Remember when the Nissan GT-R Nismo came back from the Nurburgring with a lap time of 7 minutes 8.679 seconds? We do, it was about that time that Godzilla became the fastest volume production vehicle on the famous German track.
Back then, we told you that setting ultra fast lap times didn’t actually mean anything in real life and most of the internet cursed and hissed at us, calling us all sorts of nasty things. Well, we still believe that to be true to this day and the package the Japanese launched today just comes to confirm our theory.

You see, Nissan has just announced that the ”N Attack Package” will be available in the US for the GT-R Nismo (R35) this year, confirming that the car that actually went around the Ring that fast was not ordinary. Just as many manufacturers do, it was specially prepared and driven by a qualified pilot for it to achieve this performance, something that was impossible until today.

Now, you can get all of the goodies the record-breaking car had on board, like a new set of aerodynamic enhancers, a new suspension and better brakes, all contributing to the experience just as much as the bucket seats.

For the Japanese market, they can be acquired at the Nismo Omori Factory while in the US they are being sold by Steve Millen Sportsparts Inc, or Stillen as it is otherwise known.

Therefore, if you want to further improve your lap times, Nissan is now offering you the tools needed, but at a price. That’s a bit like stealing, though, since the Japanese weren’t afraid to market the Nismo GT-R as the fastest car on the Ring but are now asking more money to actually allow you to drive the version that set the record.

To top everything off, most customers will be driving this thing outside the track as well and they do need rear visibility on the road. Well, adding the N Attack Package will show you what it’s like to live with an enormous wing on the boot or, better said, will leave you in the dark regarding who’s behind you.
