Blue accents are also present on the wheels, which feature 50th Anniversary lettering to bring the point home. Inside the car, the twin-turbo V6 coupe features a gray color scheme “reminiscent of the atmosphere of the night sky after the twilight hour.” The unique steering wheel and shift knob trim, embossed seats, Alcantara headliner, and Alcantara sunvisors sets this GT-R apart from the bone-stock trim levels.
“The Nissan GT-R has been the icon of our company’s driving performance for the past half century,” explains Shinichiro Irie, program design director. “While the exterior and interior changes may seem subtle at first glance, they’re still impactful, especially with the new paint schemes, keeping the car’s lines and overall presence modern and edgy.”
A titanium muffler with titanium finishers and burnished blue tips add to the specialness of the vehicle, but in other areas, the GT-R shows its age. One such area is the transmission, a dual-clutch with six speeds in the day and age of 10-speed automatic transmissions in vehicles such as the Ford F-150 pickup truck and Ford Mustang pony car.
For the 2020 model year, the GT-R features NissanConnect multimedia and up to 600 horsepower from the VR38DETT in the NISMO and Track Edition.
