The 2022 Nissan GT-R NISMO Special Edition was just revealed in Yokohama, Japan. Only a “very limited number” will be available in North America starting in Fall of 2021. This will likely be the last and penultimate edition of the road-going R35 GT-R.
2022 Nissan GT-R NISMO Special Edition
A solid Stealth Gray paint will be the exclusive color on the 2022 Nissan GT-R NISMO Special Edition. Red line accents on the wheels, in the front air ducts, on the side mirrors, and along with splitter and lower side moldings also make this special edition stand out from the crowd. Nissan’s new brand logo is also on the trunk lid and wheel center caps, for the first time on the GT-R.
The car also features exclusive 20-inch RAYS forged wheels, now with a red accent stripe. An exposed carbon fiber hood stands out from the crowd and keeps the weight down.
Special Edition Engine
The GT-R NISMO’s 3.8L twin-turbo V6, rated at 600 hp and 481 lb.-ft. of torque, remains at the heart of this latest Nissan supercar. The 2022 GT-R Special Edition engine gets some specially upgraded internals that are “dialed in with tighter tolerances.” Supposedly this is to deliver “snappier revs and quicker turbo spooling.” Each engine continues to be hand-assembled by master technicians, known as ‘takumi.’ Each Special Edition GT-R will come with a takumi certification plate in the Stealth Gray paint color on the front of the engine.
Pricing will be available closer to the on-sale date in the Fall. We expect the price to be north of $230,000, as the current 2021 GT-R NISMO will cost you at least $211,000.
