a Nissan. A product of Nissan’s performance and racing department, not the mass market road car division. You’re the internet, therefore you understand this difference already, although I have to say I’m constantly surprised that any GT-R falls under the remit of the same bunch that’s also responsible for the Pulsar, X-Trail and Qashqai. Nismo stands for Nissan Motorsport, right? Correct. Founded in 1984, it’s the in-house outfit responsible for taking the GT-R GT racing, both domestically and internationally, and a couple of years back it had a stab at a full-house LMP1 car (the ill-fated, soon swept under the carpet GT-R LM). It does parts for the Juke. It does aftermarket bits, too. And it created this car. It’s not the first R35 Nismo GT-R, of course, merely a replacement for the existing model, but Nismo likes to keep itself busy. OK, so what’s new?
