In a recent interview with an official representative of the Japanese brand, we managed to find out some details about the new generation of the Japanese supercar Nissan GT-R R36. According to rumors, the long-awaited novelty is unlikely to be presented until 2023.

Nissan recently returned to the spotlight when it introduced a new member of its sporty family, the Nissan Z. The novelty, which was revealed a couple of days ago, is called the Z Proto. Now it has become known that the Japanese automaker is going to follow the same principles with the next generation GT-R supercar.

“The goal of the next GT-R is to once again be a very reliable car like the current GT-R even after several years on the market,” said Ivan Espinosa, senior vice president of global product planning at Nissan.

“It is still a very reliable, super-fast and great sports car to drive, and we are going to continue to adhere to the same principles in creating the successor of the Nissan GT-R R35 generation.”

Rumors have hinted that the next “Godzilla” (as Japan calls the supercar – editor’s note), which is estimated to be released in 2023, will be equipped with a hybrid power plant with a kinetic energy recovery system, in the creation of which the engineers of the Japanese brand use the most modern developments.

The Japanese company has made great strides in motorsport by building powerful engines with the Gibson team. And yes, most likely, all these technologies will find their place in a completely new generation of the GT-R R36 supercar. The novelty is rumored to be powered by a heavily upgraded version of the existing 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, rumored to produce 710 horsepower and 780 Nm of torque.

Obviously, Nissan wants to unveil the latest GT-R and get it into series production as soon as possible.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote about what they said when the supercar Nissan GT-R was discontinued. Generation change of the Japanese supercar Nissan GT-R will take place no earlier than 2023. This information on Thursday, September 10, was shared by the Motor1 agency.
