Nissan grabbed headlines last year when it debuted the GT-R Nismo and did a blistering 7:08.679 lap close to the Nürburgring’;s Nordschleife. As it turns out, the GT-R that did that round produced use of components that lowered its weight and enhanced dealing with. Nissan calls the extras the N-Assault Package deal, which stands for Nürburgring Assault, and right here is a video displaying what its upcoming model can do.
The pack tends to make a selection of adjustments to make the Nismo GT-R a better managing car. The suspension and brakes are overhauled with Öhlins adjustable dampers, new stabilizer bar and new front brake pads. As you can see the outside is fairly distinct with carbon fiber components replacing the front fenders and hood gurney, plus an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing with angle adjustments and 2 height settings. The interior gets a carbon fiber rear bulkhead to minimize bodyweight as nicely.
The release date or price for the N-Assault pack has not been unveiled, but chief car engineer Noboru Kaneko says that the test in the video at Fuji Speedway was to comprehensive “ultimate checks.” So the package may well not lag as well far behind the standard GT-R Nismo. Scroll down to see the Nissan’;s pinnacle performance vehicle testing on a cloudy day in Japan and read through a short press release about it.

GOTEMBA, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan – Soon after setting a production vehicle lap record at Germany’;s famed Nurburgring, the Nissan GT-R NISMO N-Assault Package deal brought that performance to Japan’;s Fuji Speedway in exams in early March.
The Nissan Worldwide Media Center spoke with Noboru Kaneko, chief automobile engineer for the GT-R NISMO, on the N-Assault Package deal tests, as well as NISMO racing driver Tsugio Matsuda on the drive and come to feel.
NOBORU KANEKO, Chief Automobile Engineer, GT-R NISMO
“Considering that the time assault lap at the Nurburgring circuit last September, we have been establishing parts employed in setting that record mark in a GT-R NISMO for public sale. Today we are testing at Fuji Speedway in Japan to make some last checks and get a bit more drive data. We have produced the GT-R NISMO with the NISMO N-Assault Bundle to match the overall performance observed at Nurburgring.
“The Fuji exams have confirmed that the car is just as fast right here. Track traits can differ tremendously, so the NISMO N-Attack Bundle attributes Öhlins adjustable dampers that can be modified for other tracks. We are considering more fine tuning to match other tracks.”
TSUGIO MATSUDA, NISMO Racing Driver
“The 2014 GT-R is currently a rapidly car, and I wondered ‘Would the GT-R NISMO be even more rapidly?’; I could come to feel the 50 horsepower increase. The GT-R NISMO was certainly extremely rapidly.
“As for NISMO N-Attack Package, the downforce generated by the added aerodynamic components is really successful on the higher-speed corners this kind of as ‘100R’; and ‘300R’; here at Fuji. Since this auto with the N-Attack Bundle was produced at Nurburgring where the street surface is rough, it would be wonderful if there are even more exams and changes produced for other circuits, which includes flat and smooth Japanese tracks, so that even far more drivers can take pleasure in this auto.”
