Following the opening of its new headquarters and development centre, Nismo is set to develop a line-up of performance-orientated Nissans.
Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan, said: "It would be unthinkable for us to develop a range of Nismo road cars without including the GT-R. The standard road car is a global supercar and the GTR's performance on track reflects the passion and talents of the Nismo team. The GT-R Nismo will be special."
Currently the standard GT-R, which is powered by a 542bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6, is capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in three seconds flat.
"We know that enthusiasts around the world will be itching to know more about the forthcoming GT-R Nismo," said Shoichi Miyatani, president of Nismo.
"It's too preliminary to share any details yet, but fans can be certain we'll be applying all of our motorsport expertise to creating a GT-R Nismo worthy of the name."
