2024 Nissan GT-R Revealed Along With T-Spec And NISMO Special Edition
The Nissan GT-R soldiers on one more year with revisions and 2 new editions.
The Nissan GT-R may be old, but it is undeniably still one of Japan’s best performance cars. The GT-R, which first debuted in 2009, gets another update for 2024 in Japan. It’s still powered by the VR38DETT 3.8L twin turbo V6 engine and still gets a 6-speed dual clutch transmission.
For 2024, the GT-R gets better aerodynamics, refined ride quality, and better NVH characteristics. All this while maintaining the engine’s output of 570PS and 637Nm of torque.
There will also be a new GT-R Premium Edition T-spec (T stands for trend and traction). This version gets specially tuned suspension and carbon disk brakes for better handling and responsiveness.
Finally, there’s a new GT-R NISMO which gets a specially enhanced version of the same engine this time with an output of 600PS and 652Nm of torque. The engine features high-precision, weight-balanced parts such as piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft as well as a clear-coated NISMO-exclusive carbon engine hood.
What’s more, the car comes with further refined aerodynamics, advanced suspension tuning, as well as the addition of a mechanical limited slip differential to the front final drive. This version also gets Recaro carbon backed bucket seats redesigned for enhanced drive quality.
Here’s the press release with more.
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 market in the coming spring and will be joined by the NISMO versions, planned to go on sale in summer.
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.
The models feature improved aerodynamics and a refined ride quality. While maintaining horsepower, noise and vibration have been reduced and the sound carefully tuned to enhance onboard comfort.
T-spec represents the GT-R’s philosophy of leading and shaping the times and is inspired by the words trend and traction. 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).
