First time in many years, the 2024 Nissan GT-R receives an update. We’re not alone in saying that it needs an update. The current car looks good, but its performance is not up to par. For 2024, the car will not only get a new look but also a brand-new NISMO model that is even more powerful.
2024 Nissan GT-R NISMO Version Review
Nissan is a little early in its product cycle to announce cars for 2024. The updated 2024 GT-R will be available this summer. The 2024 GT-R is now available in three different flavors: Premium, T Spec, and NISMO. The bodywork of the new car has been revised, and it now features a lower fascia and a different rear wing that reduces drag and increases downforce. The Premium and T Spec cars have a staggering 565 horsepower.
The Premium is the base model, while the TSpec gets an upgraded body package without the performance upgrade of the NISMO. Nissan says that the T-Spec gets upgraded rotors and Brembo brakes from NISMO. The T-Spec interior is also unique, with a green color.
The 2024 GT-R NISMO will add 45 horsepower to its V-6, for a total of 600 turbocharged horses. The turbos came from Nissan’s GT3 racing car. NISMO also includes new wheels, carbon fiber hoods, different engine covers, and for the first time, a limited-slip differential on the front axle. Most people forget that the GT-R has an all-wheel drive.
NISMO’s new carbon-ceramic braking system is 36 pounds lighter, allowing it to stop faster. It also has a new Vehicle Dynamic Control tuned for NISMO, which improves traction. The NISMO also receives an improved transmission, Recaro seating, and increased torsional stiffness.
The GT-R NISMO rides agile and responsive thanks to the precision engineering of its independent double-wishbone and multi-link aluminum suspensions. These finely tuned components combine to create a driving experience we can safely say is exhilarating, yet effortless. Bilstein DampTronic Shock Absorbers are standard on the GT-R and offer a level of customization that allows the driver to select from three settings: Normal (default), Comfort (standard), and R. This gives the driver the ability to customize the ride to suit their needs.
The Nissan GT-R’s center console is equipped with large, tactile knobs that allow drivers to adjust NISMO settings for the engine, transmission, and suspension. The intuitive design allows the driver to easily adjust the settings for their driving style.
The GT-R NISMO is now equipped with a stylish and sleek NISMO Appearance package, which adds an extra touch to its already impressive sports car. This package includes RAYS 20-inch forged wheels with bold red accents to complement the car’s sleek looks. The carmaker also gave the carbon fiber hood a glossy, striking finish with a special clear coat. Nissan also updated the design of the engine cover to give the car a sporty, elegant look.
The GT-R NISMO offers, in addition to the NISMO Appearance Package and Stealth Gray, a new exclusive NISMO shade. The dark, mysterious color adds mystery and sophistication. It makes the car stand out and exudes a feeling of power and elegance.
2024 Nissan GT-R NISMO Version Price & Release Date
The Nissan GT-R premium for 2024 starts at $120 990. The GT-R T-Spec costs $140,990 and the GTR-NISMO adds an incredible $100,000 to the price of the base model. Although an additional 45 horsepower, a reduced curb weight, and some incredible brakes might sound like a big improvement, it’s not. You’re unlikely to find roads that will allow you to fully exploit this technology and performance. If you happen to come across a Porsche 911 on the road, you will be able to compete with it.
The T-Spec is a great option for 2024. The NISMO body kit and improved brakes are available without spending NISMO dollars. There are also so many shops that offer aftermarket tuning that you will be able to find one that can easily boost your GT-R beyond 600 horsepower.
