2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo Pictures, Details Leak Ahead of Official Debut

Embargoes break all the time, so we have to be on our feet all the time, especially during auto show season when everything's flying around at supersonic speeds. The latest car in question is the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo, a car that will reportedly come packing just under 600 horsepower and have a Nurburgring Nordschleife track time of just seven minutes and eight seconds. That puts it into some seriously fast company, like million-dollar car territory, if it is to be believed. None of that has yet to be confirmed by Nissan.
Much of that alleged time will be attributable to Dunlop Sport Maxx GT tires, which are bubble-gum sticky. The car will allegedly also have a sports package aimed at lowering its weight by 143 pounds via a higher use of carbon fiber composites. No other numbers have been released, but we'll provide you with official stats as soon as we get them.
Expect full information to be revealed about the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo tomorrow as it makes its introduction at the Tokyo Motor Show, and we'll have a rundown of the standard-fare 2015 Nissan GT-R soon enough as it debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week, with the U.S. GT-R expected to cost upwards of $100,000 and the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo coming in at a price closer to $200,000.
