The 2024 Nissan GT-R will be available as a carryover after a short hiatus in 2023. The 2024 GT-R will receive some upgrades over its predecessor. These and all other details about the GT-R will be discussed below.
Although the current-generation GT-R was introduced in 2009, it has been available for sale ever since. However, Nissan has made many updates to the vehicle over the years to keep pace with its competitors. Since its inception, the GT-R has seen power gains, interior, suspension, and software updates. The 2024 model year will mark its seventh major update.
2024 Nissan GT-R Redesign
The GT-R’s new front grille will be a much-improved design. While the new design is familiar, it adds modernity and a more sleek look. The GT-R received new aerodynamics to increase downforce. Amazingly, Nissan was able to achieve this feat without increasing the car’s drag coefficient.
The even-higher-performance GT-R NISMO gains aggressive new aerodynamics, predominantly a larger rear wing. Redesigned NISMO’s front lip, canards, and rear diffuser were also made. The NISMO’s front differential with limited slip is also available for the first time.
The R35 Nissan GT-R was a throwback to the older GT-R models. Certain design elements have been retained in some form or another, including the quad-shaped taillights. We have seen many notable redesigns over the years, but this is the most important. In 2017, the R35’s styling was heavily updated. It now looks more in tune with other less exclusive Nissan models, especially in its front-end section.
T-Spec (which is limited to 100 units) and a new NISMO edition were the two special editions that were unveiled at Tokyo Auto Show 2023. The T-Spec pays homage to the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R R M-Spec and V-Spec II Nur models. The 2024 GT-R T-Spec also features a new version (color code JW0) of the Millennium Jade paint, which appears to be less saturated that the 2022 R35 T-Spec.
The R34-inspired front grille design is heavily resemblant to the new one. The retro design element is complemented by a new front cover and LED lights. Both versions include the NACA ducts on both the front and back hoods. The NISMO has a carbon-fiber hood that is unique to this model.
The body kit includes new side skirts and rear diffusers. It also features new rear-wing designs for the T-Spec as well as a cleaner front-end design. This improves aerodynamics and reduces drag. At the rear, the R34 spirit continues with a redesign of the rear bumper that features a horizontal line running through the middle. This is similar to the 1999 GT-R. This new design isn’t limited to the R34 GT-R model. The 2024 GT-R T-Spec’s rear wing is more angular than ever and invokes R32 GT-R.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R T-Spec is available in eight colors that are identical to the 2022 model. The revised colors, Millennium Jade (and Midnight Purple) are now available. Five colors are available for the 2024 NISMO GT-R. All of these colors are similar to last year’s GT-R NISMO. The R35 NISMO GT-R is more track-oriented than the T-Spec. It has more blacked-out exterior trim and exposed carbon fiber.
With a 2017 4BA refresh, the interior of the Nissan GT-R already received a much-needed overhaul. The same design was retained for the model year 2024, making it more luxurious and elegant. Along with Apple CarPlay, a 10-speaker Bose stereo system, and Apple CarPlay, the familiar eight-inch touchscreen is back. NISMO models feature the most significant interior upgrades. You can see more Alcantara inlays, but the most important feature is the new carbon-fiber bucket seats with exposed frames and Alcantara Inserts. These seats are said to improve upper and lower lateral support, Nissan claims.
You won’t be surprised, despite all the nostalgia that the 2024 Nissan GT-R displays on the surface. New suspension tweaks have been made to the R35’s Lotus-designed chassis. This makes it more comfortable and delivers even greater performance. The GT-R can accelerate out of corners with the ferocity that befits its Godzilla nickname.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R will also have a new exhaust system. The Y-shaped section distributes exhaust gases more evenly and helps in extraction. It also improves the sound quality of the twin-turbo V-6. Although the engine output is unchanged, there was a noticeable difference between the 2017 model-year GT-R and the 2020 model-year GT-R. Both have supposedly the same 565-horsepower figures along with 467 pound-feet (633Nm) of torque. From the familiar 3.8-liter VR38 DETT unit, 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet (652 Nm) are still used by the NISMO.
The R35’s engine and chassis have proven resilient, but it is the gearbox that most age this Japanese sports car. Although the six-speed DCT was co-developed by BorgWarner, it can shift in R-Mode in 0.15 seconds. However, it hasn’t been as refined over time as other units.
2024 Nissan GT-R Price & Release Date
Although no pricing information has been released, the starting price of the 2024 Nissan GT-R will be $117,000. When developing the R35, Nissan had in mind the Porsche 911 Turbo. Although the R35 has seen two new generations, the expected starting price for the 2024 Nissan GT-R is $117,000.
We believe that Godzilla offers a remarkable bang for your buck, considering the 992 Turbo’s current starting price of $182,000. The NISMO is expected to sell for around $215,000. It’s almost impossible to say whether it is worth the extra cost for the more track-oriented variant. It’s not important that we gave a proper farewell to one of the most beloved sports cars ever made.
