The newly refreshed GT-R was meant to make it more fun to drive on the street. The 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo makes sure it’s ready for the track, too. Tested during development on the challenging Nürburgring, it has a hand-built engine mated to a pair of high-flow turbochargers that bump output to 600 hp, put to the ground via the upgraded all-wheel-drive system and a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox. As demanded by the engine changes, it has an enlarged grille, a reinforced hood that won’t deform at high speed, and a carbon fiber front bumper. Yet inside it has all the creature comforts of its updated stablemates, including an Alcantara steering wheel, a drastically improved and simplified center stack with eight-inch touchscreen, and leather Recaro racing seats.
