For the 2024 model year, the Nissan GT-R has received a much-needed redesign. The 2024 GT-R, which was unveiled for the first time on Thursday at the Tokyo Auto Salon, receives new fascias up front and back, improved aerodynamics, a few mechanical upgrades, and the reintroduction of the T-spec trim.
Nissan has updated the 2024 GT-front R’s bumper with new higher and lower grilles in its 16th year of production. The bottom grille has a rectangular air intake and two tidy clusters of hexagon-shaped daytime running lights, while the top grille has been thinned and given fang-like end pieces. Trim the area surrounding the quad exhaust outlets to modernize the GT-R.
Nissan GT-R Gets New Tweaks
The Nissan GT-R’s revised bodywork, according to Nissan, enhances downforce while preserving the same drag coefficient of 0.26 Cd as the previous model. According to Nissan, engineers even measured the thickness of the mesh in the front grille and thinned it suitably to improve cooling and reduce superfluous drag.
The hand-built 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 that the 2024 Nissan GT-R has been powered by since the model year 2020 produces the same 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and Nissan’s ATTESA ET-S all-wheel-drive system, which can change the torque distribution from front to back depending on the driving circumstances, deliver power to all four wheels. Additionally, there are Brembo brakes, Bilstein DampTronic adjustable shocks, and RAYS 20-inch wheels.
For 2024, the track-ready GT-R Nismo makes a comeback with its own redesigned bodywork that incorporates canards, a splitter, a new diffuser, a 10-percent bigger carbon wing with swan-neck type uprights, and more. A limited-slip differential for the front axle is also included for the first time, along with bigger tires, carbon-ceramic rotors, a carbon roof, turbochargers from Nissan’s GT3 racing car, and other modifications. The output remains at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque.
