2015 Nissan GT-RIt was only a little more than a year ago that we were wondering if there would be a new Nissan GT-R, now here we are writing about the introduction of two of them. Carlos Ghosn himself unveiled the new 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo and the standard-in-name-only 2015 GT-R on which it is based. The Nismo is all about ape-chested mojo, coming with the tagline "Zero Competition," GT3-derived tweaks without and within and a 'Ring time of 7:08.679.

Nissan also brought the actual 'Ring-running car to the event and you'll notice that it has a different rear wing than the two show cars. We were told that the wing on the time-setting car would be available on the car that goes on sale, Nissan intending to keep its "production car" promise.

You can check out the Nismo above in the new Dark Matte Grey exterior hue and in Brilliant White Pearl, as well as the new GT-R, its new Ivory interior and LED light signature below. We haven't written this in a while, so allow us to bring the challenge back: Porsche - your move...

      Say what you want about the looks, but Porsche just got their asses handed to them.

        This is just bullshit from Nissan again, no one will ever come close to their claimed Ring time with a production model.

          The GTR spanks Porsche the world over with production versions. 100% win rate against the 997 Turbo on dry tracks by independent testers. What were you saying about the Nurburgring?

        if this is standard GT-R yes, but this is the new-super-tuned and rumored as almost $200k GT-R. It's fair to wait for 991 GT2 RS (probably about the same level of power and price).

          One can always then 'wait' for a faster GTR to inevitably come out. Just a student....

      Way better looking car in person, I'm sure it will be the same for the nismo. I think it's functional design makes it beautiful. The only thing I don't like about the GTR is the size... I'm a old Nissan freak so I'm biased...it's not ugly it's just not pretty which is all good with me. Love the name BTW

      It may be an awesome performer, but holy sh*t it's ugly.

      The real question is, will this special edition record setting car actually make money or lose money for Nissan. The LFA costs Toyota money to make each one as they don't sell it for what it's actual production cost even is. I highly suspect Nissan uses this as a marketing tool and loses money on each sale. Would be interesting to know more about the actual production costs of this car vs. what they sell it for to the average buyer forking out Porsche and Ferrari $.

        If it results in more showroom traffic and brand awareness, then yes, it will make Nissan money.

        I will take that complement! I LOVE my G37S Sport Coupe! I love GTR also for the performance but it looks too boxy. Needs cosmetic update very soon!

      I really hate that front fog light and the indicator just in front of the front wheel. They look like afterthoughts. I would love to see rally style large round fog lights on the front and that indicator curing with the wheel or on the vents. This should also have been made a widebody that is wider than the standard GTR. But regardless this is by far the best looking GTR of the new models. Amazing looking for a GTR
