Nissan’s 2014 GT-R Nismo performer will make its European debut at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

Unveiled at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show, the new GT-R Nismo has already proven its performance credentials, with a 7m08.679s lap of the famous Nurburgring circuit in Germany.

The Nurburgring played a significant part in the GT-R Nismo’s development, with new springs and specially developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers fitted at both ends.

Three suspension settings are offered with the GT-R Nismo: Comfort, Normal and, for track application, R mode.

Power for the new model has risen from 404 to 441kW and 628 to 650Nm - thanks in part to larger new high-flow turbochargers inspired by the GT-R GT3 race car.

Nismo has also given the engine a going-over, optimising ignition timing for each of the six cylinders, and improving fuel combustion.

A zero to 100km/h time of anywhere from 2.0 to 2.4 seconds has been rumoured, but Nissan is yet to release official acceleration figures.

A factory-backed Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 graced the Mount Panorama circuit in last weekend’s Bathurst 12-Hour, proving competitive until its race came to a spectacular end after 2h25m.

The 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo is already available in Japan, with sales in Europe set to begin in September.

Watch for an Australian debut to follow Europe, with local specs and pricing yet to be confirmed.
