Nissan claims this is the maximum amount of power it could squeeze from the engine without damaging the transmission. The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available with an optional track pack that recently posted a 7:08.69 time at the Nurburgring. The kit includes a range of carbon-fiber body parts that shave 65kg off the car’s curb weight, a front splitter, huge rear spoiler and chassis upgrades such as adjustable Ohlins shocks. More official photos and information will be released in the next 24 hours, so stay tuned.
