First Look at the 2024 Nissan GT-R

  • Nissan unveiled the 2024 GT-R at the Tokyo Auto Salon
  • Nissan is bringing back the T-spec, along with Millenium Jade and Midnight Purple paint colors.
  • The 600-hp Nismo gets a new rear wing, which has grown by 10 percent, along with a unique carbon appearance package, it also earns a front limited-slip differential for the first time.

The first thing you’ll likely notice is the completely new front – a new grille that does away with the R35’s classic ‘V’ shaped nose, and a new lower bumper design and different fog lights.

The rear retains the quad-exhaust setup but gains a new bumper design too, depending on the model… and there are now eight to choose from, including the return of T-spec. There’s ‘Pure’, ‘Black’, ‘Premium’, ‘Premium T-spec’, ‘Track engineered by Nismo’, that again plus T-Spec, and a pair of proper Nismo editions.

All cars still feature that big hulk of a lump, the 3.8-litre twin-turbo VR38DETT that’s been honed and perfected over 15 years. Output remains the same as before, though you’d be hard pushed to call it ‘underpowered’. The ‘regular’ GT-Rs get an unchanged 562bhp, while the two Nismo cars get the same 592bhp as before. Same gearbox. Same 4WD setup. Same gut-busting acceleration and performance.

Now though, all cars feature better aerodynamics, says Nissan, along with a more “refined ride quality”, and we’re told the noise and vibration levels have been reduced to better occupant comfort. The GT-R Premium edition T-Spec cars come with “specially set suspension” and carbon brakes.

And the Nismo goes full Motorsport. There’s a mechanical limited slip diff on the front final drive, better aero and ‘suspension tuning’ to make it – in Nissan’s words – “the highest-performance GT-R ever”. Inside it gets black Recaro buckets, while the absolute peak of GT-R trim, the ‘Nismo Special edition’, gets all this along with proper weight-balanced engine parts (like piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft) and a clear-coated carbon bonnet with NACA ducts.

“Fronted with a new grille design, cutting-edge technologies and craftsmanship, the new models are the pinnacle of the GT-R R35,” says Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta. They’ll go on sale in Japan later this summer.
