Even if it is not your main source of income, Nissan understands that a global carmaker must have its high-performance side, Like Mercedes-Benz, Like BMW, Like Honda. And even more so if the said record is picked up by a sports car that has inspired it to win lovers around the world.
We talk about the GT-R, Japan has a dizzyingly long and rich tradition of high-performance cars that are street legal but intended more for the track than any other use. Now, at the last Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan unveiled the GT-R 2024, though it hasn’t yet confirmed the exact launch date, nor its price.
GT-R, updated and confirmed with market price
Now it has happened, and in this article we are going to delve into this new version of GT-R. First, because we love supercars. Second, to take into account the dimension and context of what this car is and represents for the Japanese automotive industry in particular and for the whole world in general.
In terms of fanaticism, there are those who prefer the Toyota Supra, the Honda NSX and those like me who prefer Nissan’s Skyline and GT-R line within the rich Japanese tradition. The 2024 edition of the GT-R will continue to be 100% combustionTo respect the sporting tradition of the firm.
Let’s remember that the R33 and R34 versions of this supercar were a “boom” of expansion for Nissan in relation to the 1990s and 2000s. In this context, the GT-R gained a reputation for being sporty with high competition and became a fetish for lovers of street sports. Let’s remember that this car toys with track performance, but it is absolutely legal for daily city use as it has the relevant approvals.
Nissan and its “supercar emblem”
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 introduced the new GT-R at the 2023 Tokyo Motor Show. There, in front of the specialized press and competing factories, it unveiled what it prized: a new GT-R that doesn’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”.
2024 GT-R Design
The fact is that the GT-R’s body has been updated – to some extent –, 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.
Nissan GT-R 2024 Engine
The new Nissan GT-R will have a famous front and longitudinal engine: this is the one it’s riding through 2022, It has a capacity of 3.8 liters, six-cylinder V, housed in 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. Sometimes the different versions of the GT-R are confusing. What we are describing is the Nissan GT-R Premium Edition, which is the most basic one for reference.
This is followed by the T-Spec version and the NISMO GT-R version which is the harshest, The one who calls us today, let’s say, is traditional. It is noteworthy that the NISMO version, although it is legal to use it on public roads, is focused on track performance.
It is remarkable how its market value increases, as compared to a conventional version developed by NISMO almost doubles its value. This has always been the case with the current generation of the GT-R: applications of carbon fiber, body stiffness, track brakes—among other applications—add exponentially to the car’s overall value.
Nissan USA has confirmed the market price of its supercar in its various versions, clarifying that the NISMO version cannot be ordered yet, as it will have to wait until summer (“GT-R NISMO on sale this summer” goes to the”).
