Nissan unveiled the 2024 GT-R at the Tokyo Auto Salon this week, wearing a sporty facelift. In addition to announcing a host of new and familiar options for the 16-year-old sports car.
For 2024, the Nissan GT-R brings back the Millenium Jade and Midnight Purple paint colors, which will look good on the car’s redesigned front and rear fascia. In addition, the 2024 Nissan GT-R wears a new rear wing said to be 10 percent larger. New features include a carbon appearance package and a front limited-slip differential – a first for the GT-R. As part of its improved aerodynamics, the car’s front grille uses a thinner mesh for better cooling while helping to reduce drag.
For performance, the 2024 Nissan GT-R continues its hand-assembled twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 with power outputs ranging by variant and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The GT-R Premium and T-Spec produce 565 horsepower and 467 lb.-ft of torque, while the upscale GT-R Nismo flexes 600 hp and 487 lb.-ft. As standard, the GT-R puts its power to the road using an all-wheel drive system. However, the system can split the engine’s torque depending on the driver’s preference and road conditions.
Performance upgrades for the 2024 Nissan GT-R T-Spec include carbon ceramic brake rotors, wider front fenders, and 20-inch forged Nismo wheels. As for the Nismo trim level, these GT-Rs sport a larger rear wing, redesigned front lip, rear diffuser, and exclusive, red-accented RAYS forged 20-inch wheels, in addition to a Stealth Gray color option and unique engine cover design. Pricing for the 2024 Nissan GT-R schedule will be announced later this year.
