Nissan has unveiled a racing edition of the GT-R developed by its in house tuner NISMO at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

Called the GT-R RC (Racing Competition), NISMO has tweaked the GT-R's set up for improved track performance with the incorporation of a tire-compatible suspension, lightweight parts and proper racing safety features. These features include an FIA-qualifying welded roll cage, air jacks and a 120 liter safety fuel tank.

The engine remains unturned though (it doesn’t need to anyway!). Power comes from a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine with an output of 530 hp and an accompanying 661 Nm of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is clocked at a flat 3.0 seconds for the standard GT-R.

The Tokyo Auto Salon opens from January 14 to 16 and is a showcase for both tuners and automakers alike.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
