As for the next-gen version, Mr. Alfonso Albaisa who is the Senior VP Global Design of Nissan company asserted that the introduction of concept car was totally natural. He also drew a clear distinction between the all-new GT-R with the limited edition GTR 50.

He explained that GT-R 50 can't be considered the next version of this series as it's like a celebration for those spending time and effort to design these products. He also used the term "collector cars," not concepts as most people assume to call these editions. Meanwhile, Nissan GT-R or Nissan Q60 are truly icons which showcase the innovation and creativity of this automaker.

According to another source, the development of next-gen Nissan GT-R has just begun. The car design hasn’t even been finalized yet. However, we can be sure that the new model will remain its muscular look with a cutting-edge platform.

Nissan expects to make the next-gen GT-R the fastest car in its segment

The automaker aims to make GT-R the fastest in the segment, owing to some upgrades in electrification. The current model employs VR38DETT 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine running on petrol to produce 570 PS at max as well as a peak torque of 637 Nm. This engine is also tuned for Godzilla’s NISMO to reach up to 600 PS with 652 Nm. Though the final decision on its engine has yet been made, the next-gen Nissan GT-R will certainly surpass this performance to lead its category.

Reports said that the all-new model will soon be introduced, but the most likelihood is after 5 years to come. Nonetheless, the concept car will arrive earlier. Don’t forget to check out daily news on Naijauto.com for latest updates!
