2020 Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition revealed
To celebrate 50 years since the launch of the first GT-R, Nissan has released a GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition package. The package offers three “heritage” exterior colour schemes – blue with white stripes, pearl white with red stripes and silver with white stripes. The colours are inspired from the KPGC10-based race cars. The “Bayside Blue” is the first time Nissan is offering the famous blue shade from the R34 Skyline GT-R model on the R35.
Under the hood, the GT-R 50th Anniversary gets a power upgrade on the higher Track and Nismo variants. The 3.8-litre V6, which normally produces 565 hp and 637 Nm of torque, has been amped up to churn out 600 hp and 652 Nm of torque. All 2020 GT-R models benefit from new turbochargers which produce less turbolag.
