It looks like the guys at Nismo aren’t giving up on the Nissan GT-R just yet. Seen making its rounds at the Nurburgring is possibly an updated version of the GT-R Nismo, last updated in March 2016.

Visually, this one is barely any different from the model it’s based on, which best explains the lack of camouflage wrap on the car. What’s covered from view, however, are what appear to be vents above the front wheel arches. These apparently lend a hand in improving aerodynamics – likely to reduce air pressure in the wheel arches, reducing lift – but only time will reveal their true function.

The brakes may also be upgraded, with the front pair featuring new callipers that’s different to last year’s debutant. As for power, the outgoing GT-R Nismo draws power from a 3.8 litre VR38DETT V6, equipped with two GT3-spec turbochargers to churn 600 PS at 6,800 rpm and 652 Nm from 3,600 to 5,600 rpm. A slight bump in this department can be expected.

Elsewhere, the car looks to be a carry-over from last year, at least on the visual side of things. Just so you know, the R35 GT-R is 10 years old now, but there appears to be no replacement coming in the near future, as Nissan claims it has still not reached the current model’s full potential.
