The Nissan GT-R Is Getting More Expensive (Again)NISSAN

The Nissan GT-R has been around for a while. When it first went on sale, the year was 2008, the President was George W. Bush, and the suggested retail price was $69,850. Fifteen years and three Presidents later, the 2024 GT-R soldiers on with fundamentally the same underpinnings. That long lifespan hasn't resulted in a cheaper starting price, though. For 2024, the revised GT-R starts at $120,990 before destination charges.

That's a $51,140 gain over the GT-R's lifetime, but as Autoblog notes, that's just for the base model. The mid-range T-spec model goes for $140,990. But the Nismo is the real wallet-emptier. It starts at $220,990, a full $100,000 over the base car and $151,140 more expensive than the original R35.

Of course, the 2024 GT-R isn't the same as the 2008 model. The new model does still have the same fundamental 3.8-liter V-6 it's had since the beginning, but a range of tweaks have pushed output up to 565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque. The Nismo gets even more punch. It makes 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. The power figures for both, though, haven't changed since 2020. The '24 update mostly focused on aerodynamic, styling, technology, and tuning tweaks.
