The revised Nissan GT-R Nismo has been unveiled sporting an updated front-end, new interior, and tweaks to the suspension.
On the outside, the 2017 GT-R Nismo adopts many of the changes made to its less powerful siblings.
Up front, the Nismo now has a version of the V-motion grille present on the rest of the range.
Unlike less sporting Nissans, though, the GT-R Nismo’s entire front bumper is fashioned out of carbon fibre, with some of it visible to the naked eye.
There’s also a redesigned front splitter that sweeps more air around the wheels and, according to the company, helps the revised GT-R Nismo to produce the most downforce available on a production Nissan thus far.
Under the bonnet, the updated coupe features the same 441kW hand-made version of the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 as the outgoing GT-R Nismo.
Performance is said to be improved via tweaked shocks, springs and stabilisers, which, with the stiffer body and improved aerodynamics are said to improved slalom and cornering ability by 2 per cent.
The GT-R Nismo inherits the heavily revised interior used in the rest of the 2017 GT-R range, which includes a new streamlined, higher quality dashboard, an 8-inch touch screen display with remote control knob, and a new steering wheel.
Unique to the Nismo are leather and faux suede Recaro carbon bucket seats.
