Nissan GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition (2024)

Nissan GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition (2024)

The closing chapter for the legendary R35 generation of the Nissan GT-R is marked by the introduction of two limited-production special editions: the T-spec Takumi Edition and the Skyline Edition. These models pay homage to the iconic performance vehicle that has captivated enthusiasts since its 2007 debut.

After thrilling fans for over 17 years, GT-R production for the North American market will come to an end in October 2024. The R35 GT-R has been renowned for delivering supercar-level performance at a competitive price, leaving a lasting impact on automotive enthusiasts and outperforming many higher-priced sports cars on the track.

Special Editions for a Memorable Send-Off
The 2024 Nissan GT-R limited editions will start at an MSRP of $151,090 for the T-spec Takumi Edition and $131,090 for the Skyline Edition. Both models will be available at select U.S. Nissan dealers in summer 2024, with fewer than 200 units produced, ensuring their rarity and exclusivity.

Honoring Master Craftspeople
The Nissan GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition honors the takumi master craftspeople who hand-assemble each GT-R VR38DETT engine. The engine badge, featuring red-etched writing, signifies meticulous attention to precise engine tolerances and component balancing. The engine bay also boasts a gold VIN plate, enhancing the exclusivity of this model.

Visually, the T-spec Takumi Edition stuns with its Midnight Purple paint, a nod to some of the most iconic special editions in the Skyline/GT-R lineage. The interior features exclusive Mori Green trim, adding to its distinctiveness.

Mechanically, the Takumi Edition includes several enhancements: GT-R NISMO carbon-ceramic brakes, gold-painted NISMO RAYS® 20-inch forged wheels, NISMO-tuned Vehicle Dynamic Control, and wider front fenders, ensuring exceptional performance and handling.

Reflecting Japan’s Scenic Beauty
The Nissan GT-R Skyline Edition brings the revered name from overseas to the U.S., celebrating the beauty of Japanese skylines. Building on the GT-R Premium, it features Bayside Blue paint and a new Sora Blue interior color scheme. Bayside Blue, once a hallmark of the R34-generation GT-R, was retired and later revived for the 50th anniversary edition in 2019.

In these final editions, Nissan encapsulates the legacy of the R35 GT-R, ensuring it remains an enduring symbol of performance and craftsmanship.
