A facelifted 2024 Nissan GT-R is coming to Canada this spring.. A facelifted 2024 Nissan GT-R is coming to Canada this spring. If the new Nissan Z is the star of the Japanese manufacturer’s 2023 range, it will be the turn of its ultimate sports car to monopolize the spotlight for 2024.
Freshly unveiled in Japan and expected at certain Canadian dealerships starting in the spring, the GT-R is being modernized to once again stretch the generation we already know. Three versions will be on the menu, namely Privilège, T-spec and NISMO, the last of which should arrive more towards the summer. The prices will be known in the meantime.
All 2024 Nissan GT-Rs have been extensively revised to improve aerodynamics and downforce. It includes a redesigned front and rear, optimized side bumpers, a new grille with a thinner mesh as well as a redesigned rear spoiler.
On the GT-R NISMO, the new spoiler is enlarged by 10% and stands on gooseneck supports. Its curvature has been worked specifically to slice through the air and generate more downforce. The designers also redesigned the front spoiler and the rear diffuser.
T-spec Special Edition.
Introduced in 2021, the T-spec special edition is back with the 2024 Nissan GT-R. 20 inches from the NISMO, an improved electric vehicle control system and widened front fenders. It is also recognizable by its special badges, its Mori Green finish and its combination of semi-aniline leather and suede on the front seats.
Nissan even offers two exclusive paint colors that evoke the past. Jade Millennium pays homage to the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür, which is one of the rarest GT-Rs in history, while Midnight Purple is a modern interpretation of the Midnight Purple III made famous by the R34 GT-R V-Spec.
Speaking of colors, the GT-R NISMO gets a new optional and exclusive color, Stealth Grey.
And the engine?
Under the hood, the 2024 Nissan GT-R unsurprisingly retains its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6. Too bad, the power does not change: 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. Everything is distributed to all four wheels via the ATTESA ET-S all-wheel drive system and controlled by a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox once again. In the case of the GT-R NISMO, it’s 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. For the first time, a limited-slip front differential is included.
At the chassis level, the double wishbone suspension at the front and multi-link at the rear is adjustable according to three modes: Normal, Comfort and R. It is anchored to 20-inch wheels which are shod in Privilege version high-performance Dunlop tires and slowed by Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers up front and four-piston rear.
The T-spec, as mentioned earlier, gets larger carbon-ceramic brakes. In addition, its wheels are wrapped in ultra-high performance Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600 tires using a specific rubber.
Finally, Nissan does not show images of the cabin for the simple reason that there are hardly any changes. Note that the 8-inch multimedia screen is compatible with Apple CarPlay and includes integrated navigation.
