The Nissan GT-R: A Classic with a New Tricks As one of the oldest models in Nissan's lineup, the GT-R has been around for quite some time. But for the 2024 model year, the GT-R has undergone a significant facelift, making its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The new version boasts a redesigned front grille, suspension improvements, and two new special equipment packages.
At first glance, it may be hard to spot the differences, but a closer look reveals a redesign of the radiator grille and front fascia, with straighter lines and a more symmetrical face.
According to Nissan, the facelift has improved aerodynamic performance and the platform offers a more comfortable ride while reducing noise and vibration.
For those who think the GT-R is old, Nissan has a surprise in store with the powerful 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo engine that develops 562 horsepower, or 591 horsepower in the case of the Nismo version.
Nismo Special Version
The Nismo Special version received additional aerodynamic improvements with a focus on performance, and the suspension was refined. A mechanical limited-slip differential is linked to the front axle for better grip, and a carbon Nismo hood and new black carbon Recaro seats are a refresh for 2024.
The engine received some lighter parts, and Nissan claims that the Nismo Special version for 2024 has the best performance of all versions of the GT-R model. T-Spec Version For those who want to stand out even more, there is a T-Spec version that is positioned above the Premium and uses a version of the 3.8-liter 6-cylinder twin-turbo engine that delivers 562 horsepower.
In this case too, the suspension has been refined for a better balance between comfort and performance. This version is also equipped with a set of carbon disc brakes. Sales in Japan begin in the spring, but unfortunately, the GT-R model is no longer available in Europe due to restrictions related to gas emissions.
The Nissan GT-R is no longer available in many European countries due to stricter emissions standards, according to official confirmation from Nissan. This includes countries such as The Netherlands, Italy, and Spain. However, it's still possible to order one in Germany and Belgium.
