Overview

With up to 600-hp under its hood, the 2022 Nissan GT-R is a powerful and tenacious-handling sports car that earns its nickname of Godzilla. Unfortunately, its formula hasn’t changed much since it was introduced in 2009 but the sports cars it competes with have. Inside is where the GT-R’s age becomes more apparent, with an outdated design and down-market materials that are shared with lesser Nissan models. The GT-R does have several things going for it though. For one thing, all-wheel drive is standard on every model which helps with handling and gives the car a planted, confident feel. Plus, it’s more rare than a Porsche 911, so you’ll stand out in traffic or at your next track day.

What’s New for 2022?

Nissan is releasing a Special Edition model of the GT-R based on the 600-hp NISMO trim for 2022. The car will be sold only in limited numbers, although Nissan has not yet said how many will come to North America. Special Edition models will be identified by unique black-painted 20-inch wheels with red accents, a carbon-fiber hood, and a special Stealth Gray exterior paint color.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

Somehow Nissan charges six figures for a car that cost less than that when it debuted a decade ago—and hasn’t changed much since. Still, those seeking permanent seat time in the mightiest car to carry the GT-R badge aren’t worried about price. While the ultimate version is the NISMO, it costs more than the exotic McLaren 570 and Porsche 911 Turbo S. In light of this, we’d suggest the least-expensive GT-R Premium.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The 2022 GT-R’s standard twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 makes a mighty 565 horsepower. It hooks up to a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive that conspire to put all that power to the pavement. At our test track, the GT-R launched itself from zero to 60 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds. The GT-R’s quick steering, rigid structure, and adjustable suspension can make even amateurs feel positively heroic from behind the wheel. Want more? Check out the Track Edition and NISMO models with a tuned-up engine that makes 600 horsepower. The ride is firm but not punishing and, thanks to active sound cancellation, the thrum of the GT-R’s engine doesn’t punish your ear drums when cruising on the highway.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The EPA estimates that every GT-R will earn 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. However, we don’t know its real-world mpg since we haven’t tested one on our 200-mile highway fuel-economy route. For more information about the GT-R’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Inside, the GT-R’s front seats are plenty roomy but the rear seats are places only small children could find comfortable. The interior is nicely appointed and offers a host of standard features, but those seeking a high-end interior such as those of the Audi R8 or the Mercedes-AMG GT will be disappointed. Every model features a dual-zone climate control, leather-and-suede-covered upholstery, heated front seats, and more. Interior cubby storage is scarce with nothing more than large door pockets and a small center-console

Infotainment and Connectivity

Every 2022 GT-R is fitted with an 8.0-inch touchscreen that can also be controlled with a rotary knob on the center console. While Apple CarPlay capability, built-in navigation, and a Bose audio system are standard, Android Auto is not an option. Its infotainment system is easy enough to use even if its graphics and menus are not the most attractive.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

You won’t find any of Nissan’s driver-assistance features here, but to be fair, those types of electronics aren’t commonplace in most of the GT-R’s rivals, either. For more information about the GT-R’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  •  Standard front and rear parking sensors

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Complimentary scheduled maintenance might not mean much to someone who can afford any GT-R, but some rivals offer it while Nissan doesn’t. Its limited warranty period is also shorter than most rivals that offer four years or 50,000 miles.

  •  Limited warranty covers 3 years or 36,000 miles
  •  Powertrain warranty covers 5 years or 60,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

 Nissan GT-R Review

Nissan GT-R Review

“Wow!” A single expressive word that pretty much sums up exactly what every person who drives a Nissan GT-R will be thinking from the first time they get to drive this amazing sports car. In fact, this Car Loving Nissan GT-R review would not be complete without mentioning that the “wow factor” was very much in play from the time we first got to pick up the vehicle at the Group 1 Nissan showrooms in Kuils River until we dropped it off after a day’s worth of travelling through the Mother City.

The Nissan GT-R has Crowed Appeal by the Truckload!

No matter where we drove (or parked) the Nissan GT-R always insured that there was an admiring crowd close by. But it was along the windy routes of the Camps Bay roads that this powerful bird of play truly got to show its social appeal. Under the hood the mighty 3.8L twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6 engine attracted looks of lust and envy, so much so that we were unable to stop for a quick refresher just off the Camps Bay Main Road, purely because of the crowd that the car attracted with the sound of its throaty roar.

