The price makes it more expensive than a Porsche 911 Turbo S which is available with a price tag of £145,773. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS which is a track car will cost £131,296 in the UK.

The GT-R Nismo has new grille and bumper design from its predecessor. One big difference is that it has parts which are made from carbon-fibre and generate greater downforce than any other Nissan road car ever.

To make sure the GT-R is all new, the Nismo version gets upgraded shock absorbers, springs and stabilizers. All of this is combined with extra downforce Nissan says it’s better to drive than ever.

All of this has increased cornering performance by nearly 2 per cent according to Nissan. You can adjust the settings to suit you as well, using an adaptive damper system.

Although it has all these changes, but the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 produces 592bhp at 6,800rpm and 652Nm of torque from 3,600rpm to 5,600rpm.

Nismo’s interior has been upgraded too with a redesigned dashboard, steering wheel and center armrest which utilizes Alcantara. It also has a larger 8-inch display screen on the dash.
