Sólo construirán 23 unidades, todas con tracción trasera.

A pesar de sus años, el Nissan GT-R es aún un impresionante carro de performance. Incluso, para quienes buscan más potencia aún, además del GT-R50 que les mostramos hace unos días, ahora también existe el GT23 de JRM Group. Este modelo parte desde el GT-R GT1 de competencia, pero convertido en un vehículo de circulación legal. JRM sólo construirá 23 unidades a un precio de £380,000 cada una, o $500,620 al tipo de cambio actual, las entregas comienzan en 2020.

JRM realizó varios cambios a gran escala en el GT-R GT1 para transformarlo en el GT23. El frente fue reformado, además de reubicar el motor y la transmisión a comparación de cómo los trae el modelo de competencias. La arquitectura de la suspensión también es diferente. Los neumáticos de competencia le permiten lograr 2G de adherencia en las curvas, según JRM.

Bajo el capó se mantiene el V6 VR38DETT de Nissan, pero ahora produce 650 caballos de fuerza. La potencia va al eje trasero, a diferencia de la mayoría de los ejemplares del cupé y es dirigida a través de una transmisión secuencial de seis marchas.

Comparado con el GT-R GT1 (galería abajo), el GT23 se ve notoriamente distinto. JRM le instaló un capó diferente con dos amplias entradas de aire. Las defensas incluyen salidas de aire detrás del eje delantero. Por detrás la apariencia varía menos, excepto por la salida de escapes doble sobre el centro. El uso de materiales livianos permite mantener el peso debajo de las 2,811 libras.

El interior es el de un carro de competencias. El asiento del piloto cuenta con grandes refuerzos, mirando hacia un volante multifunción de fondo plano. Todo el instrumental está montado sobre una pantalla digital.

JRM tomará los pedidos para las 23 unidades del GT23 a nivel global y no regional, lo que significa que quienes quieran comprar uno van a competir con compradores del mundo entero.

JRM LAUNCH THE GT23 - A LIMITED EDITION RACE CAR FOR THE ROAD
 

· An authentic race car that is also road legal

· Prices start at £380,000 for one of the 23 limited-edition cars

· Designed and built by JRM, a World-Championship winner in the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT1

· Focused engineering by performance experts to give a new driving experience

· Take delivery in 2020

 

JRM, a UK-based advanced engineering company that has a history steeped in motorsport success, has taken their world-championship winning expertise and developed a limited-edition race car that is road legal.

 

As GT1 title winners in the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT1, as well as building and running the GT3 for customer racing, JRM is releasing their version of the ultimate race car for the road. Limited to a run of only 23 cars, all hand-built at their UK headquarters in Daventry with each limited-edition chassis individually numbered, JRM’s GT23 will commence production in Spring 2020. It will be available to customers around the globe and open to pre-orders from 10th December 2019.

 

In creating the GT23, JRM has reviewed all the major systems in the car, and where appropriate redesigned components to enhance track performance. The holistic approach has included significant changes to weight, weight distribution and inertia which required significant changes to engine position, gearbox, and suspension architecture. The engineering behind the JRM GT23 has been totally functionally driven to make it a car that can deliver a real race-driving experience.

 

JRM Managing Director Jason King says ‘To develop a car of our own has always been a goal for JRM and we’ve been working behind the scenes to make this a reality. It’s time to show people what JRM can do. It’s always been hidden away, putting someone else’s label on our work in performance engineering. We know the GT-R inside out and our team of designers, engineers and racing drivers have taken this cult car to a whole new level - the GT23 is incredibly special.’

 

JRM Technical Director Elliot Dason-Barber says ‘With a full aero package and light weighted to achieve 500 bhp per ton, the GT23 is an impressive package. This car is born from racing. Every system the team has put on it has racing pedigree and they’ve done a great job. To take a car that is already a serious machine and hone it to our racing specification, that includes the new JRM sensor system, has been incredibly rewarding and enabled us to demonstrate our capabilities to a market that really know their cars.’

 

The racing elements this car delivers are like nothing else on a road car, not even the very special ones.It really is an authentic race car.”
