Nissan will be entering their GT-R in the FIA GT Championship for 2010. Based heavily on the GT-R chassis, virtually everything else about the car is upgraded or replaced. There's a VK56DE 5.5 liter V8 good for 600 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque, a Ricardo sequential transmission, carbon carbon brakes and 18" forged racing wheels. Looks pretty slow, don't you think?
