Nissan Refurbished Its “Star Supercar” And This Is What It Looks Like

The Japanese firm itself refers to the GT-R as its “star supercar” and it is well deserved. Today, ladies and gentlemen, we’re going to dive into the new version of Godzilla. join us.

A facelifted version of the GT-R has been introduced, though it will hit the market only in the second half of this year. Sure enough, we are in front of a contemporary classic: A supercar that embodies the entire identity of Japanese industry,

The New GT-R Isn’t Electric And That’s No Small Thing, The new version of the GT-R continues to be 100% combustion, respecting the firm’s sporting tradition. Remember that the R33 and R34 versions of this supercar were an extension “boom” for Nissan as far back as the 1990s and early 2000s.

There, in this context, the GT-R gained a reputation for high-end competition and became a fetish for lovers of street sports cars., Let’s remember that this car flaunts track performance, but it’s perfectly legal for daily city use because it has the relevant symmetry,

Nissan downplays speculation about future of electric GT-R, The 2022 recall in Europe, for reasons we’ll explain later, had put the supercar between a rock and a hard place. Even in the “corridors” of the industry theorized that Nissan would withdraw the GT-R from the market, as for example Mercedes-AMG did with its GT model.

Nissan to unveil the new GT-R at the 2023 Tokyo Motor Show, There, in front of the exclusive press and competing factories, he unveiled what he treasured: a redesigned GT-R that didn’t emit combustion. Nissan’s Director of Operations, Ashwani Gupta, was in charge of clarifying that this is not a new generation of the GT-R, but that the new example joins the current generation, the “R35 Generation”.

The Truth Is That The GT-R’s Body Has Been Updated—Ladies And Gentlemen, Unlike the one presented in 2017, the updated one is more sophisticated and inspires more “violence”. The reason for this feeling is the more refined and elongated headlights, new LED secondary lights in the lower front area and well-defined lines in the side area.

Ashwini Gupta announced at the presentation about this aspect: “With a new grille design, state-of-the-art technologies and workmanship, the new model is the pinnacle of the GT-R R35.” There are minimal changes in the rear area. Nissan understands well that this part of the GT-R is the most memorable and iconic: A major revision of it would discard decades of built-up aesthetics.

In the case of a supercar, its market breadth – as you’ll be comfortable with – is rather sparse. Not many people are potential buyers of such a harsh, consuming and – it must be said – noisy car. That is why Nissan does not touch the rear area and maintains the essence of the GT-R: so as not to lose the respect of its lovers.,

The new Nissan GT-R will have a famous front and longitudinal engine: this is the one that has been installed since 2022. it has the potential 3.8L V-Six, Biturbo, This combination allows for a maximum power of 572 CV, while its maximum torque stands at 633 Nm.

As for the transmission, it is a dual-clutch, six-speed automatic and powers both the axles from the GT-R.

Will the GT-R get revenge in the EU?

The novelty, of course, was deeply entrenched in the hearts of fans of sports cars living in the European region. Nissan had decided to discontinue production of the GT-R, with the decision maturing in 2021 and notified in 2022.

Nissan argued that the decision has been taken because of new noise regulations that will come into force in the European Union and the United Kingdom by July 1, 2022. ,

As we mentioned earlier, The Nissan GT-R Isn’t Just Another Car, Within automotive culture, it represents the sporty style of Japan, and this style has been declared in various markets around the world from the last decade of the last century to the present day. The Nissan GT-R has been on the market in Europe for 13 years.

And this is the first step in European regulations. Note: By 2026 the legal limit for car loudness will be only 68dB. So, as we know, we live in a time of strong paradigm shift. Electrification of propulsion and noise reduction of cars has persisted, at least in the European continent.

Because of this, there was increased speculation confirming the GT-R on an electrified lap. This will definitely happen in the near future. The truth is that Nissan surprises by delivering the new GT-R even with 100% of its propulsion based on combustion.

From the Nissan side, they have not announced their market price yet. The firm confirmed that the first units will arrive in Japan this fall and that their arrival will then be planned in various markets around the world. It remains to be seen whether the GT-R will be marketed in the European region. Remember that the GT-R described is the Nissan Edition, not the Nissan NISMO Edition.,
