The Nissan GT-R nameplate is a legend in its own right with a long history of amazing performance cars. The replacement to the R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R, the Nissan GT-R, hit the market way back in 2009 giving the current platform a rather long production run. The car is also referred to by the model’s number designation of R35 and after a 14-year production run fans have been waiting patiently for the R36. The wait continues because the clever men in white coats at Nissan found more ways to improve on the R35 platform, the result of which was recently unveiled to the public in Japan. We like the changes, quite a lot in fact. That new interior is just brilliant. It’s been interesting seeing the evolution of this car, especially the changes that took the twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 from 358 kW to the current 441 kW in the special GT-R Nismo and the GT-R Nismo Special Edition. The resulting performance guarantees the buying public will lap this latest model up and we’ll no doubt be seeing the world’s tuning shops take them to unbelievable levels.

This new Nissan GT-R has a host of changes, like the new grille design, changes to the rear diffuser and a few aero changes to further improve aerodynamics. The ride quality has also been refined, which is hard to believe because having driven the 50th Anniversary edition in anger, the drive didn’t feel like it could be improved on. “The GT-R T-spec has been created to always be ahead of the times and to drive with robust grip. The Nissan GT-R Premium edition T-spec is now equipped with specially set suspension and carbon disc brakes, delivering the pleasure of a smooth ride and responsive handling. The Nissan GT-R NISMO maximizes the use of racing technologies. By refining aerodynamic performance, suspension tuning, and adding a mechanical limited-slip differential to the front final drive, this is the highest-performance GT-R ever. The exclusive Recaro carbon back bucket seats have been refreshed for enhanced drive quality, providing a unified feel with the car and increased comfort. The Nissan GT-R NISMO Special edition uses high-precision weight-balanced engine parts, such as piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft, and a clear-coated NISMO-exclusive carbon engine hood (with NACA ducts).” says Nissan. There are six trim levels with 419 kW and 637 Nm on tap and a further two special editions with 441 kW and 652 Nm. The car should start being seen in public before 2024.
