Now, a leaked report published in Japan is suggesting that Nissan has plans to increase horsepower with the aid of an electric motor. Weeks ago, we heard the first rumblings of a Nissan GT-R performance hybrid, The report confirms that Nissan will go with a 3.8 liter twin turbocharged V6 worth 440hp paired with a 160 hp electric motor, similar to the combination used for the Infiniti Essence concept, which was built atop the GT-R platform.

The result will be a simultaneous boost in horsepower, up 100 hp from the current GT-R, and efficiency–up to 25 to 30 mpg. In the end, Nissan plans to offer a GT-R that offers the same high-end quickness and performance of the current model, while boosting fuel economy. The Nissan GT-R is already an absolute beast on the road capable of a 3.3-second 0 to 60. And with a base under $77,000 it’s the all-out performance sports car you can actually hope to own. Nissan’s current GT-R relies on a 473-hp twin-turbocharged V6 to pump out its enviable performance figures. According to a recent leak published in Japan’s Best Car Magazine, the next Godzilla coming to market will pair a 160-hp electric motor with a 440-hp engine with hopes of boosting performance even more. Though no hard specifications were given, it’s not hard to imagine this new GT-R tearing more expensive supercars to pieces.

GT-R was powered with lack of torque, courtesy of turbos. The concept of a new multi-dimensional performance machine that delivers “an ultimate supercar for anyone, anywhere, at anytime”. Starting from its magnetic, perfectly proportioned styling to a shorter wheelbase, shorter overall length and lower height  all the  delivers a truly distinctive driving experience.
