2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo Gets Steep £175k Price Tag In The UK

Nissan has opened the order books for of the updated 2020 GT-R Nismo in the UK and, as expected, announced the pricing details too.

The most hardcore version of the GT-R family now starts from £174,995. That’s a significant increase of more than £25,000 over the previous Nismo, and places the new one against some pretty serious competition.

For 2020, the GT-R Nismo comes with a set of turbochargers straight from the GT3 racer for a sharper response, new bumpers and roof made out of carbon fiber, a revised titanium exhaust, lighter forged wheels, carbon brakes and bespoke tires.

Nissan claims that the changes led to the lap time at its own development track being dropped by 2.5 seconds, which sounds even more impressive when you find out that the engine output has remained the same with the outgoing model, at 592hp (600PS).

However, while power is the same, the six-speed dual-clutch transmission features a new algorithm that enables it to change cogs more aggressively and quickly.

The new elements on the bodywork also help improve the cooling of the engine and brakes without increasing drag. The Bilstein DampTronic shocks are also retuned in both rebound (20% softer) and compression (5% softer) to match the overall reduction in weight which, according to Nissan, is 30 kg (66 lbs).

If you feel it is out of your league, or simply too expensive for what it offers, you can always opt for the 2020 Track Edition, which is priced from a much more reasonable £99,995 and slots in between the standard GT-R and the range-topping Nismo.

    And with a dash straight out of the 1990’s! Such a bargain!

    • Bash

      Yeah, thats exactly how i feel every time i see this car, I mean it worth every penny, but that dash design.

    We all appreciate how capable this car is, but its more than twice its original price tag of 2007. Does this car (and trim) warrants such a high price when compared to competitors? What about brand value?

      indeed

  • Bo Hanan

    This car has evolved into a caricature of itself. And it’s probably a great drive.

    Well put!

    I like how the only way you can justify the GT-R is to put down Porsche. Why not give Porsche the respect it deserves (like the GT-R) instead of saying dumb things like ‘it was once a VW Beetle’ as if that’s somehow a negative thing or even relevant to the 2020 992 911 (or any 911 for that matter).

    It’s not Porsche fanboys saying that this Nismo is expensive, it’s literally everyone (even current GT-R owners). Nissan can charge whatever people are willing to pay, that’s fine. But it is still a lot of money.
