  • Substantial price increases are announced for all 2020 GT-R models, with the Premium trim, now the car's entry-level model, priced at $115,235.

  • An $8500 50th Anniversary Edition package is optional, and the more focused Track and NISMO models also receive significant price increases.

  • The top-end NISMO is priced at $212,435, more than $35,000 above last year's model.

Nissan's mighty GT-R sports-car lineup has been worked over for 2020, and last year's lowest-price Pure model has been dropped, making the $115,235 Premium trim the entry-level Godzilla. This equates to a nearly $14,000 price increase for the venerable supercar killer, but its upper trim levels tack on even more clams.


New to the GT-R lineup this year is the 50th Anniversary Edition package, which adds $8500 to the price of the Premium trim. The package celebrates the history of the GT-R and its racing heritage by offering one of three two-tone exterior color combinations; it also includes a luxed-up cabin with an Alcantara headliner and numerous 50th Anniversary emblems.

The Track and NISMO models remain in the lineup but now share the same 600-hp version of the GT-R's twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 engine; the Premium and 50th Anniversary models are detuned to make a still potent 565 ponies. Track models start just over $17,000 higher than last model's equivalent, at $147,235, but that price includes a number of performance-enhancing upgrades such as a NISMO-tuned suspension, 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler.

Going all out for the NISMO model will set buyers back $212,435, which is a $35,300 price increase over the 2019 NISMO. Nissan says new turbochargers borrowed from the GT-R GT3 race car, a recalibration of the car's automatic transmission, and a weight-shedding diet plan have helped increase performance. The Japanese automaker claims the GT-R NISMO is 2.5 seconds quicker around its development track and more stable at its maximum speed of 186 mph.
