Nissan unveils the 2024 GT-R at the Tokyo Auto Salon, and the 16-year-old sports coupe gets a new look for the latest model year, plus a T-Spec trim option last seen in 2021. Despite the changes and the increased downforce, Nissan was able to keep the GT-R’s coefficient of drag unchanged at 0.26 from last year’s model.
New to the 2024 model are the redesigned front and rear fascias, now coming with a broader grille opening, a thinner front grille mesh, a reshaped front bumper with hexagonal-shaped auxiliary lights, and a new quad tail lights lens design. The redesigned rear bumpers’ look will depend on which of the eight available model options you choose: current options include ‘Pure,’ ‘Black,’ ‘Premium,’ ‘Premium T-spec,’ ‘Track engineered by Nismo,’ a T-Spec version of that, and two Nismo editions.
Its limited edition T-spec trim comes in two exclusive colors this time around: Millenium Jade, previously only available on the R34 V-Spec II Nür, and Midnight Purple, a new take on the R-34 GT-R V-Spec’s Midnight Purple III. The T-spec also gets carbon-ceramic brakes from the Nismo, wider front fenders, Nismo dynamic vehicle control, gold-painted RAYS 20-inch forged Nismo wheels, Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600 tires, and T-spec badging. Inside, drivers are welcomed with dark Mori Green interior upholstery, semi-aniline, and suede front bucket fabric.
The track-designed full-Motorsport Nismo features an exclusive Stealth Gray paint option, Recaro seats, wider tires, six-piston front brake calipers, four-piston rear calipers, carbon-ceramic brake rotors, larger rear wings on swan-neck supports, a front limited-slip differential, and redesigned front lip, rear diffuser, and canards. A new Nismo appearance package is available with exclusive red-accented RAYS forged 20-inch wheels, a carbon-fiber hood, and an exclusive engine cover design.
Powering the 2024 GT-R is the same 4WD powertrain as last year’s model, the 3.8-liter twin-turbo VR38DETT. The Premium and T-spec have the same 565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque, while the upgraded Nismo variant has 600 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque, all going through a six-speed dual-clutch transaxle and Nissan’s ATTESA electronic torque-split all-wheel-drive system.
The GT-R should see deliveries this spring, with the NISMO to follow in the summer. No pricing details have been released just yet but stay tuned as more details come out.
