Following Nissan’s 2011 track triumphs -- which included FIA GT1 World Championship titles for GT-R GT1 drivers Lucas Luhr and Michael Krumm -- the GT-R GT3 was prepped by NISMO, Nissan’s motorsport division, and Team JR Motorsports to compete on multiple fronts in 2012.
After making its competitive debut at the 2012 Dubai 24 Hour, the Japanese manufacturer’s new racer was entered into the Blancpain Endurance Series, the British GT Championship, and the Super GT Series in Japan.
Like its successful GT1 sibling, the GT-R GT3 is based on Nissan’s highly-regarded 2007-launched supercar. Unlike it, the new racer employs the same 530-bhp 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 powerplant as its road-going relation. Mated to its six-speed sequential racing transmission, this means it is capable of hitting 60 in a mere three seconds. Meanwhile its race-tuned chassis and adjustable suspension setup and driving controls make the 2,866-lb car supremely adaptable to racing customers’ requirements.
