Nissan ends R35 generation GT-R with T-spec Takumi limited edition

Exclusive variants celebrate
17-year sports car legacy in NA

(June 15, 2024) NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The closing chapter for the legendary R35 generation of the Nissan GT-R takes shape with the introduction of two limited-production special editions. Building on the changes already announced for the 2024 GT-R, the T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition pay homage to the performance vehicle that has been an icon of the Nissan lineup since its 2007 debut.

After more than 17 years of thrilling fans and exhilarating drivers, GT-R production for the North American market will sunset in October. Since its launch, the R35 GT-R has delivered supercar-rivaling performance and excitement for a supercar-beating price tag, engaging a new generation of automotive enthusiasts in the U.S., and showing many more expensive sports cars its taillights on the racetrack.

Pricing for the 2024 Nissan GT-R limited editions will start at $151,090 for T-spec Takumi Edition and $131,090 for Skyline Edition. Both models are expected to arrive at select U.S. Nissan dealers this summer. Fewer than 200 units will be available, making this a rare and exclusive exit from the North American market.

The GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition honors the eponymous takumi master craftspeople responsible for hand-assembling each GT-R VR38DETT engine. The engine badge acknowledging the takumi will feature red-etched writing, and the engine bay will house a gold VIN plate. The red engine badge signifies an elevated level of attention to precise engine tolerances and component balancing during assembly of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6.

Additionally, theT-spec Takumi Edition stuns from every angle with its Midnight Purple paint job – a reference to some of the Skyline/GT-R line's most iconic special editions.The interior trim is also finished in exclusive Mori Green.

Like the standard 2024 GT-R T-spec, the Takumi Edition also receives several mechanical enhancements, including GT-R NISMO carbon-ceramic brakes, a gold-painted version of the NISMO's RAYS 20-inch forged wheels, NISMO-tuned Vehicle Dynamic Control and wider front fenders.

The GT-R Skyline Edition brings the iconic name from overseas to the U.S. and references the abundant beauty found in skylines across Japan. Building on GT-R Premium, it wears Bayside Blue paint and features a stunning new Sora Blue interior color scheme. Once a staple of the car's color palette, Bayside Blue was "retired" after the R34-generation GT-R and revived in 2019 for the 50th anniversary edition model.

While the R35 GT-R leaves an unforgettable legacy, Nissan says it  is now "hyperfocused" on the future and the next era of exciting innovation in performance.
