Nissan will offer a Nismo GT-R

There have been some big goings-on for Nissan and its Nismo performance segment. Nismo has opened its own plant for constructing automobiles. Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn even said that the company would be offering a Nismo version of the GT-R.

The GT-R is already a highly competent car and Nissan previously announced a Track version of the vehicle. A Nismo version would presumably be even higher performing than the Track version. I'm really surprised that Nissan has waited so long to offer a Nismo GT-R, the company already has Nismo versions of everything from the Juke to the Z car.

The car you see in the picture above is actually the Nissan GT-R GT3 spec racecar the costs over $400,000. The car isn't street legal and you'll need a racing license to drive the car.
