The updated MY20 Nissan GT-R is now available to order with first customer deliveries commencing in November. Priced from £83,995, the legendary sports car – celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019 – features a number of enhancements that optimise performance, improve handling and dial up the R35’s iconic styling.
The GT-R’s 570PS 3.8-litre V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged engine receives new turbochargers, which increase the engine’s low rpm response thanks to an abradable seal, providing tighter clearances and a 5% increase in efficiency. Gear shifts are also 0.15 seconds improved when in R-Mode.
The electronically controlled suspension has been tuned to provide better cornering stability and a smoother ride. The steering is more linear and precise than ever, requiring minimal corrections at speeds of up to 186mph.
A new brake booster increases the initial braking response by engaging with less pedal stroke, resulting in enhanced stopping power and feel.
The exhaust manifolds, inspired by racing technology, have optimised turbo flange attachment points which allow for easier servicing without touching the exhaust manifold. There is also a new titanium exhaust muffler, featuring titanium finishers with burnished blue tips.
Retired since the R34 GT-R, Bayside Blue makes a return to the R35 GT-R line-up. Available to order from November, a four-coat double-heat treatment process ensures a vivid blue with striking highlights and deep shadows.
Stylish new 20 Spoke 20” alloy wheels have also been introduced.
In addition to the existing black, tan and red interior options on Prestige grade, there is now a new grey leather interior, replacing the outgoing ivory option.

SVA View: The first Nissan GT-R (Evolved hugely popular Skyline muscle car) were well received to the point that there is a club/forum dedicated to enthusiasts http://www.gtroc.org/ which is always a sure fire pointer that there will be some longevity to these models, the ‘Nismo’ range also providing something approaching ‘Super’ car driving. This latest edition doesnt rock the world with its styling but its clearly a GT-R which should be enough, and if it works dont mess with it! It will be a brave soul paying the top end £175k for one unless the point is to keep it, enjoy its drive and rabidly throw it around tracks.. Martyn
