A high-performance Nissan GT-R Nismo is under development and will be the fastest version yet of the company's flagship model.
Andy Palmer, Nissan's vice-president for product planning, confirmed the GT-R Nismo is close to release.
He said: 'I drove it yesterday, and it is very fast.'
However, he did not confirm any technical details on the GT-R Nismo.
The GT-R Nismo is expected to make its debut at the Tokyo motor show later this year.
