It is assumed that production of the Nissan GT-R R35 Final Edition will be limited to 20 units. The model will hit the market in 2022.

Today Nissan offers the 370Z and GT-R, two of the oldest high-performance vehicles. While the former will finally be updated later this month, the latter has no plans for a generation change anytime soon. In fact, according to the latest figures from Japanese magazine Best Car Web, we won’t see it until 2023.

The R35 will apparently arrive with 710hp in 2022, when Nissan is rumored to unveil a Final Edition. By then, the model will be almost 15 years old and this final version is expected to be produced in a limited edition of approximately 20 pieces. According to preliminary information, the special version will use the same power plant as the GT-R50 from Italdesign, including its colossal torque of 780 Nm.

As a reminder, the GT-R50 uses a heavily upgraded version of the 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo engine, tuned by Nismo and equipped with turbochargers from the GT-R race car with GT3 specification. The unit boasts larger intercoolers along with high-performance fuel injectors, as well as power-up made to the 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and other major components.

It is reported that the GT-R R35 Final Edition will cost 40 million yen in Japan. That’s a lot more than the 2021 GT-R Nismo available in the United States starting at $ 210,740, but nothing compared to the GT-R50 from Italdesign and over the $ 1 million mark.
