Before going to the fastest Nissan car we need to first of all brief ourselves on the history of the company.
Everything and every one has its own history. Everyone must surely have a legacy from the past that will lead to an expected or unexpected outcome in the future.
History Of Nissan Company
Nissan Motors is manufactured by Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
It is a Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer. It has its headquarters in Nishi-Ku, Yokohama.
The Nissan company was originated in two former companies which are Kwaishinsha Co.(Founded in 1911 to produce Dat Cars) and the Jitsuyo Jidosha Co. which is founded in 1919.
They both merged in 1925 in order to form Dat Jidosha Seizo Co.
The assets of the company were taken over by new investors, who later established the Jidosha Seizo Co., Ltd. Thus giving it its current name the following year.
The new company later joined in the manufacturing and sales of vehicles and vehicle parts but under a new name, “Datsun”.
From 1938, the company initially changed from making passenger cars to the production of military vehicles and trucks.
This was due to the war which was going on at that time. The Allied occupation forces seized the main Nissan plants in 1945.
Thus allowing the Nissan and Datsun vehicles to resume production at one plant. All the Nissan facilities were not restored to them, not until 1955.
The market for Nissan products and sales grew massively in the 1960s. This was due to the assembly plants that the company established outside Japan.
They began to struggle in the 1990s and later joined in partnership with “Renault”, “a french car maker”.
Their partnership was a massive success. Then Nissan sales boosted in the early 21st century.
Now that you have been briefed about the long history of the Nissan company. Its time to know the fastest car ever produced by that same company.
Reports have shown that the Nissan GT-R has been in production for over a decade now.
It has made itself famous right from the infamous Nurburgring race track as it was faster than all the participants including the likes of Lamborghinis and porches.
It set a standard for itself with the performance it gave to the world. But I think it is now time to give way to its successor.
The 2020 Nismo GT-R is not just the latest but also the greatest Nissan car. Nissan said that it is 2.5 seconds faster than 2019 was around its development track.
What made it better than the ones that came before it? It is that its weight is reduced compared to the heavy versions that came before it. And another one was its horsepower.
The 2020 Nismo nearly lost about 50 pounds.
The only panels that arent carbon fiber are the doors and the rear fenders as carbon fiber has been utilized thoroughly.
The Nissan company also improved the engine’s responsiveness. They were able to accomplish this by borrowing Nissan’s GT-R race car’s turbochargers.
It has incorporated lighter wheels that rotate up to more quickly(which reduces the turbo lag in return).
This improvement translates to a half-car-length advantage over 5 seconds when flooring the 2020 Nismo GT-R from a 55 mph roll says “Nissan”.
While the rest comes from aerodynamics and tires, with a heavy focus on the previous.
The compound and thread wee both improved for 2020. In contact with the road, there’s now 11% rubber which results in a 7% improvement in grip.
This car has been known for decades by its nickname “Godzilla” which is the name of the king of monsters just for its praise. This is to show the kind of legacy that it has created for itself.
The 2020 GT-R has more upgrading compared to the ones it succeded.
This year, all GT-Rs received turbochargers. The track level trim level is now upgraded to 600 horsepower engines which were offered previously only on the Nismo.
