Nissan has confirmed that its performance division, Nismo, will produce an "ultimate" version of the Nissan GT-R.
Nissan GT-R Nismo confirmed
Following the opening of its new headquarters and development centre, Nismo is set to develop a line-up of performance-orientated Nissans.
Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan, said, "It would be unthinkable for us to develop a range of Nismo road cars without including the GT-R. The standard road car is a global supercar and the GTR's performance on track reflects the passion and talents of the Nismo team. The GT-R Nismo will be special."
Currently the standard GT-R, which is powered by a 542bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6, is capable of sprinting from 0-100kph in three seconds flat.
The new Nissan GT-R Nismo will join existing Nismo models, including the Nissan 370Z Nismo and the Nissan Juke Nismo.
Besides the Nismo badging, these models feature styling, interior and performance tweaks to differentiate them from the standard versions.
