The Maniacal Monster of the Roads: The 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo


One quick turn, and the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo slides onto the roads. It will be loved by many and beheld by a very lucky select few. This new model of the GT-R is the most aggressive Nissan GT-R to date. There is a very tricky thing about this car, though; there may be nothing too new under the hood besides now having a new 595 Horse Powered engine and 481 ft-lbs of torque up from the last model, putting out only 545 HP and only 463 ft-lbs of torque.

This new GT-R can obviously be seen as a new and improved astounding vehicle. Some of the newest features of this car are new turbochargers and new combustion system (which Nissan calls a premium midship system), meaning that the engine sits behind the front axle center-line and helping out with the weight distribution problems featured in previous models of the GT-Rs.

Underneath the car it beholds a gorgeous scene of many carbon fiber parts, vents to cool various parts of the car, and even a beautiful titanium exhaust system. This new GT-R features very thick tires in both the rear and front of the car helping the car grip better on quick turns. Running the times of this car are mind-boggling and would make any car enthusiast drool coming in at an insane 0-60 in just 2.9 seconds, a quarter mile in just 11.1 seconds, coming in at a speed of 125.3 miles per hour, and running the figure eight in a shocking time of 22.9 seconds. This is an outstanding time for the GT-R comparing to some of its predecessors.

This model features a 6 speed twin-clutch automatic transmission, and optional manual transmission as well. What does the car cost? Oh, just $151,585. This car is a tad more expensive than most GT-R models but put this car on the track and you will immediately understand why, making this a very low production and rare car held by very few.

This car on the streets of willow in California puts up an insane 1 minute 19.07 seconds, the fastest lap time ever recorded by a streetcar at the streets of willow. This beats out some incredible cars, such as the 2010 Ducati 1198S, 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, 2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus, and even the 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia.

The upgrades to this car may not seem substantial on paper but can quickly noticed when putting this car to the test. This monstrous vehicle is said to take the GT-R experience further, make no mistake this is easily the best driving GT-R yet. The engine starts up, the lights turn on, the tires screech, and this car is gone in the blink of an eye and into the dreams of many.
