The Nissan GT-R NISMO continues unchanged for the 2016 model year. It starts at $151,585 in the US.

As in its debut year, for 2016 the GT-R NISMO model is available in very limited numbers in North America. It has numerous motorsports-inspired technologies to enhance the car's performance through optimized aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain, creating a machine that is at home more at the track than in the streets.

GT-R NISMO's Aerodynamic Body

The 2016 GT-R NISMO features a special aerodynamic body treatment designed to enhance rod holding and to enhance GT-R's appearance. The unique front bumper, engine undercover and carbon rear spoiler increase downforce, lowering the center of gravity and generating an additional 220 pounds of downforce (at 185 mph) compared to the standard GT-R models. The car's aerodynamic characteristics are tuned to ensure the downforce is equally spread front to rear at all speeds for progressive handling characteristics. A widened front bumper configuration and elongated yet tapered rear bumper design keep the drag to Cd 0.26, same with that of standard Nissan GT-R. Four exterior colors are available for the GT-R NISMO: Solid Red, Jet Black, Super Silver and Pearl White.

Interior Design

Inside, the Nissan GT-R NISMO's racing-style RECARO seats offer comfortable yet firm support for the driver and front passenger. NISMO racers influenced the design of the steering wheel, which is dressed in Italian-made Alcantara with three spokes, red leather center mark and red stitching to give the best combination of grip, feedback and comfort. The combi meter has carbon-like finish, and tachometer features a red design. The meter hood is also dressed with Alcantara. Interior trim features include discreet red stitching on the seats, center console, door trim and steering wheel.

600-Horsepower Engine

The 2016 GT-R NISMO's VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 is rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The engine's high-flow, high-capacity turbochargers are similar to those used for GT3 racing and offer improved breathing. Optimized individual ignition timing control for each cylinder and upgraded fuel pump (versus standard models) help improve combustion.

The VR38DETT V6 is backed by an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission, which can be driver selected to shift at race car-like speeds. The sequential-shifting transaxle features separate wet clutches for the odd (1,3,5) and even (2,4,6) gears and pre-selects the next highest and next lowest gear for quick shifts.

The 4-wheel independent suspension receives unique NISMO tuning, with reduced weight and additional roll stiffness. Additional adhesive bonding (in addition to spot welding) helps increase body shell rigidity.
