About the 2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO
The 2020 GT-R NISMO is more GT-R than ever before – it's the ultimate performance super sports car that provides an exhilarating experience for virtually everyone. New race-proven turbochargers, improved gearbox shift control, lighter components, reduced overall mass and upgrades to the brakes, wheels and tires contribute to a 2.5-second reduction in lap time around Nissan's development track. There's also an improvement of the GT-R's inherent high-speed stability, even at speeds of up to 186 mph.

The 2020 GT-R NISMO's VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 remains the heart of the GT-R's drivetrain and is rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque3. Each is handcrafted by its own takumi technician. For 2020, the GT-R NISMO features an exclusive turbocharger design – direct from the GT-R GT3 race car – with a modified turbine shape and fewer blades. This optimizes the flow rate and enhances the acceleration response by 20%, without a loss of horsepower.
About the 2020 GT-R Track Edition
While in previous years the GT-R Track Edition featured the 565-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged engine from the GT-R Premium grade, for 2020 the engine is borrowed from the famed GT-R NISMO and offers a full 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque3.

In addition to the engine, key GT-R Track Edition performance enhancements (versus the GT-R Premium) include additional adhesive bonding of the body structure, a NISMO-tuned 4-wheel independent suspension, reduced weight and additional roll stiffness, wide 20-inch NISMO forged aluminum-alloy wheels with NISMO-spec tires and dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler4. Inside, the Track Edition interior includes a unique red and black color treatment with high-grip, motorsports-inspired Recaro® seats.
About the 2020 GT-R Premium and 
All 2020 GT-R Premium grade models include a revised turbocharger tuning, burnished exhaust tips, new RAYS 20-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheel design, new headlight inner color and available "Hai Gray" premium interior with hand-stitched semi-aniline appointments. The 2020 GT-R Premium models' performance is rooted in a hand-assembled twin-turbo VR38DETT 3.8-liter V6 engine rated at 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. A Titanium exhaust system is standard, along with Active Noise Cancellation and Active Sound Enhancement technologies.

About the GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition
The special GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is available in three heritage-era, two-tone exterior color combinations meant to represent the GT-R's liveries from the Japan GP series. Bayside (Wangan), a four-coat, double-heat treatment process ensures a vivid blue with striking highlights and deep shadows, is contrasted with white racing stripes. Blue accents on the wheel spokes are among several fine touches made to celebrate the GT-R's milestone. Pearl White with red stripes and Super Silver with white stripes round out the 50th Anniversary liveries.

Inside the GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is a special gray interior color scheme, which gives the cabin a sense of luxury, reminiscent of the atmosphere of the night sky after the twilight hour (the color is also available on select other 2020 GT-R models). Additional 50th anniversary features include unique steering wheel and shift knob trim, special embossed seats, an Alcantara® headliner with unique stitching, Alcantara®-wrapped sunvisors, and more.

Well this is why they never offered CC brakes because of the cost. I like the new rims though. Never really cared for the blocky ones.

Txgtr77494, I am at the 3.5 month mark for a couple of Nismo parts with not even a peep from Nissan on when they will be made. They have no freaking clue how to deal with a customer that is buying a car priced at Nismo levels. DO NOT get one. Car is great but if you need any factory support you are screwed. No other car at this price range would put a customer who has bought multiple of their flagship car in this position over a couple of parts that should be stocked at the factory (at least) if not at a distribution center in the US. At the new price level, get a GT3RS and don’t look back. I have driven it. Drives great, sounds amazing, and run a sub 7-min Ring time

I'm with you.  It's foregone now esp at over $200k.  Even someone like me gets priced out.  I have a '19 Track and I can't even get parts so.  haha.  I did get lucky tho cus when I got the car, the next day, the whole electrical system went out.  But, I got lucky and called corporate.  They put me over to the GTR team.  2 days later, car was fixed.  They over nighted everything I needed.  ECU stuff.  Rear Tail lights.  Wiring.  But, they don't have a LED fog lamp and touch up paint.  smh.  It's strange to me.  Look, I'm loving this car.  I got a great deal on it cus it was considered used with just 400 miles on it so.  I'm leaning towards my next car being the Charger Hellcat Redeye Widebody..............when it comes out.  Or, a Bentley or Aston Martin.  I know, completely different cars, but I buy them and enjoy them then trade them in on someone newer.  I did see a '18 Nismo, brand new, Black, online for $149k.  I was like..............hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.  Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.  To me, that's a fair price. 

Do it Do it Do it. Value will go up soon. You can always add the 2020 options when aftermarket start making the fender vents. Add zR1 carbons brakes and done.

I just hope someone will start producing the fender vents....

