Nissan Announces U.S. Pricing for 2021 GT-R



Nissan has announced U.S. pricing for the 2021 Nissan GT-R Premium and GT-R NISMO models, which are on sale now at select U.S. Nissan dealers with starting MSRPs1 of $113,540 and $210,740 respectively.

Enhancements for 2021 include expanded availability of the Bayside Blue exterior color, which was previously reserved for the limited production 2020 GT-R Anniversary Edition, for the GT-R Premium model.
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices1(MSRP) for the 2021 Nissan GT-R: 
 
GT-R Premium

$113,540 USD

 
 
GT-R NISMO
 

$210,740 USD

 
Destination and Handling $1,695.
 
The 2021 GT-R Premium model's legendary 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. The refined powerplant is backed by an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission, which can be driver selected to shift at race car-like speeds. All 2021 Nissan GT-Rs are built on an exclusive Premium Midship platform, which enables the use of the unique independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system.
Along with the 2021 GT-R Premium's dynamic exterior styling, the interior includes a front seat designed for enhanced comfort and holding performance, standard leather appointments and NissanConnect®, NissanConnect® Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), Nissan Navigation System and Apple CarPlay®.
 
 
The 2021 GT-R NISMO stands apart from the GT-R Premium model with carbon fiber components found throughout the car, including the front and rear bumpers, front fenders, hood, roof, side sill covers, trunk and rear spoiler.
The 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 torque2. Each is handcrafted by its own takumi technician. 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 (than pre-2020 models).
The car's suspension tuning refines cornering stability, with enhanced yaw rate response and smoother ride quality. The steering features greater linearity and precision than ever, requiring minimal corrections at track speeds of up to 186 mph. The absolute performance theme is also fittingly reflected by the carbon ceramic brake system. The combination of the Brembo carbon ceramic rotors — 16.1 inches up front and 15.3 at the rear — and Brembo calipers significantly improve reaction time, durability and overall stopping performance (versus pre-2020 models).
Inside the cabin, unique to GT-R NISMO are heated, reclining leather-appointed Recaro® seats with red synthetic suede inserts. These ergonomically sculpted seats are designed to focus on holding the shoulder blades and lower body points, giving the driver a better sense of car and body as one.
Also unique to the interior of the GT-R NISMO are an Alcantara®-appointed steering wheel, leather-wrapped shift knob with red accents, and the iconic NISMO red tachometer.

Quicker, faster, so arbitrary .... Blah, blah, blah yawn.... 78f5c770a3bff6836165f94c692c282f.jpg

You're in an echo chamber here. If you want to own a GTR because it's a GTR that's fine. But the Nismo GTR performance/dollar is poor, and it's interior is no better appointed than my ZL1. My point is that the Nismo GTR is very overpriced if performance is your top priority, and it is for me. I sold my '16 last year for that reason.

 

And I'm not a troll. I've been a member as long as you have, and I'm here selling my remaining GTR parts.

Such an arbitrary and blanket statement, “ZL1 is faster”. Faster than what? Don’t start bench racing quoting magazines or tracks with professional drivers and paid times lmao. You should know better. Ever have a 1000+ hp rwd car. I have. Ever have a 1000+ hp R35? I have. 99.9% of the time on a street or a track the ZL1 is not quicker or faster. I left the .1% for mechanical issues. In actuality, for a rwd platform I prefer the hellcat personally. No problem walking a ZL1 straight line, 60-130, 100-150, etc. and that’s before the simple mods to get 1000 worthless rwhp. P.s. doesn’t matter how long you’ve been a member - common sense should apply. I am active on hellcat forums, nsx prime, and gtr forums. I have recommended the NSX over an R35 many times. But it’s personal preference. No vacuum here champ, just the facts. Sell your parts and move on without yelling fire in a crowded movie theater.

It's simple: If you want the highest performance at the lowest cost, the Nismo GTR at $215,000 is not the car. My $85M ZL1 is faster on any track, drag (Bandimere) or road course (High Plains), than is the Nismo, at less than half the cost. It's really a very straightforward fact that even most GTR owners can understand. It might be painful for you to accept, but it's true nevertheless.

 

Ever owned a 6-second, 1750 hp car? I have, but my and your questions are irrelevant to my Nismo topic

 

And, I'll come and go from GTRLife as I please, thanks.

Lol you still don’t get it ....... good luck on selling your parts

And yes ...... I have ...

FYI - I can pick tights tracks for you where a car half the price of your zl1 will provide better cost/performance.

As you were.
@Ou : Ahhhh read some of your old posts and think I understand the animosity towards the platform. Not easy to have a daily driver blow turbos snd have warranty voided by the dealer on two different cars. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart to turbo swap or build an R35. Hopefully you don’t run into similar issues with your zl1. BTW what tracks are open in Denver in February ? Enjoy the weekend, stay healthy and best of luck.
At the end of the day a ZL1 is just another camaro...

I am all out of fresh popcorn, so as entertaining as this is lol... how ‘bout we get back ‘on track’ and back on topic. 

The NISMO isn't about pure HP nor are most Japanese cars. If that is lost on you, the discussion is probably over at that point because it's pointless to debate costs vs HP because it's not about that
Extremely hard to compare price points of a car with more hand laid carbon than the other has plastic. On that logic, the average Aston and even the recently released Mac hybrid Arturo is, well old news..

Yes, my experience with GIR was bad but I otherwise really enjoyed both GTRs. They were a lot of fun and I was always willing to run an errand if the wife requested. My criticism of current Nismo pricing is definitely not a negative reflection on all GTR. It was an honest attempt to briefly compare performance/dollar.

^ yeah those “honey want a coffee” runs are the best.

Do we know how many 2020 Nismo sold?

âouachita' It's simple: If you want the highest performance at the lowest cost, the Nismo GTR at $215,000 is not the car. My $85M ZL1 is faster on any track. If you Paid that much for your ZL1 ,you paid too much .There is always some one faster and also paying less then you so there is no real winners .The only person that wins is the person that gets the car of their dream .

Nissan are smart, they are getting us prepared for R36 pricing by making the current nismo this expensive. Sent from my SM-N986B using Tapatalk

expensive.

Went to my local dealer to check out a 2021 GTR....20k markup. White + red interior for 141K....that's a pass from me.

Wow ,I remember when I got my 2017 GTR premium with amber back in DEC 2016 for 96k that included suntek,paint production the entire car ,tint and delivered to my house.After paying taxes and registration it was 104k. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

20K markup insane...

The logic behind it is that we're in the Bay Area ( CA tech scene aka software devs with $ ) and they're happy to let it sit for the year because they think someone will pay it eventually. As far as I can find, it's the only white + red available. I think it makes more sense to ship the car from out of state ( assuming one becomes available ) than to pay this markup.

Sounds like Dealers are going back to the good ol days of 2008. Asking amounts way over MSRP, based on their definition of supply and demand lol

Remember when the DBA hit the market - LA dealers wanted $20K over MSRP then as well.  Was "lucky" to only pay sticker for mine back then.  Of course, that was the new upgrade - not sure it makes any sense with a '21 unless the dealer thinks it'll be the last year...

I don't think the dealer is being realistic; as much as I love this car, it doesn't have the demand of the new Corvette. How they can justify that markup is beyond me.

I dont care what cars it is..20 markup or any markup is just insane...jhmo

It is. Its also crazy that its performance isnt irrelevant. I actually appreciate the kind of retro, minimalist approach to the cars.
