Shocked to see so much negativity towards this car. $215K is actually quite reasonable for a hand built car like this. Those carbon fiber body panels aren't cheap. The ceramics aren't cheap. Carbon roof isn't cheap. Sending the chassis off the production line to be bonded/spot welded isn't cheap. No individual could re-create a NISMO for less using a standard GTR. Especially not at this quality level.

And all this BS about 600hp being an abomination, that's nonsense. GT3s at 500HP are amazing cars, I don't hear anyone dogging them. I just paid $423K for Huracan STO, it "only" has 640HP. That's the only other car I know sub 600-800K with practically a full carbon body.

When I get mine I'm going to put NISMO Omori's down pipe/cat combo, keep it all OEM. Do a mild tune for 91 octane. I'm sure it'll make 660 to 680HP no problem, and be fun as *hell…
Hey! Long time no talk, hope all is well.

I believe that we're comparing the engine and car platforms here. The GT3 is a NA with 500 HP, nice. ok. driven one, and for the street, I wouldn't get rid of my TTS to get it. The GT3 doesn't do it for me on HP, but is a scalpel on the track.

Bang for the dollar, there''s no reason why Nissan could not have escalated the Nismo as it did for the regular GTR.
Todays world, the Nismo should have MINUMUM of 720 hp/750 lb torque/7 better yet 8 spd DCT. They could have done that and still kept the price point relatively similar as they're still using the body/chassis/from back in 2009.

My two cents. Congrats on your STO. Would love to drive the Canyons with you one day.

Closing the deal on my Nismo SE. I’ll post pics when received. Fingers crossed.

By any chance would anyone know how many Special Editions are being produced?
Awesome to hear. I picked mine up (Nismo Special Edition) 2 weeks ago and asked same question to the GSM. No exact # was given but he said it will be small # produced. If I hear I will relay to the forum…. Look fwd to seeing your pics!

last summer on the Japanese Nissan site a message was added that the sell of the NISMO Special edition had ended. Bestcar japan reported that the factory had received more orders than their production cap which was 300 cars world wide. GT-R NISMO 2022年モデル価格発表と同時に完売! 現行GT-Rついに生産終了か - 自動車情報誌「ベストカー」 Nissan halted production of all GTRs a few months ago so I have no clue if they reached their production goal before that happened or not.



in regards to the US # of cars only info on that I got was last fall when I was trying to get a list of members for T specs I was talking with my Nissan PR contact and also asked him about NISMOs he stated the US would probably get up to 20 NISMO special editions total.

Thank you. Very helpful info. the US total # was also told to me by the GSM but he wasn’t totally sure if that was to be the final tally…. all in all it will be a very unique and limited specimen for sure….

Talked to my dealer today who confirmed 20 Special Edition GTRs were available for the US. I confirmed my serial number is 008.

Pics of the car at the dealership before being transported for shipping.

Can’t wait to get PPF so that I can drive it.

The engine is tangibly more responsive. The internal changes are noticeable. Never thought I’d say this about a GTR, but the car is damn refined.

So you pick up another Nismo.
