2022 Nissan GT-R NISMO Special Edition gives an aging supercar new life
The Nissan GT-R might not be the fastest, sleekest, most modern, or sexiest car on the market today but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't love it. No matter how much you love the car, there's no amount of love that will make the GT-R a spring chicken. To make the the car more appealing to the masses, a new special edition model will be offered later this year in limited quantities.
The GT-R NISMO Special Edition wears a NISMO-exclusive Stealth Gray exterior paint job. It rides on exclusive 20-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels that are highlighted by red accents. At its front is a unique clear-coated carbon fiber hood that shows off the intricate carbon fiber weave.
On this Special Edition, for the first time, the GT-R wears Nissan's new logo. It adorns the trunk lid and wheel center caps.
A limited number of the new model will be available to North America customers this autumn.
The car keeps the GT-R NISMO's twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque. It utilizes high-precision, weight-balanced parts for the piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft, and valve gear components dialed in with tighter tolerances, delivering snappier engine revs and quicker turbo spooling.
Each engine is hand-assembled from the beginning to end in a special clean room by master technicians known as takumi. Each of these technicians places a special aluminum certification plate in a Special Edition-exclusive color on the front of each engine.
Pricing for the GT-R NISMO Special Edition will be announced at a later date. The traditional GT-R starts around $210,000 so expect this one to be priced higher than that.
