The 2024 Nissan GT-R is offered in three grades, starting with the GT-R Premium and T-spec® with 565 horsepower. The 600-horsepower GT-R NISMO offers an even more exceptional level of performance, with engineering drawn directly from motorsports applications.
All 2024 Nissan GT-R models have been extensively revised to increase downforce and reduce drag, resulting in confident, responsive handling. These extensive revisions include redesigned front and rear fascias, optimized bumper sides, revised grille shapes, and reshaped rear wings.
Engineers even closely scrutinized the mesh used in the front grille, using a thinner mesh to further enhance cooling and reduce drag. Impressively, GT-R’s drag coefficient is unchanged at 0.26 Cd despite the increase in downforce.
The GT-R NISMO’s rear wing has a new design, with swan neck-style supports and an almost 10% larger surface area. The curvature of the wing has been specifically designed to optimize drag and downforce. The team also revised the front lip, rear diffuser, and canards.
The GT-R T-spec returns for the 2024 model year and adds many visual and mechanical enhancements to the already capable Premium. The new package includes GT-R NISMO carbon-ceramic brakes, a gold-painted version of the NISMO’s RAYS® 20-inch forged wheels, NISMO-tuned Vehicle Dynamic Control, and wider front fenders. It also includes special badging inside and out, a dark Mori Green upholstery color, and a combination of semi-aniline and suede upholstery for the front seats.
The T-spec is available in two exclusive colors that appeal to GT-R enthusiasts, who have long revered the nameplate’s rarest colors. The first is Millennium Jade, which pays homage to one of the rarest GT-Rs ever, the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür. The second T-spec-exclusive paint is Midnight Purple, a modern interpretation of the Midnight Purple III color made famous on the R34 GT-R V-Spec.
The GT-R NISMO is available with the NISMO Appearance Package, which includes exclusive red-accented RAYS forged 20-inch wheels, a unique clear coat applied to the carbon fiber hood, and an exclusive engine cover design. The GT-R NISMO also offers a new NISMO-exclusive paint color: Stealth Gray.
The 24-valve, twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine in the 2024 Nissan GT-R was hand-assembled by Takumi technicians and is rated at 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. A standard titanium exhaust system is also included with the engine.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R is equipped with a standard ATTESA ET-S all-wheel-drive system that can vary its front-to-rear torque split, depending on driving scenario, for optimum driving feel and performance. The standard 6-speed dual-clutch transaxle is mounted in the rear to optimize weight distribution, and features aggressive downshifts as well as steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for manual control.
The GT-R’s dynamic ride and handling is brought to life thanks to the expertly tuned independent double-wishbone front and independent multi-link rear suspensions. Standard Bilstein® DampTronic shock absorbers allow for three driver-selectable suspension modes: Normal, Comfort, and R. These three modes combine varying levels of driving comfort with the sport-like responsive handling that the GT-R is known for. The engine, transmission and suspension settings are controlled by large, tactile switches located on the car’s center console.
The GT-R Premium is equipped with a Nissan and Brembo® jointly developed braking system with six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers. Lightweight RAYS® 20-inch wheels shod with Dunlop high-performance summer tires connect the car to the road.
The GT-R T-spec is equipped with Brembo® brakes with carbon-ceramic rotors from the GT-R NISMO, along with gold-painted RAYS wheels wearing Dunlop® SP Sport Maxx GT600 ultra-high-performance run-flat tires.
The GT-R’s interior design is inspired by a horizontal-flow dashboard, the seats are lightweight, and the Nappa leather appointments are swathed in leather.
The GT-R T-spec model features an exclusive dark Mori Green upholstery throughout, with a combination semi-aniline and suede treatment for the front seats. The console and kick plates feature unique logos. The exterior of the car is highlighted by T-spec emblems on the trunk.
The NissanConnect infotainment system with an 8-inch multi-touch display features Apple CarPlay, a navigation system, Bluetooth® wireless technology, HD Radio®, SiriusXM® Traffic, and Travel Link™ (weather, fuel prices, movie listings, and stock info).
The instrument display also features GT-R-specific, customizable data pages that show key vehicle information, including coolant and oil temperature, transmission gear selection, g-forces, and even a lap timer.
The GT-R offers drivers a variety of premium convenience features, including a Bose® 11-speaker audio system with Active Noise Cancellation and dual-zone automatic climate control. The front seats also feature heated surfaces, and the vehicle comes with front and rear parking sensors.
The GT-R NISMO is a more extreme version of the GT-R2 and is built for those seeking an even greater level of capability.
In addition to a revised aerodynamic body, the new GT-R NISMO benefits from a front limited-slip differential for the first time. The differential improves the driving experience by ensuring that the car follows the driver’s inputs and exemplifies NISMO’s approach to iterative enhancements that add performance with each generation.
The Nissan GT-R NISMO was extensively enhanced for the 2020 model year. It features new turbochargers taken from the GT3 racecar, an enhanced transmission shift control, lighter components, increased use of lightweight carbon fiber components, and upgrades to the brakes, wheels, and tires. Compared to GT-R Premium, it also has an increased horsepower rating.
The NISMO edition of the GT-R is rated for 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque, thanks to significantly enhanced engine responsiveness.
The NISMO’s improved power and grip are complemented by Brembo® brakes with large, 16.1-inch carbon-ceramic rotors at the front and 15.3 inches in the back. The rotors save 36 pounds of weight, while the high-strength calipers and high-friction brake pads contribute to a firmer brake pedal feeling.
The NISMO-exclusive bodywork was designed to improve cooling and aerodynamic downforce, while also lowering the center of gravity and improving handling. The roof is made from carbon fiber in order to reduce weight, while additional NISMO-exclusive carbon fiber panels include front and rear fascias, trunk lid, race-inspired rear wing, side sill covers, hood, and outside mirror housings.
The GT-R NISMO’s interior includes Recaro® seats with synthetic suede inserts, red stitching, and an Alcantara-appointed steering wheel with a red top stripe.
