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.

$210k for a Nismo!!! They cant even sell them at $170k. I think most people in that price range would rather move onto a gt3 or used Huracan/mclaren.

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.

 

Honestly I would be surprised if they sold any....

Cars don't sell based solely on how well they perform.  It took years for Ferrari and Lamborghini to make a car that could beat a GT-R but I doubt it hurt their bottom line.  Sometimes raising the price into a new market segment will find new buyers. 

 

It makes a beautiful background on some brochures and the price of the Nismo that "completely redefines supercar performance" makes the premium look like one hell of a deal.

^ I get what you are saying, but This platform is a decade old and markups over the years have taken the deal that this once was and killed it. This car is too expensive to be an impulse buy and I assume anybody that is willing to spend this kind of money at least did a little research and realize that their money can go a lot further elsewhere, no matter how pretty that brochure is.

I love the GTR platform but this pricing is honestly turning into a joke.

Wow! Been out of the GT-R scene for a couple years and can’t believe where they are taking their pricing now! Loved my ‘10 and ‘14, but dang! Will stick to my supercharged V10 R8 until Nissan comes out with the R36 with some sensible pricing.

At 210k for a Nismo, Nissan will be running into the same problem ACURA is currently dealing with the NSX.  They'll have to run a 30k discount to just to move them off their lots and even then who knows..

$180, $210, $170....while a big monetary difference mentally it's a boatload of money for an old platform....they may sell a few, maybe.....question is what dealers are going to spend floorplan money to put one of these on the floor....

Would still buy 

Anniversary editions were a let down

I have been saying it all along. This car is comically, chronically, and severely over-priced! It's a complete joke! Nissan's pricing department must be really high on good hard drugs! That is the only logical explanation. At current pricing levels and with no rebates, Nissan will not sell more than 400 new 2020 GTRs between now and the end of 2020. There are just too many cheaper equivalent and better options out there for the GTR to remain relevant - BMW M5 Competition, M-Benz E63 AMG-S, Ford Mustang GT500, Camaro ZL1 1LE, C8 Corvette, Audi R8, Porsche 911 Turbo, etc. I can go on. Just too many better options out there.        

The 2020 Nismos are arriving and at least one local dealer has lofty expectations:

Yes, a lot of cars have caught up to the R35 GT-R, and in some cases surpassed it in performance. That is why I personally feel Nissan won't come out with an R36, because the bar is set too high for them to get over it. They would essentially have to match hypercar performance but priced in the low $100K range. As it is now, a new R35 GT-R is almost beyond the price range of the average Joe Schmoe. When It was $70K 10 years and I bought my 2009, that was a big deal for me financially.

this is the same reason why I bet they wouldnt enter the 2020 NISMO in the  car and driver lightning lap this year.    I saw the results last week and even if it was  3ish secs faster than the 2015 it would have been mid pack

I think you guys are right on point.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen! The 2015 NISMO GT-R is #27 all time, and there are two Camaro ZL1's, Corvette Z06, and a Corvette Grand Sport ahead of it.

If money wasn't a factor, it looks amazing, but even in that perspective, the ZL1 1LE and new C8 Corvette are putting down undeniable numbers. Once you open the envelope for price, Nissan is screwed.

I really hope the 2020 is the send off and they just kill the car until 2027+ when the company is stable enough for the R36.
Ooff

Sorry but I have to disagree with certain of your points. Yes I agree that the car is high priced. It is well engineered and good quality, however it is lacking many costly electronic features that other high priced cars have such as heads up display, memory seats, and various engine and mechanical monitoring functions. I had an Audi R8 that was so complicated it practically required me to have a PHD to figure it out.  The BMW M5 is a great car but very expensive. BMW's are among the fastest depreciating cars out there. My AMG C63s was $90k. The Corvette C8 is cheap, somewhere around $60k and a piece of junk in my opinion.  So, when you state there are better options out there, I have to agree, however those better options can be almost double the price of the GTR Premium. Just my .02

The Corvette C8 is cheap, somewhere around $60k and a piece of junk in my opinion.  Just my .02


Typically, declaring something a piece of junk is not an opinion, but followed by data. What experience with the new C8 gives you that idea? And to be clear, I have no personal experience with the C8 to say it is not. Just curious.

I recently traded a 2019 Corvette Z06 for an Audi R8 V10 Plus.  The Z06 was very poor quality.  In order to build a mid-engine automobile, the Corvette C8, for $60k base price the mfg. will, by necessity, cut costs.  

Texas Ed I already like you lol

That C8 is gonna be the laughing stock of the decade, in context with the hype of course.
The Zr1 version will prob. be decent just like with the C6 (best one so far) and C7 (useless)

One thing I have never seen is a Corvette with half a decent (factory) paintjob.
Now it's controversial to call this out since Nissan doesn't offer really good paint jobs either.
The bayside blue must be done in some special procedure it looks much better and denser (more depth) than all the other colors.
I am amazed how high of a quality the 50th Anniversay is for 120k. P4P prob. the best car you can buy in general atm.

I agree that the GTR is high priced but so are a lot of other cars. Pickup trucks, which used to be super cheap years ago, are now expensive costing $70k and upward. I am pleased that the GTR's are expensive because it creates a situation for low production numbers and a relatively scarcity of the cars. How often does one actually see another GTR on the road? Not often and for this reason the cars are well known for retaining their value which is a good thing. I don't want a car that is commonly seen on the roads. I see numerous Corvettes and Mustangs on a daily basis. These cars are not expensive, depreciate rapidly, and are ho hum when you see one driving by.  Conversely when driving my GTR I have numerous folks staring at my car, giving a thumbs up, and taking photo's.  This is the type of situation that gives me pride of ownership in that I am driving a relatively rare and special car. I'm for keeping the prices high and the numbers down.
