Rather than Nissan LMGTs I prefer all the way Nissan LMPs!

E-I has a news item on the car:
-It's called the GT-R RC (Racing Competition)
-Figures quoted are 1520kg and 485hp. That's less power than the road car and much too heavy but I guess the engine can make more.
-The picture of the car's rear shows exhaust outlets that - I'm 99% certain - don't belong to a V8.

According to Speedweek the RS is only a track day toy/amateur racer, but could be the basis for the GT3 car. That makes a bit more sense, I think. 1520kg is brutally much for a GT3.

Yes, the RC is the Super Taikyu car, not the GT3.

Must be 13 different manufacturers in GT3 this year, possibly more! I expect it to look like the GT1 racer but with smaller V6 turbo!

When a new car arrives it drives out an older model so you only have approx. half a dozen competitive cars.

"RC" is not a FIA-GT3 car.
It is a race car for the Japanese Super Taikyu series (but ST-1 class, GT3 car class is ST-X class) and for foreign one-make race.
This car is AWD and has only two pedal.

Japanese AUTOSPORT magazine scooped FIA-GT3 spec GTR test by NISMO at Fuji.
Test driver is Masataka Yanagida(Nissan driver). Tire is Michelin. It has twin rear exhaust.
The engine is obviously V6(!) judging from the photograph of the engine room(It must be VR38DETT of twin turbo).

NISMO announced that it would expand the partnership with JR Motorsport (JRM) to the GT3 project of Nissan GTR.
NISMO is developing GT3 spec GTR with JRM now.
JRM does the running test including the race in Europe, develops the vehicle, and produces the vehicle and parts in this project.
In addition, JRM will work on the customer support as a dealer of GT3-GTR in Europe, Russia, and the Middle East region.

I'd imagine that this means that we'd see JRM at the Spa 24 using the Sumo Power/JRM drivers that they use in GT1.

Hopefully so, it wouldnt be the first time Brabs raced a GT-R in the Spa 24hr.

@ Samurai: What's this? It looks like an autocross car for use on the road.
