Nissan Motor Company is going to compete in the GT500 class of SUPER GT Race in Japan with its 2014 rules’ compliant machine the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT500. Two other brands have also revealed their new vehicles, created especially for the race. Honda will be on the track with the Honda NSX Concept-GT, while Lexus will enter the championship with Lexus GT LF-CC Prototype.
From 2014 the vehicles which are in the GT500 class of SUPER GT will be developed based on the same new technical regulations, except for engine-related regulations, as the DTM – the German Touring Car Championship. This of course, ensures that the battle among SUPER GT machinery will be intensified.
The development of Nissan GT-R NISMO GT500 started at the end of July and was also unveiled this weekend at a demonstration run at Round 5 of the SUPER GT series at Suzuka Circuit. Additional details around the car will be announced at a later date.
