It's been five years since Nissan's legendary GT-R supercar made its way stateside and now Nissan's performance division has unveiled the 2015 Nismo Nissan GT-R. Nissan is calling it the top-of the-line GT-R - the ultimate iteration of the supercar. But is it?

Let's talk numbers. The 2015 Nismo Nissan GT-R will be pushing out 591 ponies, roughly 46 horsepower more than the base model. The engine will deliver a massive 479 lb-ft of torque, compared to the 463 lb-ft of torque available on the base model. Redline is now at 6,800 RPM instead of the 6,400 RPM. As far as price, it's expected that the Nismo GT-R will be under $200,000.

Nismo swapped out the OEM turbos for massive turbo units originally used on the Nismo GT3 GT-R racecar. The exterior will feature a rear trunk-mounted spoiler, a carbon fiber front bumper, and carbon fiber front lip. Nissan says the advanced aerodynamics will generate over 220 pounds of additional downforce at speeds of 186mph.

The interior will also be getting a makeover. For the ultimate driving experience, Recaro seats with a carbon fiber skeleton are used. Drivers get to wrap their hands around a special steering wheel designed with three spokes, a red center mark, and red stitching. The most powerful GT-R will be unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show this Wednesday the 20th and will be available in the U.S., Japan and Europe next year. We can't wait to see the new Godzilla running the streets. What do you think?

Marcel Lech used to think 450 hp was all he needed to enjoy his Supra. Instead, he ended up with nearly 1,000 hp that, at best, gets used, weather permitting, only a few of days and just 2 seasons out of the year.
