NISMO Nissan GT-R RC Now Available

NISMO has released their racing version of the R35 GT-R known as the NISMO GT-R RC.  The car is being shown for the first time at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon from January 14th-16th. This car has been in development for several years, and some variations of the car have run in several events in Japan.
The NISSAN NISMO GT-R RC is the latest entry to the RC (Racing Competition) line of high performance, production model race cars developed and outfitted by NISMO. It's built up from the world renowned, top performance NISSAN GT-R (R35) road car. The body has been lightened, fitted for slick tires and equipped with safety equipment to ready it for competition use. During the car's development, it was entered in the 2010 SUPER TAIKYU Round 4 at Fuji, where it confirmed its high performance, reliability and durability.
The RC is made to order at a suggested retail price of 20,790,000 yen ~$250,000 USD . The only thing they say about horsepower is that it exceeds 485 ps and 60 kg/m of torque.  Typical Japanese understatement.  Considering the 2012 GT-R is 530 hp, this car should make a little more horsepower than that car.
