The Nissan GT-R will get a Nismo version

We suspected that sooner or later Nissan's Motorsport division (Nismo) was going to create a more powerful version of the GT-R, but only now, Nissan's vice-president Andy Palmer confirmed this when he said he recently tested the prototype in Japan, adding that it is the fastest GT-R ever.

Andy Palmer also said, "The majority of the exterior changes are aero and downforce related" and "The production car record at the Nurburgring is the gold standard, and we expect to lower that".If this happens to be true, Nissan's Nismo race team should take part of the credit, since they are giving input on the development of this new version.

Unfortunately, he didn't disclose anything else, so we to turn our attention to the rumors floating in the web. They say the Nissan GT-R Nismo will have well over 550PS and will be close to the seven minute mark at the Nurburgring race track.
