Nissan’s 50th Anniversary Edition Leads The 2020 GT-R Pack Down Under

Nissan has launched the 2020 GT-R lineup in Australia, which includes the new GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition that builds on the Premium Luxury grade.

Available from AUD $209,300 (USD $141,568), the special edition Godzilla comes in one of three shades: Bayside Blue and Super Silver with white stripes, and Ivory Pearl with red stripes, a throwback to the racing liveries of the GT-R from the 1971 Japan Grand Prix. Further highlighting its special stance are the ‘50th Anniversary’ badges applied on the boot lid and alloy wheels.

The interior design of the car pays homage to the past as well, with the ‘50th Anniversary’ badging applied to the seats, center console, tachometer and kick plates. There’s a new two-tone leather trim as well, called Cool Grey, an exclusive feature for the model, which can be found on the seats, dashboard panel, door panels, steering wheel and gear shifter. The offering is completed by the carbon fiber trim, infotainment system, dual-zone climate control and other equipment.

The rest of the 2020 GT-R range has been slightly updated, with redesigned front fog lamps, blue exhaust tips and new wheels. A series of mechanical upgrades have been applied as well, such as the updated turbochargers, tweaked electronically controlled suspension, improved steering angle and new brake booster. The output of the 3.8-liter V6 has remained unchanged, producing 419 kW (570 PS / 562 hp) and 632 Nm (466 lb-ft) of torque.

With a price of AUD $193,800 (USD $131,084), the 2020 GT R Premium is the most affordable member of the family, followed by the GT-R Premium Luxury, at AUD $199,800 (USD $135,142). The GT-R Track Edition comes in at AUD $235,000 (USD $158,951) and the top-of-the-line GT-R Track Edition with optional Nismo interior costs AUD $247,000 (USD $167,068).
