The Nissan GT-R has long been a symbol of pushing an envelope beyond preconceived limits, and its legacy continues with the unveiling of two new limited-production special editions for the 2024 model year. Joining the ranks of the GT-R lineup are the T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition, each paying tribute to the heritage and craftsmanship that define this iconic performance vehicle.

The GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition stands as a testament to the skilled artisans known as takumi who meticulously hand-assemble each GT-R VR38DETT engine. These master craftsmen ensure unparalleled precision and performance, and their dedication is commemorated with a red-etched engine badge and a gold VIN plate proudly displayed in the engine bay. The distinctive red badge signifies the elevated level of craftsmanship and attention to detail applied during assembly, making these engines highly coveted among enthusiasts.

Distinguishing itself from other GT-R variants, the Takumi Edition boasts a striking Midnight Purple paint job reminiscent of some of the most iconic special editions in the Skyline/GT-R lineage. Complementing the exterior is an exclusive Mori Green interior trim, adding a touch of luxury and sophistication to the cockpit. Alongside these aesthetic enhancements, the Takumi Edition receives a host of mechanical upgrades including GT-R NISMO carbon-ceramic brakes, gold-painted NISMO RAYS® 20-inch forged wheels, NISMO-tuned Vehicle Dynamic Control, and wider front fenders, promising an exhilarating driving experience for enthusiasts.

On the other hand, the GT-R Skyline Edition brings a piece of Japanese automotive history to the U.S., paying homage to the iconic skyline vistas of Japan. Adorned in Bayside Blue paint, a color synonymous with the GT-R heritage, and featuring a stunning Sora Blue interior, this edition captures the essence of Japan’s breathtaking landscapes. Reviving the iconic Bayside Blue color after its retirement, this edition celebrates the timeless appeal of the GT-R throughout the years.

As details and pricing for these exclusive editions are yet to be announced, we’re excited for their arrival at select U.S. Nissan dealerships in the summer as we get closer to the very end of the run of the Nissan GT-R. That’s right, the Nissan GT-R will come to an end in its current iteration following the 2025 model year, which will mark over 17 years for the GT-R generation. With both models set to be available in very limited numbers, they are poised to become prized possessions among enthusiasts and collectors alike, marking yet another chapter in the storied history of the Nissan GT-R before production ends.
