2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO put to the test

BERLIN – Nissan recently invited members of the media to EuroSpeedway Lausitz, a race track in Germany and the surrounding environs, to accomplish one goal: experience the precision engineering of the new 2020 GT-R NISMO in the region that highlights it best.

There are many incredible driving locations around the world, but only in Germany does a driver find the combination of high-speed road and track experiences that truly showcases the GT-R NISMO’s “absolute total racing performance.”

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 Co., Nissan’s 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 that has matured through rigorous refinements, and become sharper and more rewarding as a street car.

The 2020 GT-R NISMO is about total balance. 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 186 mph (300 kph). Here’s how Nissan achieved this remarkable improvement.
