Scoring back-to-back wins in the Super GT Championship is a tall order but the NISMO team served it up against its top racing counterparts in Asia. In 2015, it came down to the final 53-lap race at Twin Ring Motegi, a race that saw weather constantly upsetting track conditions. Drivers Tsugio Matsuda and Ronnie Quintarelli pushed their GT-R from 12th place to second to ensure capturing a consecutive championship. Competition among other Nissan-powered teams and factory-backed efforts from Lexus and Honda makes this series a proving ground for design and technology. The GT-R is legendary for its performance; this race-bred strain represents best-in-class ability and will give you the upper-hand in any track battle.

The 2015 Nissan Nismo Motul Autech GT-R, also known as the Nissan GT-R GT500, is a GT racing car that appears in various Forza titles in two livery variants with the number designations #1 and #23.

The #1 variant appears in Forza Motorsport 6 as part of the Polo Red Car Pack, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex as part of the Hyper Endurance Car Pack, and in Forza Horizon 3 as part of the Motorsport All-Stars Car Pack.

The #23 variant is featured in both the demo and standard release of Forza Motorsport 7.


The Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500 uses a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing 550 hp (410 kW) and 398 ft·lb (540 N·m) of torque. The car uses a 7-speed transmission powering the rear wheels and features visual modifications typical of Super GT cars, including front bumper canards, a large rear wing, and side bumper canards, all of which work in conjunction to generate large amounts of downforce.

The Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500, as expected of a GT500 race car, specializes in handling and braking, although this does put its speed capabilities at stake with its low top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). When driving through corners, the GT-R GT500 steers very sharply, especially at speeds of 120 mph (193 km/h), due to the huge amount of generated downforce. With this, the GT-R Nismo is best used for handling-focused tracks.

In Forza Horizon 3, the GT-R Nismo is now the best-handling car in the entire game, with a maximum cornering stat of 1.91 Gs at 120 mph (193 km/h) with a handling-oriented upgrade setup. This makes it turn even more sharply in corners when compared to the likes of the Ferrari FXX K and Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, although again, given the GT-R Nismo's low top speed, it should best be used for handling-focused tracks. When tuned properly, it can reach 195 mph (314 km/h) and still corner at the aforementioned maximum cornering stats. For this reason, it can be used to set lap records in S2 Class Rivals events on handling-focused tracks.


  • In the Forza games, the Nissan Nismo Motul Autech GT-R's name is displayed in all capital letters except for the manufacturer name.
