We got an early look at an un-liveried version of the Nissan GT-R GT500 race car testing at Suzuka back in October. Nissan has finally revealed the final version today at the Tokyo Auto Salon complete with its all-new paint scheme that will be featured across all of Nissan motorsport in 2008. The design is a result of close cooperation between Nissan and NISMO with some input from a NISMO enthusiasts club. The red signifies Nissan's passion for racing while the black symbolizes the extreme performance of the GT-R.

Technical details and specifications have yet to be released, but we should be getting the official numbers by the end of the month. For now, check out the new photos in the gallery below or follow the jump for a video of the GT-R race car on track and the press release from Nissan.
