NISMO GT-R GT3 Race Car Updated for 2015

NISMO GT-R GT3 Race Car Updated for 2015

There’s no better place than the Tokyo Auto Salon for Nissan to show off just how venerable the GT-R is.

Taking center stage the Japanese automaker’s booth at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon is its championship winning Motul Autech GT-R NISMO GT500 which conquered the 2014 Super GT Series. In addition, the company is showing off its 2015-spec NISMO GT-R GT3 that is not only lighter, but more aerodynamic, fuel efficient and has a better weight balance than last year’s race car.

2015 Tokyo Auto Salon Coverage

The NISMO GT-R GT3 will get an early start to the 2015 race season when it competes at this weekend’s Dubai 24 Hours race. Piloting the GT-R NISMO GT3 in Dubai will be four GT Academy winners: Ricardo Sanchez, Nicholas Hamman, Gaetan Paletou, and Ahmed bin Khanen. Unfortunately, the race car competing this weekend will be a 2014-spec car so it’ll be a bit until we see the new 2015-spec in action. For now, enjoy the photos of how the GT-R looks in race trim below.
