Nevertheless, the Special Editions VR38DETT will be put together with “high-precision, weight-balanced parts for the piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft and valve gear components.” The tighter tolerances enable the GT-Rs engine contractors– unique Nissan master specialists called takumi who hand-assemble each powerplant in an unique clean room– to call in quicker turbo spooling, snappier revs and sharper performance. And considering that tighter internal tolerances arent something you can easily see, GT-R Nismo Special Editions engine will feature an aluminum takumi certification plate in a special color.

Handling is still enhanced by the Nismo-tuned adaptive-damper suspension..
