After 17 years, the Nissan GTR R35 will be discontinued. The Japanese company Nissan announced on Friday that production of GTR sports cars for the North American market will end next October, with two special models, Skyline and Takumi, celebrating the high-performance car known as Japan’s Godzilla.

Currently, Nissan has not confirmed whether production of the Nissan GTR R35 for other markets will continue after October. Any official updates will be communicated as soon as they are available. However, even if the current generation GTR continues production post-October, it is unlikely to last much longer.

The Skyline version of the Nissan GTR R35 is based on the basic Premium model and comes exclusively in Bayside Blue with a blue interior. The price of the 2024 GTR in this special edition is 132,985 US dollars.

The Takumi version of the GTR model is a slightly modified car from the 2024 GTR T-Spec, painted exclusively in midnight purple, featuring carbon ceramic sports brakes, gold RAYS rims, and wider front fenders. In the engine compartment, there is a gold VIN plate and red writing on the exterior badges to honor the master craftsmen who make the GTR. This sports car costs 152,985 US dollars.

Both versions are based on a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 565 horsepower, connected to a 6-speed double-clutch automatic transmission, and operate with an AWD all-wheel drive system. There is no information about the acceleration numbers for these limited-edition models.

When the Nissan GTR R35 generation was unveiled in 2007, the GT-R shocked the world of high-performance cars, competing with Ferrari and Lamborghini. It reshaped the industry, forcing many other automakers to strive to surpass the innovative Nissan. However, in the years that followed, Nissan faced challenges, and the GTR received only occasional updates and two facelifts over the course of 17 years.

Nissan emphasized that although the Nissan R35 GTR leaves an unforgettable legacy, the company is now focused on the future and the next era of exciting performance innovation.
