Published a render on the Nissan GT-R50 mid-enginedDecember 9, 2019
Independent artist Rain Prisk decided to imagine what a new generation Japanese GT-R sports car might look like. According to the creator of the image, the machine will receive an average engine location.
The current generation of the Japanese sports car Nissan GT-R was introduced back in 2007, which means that this year the car is already 12 years old. Despite the fact that the new version of the car is unlikely to appear in the foreseeable future, exclusive car options, such as the very expensive and luxurious GT-R50, give us an idea of how the Japanese sports car can develop in the coming years. The project, created in collaboration with the legendary Italdesign studio, inspired the designer, known as Rain Prisk, to draw a stunning GT-R that will get an average engine location, which makes us hope that the next-generation car will become a real supercar with an engine installed directly behind the seats .
The front of the car is very similar in design to the GT-R50 with its sleek headlights and a massive grille that is built into the bumper.
Significant changes occur in the side profile of the sports car, because a car with an average engine is now lower to the road and has wide air intakes near the doors to provide fresh air to the engine compartment.
Of course, being a car with an average engine location, its general proportions will differ significantly from the current performance of the car, and Prisk combines a smoother silhouette with large wheels hiding under more powerful arches. According to the artist, the 3.8-liter turbocharged V6 engine with a capacity of 710 horsepower (780 Nm) will be under the hood.
Unfortunately, the most recent reports indicate that Nissan has no plans to introduce the new generation GT-R in the near future. According to rumors, the new GT-R may appear no earlier than 2027, as the company has not yet decided whether the sports legend will receive a hybrid or fully electric power unit. The Nissan GT-R team, led by Hiroshi Tamura, believes that the current platform can be used without any major changes for 20 years, which basically means that a new generation of the model will not appear on the market for at least eight more years.