Nissan GT-R Summary

The Godzilla has finally arrived on the Indian shores. The beast in question is the Nissan GT-R, the Japanese car maker’s flagship supercar. The GT-R was born to be an everyday supercar – one you could prod around in the city and also put it to pace around the racetrack with aplomb. The R35 has received regular updates to make it go faster than the year before.

Supercars are as much about looks as performance but the GT-R refuses to follow the trend. The looks aren’t as outspoken but do exude the aggression lying beneath. The long wedge-like hood with breathing scoops, the raked windscreen, sloping roof and the flared wheel arches make it look its part as a sports car. The Skyline signature quad tail lamps speaks of the glorious lineage of the GT-R. The front lip, rear wing and rear diffuser make it look sharp and improve the aerodynamics.

The performance of the GT-R compensates for anything you might find missing in the car. The 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine is a gem. It develops 542bhp of power and 612Nm of torque through all four wheels and is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The super advanced all-wheel drive system in the GT-R allows this 1.8-tonne vehicle to accelerate from 0-100kmph in well under 3 seconds and gives it immense grip around the corners.

The safety net in the GT-R consists of six airbags, body construction with impact absorbing zones, vehicle dynamic control, traction control and of course ABS and EBD. It comes with a 2+2 seating but the rear seats are best reserved for kids or luggage. The interior of the R35 generation GT-R is a tech-fest full of computers and high-tech sensors monitoring even the tiniest of movements of the car. The dashboard is dominated by a massive screen that displays all the functions of the car.

Nissan has priced the GT-R at par with its rival, the Porsche 911 Turbo. For a similar price tag, you can also get the Jaguar F-type R hardtop, the Maserati GT and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.


Pros

  • Massive grip
  • Neck-snapping acceleration
  • Around-town usability

 Cons

  • High driving position
  • Poor shift logic
  • Still not the R36 GT-R

Nissan GT-R Expert Review

Duncan Brady

Like the soon-to-be-replaced 370Z, the current-gen GT-R is an old dog, but the AWD Nissan’s tricks are still impressive. Despite refreshes, though, the R35 GT-R has been around since the 2009 model year, and at this point we’re ready for its successor. In its current state, the GT-R competes with other six-figure sports cars including the Porsche 911, Audi R8, and Aston Martin Vantage, as well as the new bargain Godzilla of the world, the C8 Corvette.

The T-spec comes standard with several goodies that are either available on other GT-R grades or limited to the GT-R Nismo. It also offers two exclusive color options, both of them popularized on previous generations of the GT-R.

One is a new take on Midnight Purple, specifically Midnight Purple III which was applied to just 132 units of the R34-generation Skyline GT-R. Depending on ambient light levels and the viewing angle, Midnight Purple can look almost black or a metallic purple.2021 Nissan GT-R T-spec

2021 Nissan GT-R T-spec

The other available color is Millennium Jade, which was also applied to some R34 Skyline GT-Rs, 156 in fact.

The T-spec cars also come with a special Mori Green interior complete with leather-line seats featuring pearl suede accents. A quilted Alcantara headliner and T-spec badging complete the cabin transformation.

Performance upgrades include RAYS forged aluminum alloys finished in gold, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, carbon-ceramic brakes with brake ducts from the GT-R Nismo, and wider front fenders taken from the previous Track Edition.2021 Nissan GT-R T-spec

No changes have been made under the hood, meaning the car’s 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 is rated at 565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel-drive system complete the package.

The T-spec is a limited edition, though Nissan hasn’t said how many will be built. Pricing starts at $140,285, and deliveries are due to start this winter. A GT-R Nismo Special Edition is also available for 2021. It’s priced to start at $217,485. All figures include destination.

The current R35 GT-R is largely unchanged from when it was first shown to the world in 2007. Nissan remains quiet on plans for its next GT-R, the R36. The last we heard, the automaker was tossing up whether to go the hybrid or battery-electric route, though we’ve also heard that the R35 may receive a mild-hybrid setup to keep it on the right side of emission regulations until the R36 arrives.

In addition to the exclusive colours, other differentiating elements of the T-Spec include a carbon-fibre rear wing, chunky front fenders (from the GT-R Track Edition) and gold Rays aluminum alloy wheels. The T-Spec interior gets an upbeat vibe, mostly thanks to a ‘Mori Green’ layout complete with leather seats, pearl suede accents, quilted Alcantara headliner, and exclusive badging. For power, the GT-R T-Spec relies on Godzilla’s trusty twin-turbocharged V6, an engine good for 565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque. 