The brakes are a $15k option for the track Edition

What is so special about these brakes? Just curious. Stock rotors are garbage, but they can be replaced for $1200. The dust boots are also garbage, but a brake rebuild is not that bad to do.

 

Are they candy coated in diamond dust?

weight and heat tolerance meaning potential less fading and improved stopping distance. will have to see some actual tests to see how much better they are.  the  standard brakes have ok  initial performance but wont last long at all

 

 

 

The bulk of the 66-pound reduction in weight over the previous GT-R NISMO is down to a new brake package. Massive carbon-ceramic rotors—16.1 inches up front and 15.3 inches at the rear, clamped respectively by six- and four-piston Brembo calipers dipped in yellow paint that can withstand temperatures of 1,000 degrees C without discoloring—are now standard equipment on the GT-R NISMO. The new brake setup not only delivers a 36-pound reduction in total unsprung weight but also increased durability and fade-free performance under extreme braking conditions. With fewer pounds to manage, the Bilstein DampTronic shocks now have a 5 percent softer compression rate and 20 percent softer rebound rate.

I just hope someone will start producing the fender vents....


A guy in Germany was (and still is) already making them before Nismo spy photos with them ever came out. Not sure if he’s active on this forum, but he’s on heritage and battalion.

Other than them being a factory carbon-ceramic option, nothing else.

That's comical they want to charge that much. All of the guys who track know that all it takes is better rotors, upgraded dust boots, better pads and SRF fluid to be a huge upgrade for not much money. 

210 for a nismo....wow

 

210 LMAO Ferrari/Lamborghini/McLaren/Porsche all day before I spend 210 on a GTR I could see if this was a change in look/engine/ect. added Carbon Ceramics and a carbon fiber part on the outside and calling it new... Although I will love to see people buy it not sure this was the best move for Nissan but who am I.

just curious what dust boots do you use/recommend? I had to replace mine twice already.

Yep, that’s him!

Well, darn, I guess another GT-R just isn't in my future. I remember what a relative bargain the '09 was when I bought mine new for $70K in 2009. Now in 10 years the "premium" trim level has gone up $40K. I can't even afford a used '17 because I'm not paying over $80K. The unicorn R36? Forget it. Nissan won't sell even a "Pure" trim level for less than $115K, so I would have to wait until the R36 had been out for years. Man, by then I would realistically be too old to drive such a high performance vehicle (loss of reflexes, reaction time, etc.).

People may disagree but Nissan completely priced themselves of the GTR demographic. This is all obviously my opinion. I believe that the demo for the car is 25-40 (maybe 45) year olds. Yes there will be outliers. That age that can afford the current price is slowly dwindling. In general as we get older we become more successful and this can afford a higher priced toy. As a successful 45 year old having owned 2 GTRs in the past at the current price it’s not even an afterthought when thinking about my next toy..... Crazy as it sounds I would buy the new vette well before the Nissan Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
The 2020 configurator is now live - if you can call it that. There is not a lot that can be configured. Besides the outside color, the 50th Anniversary, Track and NISMO models are standard issue. Don’t bother looking for Blaze Metallic or Deep Blue Pearl, those colors have been discontinued.

the new car forum trend is for someone to tell you how many C8s you can get for that.  that is the new currency. that  NISMO doesnt cost  216K it costs like  3.3 C8s

Lol

I think we should continue that trend... I like that lol

In B4 someone orders one with bitcoin, sight unseen.

I've owned two GT-R's in the past and even though I put a deposit down on a C8, I wouldn't say something like that. It's just that right now I want a C8. After that, who knows, maybe the R36 if it ever rolls out?

I mean Its me making fun of how how much of that is going around right now with all the buzz with the brand loyalists... but it actually isn't a bad bar for comparison as 65-70k equipped or whatever it is for a fresh mid engine is a bargain benchmark. The NISMO at over 3 times the price and being the 12 year old platform with extra carbon really is absurd put in that perspective.

This is off topic but just have to throw in that 2.5 or how many C8s for a direct comparison NSX is gonna put that poor car out of business

Maybe a more relevant currency and equally hard to wrap your head around is 2 medium milage 2015 NISMOs

 

 

Im just truly interested to see how many they will sell of this. To me  this as to be one of the smallest target demographics ever. You have to have over 200K of  disposable income but yet also be a such a hardcore NISMO fanboy ( Like me) to forego everything in that price range that gets you in to the status symbol exotic door  or even things that cost way less and put our similar raw performance numbers.

Being someone who bought a Nismo new from the dealer and thinks the pricing on the new one is crazy, I think they sell 10-15 max in the US for the 2020 model and another 10 or so with heavy discounting involved. At $212k, there are too many other ways to go and if the C8 hits the car mag circuit, puts down some really good numbers some will wait for the inevitable C8 Z06.
