Nismo GT-R teaser film is out… ニスモGT-Rのティザー動画・・・

Sales of the GT-R NISMO will begin in February in Japan. Leaked information on Car and Driver tells us that the output is up from 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft to 595 horsepower and “more than” 480 lb-ft. The bumps come courtesy of revised intake and exhaust systems, reworked ignition timing, and larger turbochargers swiped from the GT-R GT3 race car. They say they could have raised the out put more but for the sake of saving the transmission, 595 horse power was their answer. The health of the NISMO powerplant is ensured by a new higher-capacity oil pump.

So, Car and Driver comes up with a teaser info like this… then, we can tell you that Nismo GT-R’s was not able to lap Nurburgring under 7:00… But it did pretty damn good!

2月に始まると言われている、ニスモGT-R。すでにCar and Driver誌がスペックをリークしています。最高出力はノーマルの545psから595psに引き上げられているそうです。吸排気の見直し、点火タイミングの見直し、ターボチャージャーをGT3から流用などで実現。本当はもっと最高出力を高めることも出来たそうですが、トランスミッションを守るために595psで抑えたそうです。もちろん、血液であるエンジンオイルを循環させるオイルポンプも強化。

Car and Driver誌がそこまでリークするなら・・・、ニュルブルクリンクのタイムアタックで7分切りは達成できなかったことだけこっそり、書いておきます。でも、決してガッカリさせられるような数値ではありませんよぉ!




Our souces have informed us…on Nismo GT-R 内部に詳しい人間によるニスモGT-R情報

I dislike this phrase, as it is so lame, but I’m going to use it anyway… “Our sources have informed us” that the time attack at Nurburgring for Nismo GT-R went superbly well. In fact, they have managed to beat all the previousl records held by R35. The time is yet to be revealed at Tokyo Motorshow in November but we heard some other interesting things regarding Nismo GT-R as well.

We cannot, unfortunately, confirm any of the information stated below and we hold no responsibilities for our misrepresentation…

1.Time attack was done by not only Sebastian Buemi but, apparently, Michael Krumm took part as well.
2.Target lap time was 7:10 and it was achieved by Michael Krumm.
3.Nismo will come in three, or less, different specifications just like R34’s S-tune, R-tune and Z-tune.
4.Nismo and Williams focused on aerodynamics of the car and have managed to increase downforce significantly, which led to the successful record beating lap time.

You may believe them, you may laugh them off as rumors. In a month time, truth shall prevail!

Nismo GT-R will be attacking Nurburgring very soon. ニュルでタイムアタックに挑む、ニスモGT-R

According to Autocar Nurburgring track insiders have reported that Nissan has booked exclusive use of the venue for its laps. The current fastest verified time for a Nissan GT-R at the circuit is 7m18.6sec, set by Toshio Suzuki in 2012. That is the ninth fastest time by a road-legal car at the circuit. Former Formula 1 driver Sébastien Buemi is posied to set a new lap record for the Nismo GT-R at the Nurburgring this week.
Head over to Autocar for more detail.



MY2014 NISMO GT-R caught on camera! 2014年式ニスモGT-Rがカメラに捕獲された!

Gmotors.co.uk has scoop photos of MY2014 Nismo GT-R! Under this black and white camouflage we can spot an updated front bumper with a new front splitter and revised rear bumper with new vents. The prototype also has the typical six-spoke Nismo alloys wheels and a new big rear spoiler, which was removed for road testing.

Modified 3.8l twin-turbo V6 is expected to produce over 570ps. The GT-R Nismo will also undergo a major weight loss thanks to extensive use of carbon fibre, apparently. The GT-R Nismo is going to debut most likely at the Tokyo Motor Show in November.

R35 is being compared against the new SLC AMG?! R35はSLC AMGのテスト車両比較対象?!

We don’t know whether the Mercedes/AMG SLC will act as a replacement for the SLS AMG or take a spot right under it in Mercedes’ sports car lineup. What we have heard about the SLC, is that it will ride on a modified version of the SLS’s front-mid-engine platform, and will have an entry-level price of around $100,000, or about half the cost of the SLS.

The prototype of the SLC that’s pictured here driving on and around the Nürburgring track is still wrapped in silky black tape. Aside from the obvious choice that is the Porsche 911 series, Stuttgart is also eyeing the Nissan GT-R as we can see on the scoop photos featured on Carscoops, if not for its looks, it’s undisputed performance credentials for sure.

Codenamed C190, the SLC is rumored to have up to three turbocharged V8 powerplants delivering up to 600 horses, with an entry level turbocharged V6 also being considered. The SLC is likely to arrive in the market within the next two years.

SLS AMGの弟分となるのか、後継車となるのか定かではないSLC AMGですが、開発自体は着々と進んでいるようです。SLSのプラットホームを用いて、1000万円クラスの車両になる、という情報だけは漏れ伝わっているのですが、正式なところは何も分かりません。

また、漏れ伝わっている情報はSLC(コードネームC190)は3タイプのV8ターボエンジン(最強モデルは600ps 程度)が用意され、エントリーモデルのみV6ターボエンジンを搭載するそうです。写真を見るかぎりガルウィングではなさそうですから、やっぱり弟分なのかなぁ?
