2024 Nissan GT-R unveiled in Japan - Tweaked face, same engine
Another year, another facelift
Nissan today unveiled the new Japan-market GT-R, including two special editions - the Nissan GT-R Premium edition T-spec, and Nissan GT-R NISMO Special edition.
The 2024 models are planned to hit the Japanese market in a few momths and will be joined by the NISMO versions, planned to go on sale in the third quarter of the year.
Looking almost identical to the outgoing version, enhancements on the new Nissan GT-R are very subtle, beginning from the redesigned front end which now features new headlights, a new grille design as well as new hexagonal daytime running lights.
At the rear, the exhaust trim has been redesigned as well, in addition to a new F1-inspired brake lights. Moving up the ladder, there is the GT-R T-spec that is now equipped with specially set suspension and carbon disc brakes, delivering the pleasure of a smooth ride and responsive handling.
Last but not least, there is the Nissan GT-R Nismo which 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).
Speaking of the engine, power still comes courtesy of the VR38DETT, V6 twin-turbo charged DOHC engine producing 570 PS and 637 Nm of torque. Sending all that power to the four wheels is the GR6 dual clutch transmission.
The GT-R Nismo Edition however gets a tuned version of the aforementioned engine which kicks out 600 PS and 652 Nm of maximum torque. The gearbox is the same as the other variants.
With “evolving toward ultimate driving pleasure” as its product concept, the Nissan GT-R continues to enhance its status as a premium sports car.
The new models represent the next level of balance between speed and ride quality. "Fronted with a new grille design, cutting-edge technologies and craftsmanship, the new models are the pinnacle of the GT-R R35," said Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta
