Recently, Nissan unveiled the 2024 GT-R at the Tokyo Auto Salon. With revised aerodynamics and other minor improvements, GT-R has remained unchanged for over a decade i.e about 16 years since it first launched.
The T-Spec trim level has returned in the 2024 models. It contains carbon-ceramic brakes from the Nismo as well as wider front fenders, gold painted version of RAYS 20-inch forged Nismo wheels, and dynamic vehicle control.
Premium and T-Spec have the same 565 horsepower and 467Nm torque from a twin-turbo 3.8 l V-6 engine that’s hand assembled. The interiors are slightly unique varying from the different models mainly from the stitching and badges.
The upgraded Nismo variant is tuned to 600 hp at 6800rpm and a torque of 481 Nm at 3600 rpm. Power is delivered to all four wheels via the standard AWD (ATTESA ET-S) system which can vary its front-to-rear torque split depending on the driver or situation.
Shifting occurs via the rear-mounted 6-speed dual-clutch auto with manual transmission and the front engine is a twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve V-6. The Nismo has wider tires, carbon ceramic brake rotors, and 6-piston front brake calipers. The new swan neck rear wing spoiler is slightly larger than before to increase downforce without hampering drag. The canards, front lip, and rear diffuser are also redesigned. The front grille is fitted with a thinner mesh to improve cooling and reduce drag.
Despite a few changes, the Nismo, Premium, and T-Spec retain the 2-door-coupe design and a front-engine AWD with a capacity of 4 passengers.
