New 2020 Nissan GT-R announced

Updated 2020 Nissan GT-R gets new turbos and suspension tweaks

Nissan has launched a revamped Nissan GT-R to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the very first model. Updates include new turbos, suspension changes, styling tweaks and a return of the Bayside Blue colour after an absence of 17 years. The 2020 GT-R is on sale now for £83,995, with first deliveries in November.

The updated GT-R’s 562bhp twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 petrol engine gets new turbochargers. They don’t increase the engine’s power but they do improve its responsiveness at low revs and its efficiency by around 5%. Gear shifts in R-Mode are improved by 0.15 seconds.

Slowest depreciating cars on sale

Nissan has tweaked the electronic suspension to improve the GT-R’s ride and cornering performance. Improvements should also provide more precise steering.

Nissan has implemented a new brake booster that should improve high-speed braking and make it feel more controlled. Other changes include new exhaust manifolds that allow easier servicing, a new titanium exhaust muffler and burnished blue exhaust tips.

Changes to the styling include new 20-inch alloy wheels with 20 spokes and the replacement of the ivory leather upholstery option with a new grey leather interior option.

The Bayside Blue colour was retired when the R34 model of the GT-R was retired in 2002. The colour made its official return appearing for the GT-R 50th Anniversary model, announced earlier this year. Just 18 of those were allocated to the UK, making it a very rare sight on our roads.
