GT23 – In pursuit of engineering perfection

JRM Group

7th April 2021

JRM unveil their GT23 supercar in full for the first time, showing the finished exterior design and confirming its ground-breaking technical specifications. The GT23 has been engineered to be the purest, most driver-centric car built for the track and road ready ever. Enhancing the already acclaimed Nissan GT-R GT3, Elliot Dason-Barber – Technical Director is leading the team at the JRM Headquarters in Daventry – UK, building customer versions of this highly anticipated car.

The GT23 promises to deliver an unsurpassed driving experience. It is powered by a race ready 3.8-litre V6 Twin Turbo and features one of the most powerful aerodynamic packages ever seen on a road car. In addition to the race capable aerodynamic performance, a full carbon body & floor help to deliver an impressive 500bhp per ton.

The reveal of the car will be the first time this limited-edition supercar will have been seen from the team that celebrated as World Champions in the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT1 in 2011. Celebrating the 10-year relationship with the global brand, and now presenting something truly special.

The JRM designed GT23 has been penned to not only celebrate the illustrious heritage of the GT-R GT3 but also to apply the Japanese car manufacture Nissan who often enter their cars numbered “23” into motorsports events. The pronunciations of “2” and “3” in Japanese are “Ni” (2) and “San” (3).

“The objectives of the project were always to road legalise a 2015MY GT-R GT3 race car. To make it friendly enough to be driven on the road but competent enough that you receive a genuine race car experience when you take it to the track. The GT-R GT3 did not have flaws, it only had limitations.” – Elliot Dason-Barber, Technical Director

Any road car has limitations when you try and take it to the level of a race car so by starting with the GT23 as a race car provides the driver with a real race car experience on track whilst taming the car for road use purposes, making the GT23 unique by having all of the attributes of a race car but then being able to pull up to a regular fuel station to fill up. A perfect example of how the car has been re-engineered to be able to take ‘pump gas’ unlike a race car but still ensuring its road legal.

The essence of the GT23 project was performance through agility. There are plenty of examples of +1000bhp GTR’s, but we wanted to enhance the performance of the car in all directions and this could only be achieved by developing all the systems on the car including chassis structure, engine position, aerodynamics, brakes, suspension, steering, transmission and even cooling.
