The GT-R is a legend, but a very old legend and the company’s engineers are doing an amazing thing to keep this model competitive in the segment, despite that we are talking about a supercar that has been around for 12 years. That’s too much by any standards, no matter if we are talking about a supercar like this or just a small economy car. Therefore, it’s no wonder that we can find numerous reports about the future of this amazing car. According to the latest reports, the redesign won’t happen that soon. Most likely, we will have to wait for several more years to see a completely new model. This clearly indicates that the 2021 Nissan GT-R is about to carry on in the same way. Some yearly updates are possible, but most of the things will remain the same. Therefore, count on the same design, driving characteristics, features etc.
2021 Nissan GT-R Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, we presume there is nothing you don’t know about this amazing machine. The model has been around for about 12 years, though we saw a big update a couple of years ago. There novelties in terms of the styling, but also a couple of interesting mechanical upgrades, which make this car even better performer. Visually, the 2021 Nissan GT-R won’t feature any particular change, though a couple of small details are possible.
The same thing goes for the hi-performance Nismo version. This model comes with upgrades in terms of mechanics, but with several exclusive styling details as we. Once again, bigger changes shouldn’t come.
The interior has always been one of the most interesting things about this supercar. Compared to all rivals, this model actually comes with four seats. Of course, the second row is tight, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is the only supercar with two rows of seats. When it comes to the interior design and overall quality, the 2021 Nissan GT-R will continue in the same way. This practically means being on a halfway between Spartan and opulent layout.
Many rivals look better and more luxurious from the inside, but the overall quality is more than satisfying. The dashboard looks very nice and we particularly like available color combinations. Another pretty amazing thing about this model is the fact that it features 8.8 cubic feet of cargo space, which sounds amazing for a supercar.
When it comes to standard equipment, all models come standard with leather upholstery with synthetic suede inserts, as well as with heated seats. In higher trims, you can get Recaro seats and full leather upholstery. In terms of tech features, all models come standard with things like an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, Apple CarPlay, HD Radio, satellite radio, a CD player, an 11-speaker Bose stereo, Bluetooth, and two USB ports. Also, you may count on proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
2021 Nissan GT-R Engine
Things are pretty clear hear. The 2021 Nissan GT-R will carry on with a well-known 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which delivers 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. With such numbers, you can count on stellar acceleration that goes around 3 seconds. Of course, big credit also goes to the fast-shifting 6-speed dual-clutch transmission, which sends power to all wheels.
If you want something even more extreme, you will have to pay two times more. Of course, we are talking about the Nismo version. In terms of the powertrain, it gets a nice boost so a max output goes around 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque. That definitely has a positive effect on acceleration, but the Nismo version comes with all other kinds of upgrades, particularly in terms of mechanics, where you get a completely new suspension setup and all other kinds of chassis reinforcements.
2021 Nissan GT-R Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Nissan GT-R sometime in the last quarter of 2020. Bigger changes in price are not expected, so base versions should go around 113.000 dollars. On the other side, the Nismo version goes all-away up to 212.000 dollars.
