    Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3

     

    Nismo GT3 2016

    Nissan Motorsport International (Nismo) has officially launched its NEW Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 and the car is now available to customer teams and drivers ahead of the 2016 season.

    The Japanese manufacturer’s latest GT3 challenger – available via JRM as Nismo’s Official Partner in the GT3 category – is a significant evolution of the preceding specification GT-R that won the Bathurst 12 Hours, the Blancpain GT Series PROAM drivers’ and teams’ titles and Japan’s Super Taikyu series.

    The NEW Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 completed a successful 12-month development programme in Japan and this has been followed up by a year of on-track development in Europe with official customer teams during 2015 – the highlight of which was winning the Blancpain Endurance Series PRO Cup last weekend at the Nürburgring.

    A raft of modifications have made the NEW Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 faster, lighter and more fuel efficient on track, and improvements to the car’s balance and handling have also made the car easier for PRO, AM and Gentleman competitors to drive. The latest developments include:

    NEW BRAKE SYSTEM
    A completely new specification brake system has been introduced to improve performance, driver feel – giving AM and Gentleman drivers added confidence – cooling and life. The car’s new AP Racing brake calipers feature larger diameter pictons and new front and rear brake master cylinders. Larger diameter and thicker Endless brake discs are fitted front and rear making the car ready for Sprint and long-distance Endurance events.

    ECU mapping developments have improved fuel efficiency, the starter motor has been moved from the engine to the rear transaxle to improve weight distribution, air jacks are mounted lower to enable use of smaller and lighter jacks, heavily revised steering column to reduce weight and improve balance, modified chassis brackets and fixings throughout the car to reduce weight and improve balance, modified wiring harness to improve weight and reliability, introduction of carbon air intake pipes and reduced weight components.

    NEW AERO PACKAGE
    The NEW Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 benefits from reduced drag and more effective front dive planes, rear diffuser and front and rear bumpers for improved aero efficiency in medium and high speed corners. The car’s latest aero package has been wind tunnel and track tested to maximise overall efficiency.

    IMPROVED VISIBILITY, COMFORT AND SAFETY
    Inside the cockpit, the NEW Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 features a raft of changes to improve drivability and efficiency for all drivers with a focus on AM and Gentleman drivers. These include: revised seating position for ease of getting in and out of the car, as well as better weight distribution, lower dashboard and flat-bottom steering wheel to improve visibility, and additional side roll cage tubes to improve side protection.

    James Walters, JRM’s Partnership Manager, said:

    “The NEW Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 is a completely different race car to its predecessor and the developments that have been made by Nismo’s engineers in Japan and on the race track during the last year have made the GT-R a very easy car to drive fast – especially for Gentleman drivers – and has made it a formidable GT3 package for 2016.

    “The official customer teams that have been at the heart of the car’s on-track development this season have noticed a significant performance step and the fact that the car has won the Blancpain Endurance PRO Cup this year, secured seven poles, set eight fastest laps and finished on the podium a further ten times illustrates the NEW Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 is extremely reliable and a proven race-winning package.”

    Craig Dolby, JRM’s PRO driver and coach, said: “The new GT-R is extremely easy to drive. The brakes are tremendous, the weight distribution has been improved and there’s a lot more aero on the car. The brakes give a lot more feedback through the pedal and inspire confidence.

    “Looking ahead to 2016, the new GT-R is a really strong baseline package that’s great for different types of drivers. The Gentleman drivers have felt very comfortable in the car and the PROs have obviously been quick, a point illustrated by the win at Paul Ricard 1000km. It’s a car that people will benefit from driving next season.”

    RACE DRIVER PROGRAMMES
    JRM will continue to run its successful ‘Race Driver Programme’ in 2016 – a development initiative that is available to all Gentleman, AM, young and PRO drivers and helps to attract funding for JRM customer teams. This opportunity is open to all customer teams that are affiliated to JRM and run the NEW Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 in 2016.

    Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3

     

    Nismo GT3 2018

    The newly released NISSAN GT-R NISMO GT3 2018-Spec engine (VR38DETT), modified from the 2015-Spec, generates a maximum power of 405 kw or greater (550 PS or greater) at 6,500 rpm and maximum torque of 637 Nm or greater (65.0kgfm or greater) at 5,000 rpm with its total displacement of 3,799 cc. It comes with a six-speed sequential transmission, semi-automatic paddle shift, ABS, and TCS as standard equipment, and both front and rear suspensions are independent double wishbone types.

