Still a Thrill Ride After 15 Years

Nissan recently launched the latest models of its GT-R sports car in Japan. These new versions, set to hit the market in June, mark the 15th year since the iconic car first rolled out. The 2025 GT-R series is a continuation of the R35 generation launched in 2007, showcasing Nissan’s commitment to delivering the most thrilling driving experiences.

The lineup boasts six different models, each offering unique features to cater to different tastes and preferences. From the sleek GT-R Pure and Black models to the luxurious Premium and Premium T-spec Editions, Nissan has left no stone unturned in enhancing performance and aesthetics. For those seeking a more adrenaline-fueled ride, the GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO and the NISMO T-spec promise an unparalleled driving experience.

To elevate the driving dynamics, Nissan’s engineers have fine-tuned components like piston rings, connecting rods, and crankshafts in the Premium T-spec and Track Editions. These updates result in quicker revs and turbo spooling from the powerful 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine.

In terms of design, the GT-R lineup now features aluminum takumi certification plates and gold-coloured model number plates in the engine bay, adding a touch of exclusivity. The Premium Edition offers a stunning new Blue Heaven interior colour option alongside the classic tan and red leather schemes.

For the ultimate performance enthusiasts, the NISMO variants come with specially tuned suspension and brakes from Nissan’s motorsports division. The stripped-down interior, accented with bold red elements, reinforces the car’s racing pedigree.

All 2025 GT-R models come equipped with a 4WD drivetrain, a potent VR38DETT engine producing 562 horsepower, and a responsive 6-speed dual-clutch GR6 transmission. With a starting price of 11.8 million yen ($79,000 USD), the GT-R continues to offer accessible performance without compromising on thrills.

Despite facing competition from newer models, the GT-R remains a standout choice for enthusiasts worldwide. Its distinctive Godzilla silhouette and enduring performance make it a head-turner even 15 years after its initial debut, solidifying its status as a true automotive icon.
