    The 2011 Nissan GT-R Racing cars

    Nissan's high-performance GT-R returns for 2010 with 5 more horsepower for its twin-turbocharged V6.

    The GT-R uses Nissan's 3.8-liter, all-aluminum VR38DETT engine. Although this 24-valve, DOHC V6 is loosely based on Nissan's familiar VQ engine, it has many advanced features, including a stiffer, closed-deck cylinder block; plasma-sprayed cylinder bores to reduce weight and friction; and an unusual wet/dry-sump oil system to ensure proper lubrication in high-g turns. Curiously, it does not use the sophisticated Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) system from the 370Z; it has variable valve timing on the intake cam only. Each engine is hand-built by a single technician in a special clean-room facility, to ensure precise assembly.

    The 2011 Nissan GT-R Racing cars

    Since 1969 Nissan has been producing high performance versions of its Skyline range, called the Nissan Skyline GT-R. Over the years the car has become an icon and drawn much attention to the Nissan brand, both on and off the racetrack.

    Although no longer part of the Skyline family and carrying the Skyline badge, the Nissan GT-R continues the 'blood-line' from Skyline GT-R's of old. As with the previous generation GT-R R32 through to R34, the Nissan GT-R is all-wheel drive and powered by a twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine. However, the four-wheel-steering HICAS system has been removed, and the previous straight-6 RB26DETT engine has been replaced with a new V6 VR38DETT unit. Because of the GT-R's heritage, the chassis code for the all-new version has been called CBA-R35, or 'R35′ for short, continuing the naming convention from previous Skyline GT-R generations.
