YOKOHAMA: Nissan and its motorsports arm Nismo have offered a first look at the 2020-spec Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500 race car.

Nismo is developing the car, based on the GT-R Nismo, for the 2020 Super GT series. It will comply with the new Class 1 technical regulations to be uniformly adopted by the Super GT and DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) series.

A development test took place at Suzuka Circuit in Japan on Thursday, with further development to follow.

The Super GT series is one of Nismo’s key motorsports activities, alongside the ABB FIA Formula E Championship series.

This year's Nismo GT500 include improvements to the balance of aerodynamic performance, a review of weight distribution, increased engine output and power curve optimisation.
