Getting to know more about racing cars.
The basis of the machine used in GT500 is the NISSAN GT-R, the result of all the technology and skills cultivated in the company's motorsport history.
The multi-performance supercar with "run, turn, stop" capabilities polished to their utmost limits, comes revamped ready to take on the challenge of a racing environment.
A variety of modifications have taken place, including boosting the car's engine capacity and power, and by reducing vehicle weight by over 500kgs through the removal of the passenger seat and the air conditioning unit.
