2014 Nissan GT-R NISMO Development Story
REVEALED: NISSAN GT-R NISMO
-World premiere of race-inspired version of Nissan's legendary GT-R
-600hp (441kw) for blistering performance
-Advanced aerodynamics generating additional 100kg of downforce at 300km/h
(186mph) for exceptional road-holding
YOKOHAMA, Japan (November 19, 2013) - Records fall and dreams come true
with the debut of the Nissan GT-R Nismo. This race-oriented model delivers
"factory tuned" supercar dynamics with revolutionary enhanced aerodynamics
and ultra-precise handling. The Nissan GT-R is already established as one
of the best performing supercars in the automotive sphere, and now Nissan
has drawn on decades of racing experience gathered by Nismo, the brand's
motorsport specialists, to develop the ultimate Nissan GT-R.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo features exclusive styling that embraces the
longstanding racing philosophy of form following function. It has numerous
motorsports-inspired technologies to enhance the car's performance through
optimised aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain, creating a well-balanced
machine that is at home on both the road and track.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available in Japan in late February 2014,
U.S. and Europe later in 2014.
Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn says this is the fastest Nissan GT-R ever. "With a
7:08.679 lap time, we can authoritatively say that the Nissan GT-R Nismo*
holds the volume production car lap record at the Nürburgring
Nordschliefe, which is the gold standard of high performance achievement."
Nissan GT-R Nismo Overview - Flagship of the Nismo lineup
1. Mechanical Features
Nissan GT-R Nismo employs innovation, uncompromising engineering and
motorsports-inspired technologies to achieve new levels of power, speed and
-Under the hood, the 3.8-litre V6 VR38DETT engine benefits from the
know-how that Nismo has gained from participating in such events as the
world-renowned Nürburgring 24 hour race. Engine power has risen and is now
rated at 600hp (441kw) and 481 lb ft (652 Nm) of torque.
-New high-flow, large diameter turbochargers, which are used for GT3 racing,
improve breathing, while optimised individual ignition timing control for
each cylinder and upgraded fuel pump improve combustion.
-The suspension setup,is inspired by that of the Nismo racing GT-R and
tuned for stunning agility, road-holding and handling finesse, without
-The springs and custom-developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers in the front
and rear suspension are specially tuned to deliver exceptional grip levels
and progressive handling response at the limit. Three suspension modes can
be selected: Comfort, Normal and R, for circuit applications.
-Exclusive Nismo tyres - developed by Dunlop - exhibit outstanding grip and
handling characteristics. Front: 255/40 ZRF20; rear 285/35 ZRF20.
-Specially-developed links fitted to the front double wishbone suspension
increase castor trail to optimise wheel position during high-G cornering
and improve straight-line and cornering stability. Additionally, large
high-rigidity bolts are used to increase stiffness of the wheel-hub
-To minimize body-roll during cornering and changes of direction, the
Nissan GT-R Nismo features a 17.3 mm hollow rear anti-roll bar which raises
roll stiffness while reducing weight.
-Increased rigidity in the bodyshell is achieved using adhesive bonding in
addition to spot welding leading to precise suspension response under
extreme load, the Nismo "factory tuned" enhancement.
2. Exterior design - Exclusive styling with improved aerodynamics
-Using the latest Computational Fluid Dynamic simulation techniques to
analyse airflow, Nismo has developed an aero package that improves
road-holding, minimises the negative impact of drag, while giving the car a
menacing and muscular appearance.
-Together, the front bumper, engine undercover strake and carbon rear
spoiler increase downforce, lowering the centre of gravity and generating
an additional 100kg (at 300km/h) compared to the freshly updated 2014 GT-R
model. 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, the same
as that of 2014 Nissan GT-R.
-The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available in five body colors: Brilliant
White Pearl, Meteor Flake Pearl Black, Ultimate Metallic Silver and Vibrant
Red. And unique to the GT-R Nismo model, a Dark Matte Grey accentuates the
car's imposing exterior muscularity.
-The GT-R Nismo's black 6-spoke wheels are inspired by Nissan's legendary
GT500 race car.
Nissan Juke Offroading River Redux
When Aaron decided to avoid the river crossing in Episode 6, some viewers
suggested he didn't give the Juke a chance. So we decided to give the Juke
a second opportunity at redemption. Can it make it across the river and up
the bank? (Excerpt from DSTV Episode #9)

2013 Nissan Juke NISMO - Story
Nissan Juke Nismo
Almost 50 years ago Nissan engineers had a simple idea to try Boosting sales through motorsport - they
dropped a powerful engine into an ordinary Japanese saloon. Realising the
potential of what they had created, they worked flat out to produce 100
examples to meet strict homologation rules. Launched on 1 May 1964, the car
was the Nissan Skyline 2000GT (S54). It competed in its first race just two
days later and while victory was taken by a Porsche 904, the Nissan took
every place from 2nd to 6th. Little did these maverick engineers know what
they had started. Their passion for racing, working after-hours in their
own time to create a competitive car, resulted in the birth of the Skyline
legend. The spirit of Nismo emerged for the first time. This approach led
to the dominance of the four-wheel-drive R32 GT-R, itself winning over a
generation both on real and virtual race tracks. Harnessing the potential
of the digital age, Nismo cars became global superstars in Sony's long
running Gran Turismo® series. No longer were thrilling cars the preserve
of the wealthy minority. In 2013 Nismo's enthusiasm and innovation is alive
and well. Today the expertise is channelled from the race track to the
road, never forgetting the connection with fans in the digital space. Nismo
has arrived in Europe.
2014 Nissan Juke NISMO (200hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p FULL HD)
The full Country Road and Autobahn Drive with the 2013/2014 Nissan Juke
Nismo with its 1.6 turbo (200hp; 250Nm)
FWD and 6-speed manual transmission. You can argue about the styling of the
regular Juke but I think this NISMO model doesn't look to bad. Everything
else, as engine, suspension and steering is very good, so the engineers at
Nissan knew what to do to give this car a sporty feel. Two things to
describe how this car feels are "lightness" and "pulltrhough". Since this
FWD version only weighs 1.300 kg and gear ratio is short you can really
irritate some much more potent cars on the Autobahn. In everything to 160
km/h this car is really quick, almost Mini-like. The interior quality is a
improvement to the "standard" Juke as well, since many parts are wrapped in
alcantara, which does feel good. I am looking forward to hear your COMMENTS

Roadfly.com - 2011 Nissan Juke Road Test & Review
In 2011, Nissan introduced an all-new mini-crossover into its lineup of
stellar cars: The Nissan Juke. With a highly original design, awesome
standard options, and amazing gas mileage, the Juke is a tight little
The Juke's engine is a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine that gets
188 horsepower and
177 pound-feet of torque, still managing to get 25 mpg in the city and 30
mpg on the highway, along with 0-60 times in less than 7 seconds. Pretty
impressive for a SUV that only costs roughly $24,000 (msrp).
Altogether, the Juke is a great SUV for its price, offering a lot of value
and efficiency and driving experience for your dollar. Buyers around the
world have been purchasing the Juke at breakneck pace, and Nissan can
barely keep up with the demand for this hot new ride.
