Nissan Introduces New 2022 GT-R Nismo

The 2022 Nissan GT-R Nismo returns with new visual additions and all the power


  • It features a new carbon fibre hood.

  • The 20-inch Rays wheels include a red accent.

  • A new Stealth Grey colour becomes available for GT-R and Nismo.


The Nissan GT-R may be one of the “oldest” new cars available for sale today, but it remains a current ultra-high-performance icon. Nissan continues to keep it fresh and has just revealed its latest iteration of the legendary Nismo version.

The Nismo is simply the most powerful and capable iteration of the GT-R. The new 2022 Nismo GT-R will feature a clear-coated exposed carbon-fibre hood (100 grams lighter than the previous) and a new red accent stripe on the superb 20-inch Rays aluminium forged wheels.

As always, the Nissan GT-R Nismo is power by a VR38DETT 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 good for 600 horsepower. The built-to-order Nismo features the largest-ever carbon-ceramic brakes ever fitted to a Japanese car and Brembo calipers.

“The GT-R NISMO has always been an ongoing pursuit of ultimate driving pleasure,” said Hiroshi Tamura, chief product specialist of the GT-R. “We take a holistic approach, seeking precision performance through a meticulous balance of engine components and shaving weight, and incrementally evolving the GT-R’s appearance to deliver the ultimate balance of power, performance, and excitement to our customers.”

To celebrate the new 2022 Nissan GT-R Nismo, Nissan has teamed up with McDonald’s and Tomica. A miniature toy car Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available as part of the “Tomica Happy Set”.
