An announcement came from JR Motorsport that their Nissan Nismo GT-R GT3 back in September 2011, but Nissan themselves have already gone to work on a GT-R GT3 Nismo that they plan to unveil at next week’s Dubai 24 Hours. The new car will compete in the A6 class at the hands of Michael Krumm (GER), Tom Kimber-Smith (UK), Franck Mailleux (FRA), and Alex Buncombe (UK).

The new GT-R GT3 Nismo is powered by a 3.8 liter V6 twin-turbo engine that delivers a total of 500 HP and 479 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a Hewland 6-speed sequential gearbox with a Sachs 4- plate sintered clutch and a semi automatic pneumatic paddle.

The GT3 Nismo has also been equipped with a new set of 18" RAYS center-lock, aluminum forged wheels and a new set of Brembo brakes. Nissan then replaced the standard exhaust system with a new side-exit exhaust with optional catalytic converter. The panels and doors are made of carbon composite and, for a better aero dynamic, Nissan has attached a wind tunnel developed front splitter, bumper, and flat floor, as well as an adjustable rear wing.
