Remember the Nissan GTR?
The car that came from Japan and was the 911's biggest headache for quite some time. You're not wrong if you've forgotten about it because it is very old now. While the sports car world has moved on, the GTR hasn't. Now though, a new report claims that the GT-R R35 will get the perfect send-off in the form of a final edition.
After 13 years in the market — yes, it’s been that long — Nissan is finally prepared to bid adieu to the R35-generation of the Nissan GT-R.
The iconic supercar’s swan song isn’t expected to happen until 2023 at the earliest, but this early, the automaker is already preparing what Japanese magazine Best Car Web describes as a Final Edition model that will pack no less than 710 horsepower. This apocalyptic version of Godzilla will be limited to just around 20 units, ensuring not only its exclusivity but also the distinction of being the most powerful production-spec GT-R to be built.
The GT-R R35’s Final Edition is said to use the same engine as the GT-R50 by Italdesign and it generates a peak torque of 750 Nm. It is powered by a 3.8-litre twin turbocharged V6 engine with several performance upgrades.
The GT-R50 by Italdesign is tuned by Nismo and it uses turbos from GT3 version of the GT-R used on race tracks. It also boasts larger intercoolers. It aids in increased flow in fuel injectors while the six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and other components have also been upgraded to meet the desired specifications.
The report went on to say that the GT-R R35 Final Edition will cost around 40 million yen (Rs. 2.76 crore) – costlier than the GT-R Nismo but far lesser than the GT-R50 that costs more than a million. Bear in mind, these are just speculations currently but bringing up a Final Edition only makes sense for a car of GT-R iconic status. As for the next-gen R36 model, reports indicate that the chassis will be adaptable to multiple powertrains, as an all-electric version or a hybrid variant is highly possible using kinetic energy recovery system borrowed from GT-R LM Nismo race car.
