Nissan GT-R GT3 Racer Revealed
The new Nissan GT-R GT3 racer was just revealed and will go into action in a week at the 24 Hours of Dubai. Unlike its counterpart that took the GT1 championship in '11, the GT3 GT-R is actually powered by Nissan's twin turbo V6 that is to be found within the stock version of that car vs. the transplanted V8 that goes into the GT1 racer.
The GT3 class is supposed to represent a much closer to showroom stock (though by no means "stock") versions of racecars. That being said, Nissan is not skimping on the drivers it is putting behind the wheel with GT1 driver Michael Krumm and others behind the wheel for its first event. Can't wait to see the results. Nissan looks to be going hard into motorsports in 2012!!
