The next-generation Nissan GT-R is set to feature hybrid technology that will closely align it with the firm’s recently announced Le Mans prototype.

The Japanese manufacturer recently revealed that its LMP1 challenger – which will compete at La Sarthe in 2015 – will be known as the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo, creating a link with the iconic GT-R road car, the current version of which is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 engine which delivers 542bhp and 463lb ft of torque.

Although Nissan hasn’t laid out full technical details of its LMP racer – which will compete against Porsche, Audi and Toyota next year – it looks set to have a hybrid powertrain, although Nismo chiefs have vowed that its machine will be "a little bit different" from those of their rivals.