ONE MASTER ENGINE BUILDER

CUSTOMIZATION

From start to finish, each GT-R engine is handcrafted by its own master engine-builder in a climate-controlled “clean room.” Each twin-turbo V6 is precisely assembled from lightweight, highly durable aluminum and magnesium parts. It takes the exacting standards of the plant’s most talented and devoted engine builders to produce the engine that has redefined what a supercar can be.

2020 Nissan GT-R dual clutch

MORE THAN JUST MUSCLE

2 CLUTCHES, NO CLUTCH PEDAL

The Nissan GT-R’s 6-speed dual-clutch transmission shifts incredibly quickly. How? Inside the transmission, there are separate clutches for the odd (1st, 3rd, 5th) and even (2nd, 4th, 6th) gears. When the car is in an odd-numbered gear, the adjacent even-numbered gear is “preselected” – ready to make the shift immediately. The transmission is so smart, it even “blips” the throttle on downshifts to match rpm. So even though your left leg may not get much exercise, you’ll have tremendous fun shifting the GT-R.

Production model

Nissan GT-R debut at 2007 Tokyo Motor Show

The production version of the GT-R debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, with a lap time of 7:38 minutes at the wet condition Nürburgring Nordschleife beating the all-time sports classic Porsche 911 Turbo as Nissan stated before launching the car.[13] The GT-R launched in the Japanese market on December 6, 2007. The U.S. official launch was seven months later on July 7, 2008 for the 2009 model year. The first production GT-R is owned by Nissan’s CEO at the time Carlos Ghosn.[13] Universal Nissan in Los Angeles provided a customer with the delivery of a new GT-R, fresh from the production line at 12:01 am, on July 7, 2008. The Canadian launch was also in July 2008. Europe became the third consumer market, where it launched in March 2009. The large disparity in initial marketing between these regional releases is due to Nissan having to build GT-R performance centers where the car is serviced.

The engines are hand built by only five specially trained mechanics called “Takumi Craftsmens” on a special line at Nissan’s Yokohama plant and their names are badged on every GT-R engine. The cars are built at their Tochigi plant on a shared production line. After the production, every single GT-R will be test driven by a professional driver around Nissan’s test track.[14][15][16][17][18] Nissan GT-R was the world’s first independent transaxle all-wheel-drive vehicle.[19]

Design

Nissan chief creative officer, Shirō Nakamura, has likened the new GT-R to the giant robots of the Gundam series.[20] Nakamura stated: “The GT-R is unique because it is not simply a copy of a European-designed Sports car; it had to really reflect Japanese culture.”

Nissan’s American designers sculpted the rear three-quarters of the vehicle, while their European designers sculpted the roofline.[20]

Polyphony Digital, creators of the Gran Turismo series of motor racing video games, were themselves involved in the development of the GT-R, having been contracted to design the GT-R’s multifunction display.

2021 Nissan GT-R Performance Specs, Top Speed, and 0-60 Time

Affectionately dubbed Godzilla, the Nissan GT-R has been one of the top performing supercars on the scene for over a decade now. Here at Palm Springs Nissan in Cathedral City, CA, we love the GT-R. That’s why we’re discussing it today. Perhaps the question we get most about the GT-R is a very straightforward one: how fast is it?

Well, let’s take a look at the 0-60 times and top speed for both 2021 GT-R trims to see just how fast the 2021 GT-R is.

Acceleration and Top Speed

2021 GT-R cockpit showcase

Like the 2020 GT-R, the 2021 Nissan GT-R Nismo is the fastest GT-R model. It can do 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds. The 2021 GT-R Nismo has a top speed of 205 mph. The 2021 GT-R Premium doesn’t quite match the Nismo, but it’s still impressive. Its clocks 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. Its top speed is 196 mph. And don’t worry, just like last year, the 2021 GT-R Nismo beats the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S—one of its fiercest competitors—in a 0-60 mph sprint.

Powertrain Specs

The 2021 Nissan GT-R sports a twin-turbo 3.8L V6 no matter which trim you choose. The tuning of the engine does vary by trim, however. The Premium trim engine produces 565 horses and 467 lb-ft of torque. The GT-R Nismo is track-tuned, producing 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. Both trims have a 6-speed automated manual, one of standard features that critics continuously praise for its responsiveness. Another praised feature the GT-R has is the unique racing-developed torque-vectoring AWD system that has yet to matched by any other supercar.

The Nissan GTR is one of the most celebrated, coveted, and legendary names in performance motoring history.

