Today we say goodbye to the Nissan GT-R

Production of the Nissan GT-R for the North American market will conclude in October, ending Godzilla's 17-year reign.

Known for delivering high performance at a competitive price, aftermarket builds can easily reach the 1000 hp mark, making the car a popular choice with after-hours drag racing enthusiasts. Nissan has confirmed that the 2024 GT-R limited-production T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition will mark the end of the R35 generation.

The final expressions of the R35 Nissan GT-R.

The final models, the T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition, honor the GT-R's legacy. The T-spec Takumi Edition features a distinctive Midnight purple paint, while the Skyline Edition is finished in Bayside blue, a color reintroduced in 2019. The T-spec Takumi Edition is named after the master craftsmen who assemble the GT-R VR38DETT engines and includes mechanical enhancements from the GT-R NISMO model. These limited editions will be available through U.S. Nissan dealers this summer, but if you want you better move quickly to secure one as just 200 cars will be made available.

Nissan's announcement highlights the GT-R's impact, noting that it has consistently demonstrated supercar-level performance, often embarrassing more expensive rivals. The R35 GT-R collected numerous performance car awards and has made a significant mark in motorsports.

Nissan says that sunsets always come before a new dawn approaches. So while the sun may be setting on the R35 GT-R and its unforgettable legacy, Nissan is now hyperfocused on the next era of exciting performance innovations.
