As we admit Nissan might have built a very fast car, we wonder who would pay such a hefty price knowing they could have gotten the latest generation of the iconic Turbo, a car that’s beautiful, well made and luxurious. There’s a slight power gap between the two models, favoring the Nissan, but badge snobs are going to be Nismo’s biggest enemies.
Nissan has officially revealed the GT-R Nismo Edition in November last year, ahead of its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show. Powered by a retuned 3.8-liter twin-turbo, the monster puts down 592-hp (600 PS) and according to Nissan lapped the Nurburgring in an amazing time of 7:08.679.
Yesterday, Nissan also announced pricing for the most powerful Juke version they’ve ever built. However, just like the GT-R, at $26,120 the Juke Nismo GT costs about as much as serious performance cars like the Subaru WRX.
Seems Nissan has forgotten its foundation!
