The 545 hp, twin-turbocharged Nissan GT-R has quickly established itself as one of the most incredible street machines on the planet. The GT-R Nismo GT3 shares the same engine with its street legal sibling, but has been built exclusively for FIA GT3 competition by the Nismo motorsport arm of Nissan.
In place of creature comforts like adjustable leather seats and air conditioning sit lightweight carbon fibre door panels, a roll cage and racing harness. Aerodynamic enhancements include a front splitter, flat floor and adjustable rear wing to add extra down force at high speeds and it all adds up to a world-class racing machine that can go toe-to-toe with Europe’s best and win.
Experience the thrill of GT3 class racing with this outstanding, ready-to-run replica of the 2012 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3. It comes just as you see here with an officially licensed GT3 body in place, complete with its large rear wing. Underneath the body is a versatile Vaterra V100-C chassis with a built-in front splitter and rear diffuser, just like those on full-scale racing machines. Handling is neutral out of the box, but the chassis offers all kinds of tuning options that let you tailor the handling to your driving style.
The V100-C platform has been designed with flexibility in mind; accommodating variation in wheelbase and dimensions to ensure that our products are as faithful to the originals as possible. Multi-part body tooling produce undercuts and shapes that simple vacuum forming is incapable of achieving. Yes it’s more time consuming and yes it’s more expensive but to the enthusiast, the difference is startling and the end result justifies the decision.
Simple details such as brake discs, wing mirrors and bumpers complete the look but are so often overlooked. But not with Vaterra. Authentic colour ways and realistic wheels, subtle visual cues that stand out to the enthusiast; all have been carefully thought out, designed and produced with official licensed endorsement from the design owners.
It’s a 1/10 Scale saloon platform that has been designed around a common chassis and driveline, making it possible to create many different cars without the need for expensive and extensive bespoke spares support. At the heart of the V100-C lies a four wheel driven shaft-drive transmission system, equipped with twin gear-type differentials housed within a sealed drivetrain and transmission tunnel with an inline-mounted 15T brushed motor. A proven concept that our Vaterra engineers have honed to provide a balanced, neutral handling and confidence-inspiring dynamic package that can be further augmented with a wide range of tuning and personalisation options.
Inside the box to power the radio is four AA batteries that are sure to keep you going for many battery packs to come. There is a Dynamite Speedpack 1800mAh NiMH battery that when fully charged gives great power and duration and to charge this pack there is a mains 2A charger that is sure to get you out there in no time.
