2024 Nissan GT-R

The legendary R35 Nissan GT-R’s time has come for it to disappear. Nissan has confirmed that the supercar, which has been around since 2009 in its current form, will be discontinued after the 2024 model year. After 17 long years, production of the coupe will come to an end in October 2024.

To mark the end of the line for the R35 GT-R, Nissan plans to come out with two special editions called the Skyline and T-spec Takumi editions. These are expected to arrive at dealerships this summer and while Nissan isn’t providing a specific number for how many special editions it will make, it claims that fewer than 200 units will be available in North America.

Power for these special edition models will come from a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine that makes 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard. The powertrain helps the modern-day Godzilla earn its name with a zero-to-60 mph time of just 2.9 seconds.

While the Skyline and T-spec Takumi editions share the same engine, there are a few differences between the two to help them stand apart from one another. The T-spec Takumi edition is named after the term takumi, which describes master craftsmen in Japan. This special edition model features a gold VIN plate, an engine badge with red-etched writing, a cabin that’s finished in Mori Green, and a unique Midnight Purple paint job. On the performance front, the T-spec Takumi Edition also comes with RAYS gold 20-inch wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes, wider front fenders, and NISMO-tuned vehicle dynamic control.

Nissan has utilized the Skyline moniker to signify its iconic sports cars for decades, but didn’t offer a car with the Skyline name in the U.S. The Nissan GT-R Skyline Edition changes that, bringing a unique Bayside Blue paint job and has a Sora Blue interior scheme. The Skyline Edition is based on the GT-R Premium.

Pricing for the 2024 Nissan GT-R Skyline edition will start $132,985 and the T-spec Takumi edition is priced at $152,985. We’re sure Nissan dealerships will place hefty markups on the special editions, driving prices up. The regular 2024 GT-R lineup will also be available. The base GT-R Premium costs $122,985 and the range-topping GT-R NISMO starts at $222,985.
