for 2013 and is already taking orders for the new racecar. The basics of the car remain that same with a twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter V6 with power routed to the rear wheels and a dry weight of 1300kg. 

Nissan has worked to make the GT-R GT3 more reliable with the 2013 upgrade. The engine has new camshaft timing and strengthened engine internals. The gear ratio has been changed as well. 

The 2013 GT-R GT3 also has some obvious aerodynamic upgrades with canards on the front corners and larger fender louvers. The rear wing has also been moved slightly farther back. Nissan also retuned the suspension setting to cope with the new aerodynamics.

Because there are certain rules for the various GT3 series, the GT-R GT3 produces the same minimum of 550ps and 637Nm of torque. Depending on the Balance of Performance in a team's given GT3 series, the car could make more power. 

Nissan builds the GT-R GT3 on demand in Japan. Prices for complete cars start at £270,000 in Europe. Nismo can also supply all of the car's spares.
