Yesterday, Nissan shut down the Nurburgring, hired safety marshalls and set up timing beacons in order to have a very hot lap with the 2014 Nismo GT-R. It's unclear whether they succeeded with their record attempt, but the car sure noticeably different from previous prototypes.
Nissan wants to have a GT-R that can reach 62 mph in two seconds flat. That's why the 2014 Nismo GT-R will pack more than 600 horsepower and shed some weight. That's all good.
