Nissan has presented the new GT-R R35 in Tokyo, although after the withdrawal from Europe, they will be reserved only for the Japanese market.
Next year there will be a new Nissan GT-R, following the brand’s announcement at the Tokyo Auto Salon. A restyling with new versions that, although they are great news for lovers of sports cars and Japanese cars, will not leave the JDM ( Japanese Domestic Market ).
After the abandonment of the Nissan car in Europe, only the Japanese market resists parting with the heir to the Skyline with new versions that will be launched in the spring of 2024. In essence, they have developed improved aerodynamics and new aesthetic details along with mechanical elements. developed as suspensions or carbon-ceramic brakes.
Design of the new Nissan GT-R 2024
In general, the changes have not been drastic. The front grille is smaller and the front wing has been redesigned, with a square air outlet and gills. The optics have received hexagonal LED daytime running lights and the rear groups have also been updated.
All these changes together with the different wings of the car achieve a drag coefficient of 0.26 Cx standard between the Nissan GT-R T-spec and GT-R Nismo versions. It is the Nismo edition that features the aforementioned details and with the most aggressive look.
The T-spec will carry a lower spoiler with a less prominent front bumper, wings, and side skirts, in addition to the absence of a diffuser like its brother and the lightened components of the entire carbon fiber bodywork such as the hood, the roof, the tailgate or the rear-view mirrors.
As a curiosity, the GT-R T-spec will bring back two iconic colors of the Nissan Skyline: Millennium Jade and Midnight Purple along with golden wheels and special badges in the interior (because those tones were already missed).
Inside we find the same aesthetics of the last generation with hardly any changes, except for the available finishes of the upholstery and the Recaro bucket seats in soft fabric and with a carbon backrest.
The 3.8-liter twin-turbo VR38DETT V6 engine will develop 570PS for the GT-R T-spec version or 600PS and 652Nm of peak torque in the Nissan GT-R Nismo. Both with the classic all-wheel drive and the 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The high-performance edition incorporates turbochargers derived from the GT3 race car with increased torsional rigidity and even more powerful braking. Although, the biggest addition to this new version of the sports car will be a self-locking front differential (common to all finishes).
There has also been a substantial change to the exhaust line, as confirmed at the event, which positively influences the engine’s exhaust and, of course, the sensational sound of the twin-turbo V6.
As for the measurements, the two finishes are also the same on all axes except for the length (10 mm difference), since the R35 Nismo will measure 4,700 mm long, 1,895 mm wide, and 1,370 mm high with a distance between axes of 2,780 mm.
At the moment, no price or number of units has been confirmed, as well as whether there is a possibility of seeing the car in the United States or other markets. At the moment, it will be time to wait a few months for more information.