In fact, on this website many of our most popular articles relate to the Nissan GTR and its various generations.

From the R32 through to the current R35, the Nissan GTR has developed a cult following across multiple generations. It has featured in video games such as Gran Turismo, as well as in Fast & Furious movies.

Many of us dream to own a vehicle with the iconic GTR badge one day, as this superb Nissan ad encapsulates so well:

Many people have taken to referring to the GTR as ‘Godzilla’. It’s a name that seems to suit the vehicle so well.

Much like the name “Batmobile” came to refer to the RX7 FD (at least in our part of the world) the name ‘Godzilla’ is closely associated with the Nissan GTR.

But why is the GTR Godzilla? In this edition of Car Facts, we take a look at where the Skyline GTR earned the Godzilla name.

R32 GTR Destroys The Competition

One of the key reasons that the GTR came to be known as Godzilla is due to the fact that it was so dominant in Motorsport, particularly the R32 generation.

The R32 GTR won races all around the world, and put on incredible displays of power, performance and precision in championships in Asia, Europe, and Australasia.

For example, the R32 GTR was virtually unbeatable in the Japanese Touring Car Championship (JTCC) winning 29 races from 29 starts in its first season. It also took the JTCC series title from 1989-1993.

In fact, the R32 GTR was so successful in Motorsport that it was even banned from some competitions in Australia, such as the Australian Touring Car championships (where it was banned at the end of 1992).

Interestingly, it was this banning of the R32 GTR in Australia that ultimately led to what we now know as the “V8 Supercars” championship in Australia (non-Australian/Kiwi readers may be most familiar with the Bathurst 1000 race, the pinnacle of Australian motorsport). As it became clear that the R32 would no longer be eligible to compete, plans were drawn up for a V8 only racing series that would pitch Holden against Ford. This – for those who don’t know about V8 Supercars – is one of the biggest motorsport rivalries in the world, and in both Australia and New Zealand you will often be asked if you are a Holden or Ford supporter.

OG Godzilla

Because of the R32 GTR’s simply incredible motorsport performance in the late 80s and early 90s, it earned the name Godzilla because of the way it smashed up everything in its path.

Why is the Nissan GTR called Godzilla? Because in its motorsport heyday, it was as destructive as the real creature!

To recap, there are two main reasons why the GTR earned the Godzilla nickname.

Firstly, when the R32 was launched it was introduced as “Godzilla” by an edition of the Australian Wheels magazine, and the name stuck from there.

Secondly, the R32 was so dominant in Motorsport that it destroyed everything in its path (a bit like the fictional Godzilla).

Because of these two reasons, the name Godzilla has stuck for the GTR.

Performance

Nissan GT-R (2017 facelift)

Nissan states the GT-R can attain a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph) and Motor Trend recorded a top speed of 313.8 km/h (195.0 mph).[110] In tests the original production model was shown to be capable of achieving 0-97 km/h (60 mph) times as low as 3.2 seconds using “launch control”. Owners expressed concern that duplicating the times achieved in these tests would void their factory warranty. Nissan’s chief vehicle engineer Kazutoshi Mizuno has indicated that he has never used the term “launch control“, which refers to the act of turning off vehicle dynamic control (VDC) and launching the car at around 4,500 rpm. However, Nissan’s director of product planning John Wiener stated in an interview with Jay Leno that “we (Nissan) actually offer a ‘launch mode'”. The GT-R user’s manual states that turning off the VDC is only meant for escaping low-traction situations such as mud or snow. However Nissan used to turn off the VDC during hot laps and time attacks. Nissan has re-programmed the 2010 model year GT-R to reduce the engine speed at launch to around 3,500–4,000 rpm with VDC enabled, which is meant to improve acceleration times. The new programming was also installed on old 2009 vehicles still in Nissan’s inventory, and is available for existing 2009 vehicles.

The updated GT-R now has a launch mode called “R-Mode Start”. Pushing the three buttons up, includes the Transmission, Suspension and VDC the car gets to “R-Mode Start”. The system allows a maximum of 4 consecutive hard launches before locking itself out, after which it can be unlocked by driving normally for 2.4 km (1.5 mi). The increased engine output of later models combined with the “R-Mode Start” has lowered the 0-97 km/h (60 mph) time to 3.2 seconds.[114] Motor Trend achieved a standing quarter-mile time of 11.6 seconds at 190 km/h (120 mph) using a US-spec 2009 model year GT-R. Autocar achieved a 0-160 km/h (100 mph) time of 8.5 seconds