    Incidentally, since the 2015-Spec, the engine specification as well as the overall length, wheelbase, tread, and weight have been changed.
    History

    As the Nissan GT-R is based on the concept of "pursuing the ultimate driving pleasure," it is inseparable from motor sports. By competing in prestigious international competitions, the refined technology and driving presence of the Nissan GT-R has continued to evolve.
    The NISSAN GT-R NISMO GT3, a racing car developed based on the regulations of the FIA GT3, is also a successor of the Nissan GT-R legacy. Since its launch in 2012, the NISMO GT3 has competed in GT3 races in which numerous global manufacturers compete for the victory. It has continued to refine its competitive performance.

    It won the overall victory at the "Bathurst 12 Hour," a race held at a special course made of enclosed public roads in Australia in 2015. It also raced in the "SUPER GT Series" GT300 class that was held in Japan, in which GT cars from various manufacturers displayed a heated battle between rivals. The car won 1st and 2nd for two consecutive races of both the Fuji Round and Thai Round, proving its high competitive performance.

    In addition, it won the championship at the Blancpain Endurance, the largest GT3 championship in Europe.

    In 2016, it won in all six races for the "Super Endurance Series," easily winning the series championship. At the "Total 24 Hours of Spa," one of the top three global 24 hour races, the car finished all the races consecutively 4 years in a row between 2014 and 2017, as well as finishing "24 Hours Nurburgring" consecutively between 2014 and 2016, proving its durability and reliability.

    The technology and experience accumulated and refined during these severe competitions were inherited for the evolution of the next generation NISMO GT3.
    Dynamic Performance

    The major theme of the NISSAN GT-R NISMO GT3 2018-Spec is to improve driving performance by lowering the gravity center and optimizing the front and rear weight distribution.

    The position of the engine used to be the same as that of the GT-R. It is now lowered approximately 150 mm by making the oil pan thin by implementing a dry sump system. By lowering the entire power train that includes components such as the propeller shaft and gear box which are heavy, the center of gravity was significantly lowered successfully.

    In order to optimize the front-and-rear weight distribution, the engine was moved backward, approximately 150 mm closer to the vehicle center. Thus, the weight distribution was optimized.

    Furthermore, the torsional rigidity of the front end was increased and the suspension was fully reviewed. With its low center of gravity and optimum weight distribution, a maneuverability that responds accurately to the driver's input is achieved.


    Compared to the 2015 model, the engine and power train are placed lower. In addition, by moving the engine to the back, the front-and-rear weight balance is optimized.
    Aerodynamic Performance

    The aerodynamics of the NISSAN GT-R NISMO GT3 2018-Spec isdeveloped to ensure vehicle stability and to improve the cooling performance.

    By reviewing the suspension settings thoroughly, the vehicle position change is controlled. Stable down force that is not affected by the change in vehicle height due to suspension setting changes at the circuit is ensured.

    Furthermore, air flow inside the engine room is optimized to increase down force. Driving stability in the high speed range is improved. In addition, the layout of the radiator and the intercooler was modified. A space in the front of the engine room created by moving the engine to the back was used to install the radiator and intercooler at ideal positions so that air can be passed through smoothly. At the same time, the layout of air intake and air outlet was also modified to significantly improve the cooling performance.

    Driving Comfort

    The NISSAN GT-R NISMO GT3 2018-Spec has an entirely new cockpit to improve comfortability and operability. The seat is lowered while maintaining the frontal visibility. This also helps lower the center of gravity of the vehicle.

    Additionally, an innovative driver cooling system can optionally be equipped. This system does not cool the inside of the cockpit. It rather sends cool air directly to the helmet and seat to keep drivers at their best condition.

    Furthermore, the steering wheel is also redesigned and the switch panel layout on the center console has been renewed. Operability is also improved.





    1. Improved switch layout. Easier-to-use center console
    2. Steering wheel with improved operability
    3. The seat is lowered to help lower the center of gravity without hindering the frontal visibility.
