2024 Nissan GT-R facelift unveiled in Japan – Nismo Special Edition and T-spec



Nissan has unveiled the new facelift Nissan GT-R for 2024 and it’s set to go on sale in the summer of next year. The GT-R is now in its 17th year of production since its first debuted in 2007.

With the new facelift model, the front end looks less busy than before; with a revised front grille design, thinner mesh for the front grille, additional creases on the front bumper and new surrounds for the daytime running light surrounds. At the rear, the GT-R receives a new lower bumper trim, along with F1-styled brake lights at the centre of the rear bumper.

As for the mechanical bits, the facelift GT-R soldiers on with the same VR38DETT 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with 570 hp and 637 Nm, paired to a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox to drive all four wheels. The GT-R’s specifications include Bilstein DampTronic monotube shock absorbers, Brembo brakes (6-pot front, 4-pot rear), carbon composite driveshafts and 20-inch RAYS aluminium forged wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sports Maxx GT600 tyres.

The Nismo version utilises the same 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine but produces 600 hp and 652 Nm as a result of revised turbochargers taken from the GT3 race car. The 2024 GT-R Nismo also features a front limited-slip differential for the first time. Other specifications include Brembo carbon ceramic brakes as standard, carbon fibre roof, Nismo carbon fibre front and rear bumper panels, trunk lid, rear wing and front hood. The rear wing with swan neck struts also features 10% larger surface area for reduced drag.

Newly available for the GT-R Nismo is the Nismo Appearance Package which includes 20-inch RAYS forged wheels with red accents, a Nismo-exclusive Stealth Gray paint job, a unique clear coat applied to the carbon fiber hood and an exclusive engine cover design. 

The GT-R T-spec, on the other hand, features GT-R Nismo carbon-ceramic brakes, gold-painted version of Nismo’s 20-inch RAYS forged wheels, and wider front fenders. The T-spec is also decorated with special badging inside and out and finished with dark Mori Green upholstery.

The T-spec is available in two exclusive colors namely Millennium Jade – a tribute to one of the rarest GT-Rs ever, the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür – with the other being Midnight Purple, a modern interpretation of the Midnight Purple III color made famous by the R34 GT-R V-Spec.
