Nissan Revealed its 2021 model year GT-R Nismo with few changes, and as you might expect, they aren’t all-new.
There are now only two GT-R models to choose from; the GT-R Premium and the GT-R Nismo. The GT-R Premium uses the same familiar 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission sending power to a rear transaxle ATTESA E-TSall-wheel-drive system, the car takes just 2.7 seconds to hit 60 mph.
Pricing starts at $113,540, which includes a new titanium exhaust, navigation system, and Apple CarPlay. Bayside Blue, a historic GT-R color that was previously only available on the 50th Anniversary Edition, is now available on the Premium model.
The 2021 GT-R Nismo’s pricing remains unchanged from the previous model year. The Godzilla rolls in from $210,740, with a 600 HP and 481 lb-ft (652 Nm) 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, which features an exclusive turbocharger design sourced from the GT3 racer, with modified shape and fewer blades compared to the pre-2020MY.
The refined suspension provides a smoother ride, according to Nissan, and increased cornering stability, while the braking system, with 16.1-inch front and 15.3-inch rear carbon ceramic rotors and Brembo calipers, improve the stopping performance over the iterations sold before the 2020 model year.
Inside, the sportiest version of the GT-R is equipped with supportive seats from Recaro, which have been wrapped in leather, with red synthetic suede appointments. Also unique for the 2021 GT-R Nismo are the Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped gear shift knob with red accents and the model-specific red tachometer.
