Nissan GT-R GT500

NISSAN GT-R SHAKEDOWN IN SUZUKA

Suzuka (Oct. 30, 2007) – NISSAN GT-R race car for the GT500 class of Japan’s SUPER GT series underwent a shakedown at the renowned Suzuka Circuit from 29-30 October supervised by NISMO (Nissan Motorsports International Co., Ltd). The vehicle is scheduled to debut in the series next year. The 2-day test, conducted under sunny skies, went smoothly with NISMO’s regular drivers, Satoshi Motoyama, Michael Krumm and Tsugio Matsuda, behind the wheel. The test was designed to obtain important data for the race car’s further development.

Yoshitaka Iijima, NISMO team director for SUPER GT, said: “The test went well without any problems. We obtained positive feedback on the car’s potential from the drivers. We are aware of the NISSAN GT-R popularity and racing heritage. We will make our best effort to win the championship next year.”

Probably.

Interesting exhaust placement, looks good though, a proper succesor to the R34 GT-R.

2008 NISSAN GT-R GT500 RACE CAR TO BE UNVEILED IN NEW NISSAN WORKS LIVERY
-- Debut at Tokyo Auto Salon 2008 and Osaka Auto Messe 2008 --

TOKYO – The GT500 specification Nissan GT-R racing car, which will vie for the 2008 SUPER GT series, will make its public debut at the upcoming “Tokyo Auto Salon with NAPAC” (January 11-13, 2008 at Makuhari Messe), followed by the “Osaka Auto Messe 2008” (February 9-11, 2008 at Intecks Osaka), the country’s two largest annual custom car shows.

The new works livery – which will be featured across Nissan motorsports activities during the 2008 season – will be unveiled on the race car. Nissan will vie for the SUPER GT Championship, one of the world’s most demanding GT race series, with the new machine built on the same multi-performance super car concept of the Nissan GT-R road car.

The new livery resulted from close collaboration between Nissan’s design team and NISMO, its motorsports affiliate company, and incorporates feedback from members of the “Club NISMO” fan club.

The signature wide “brush stroke” design motif, synonymous with the current Fairlady Z race car, was carried forward into the new GT-R racing car as Nissan’s racing fans worldwide could immediately associate with the design. The livery design swipes forward from the rear in bold red and black – the red symbolises the passion for racing, while the black signifies the high performance of the new Nissan GT-R.

Further details of the GT500 Nissan GT-R including technical specifications will be announced on 31 January as well as Nissan’s full range of global motorsports activities for the coming season.

I thought it kinda look like the last R34 JGTC GTR(2002?) with the 350Z mixed in a bit...(roofline and head light)

It shouldn't have anything to do with any car. They're just stickers (I think).

Do the headlights and brake lights even work?

Not sure about headlights but tail lights should work. That sort of looks like a photo of a model car not the real thing?
