Remember 2009? If not, here's a quick recap: GM went bankrupt, Obama was inaugurated, and Nissan introduced to the public the GT-R. Since then, the General has marched back from death and Obama served two terms, but Nissan's flagship performance car on first blush looks largely unchanged from the debut model. Incremental change seems to be the mantra of the GT-R.
Incremental doesn't equate to inadequate, however, and the refined 2020 Nissan GT-R is proof of this. The base model has now been dropped, leaving the Premium as the new starting point for the GT-R lineup. A new 50th Anniversary Edition package celebrates 50 years of GT-R with exclusive color schemes and trim. The Track Edition now sports the 600-horsepower Nismo engine and gets a new carbon-fiber roof.
The flagship Nismo model also gets its share of updates. There's new carbon-fiber body panels, a new carbon-ceramic braking system, and new turbochargers plucked right from the GT3 race car. The new sticker price? A whopping $35 grand more than last year's model.
