THE GT-R HAS broken THE RULES for DECADES. AND GUESS WHAT? IT’S ALL GONNA HAPPEN AGAIN.
It isn’t found in a lap time. Or a 0–100 number. Or even on a price tag. It’s built on an obsession to detail. And a radical belief that a real supercar delivers performance in real-world conditions. Anywhere. Anytime. So refined, anyone can drive it. Yet so capable, in the right hands it can turn the automotive world on its ear. The Nissan GT-R. Its history speaks of world-beating performance, but the pursuit will always be of pure exhilaration.

ANYONE, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE.
Many believe that a supercar should only be driven on a perfect day, on a perfect stretch of road, and only by an expert driver. We have a different vision. That every day should be a supercar day. That you should be able to enjoy exhilaration with comfort and confidence, regardless of your skill level, on any road, regardless of conditions. A radical idea? Perhaps. But we like going our own way.
570 PS 3.8-LITRE, TWIN-TURBO V6
At the heart of the GT-R is an ideally sized, twin-turbocharged 3.8-L V6 that produces a prodigious 570 ps and equally immense 637 nm of torque. Hand-assembled by one of only five master craftsmen in the world allowed to create such a masterpiece. But it’s more than just exceptional skill that goes into the process that makes the GT-R so special. As one of the craftsmen says, “We put our souls into each engine, hoping to deliver that excitement to customers.”
HAND-CRAFTED TITANIUM EXHAUST
Another example of the precision crafting of the GT-R. To ensure the proper cooling from the engine’s massive output, a titanium exhaust is now offered. Notoriously difficult to work with, each exhaust is hand-built by a master craftsman, and is specifically designed for an individual vehicle. Combined with an exotic sounding exhaust note, it’s music to any enthusiast’s ears.
THE AIR CAN’T BELIEVE ITS EYES
Relentless tuning of the GT-R’s aerodynamics provides an incredibly clean Coefficient of Drag of 0.26 Cd. While you see a substantial, powerful supercar, to the wind, it punches through the air like a low-slung, mid-engine supercar. Pure aerodynamic alchemy.
Shaped to Perfection
While you may find the GT-R’s look more aggressive, the styling is pure function. Larger grille openings enhance cooling to key components, without increasing aerodynamic drag. Even the smallest detail was evaluated. Such as the C-pillar, which was slightly redesigned to stop the formation of a vortex that could slow the GT-R down. A 1% change in efficiency may not seem like much to some, but to the fanatical GT-R engineers, worthy of the effort.
ARTISAN MEETS ENGINEER
The GT-R sees massive changes in its interior, to enhance both comfort and capability. Revised ergonomics puts control at your fingertips, for an easier drive, while new hand-selected and hand-crafted materials create an environment that will get your pulse racing – even before you start the engine.
GO PREMIUM, BUT NEVER GO SOFT
The GT-R elevates the driving experience with features like a dash cover created from a single, leather hide – hand-selected for a flawless leather appearance. Available semi-aniline leather appointments creating a soothing ambience. Even the interior acoustics have been retuned, to reduce unwanted noise, while allowing the pure intoxicating sound of the GT-R’s engine to thrill like never before.
TRAVELLING AT THE SPEED OF GT-R
Once again, GT-R rethinks the way the driver receives information. Multiple, easily accessed screens are an innovative way the driver can get immediate feedback to key performance parameters. The result is engaging and informative – providing quick readability combined with the flexibility of multiple customisable displays.
Putting control at your fingertips, the all-new Display Commander lets you toggle up and down, side-to-side, rotate, scroll through and control your infotainment system, all without the need to look down or touch the display screen.
FROM THE CLEAN ROOM TO THE TEST TRACK
MASTERY EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
MASTER CRAFTSMEN BREATHE LIFE INTO THE GT-R, CREATING A UNIQUELY HUMAN VISION OF A SUPERCAR.
One man, one engine
Only five master craftsmen in the world are allowed to hand-assemble the GT-R’s engine and affix a plaque carrying their name.
AS Class drivers – the top development drivers at Nissan – help create a vehicle that would excel at any racetrack, in any kind of weather, in the hands of any level of driver.
Drivers are assigned to a unique aspect of Nissan GT-R’s development, including an Autobahn expert, a “Marketability” expert, and “Ringmeisters” who pit the GT-R against the legendary Nürburgring.
