The next Nissan GT-R Nismo is rumored to be a mind-blowing piece of machinery. The new iteration is set to arrive in the second half of 2014 and the Japanese claim it will shatter its own Nurburgring record of 7 minutes and 18 seconds with "more than 570 BHP" under the bonnet.
But wait, that's not all. A new report says the 2015 GT-R Nismo will also set a new benchmark in terms of 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration for production cars with an amazing time of only two seconds. That's quicker than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, the world's fastest production vehicle.

Is that figure even possible? Well, an engineer from Williams Advanced Engineering, the famed British company that helps Nissan with the new GT-R, says there's still room to improve the Japanese supercar. “You’d be surprised at how much room for improvement there is – even with a car like the GT-R. Where you expect it’s all been tuned to the maximum, it’s actually easy to make big gains,” he told Auto Express.

In addition, the GT-R Nismo is also rumored to receive a range of styling upgrades including an updated exhaust system and carbon fiber trim.
