The revised Nissan GT-R lineup is almost ready to launch in the United States. The Japanese automaker will offer the lauded performance model in four different trim levels, including the GT-R Premium, 50th Anniversary Edition, Track Edition and NISMO.
Set to go on sale on July 25, the base variant will have an MSRP of $113,540, while the 50th Anniversary Edition, which builds on the same grade adding extra gear, will have an $8,500 premium.
Both versions of the car include revised turbochargers with the base model obtaining new 20-inch wheels, titanium exhaust, Active Noise Cancellation, Active Sound Enhancement and others. It can also be specified with a new ‘Hai Gray’ premium interior with hand-stitched, semi-aniline trim.
The GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition marks the return of the Bayside Blue color, contrasted by white racing stripes. It’s also available with Pearl White and red stripes or Super Silver with white stripes. The interior gets a gray color scheme, unique steering wheel and shift knob trim, Alcantara headliner and sun visors and embossed seats.
You’ll have to wait until August 25 for the 2020 GT-R Track Edition that is priced from $145,540. It features 20-inch Nismo wheels, a carbon fiber rear spoiler and available carbon ceramic brakes. The cabin brings unique red and black elements and Recaro seats. But more importantly, the Track Edition is powered by the same engine as the Nismo. The 3.8-liter V6 makes 600 hp and 481 lb-ft (652 Nm) of torque, whereas the unit found in the Premium and 50th Anniversary Edition is rated at 565 hp and 467 lb-ft (633 Nm) of torque.
Finally, the top dog of the range, the 2020 GT-R Nismo, will launch on July 12 with a starting price of $210,740. The reduced overall mass, upgraded brakes, wheels and tires and improved gearbox shift control, are some of the features that set it apart, helping it achieve a 2.5-second reduction in lap time around Nissan’s development track. Each Nismo is handcrafted by a ‘takumi’ technician.
