2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo

The Nissan GT-R has been a defining vehicle for the Japanese automotive manufacturer since it was first unveiled in 2007, and for over a decade, the original platform has been as a crowning achievement for the brand. Now, they’ve revealed the next step in the evolution of the GT-R’s performance lineup — the 2020 GT-R Nismo.

Like most manufacturers who are gunning for the top spot when it comes to high-performance vehicles, Nissan has found a way to cut back on the original platform’s curb weight. The result: a 67-pound drop from the body of the current generation GT-R, thanks, in large part, to forged aluminum wheels, carbon fiber body panels, bumpers, fenders, and a revised rear spoiler. A reevaluated body and front fascia help to divert air away from the car, allowing for a more aerodynamic silhouette. In the performance department, the 600-horsepower GT-R Nismo has upgraded to the same turbocharger turbine shape as the manufacturer’s GT-R GT3, allowing for more airflow and acceleration response, alongside a six-speed, dual-clutch transmission and an upgraded suspension to help even out the power being applied to the wheels. Right now, details on pricing haven’t been released, but the vehicle is slated to hit the market at the end of the year.
