New 2020 Nissan GT-R: pricing announced
The updated Nissan GT-R is available to order now, priced from £83,995 for the entry-level version and rising to £174,995 for the NISMO
Nissan’s revised 2020 GT-R is on sale now. Prices for the entry-level Pure model start from £83,995 and rise to £99,995 for the Track Edition model. First deliveries are due to arrive by November 2019.
As standard, buyers get a set of 20-inch RAYS alloy wheels, electrically adjustable Bilstein dampers and a downshift rev-matching function for the automatic transmission. Inside, the standard GT-R features black leather and Alcantara upholstery, electrically adjustable and heated front seats, a carbon fibre centre console and an eight-inch infotainment system.
The mid-range Nissan GT-R Recaro starts from £85,060 and adds a pair of Recaro sport seats and a retrimmed interior, finished in black and red leather. The GT-R Prestige is priced from £86,060 and adds Nissan’s “Touring” seats, offered in black, red, tan or grey leather. The performance of both models remains unchanged over the standard GT-R.
The range-topping GT-R Track Edition is priced from £95,060. It features a set of lightweight 20-inch NISMO alloy wheels, a carbon fibre rear wing and a set of uprated dampers, designed collaboratively between NISMO and Bilstein. The Track Edition’s body-in-white is also more strongly bonded together, leading to better handling on-track.
The 2020 Nissan GT-R is powered by a reworked version of the outgoing model’s boosted 3.8-litre V6 engine. Revisions include updated exhaust manifolds, a new titanium exhaust silencer and a fresh pair of turbochargers, which are said to improve the GT-R’s low-range response.
The revised engine’s power and torque figures stand at 562bhp and 637Nm respectively. Like in the outgoing model, the engine sends its power to all four wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch transmission – which Nissan has also improved, reducing shift times by 0.15 seconds. The GT-R’s top speed remains unchanged at 196mph.
Nissan has also updated the GT-R’s chassis, adding a new brake servo, an updated suspension system and a reworked steering setup. The Japanese brand claims these revisions have improved the car’s braking response, comfort and stability.
For those hungry for power, Nissan also offers a more potent, 592bhp version of its flagship sports car, called the GT-R NISMO. Priced from £174,995, it features a set of exclusive 20-inch RAYS alloy wheels, stickier Dunlop tyres, carbon ceramic disc brakes, Brembo brake calipers and a redesigned, aerodynamically functional body kit.
